Honda Launches CB Unicorn Dazzler


Honda Motorcycle & Scooter has launched a new version of the Unicorn.  The CB Unicorn Dazzler is priced at Rs. 62,900/- (ex showroom Delhi) and will come with  five speed transmission, digital instrumentation, 17 inch alloy wheels and rear disc brake. The bike is Bharat Stage III emission compliant and is available in four colours – Armour Gold Metallic, Pearl Siena Red, Pearl Nightstar Black and Sword Silver Metallic. According to Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI), the Dazzler will give a mileage of 60 kmpl. The company will continue to sell the existing Unicorn, which is priced at Rs. 59,285/- (ex showroom Delhi).

“The 150 cc segment of the Indian motorcycle industry has grown over two-fold in the last three years and it is expected to grow at this rate. This new Unicorn will help us in achieving more market share in the coming days,” Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI) Operating Head (Sales & Marketing) NK Rattan said.

The Mumbai launch of the Dazzler is on the 14th and we will be covering it. If you want to ask Honda officials any questions, just drop your comments below.

    My question to Honda Officials:

    Honda has costliest But most powerful bike in 100cc segment : CB TWISTER

    Honda has costliest But most powerful bike in 125cc segment : CBF STUNNER

    Then why didnt they maintained this in 150cc , with this model ?

    Like, CB DAZZLER WITH HIGHEST BHPs ?

    what next from herohonda? a splendor 150?

    but honda, a real nice move compared to the stupidity of bajaj. but still not much impressed with the design.. instead of keeping clones with slight modifications(honda’s mod is huge), u can give birth to new babies with varying names and design.

    @chetan,
    no it does not have a Fi engine. same old unicorn engine with some tuning. the added things are those new seats, digi speedo and tubeless tyres. rest remains the same

    Digital Speedo is looking good, rear disk is ok but not need for such a under powered bike, tubeless tyres are a welcome, design is worst when compared to Twister, the back break lever is again the worst which hits some the big speedbreakers in Chennai, foot peg and riding style still in a commuter type and titled as unicorn “SPORTS”. Overall looks is not bad, but Dazzler should not stand near FZ-series or Apaches, because you like it or not these bikes are designed with the best details. Dazzler is no where near these bikes.

    it seems like they think that we will not come out of the commuter segment mindset
    they have never changed the engine for the past five years

    Unicorn is a great bike, but one thing which i dislike most is the seating postion which is like a 100cc commuter bike. It is really disappointing thet they have retained the same seating posture in this bike tooo, Hoda please launch a sport bike, u already have a powerful commuter bike, Unicorn.

  • Raghav May 13, 2010, 3:11 pm

    hmm..i was waiting for tis bike with some expectation like the power and looks but had a rough idea of how its gonna look, from the concept vehicle displayed and it pretty much looks like they went ahead with the concept bike…i guess it is targeted only for college students, to be frank the current unicorn looks more sexy and sophisticated than the dazzler..
    anywayz i will make the payment for my booked CB Unicorn and wait for another couple of years hoping tat honda will release thr first 200cc bike by that time.
    till then i will njoy the Honda engine on the CB Unicorn

    have been waiting since long for a new launch of the Honda Unicorn but was disappointed as the new version does not have a Kick starter which is very essential when the battery drains or the starter fails.

    currently using a 2007 unicorn when it was new I had been into embarrassing situations because of the starter solenoid switch which used to malfunction causing the starter to keep running even with the key removed,and bike on, the switch was changed twice but the problem was not solved, then my father who is an auto electrician did an alteration and fitted an old Lucas Solenoid switch which used to come in the old Premier Padmini cars and now it has been almost three years and not a single problem from the starter, also upgraded the battery from a 7 Amps to 9 Amps.

    I’m very satisfied with the bike and its performance it has done 40000+ Kms and still running.

    Good work Honda pls maintain the brand image because of which customers select your products, do not disappoint them.

