Few months ago, we reported about Honda working on a 160cc new motorcycle that will be positioned in the premium segment. The launch, which was expected to take place in September , has now been pushed to early November.
IAB reports that they have confirmation from the top honcho of the company, that this new motorcycle won’t carry any design elements from the CX-01 concept motorcycle, which was seen at the 2014 Auto Expo. This new 160cc motorcycle is expected to replace the CB Trigger, which is a 150cc motorcycle. Ironically, the CB Trigger was launched to replace the Unicorn Dazzler that failed to make a dent in the segment. But looks like, the Japanese manufacturer has failed to understand this segment.
Once launched, this bike will sit above the CB Unicorn and below the fully-faired CBR150R. Currently, we have no information if this motorcycle will be based on any current platform or whether it gets a new platform. Honda is tight-lipped about the technical specifications of this bike, but it will compete with the Yamaha FZ S FI and the recently launched Suzuki Gixxer.
