Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India has just launched its all-new CB Unicorn Dazzler. Based on the Unicorn Sports Concept displayed at Auto Expo 2010, the new bike will sell alongside the recently updated CB Unicorn.
The Dazzler sports a modern design borrowing cues from the attractive CB1000R and is sure to appeal to younger buyers. Design highlights include a smart bikini fairing and well executed floating side cowl. The bike’s compact instruments console features a digital speedometer that sits besides a racy, large analogue tachometer. A two-tone seat leads up to the bike’s stylish tail. The bike will be sold in four colour options.
The CB Unicorn Dazzler uses the same carburettor-fed, four-stroke, 149.1cc, single-cylinder and air-cooled engine that powers the CB Unicorn. However peak power has been marginally bumped up to 14bhp at 8500rpm. Max torque is 1.3kgm at 6500rpm. An MF battery and viscous air filter also find application on the new bike.
Like the older CB Unicorn, the Dazzler deploys a diamond-type frame and uses telescopic forks up front with a monoshock rear suspension. Braking is via a 240mm front disc and 220mm rear disc brake.
To be made available by the end of May, the bike has been priced at Rs 62,900 (ex-showroom, Delhi). Honda has stated it expects to sell 1,20,000 units of the CB Unicorn and CBB Unicorn Dazzler in the coming year.
