Honda to launch new motorcycle, CBF Stunner
Honda Motorcycles & Scooters India is planning to launch a new motorcycle on the 30th of June.
It is expected to be a 125cc four stroke motorcycle and would feature a half fairing like Hero Honda Karizma.
Design wise CBF Stunner is exactly the same motorcycle, which was displayed by Honda at AutoExpo 2008. As you can see in the photograph below (click to enlarge), is has the same fairing, tail lamp cluster, rear set footrest, exhaust, duel suspension setup and even the clear lens turn indicators.
This bike would come as a breath of fresh air into the 125cc segment which is at this moment, dominated by motorcycles with bikini fairing. If Honda manages to price it right, it could give a stiff competition to other motorcycles in its segment.
While there is no doubt CBF Stunner is a looker, we also hope that Honda launches something similar to the CBF Racing Concept Motorcycle they had displayed at AutoExpo 2008, and which is loaded with goodies like petal disk brake, rear disk, under seat exhaust etc.
A good engine configuration (possibly CBR 150 one) would definitely give strong competition to the likes of Yamaha R15.
