Hero Honda launches the 3 refreshed motorcycles and 1 refreshed scooter just before the festival season 2008..

This post (and a few more in the coming days) is meant to chronicle the launch of motorcycle(s) in India between May-Oct 2008 (the period during which "The Bike Chronicles of India" was briefly inactive)..

Hero Honda had made an official statement that 12 new models would be launched in between mid 2008-2009. True to its words Hero Honda launched 4 new "Refreshed" models from its existing range of motorcycles. These new models are..

  • CBZ Xtreme

  • Passion Power Pro

  • Splendor NXG

  • Pleasure (Scooter)

Posted below are pics of the new 2008 CBZ Xtreme..

According to Economictimes,

"The company on Sunday (19'th Oct 2008) rolled out self start versions of 100cc bikes Passion, (Passion Pro Power Start) and Splendor NXG ; a refreshed new CBZ Xtreme (150 cc bike) and refreshed Pleasure (100 cc gearless scooter).

The 'Passion Pro Power Start' is priced starting at Rs 44,000 (ex-showroom Delhi) and the newlook Pleasure would be priced at Rs 36,950 (ex-showroom Delhi). The company has, however, not disclosed the prices of Splendor NXG self and the new CBZ Xtreme."

There are no Engine Upgrades in any of the models. The Passion Plus gets a new Electric Starter which is a welcome feature. But what do you guys think about the new "refreshed" stying of the "new" 2008 CBZ Xtreme..??

Is the dual colour alloys stock? Looks silly ;) but then again HH never fails to amuse me.. whether its the looks of the cbz-x.. or whether its the PLUS naming which has become synonymous with 'STICKER UPGRADES'.. or whether they're using dancing film stars as their brand amby's... :) If they help sales, good for them.. that's the mentality of their target audience :)

That's right bro... The consumer is the one to blame.

If the customer says "NO", why won't there be a change..??

I am running away from that green thing. This can be the most avoidable green creature after algae.
HH doesn't have rights to torture people to this extent.

Not at all impressive.
What a bike lover wants is........
1).Rear Disck Brakes,
2).Digital Meter,
Please forwant this comment to HERO HONDA GROUP.


cbz extreme looks great amazing while sitting and holding the handle it makes the rider feel great,digital metre makes feel boaring after few days,but the cbz's metre is old type but gold type,milege is satisfactory 50-55 in cities,its more comfortable and smooth in highway's,its look is very good,stylish and also very suitable for modifing ,over all its the best one in the recently launched bikes,superb...... belivie it and buy it

CBZ xtreme is the best bike in its class i.e 150cc with ultimate engine performance, style looks, handling and every thing a rider wants... And above all this it has the lowest maintainance wen compared to any other bike of this class...!!!

its good but embaracing because it dont have any rear disc brakes and either with a digi speedometer but its stylish good looking great colour dude purchase one of those

Gowtham said...

Rear Disc brakes are not Good are advisable for indian roads. So front discs are enough.

It it a nice bike,but the only thing that shuld be changed is the dashboard. a digital dashboard will suite it better.
Just think about it.
