    the spares for the hunk are a pain in the arse to get!! the brilliant hero service does not help either... they make you wait saying "within 2 days" and before you realise, you would be dying of old age.

    I have been the only customer for hero who orders atleast some spare every month and still they never give it before 1 month....

    however, I feel, you have a soft corner for the hunk (no! i dont mean the human Hunk ). go buy it buddy, you wont regret it...

    actually, to be very frank, except for the clothes, its every bit a unicorn / dazzler / cbz Xtreme / acheiver.... so get any of these and basically you buy the same level of engineering

    HUNK also offers tubeless tyre shares same engine of unicorn.

    hunk has same reliable engine of unicorn.offers good mileage[45-50].looks good.handling bit on heavier side but straight line stability is commendable.having said that hunk does not offer cool blue backlit speedo ,clip ons,cool lock set like cbz.it's upto you what do you choose.

    Hi EagerBiker

    See Unicon will be the best bike to buy and another awesome bike which you can buy is Apache its fully power packed bike and also has very goo resell value. I would recommend this bike.

    threadstarter didn't like pulsars seating position,so apache is not recommended.tvs ridiculously has poor resale value.
    and the question remains why do i race?

    I too was looking for a 150cc bike since a month. After much or reading, discussions (online & offline) and scratching head I finally booked a Hunk a few hours backs. Stock was available and they would have given the delivery today itself, but I could not get document xerox attested. I do not have a practical experience riding Hunk or Hero's service.

    From what I understood in last few weeks, I had zeroed in on Dazzler, Hunk & CBZ Xtreme. Hunk and CBZ Xtreme is the same thing except that CBZ has a bit different rear suspension, looks and higher cost. I dropped CBZ from list for the cost and the seat height difference between the rider and pillion which I thought will not suit my parents.

    Finally I went for Hunk because of the looks (compared to Dazzler) and many complaints that I read about Honda's service, spares and dazzler's MF battery.

    I hope this will help you in selecting your bike if you have not already bought one....

    congrats on your booking vishnunn.hunk and cbz have almost same saddle height for pillion,it's just that cbz 's is split type.wish you a happy ownership experience with your hunk.
    and the question remains why do i race?

    Default CBZ Xtreme or Honda Dazzler

    Hey guys,

    I'm Arjun, 18, and I'm 5'8" and 60kg. I'm relatively new to riding, and have been riding only for a month. I'm looking for a bike that will mainly be used for short trips here and there, and will take it to college once a week (40+40=80km commute). Mileage and comfort of pillion rider are main priorities, and I've shortlisted Dazzler and CBZ Xtreme.

    While everyone suggests the Dazzler is a more sensible buy, I love the looks of the xtreme. I've ridden only the Dazzler, and the bike that i rode seemed unstable at 80kmph. Many told me there'd be some problem with that particular bike, and it usually doesn happen in Dazzlers. Is this true ?

    And I've heard suspension in the xtreme is a bit stiff. Is that true ? Which bike is more suitable for a highway cruise ?

    Default Suzuki GS150R

    you should go for Suzuki GS150r, it is one of the most comfortable bike in 150cc with FE of 55+ which i think no 150cc bike is giving with features like it.it easily cruizes at 80 kmh with least engine sound in 150cc range. it has six gears which give more stability to engine due to which mileage is high.
    it has buttersmooth gears ,it is made for commuters, due to sixth gear it gives a boon on highways.