    Regards

    The prob is that there’s an unbelievable waiting period of 6 months for CB Unicorn at authorized showrooms in Mumbai.The smaller dealers charge Rs. 8000-10000 extra if you want instant delivery!
    I have been waiting for the Dazzler ever since the Auto Expo. Will I be able to get the bike as soon as it launches in Mumbai or will I have to face the same “waiting period” problem as with the Unicorn?

    Hi, guys, have to tell you one thing:

    I went to the Honda dealer to buy CB Unicorn 150cc on 14-May-2010, the same day that Unicorn’s new avatar Dazzler was launched.

    They had displayed a black Dazzler in the showroom, and at the very first look I thought it was the ugliest bike in India.

    Guess what? I went ahead and booked the good old vanilla CB Unicorn. It looks much better and self-assured.

    Comparison of Dazzler and old Unicorn:
    ======================================

    1.) The front head lamp of Dazzler is the ugliest of all bikes! Old Unicorn is much beautiful. Ditto for the rear lamp.

    2.) The side cowls attached to the fuel tank is made of cheap plastic. It looks very ugly, just like Hero Honda Hunk. Old Unicorn has a very elegant looking fuel tank.

    Also, the main fuel tank of Dazzler is the ugliest of all bikes – it is so narrow like a dog’s back.

    3.) The LCD speedo console in Dazzler is the ugliest of all bikes. Don’t believe me? Go check out yourself! I personally prefer the meter console of old Unicorn. Simple, sturdy and effective.

    4.) The rear tyres of Dazzler are more thicker. Well, who cares? Unicorn is not about sport, but power commuting. In any case, Dazzler with Unicorn engine does not have the firepower to utilize those tyres. Instead, Dazzler’s mileage may drop because of the thicker tyres. Useless addition!

    5.) Dazzler has rear disc brake. Again, who cares? You will not appreciate the disc brake if the bike is as ugly as Dazzler is!

    6.) The drive chain is uncovered (Horror of Horrors!) For a bike that is inheriting most of Unicorn, how can they compromise on reliability?
    Old unicorn with covered chain is more appropriate.

    7.) Seating posture and engine pickup of Dazzler is exactly like Unicorn.

    ========================

    Conclusion: Honda should have introduced a real sporty 150cc bike. Instead it has copied and destroyed Unicorn’s legacy with this stupid Dazzler.

    My advice: Stay clear of this non-sense pretender called Dazzler. If you want a sports bike, buy Apache or CBZ Extreme. But if you like commuter bike, choose between good old Unicorn and GS150R.

    If this honda unicorn dazzler is in 180 series.. it will be the beast in riding segment.. i like this model very much especially the 17 inch alloy, monoshock and rear disc brake features.. the company should have given clip on handle bars instead of this common handle bar.. rest all features are good. looks are similar to hero honda hunk.. but this model is much better than old unicorn model.. Sword Silver Metallic i like that.

    This is a much smaller baby unicorn, which is very overpriced. Old unicorn had 18-inch wheels but this has smaller 17-inch wheels. It is not sporty because it does not have clip-on handle bars. It is not an exective/family bike because of half chain cover.

    Honestly, if this bike was made by Bajaj or TVS, we all would be condemning right now. Dont praise it just because it is a Honda.

    It is not a streamlined commuter like old unicorn or new Suzuki Gs150r, nor is it macho-looking like Apache or Pulsar, nor is it stylish like Fz16. Even the twister looks better. This is meant to dazzle the village folk, which is primarily herohonda’s market.

Even the twister looks better. This is meant to dazzle the village folk, which is primarily herohonda’s market.

    Honestly, tata is giving Nano car for 1.25 lak. At 75k for a small 150cc bike, its really overpriced. Actually, all bike makers are cheating 2-wheeler buyers by selling 150cc bikes at cost of 70k to 75k.

