150 to 180cc motorcycles for 2014



The 150cc and above segment has witnessed a huge bump in sales in the recent years. This increase in sales can be credited to the youngsters who prefer powerful bikes as their first motorcycle. Also the 150 to 180cc segment bikes have a good amalgamation of performance and fuel efficiency which adds to their appeal. 2014 wouldn’t be much different from the past a few mew offerings would be added this year to this segment and with Hero updating its CBZ Xtreme with cosmetic and feature updates and Bajaj would finally bring in the new Pulsar 180 based on the 200NS.

Expected Price: Rs 73,000 to 75,000

The CBZ Xtreme has brought commendable success for the country’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer in the 150cc segment and for 2014 it would be updated with a few new features and revised styling. It now gets an electronic immobiliser, which doesn’t let the engine start if an in-correct key is inserted in the ignition and helps in the safekeeping of the motorcycle. Other additions on the up-dated CBZ Xtreme include new instrument cluster, restyled headlight, fuel tank, LED taillight and mobile charger point. Apart from this it also sports a side stand switch that disconnects ignition in case a rider forgets to pull up the stand before riding, which is a segment first. No changes has been made to the bikes powerplant and it would be powered by the same 149.2cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder mill producing 14.4PS of power and 12.8Nm of torque.
