8 Honda CB Dazzler to be launched in May 2010

Honda to launch a new sportier and premium version of its Unicorn, says Autocar India..

After Honda had made some cosmetic changes and renamed its Unicorn as the CB Unicorn for 2010, I had presumed that the Unicorn Sports Concept that was shown at the 2010 Auto Expo was probrably just that. i.e a concept and might not make in production.

I can be sure that the new bike will most probably also sport the "CB" prefix..

But recently Autocar India broke out the news that a new sportier and premium version of the Honda Unicorn is about to be launched in May 08, 2010, which according to their sources say will be called "Dazzler". When Autocar India contacted a senior HMSI official, they declined to comment on the new bike but said that there will be a launch in the beginning of May.

A couple of days back I had posted scoop image of a motorcycle undergoing endurance test on the roads of Manesar (place where the HMSI Factory is situated). Now it becomes almost sure that the Unicorn Sports Concept is getting launched..!!

Now whether there will be any changes to the engine remains to be seen. The Sports Concept shown at the Auto Expo had 17" wheels (unlike the 18" found on the Unicorn.. opps the CB Unicorn) and had a digital speedometer and a rear disc brake. The rear tyres are also speculated to be of tubeless variety and a width of 110 section (the current Unicorn sports 100 section rear tyre).

Whatever might be the new specs of the bike, I can be sure that the new bike will most probably also sport the "CB" prefix like all the other Honda motorcycles in India..!!

Insane Honda Management!
I already booked CB Uni. (After waited for 3 months for this model!)And now not sure which model did I get.
Why the hell they didn't anounced dazzler instead of CB Uni?
Seems Honda India's senior management imported from Govt. of India, as they even cant stickups to their innitial plans. And wish public should buy the product which is just renamed of old one without bother to inform them. Totally Silly man!
Parent Honda Japan should look into the MISmanagement of Indian operations, and stop chitting Indian customers. Afterall working of HMSIL only blackoutened Hondas global image.

@Gautam, the news is not yet 100% confirmed till now.. moreover if it's a new model, there might also be a price difference as well.

So lets wait till May first week

Hmsi is very disappointing with unicorn upgradations
Just look at Activa and Stunner , they have got a descent makeover and were launched after unicorn , but unicorn is still not up to the segment challenges.
Even a 135 pulsar produces 13.5 bhp , why unicorn still has a 13.3 bhp limitation .If the bike does not produces more then 14 bhp (or top speed of 120+) then its a waist of a gem of a machine.
