    I searched through the forum & found nothing about the CBZ Classic..

    So come on guys, all the proud owners of CBZ Classic lets discuss & share our riding experience in this thread

    I ride a 2001 model CBZ classic fitted with K&N & 120 size tubeless tyre @ rear which has done 72k Kms till now.

    I m getting a mileage of 35-38kmpl both in city & highways..

    Overall was a decent package when I bought it way back in 2001 when hardly any other options left apart from Suzuki Fiero in 150CC segment.

    Err.. isn't that a bit too late in the day? Anyways the CBZ will always occupy a special place in the hearts of bikers even when various newer and sleeker models try to come and compete in the market segment that was launched by this classic bike many years ago. Seeing one redlining gives me goosebumps even today!

    It was like a voluptuous lady Mast in her ride with those big fat tyres.

    The rear rim was/is the heaviest till today in under 200 cc class category.

    The crankshaft has enough stoutness which would last many years and then even retire some of its owners. It can also handle upto 27 PS of power thrashing upon it to run, and run for ever.

    'A Boss' of bygone era had once described her as 'Orgasimc' during their first date.

    The Engine was also described as 'Indestructible', which was rightly said as it was being pumped at only 8.5 compression.

    It came with a PD22 carb, the best for power in the business for thumpers of this size till today (albeit with a small venturi).

    It has also the only ultra short-stroke engine from Honda in India.

    It was not a killing machine but was a machine which allowed people to taste the fruits of modern biking.

    It is still a great bike if kept properly with some tweaks here and there and has the capability to smoke many other bigger bikes.

    He he he.. I wasnt sleepy & was going through Praveen's log of his great Journey round the India

    8yrs done with this bike & I neva regret the decision ( as if I had many choices when I bought it )

    I almost end up buying Suzuki Fiero but dropped it due to charming looks of CBZ which attracted me & then after sometime when I test rode fiero I though I m missing a gem & bought Fiero in 2002 which is also still running & now with my Uncle..

    Proud to have owned 2 classics

    Dear Abhi,

    CBZ was the one that started this 150cc segment which is till today highly popular among all breed of bikers ranging from high-schools to retirees.

    I still remember that ad of CBZ of Dino & his brother, it was a perfect ad to showcase how this bike is in terms of everything.

    Today, U see how the market is flooded with 150cc category, one manufacturer is having 2 models in same range... Buyers are getting so much choices that they are planning for something & ending up riding something.

    Everybody knows good things about this bike, here I will try to list out some negatives of the bike.

    1. Most Unrefined engine ever made by Honda in India.

    2. Bad Mileage - Although most of the owners like me dont complain about it but still it never gives more than 40kmpl however U drive it..

    3. Kicker slipping - I dont know if any other has faced this problem but I am facing it the kicker slips very badly which is due to Kicker spring which I tried to change twice but did not help me.

    Kicker spring costs only 13bucks but to change it we needed to open the whole engine which costed a bomb 2500 INR.

    4. according to me Top End is not satisfactory..

    5. too much of Vibes post 50kmph

    6. Engine heating Issues.. ( Every mech I consulted told that it is common in CBZ Classic)

    All said & done but I still love my babe
