Honda CB Trigger unveiled.


Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Ltd. (HMSI) has unveiled the CB Trigger, a naked streetbike and sequel to the Dazzler. The new CB Trigger takes some styling cues from the full size CB1000R, and is a naked 150cc streetbike, purpose built to thrill the Indian market. The CB Trigger will sell alongside Honda's popular 150cc Unicorn in the competitive 150cc market space.

The CB Trigger is a street focused motorcycle which bears resemblance to the Yamaha FZ series of 150cc bikes. The CB Trigger headlamp sits encased within a sharp bikini-fairing. The CB Trigger comes with a chunky, well sculpted fuel tank, with twin pseudo intakes set below. It provides an amber backlit digital instruments bay that includes a speedometer, odometer, and cascading tachometer. The CB Trigger's LCD display reads out fuel-level, and offers the convenience of a digital clock. Only minimal body panels and decals adorn the zesty looking new motorcycle.  

The CB Trigger is a muscular, modern looking motorcycle, with 6-spoke alloy wheels. Much of the bike including its engine and frame are all finished in black. The new Honda provides a fully enclosed drive chain for optimal protection from harsh Indian riding conditions. There's also a maintenance free battery. The CB Trigger taillight is a smart looking, stepped unit.

The  CB Trigger deploys a four-stroke, 149.1cc, single-cylinder and air-cooled engine similar to the unit used by the Unicorn, allied to a 5-speed gearbox that shifts in a 1-down and 4-up pattern, via a heel-and-toe shift lever. The carburetted CB Trigger makes maximum power of 14bhp at 8500rpm, while peak torque is 1.28kgm at 6500rpm. Peak power and torque are available relatively low in the power band, to help make the CB Trigger a practical 150 for use in congested Indian traffic conditions.