    Do honda think the body of dazzler will be reliable? Honda could have taken some more intrest in the look and body design of much awaited Dazzler? No Led rear tail lamp/ No Macho look/ no Aggresiveness in bike its seems to be nuts, bolds and junks parts set to gather to built a bile, apart from the Engine, everythink is a piece of junk. Honda come up with some bike next time.

  • amit_26 June 11, 2010, 5:05 pm

    I would like to share my observations regarding CB Unicorn v/s Unicorn Dazzler.

    Many people say that following additions are worth it for additional 4,000 Rupees :

    (1) Digital Console.

    (2) Tubeless Tyres

    (3) Rear Disc brakes

    (4) Tweaked Engine.

    (5) Maintenance Free Battery.

    But we should also note the following:

    (1) Digital console is in lieu with Analog which consisted of 3 numbers of Independent meters.

    (2) The tyres are now smaller by 1-inch in diameter. Also the rear tyre is wider thus giving more friction. Also there is a substantially visible gap between the tyre and the body which looks odd.

    (3) Few people have raised Apprehensions that the rear disc break may cause skid due to sudden stoppage.

    (4) Tweaked engine is Nice thing…. but if you observe closely then the sound of CB Unicorn engine is still better than Dazzler.

    (5) MF battery is a good Move. But note that the earlier battery had a 7-AH rating where as the new one has only 4-AH rating. Considering only Self-start , this may be an issue …. And remember, you can always replace the ordinary battery of CB Uni with MF battery anytime in future.

    (6) Honda has reduced the size of bike in all the dimensions – lenght, width, height, ground clearance and wheel base.

    (7) Made the bike lighter and thus took away 8 kgs of metal as compared to CB Unicorn.

    (8) They have raised rear tyre in such a way that now fitting a “saari guard” will give a bad look.

    (9) Most Importantly they have removed the KICK !!!

    (10) They have replaced a big, nice looking and attractive front Vizor(in front of the console) with a small and ordinary looking vizor.

    (11) The 3-D Honda Wing on the tank which was a Hallmark of the looks of the bike has now taken a beating. In CB Uni it is visible from many sides. but in Dazzler it looses its visibility from many angles.

    (12) When you are the driver , you feel the seat lower that the CB Uni.

    (13) When you are the pillion, you feel raised and the legs positions are not comfortable.

    (14) The petrol tank has been shrunk in size, capacity and LOOKS !!!

    (15) They have also removed the full chain cover and just placed an upper strip like those in bicycles … again doing some cost cutting and material saving.

    (16) When you see the bike with two people sitting on it from a distance … it looks like a small bike …. unlike normal Uni which look big even if three people hop on it.

    (17) Honda should have worked harder on design part to make Dazzler look very different from Twister.

    Considering the above I don’t feel that additional 4,000 are worth it.

    I had Booked Unicorn but when I heard a new Model is coming, I didn’t take the delivery of CB Uni and waited a month more for Dazzler … but honestly I am more disappointed instead of being “Dazzled”….. now I will have to wait a month more to get my all time great and favourite CB Unicorn.

    3. is it not at all good for a pillon ? (including old people as pillon…)

    Hi Chetan,

    Well I am not sure why the regular Uni looked powerless to you ?
    Take a test drive and your myth will be solved.

    And also its not a bike for age old people as you feel … those people prefer Honda Shine instead of Unicorn.

    Its just that Unicorn has a matured and sophisticated broad look where as Dazzler has a Sporty and sleek look.

    About your queries:

    (1) At least for engine I can say that it will be reliable as its a Honda engine.

    (2) Since its unicorn engine (little tweaked) so be assured of a mileage of 50 Kmpl … u may even get more depending on ur driving habits.

    (3)Well… in order to give a sporty feel , the pillion seat is raised and little narrow. So old people MIGHT find it “comparatively” uncomfortable (as compared to regular Unicorn) to hop on it and sit for longer duration.

    Every thing aside… at the end its the personal choice and liking !

    @Amit,
    Thanks a lot dude.
    I have already booked unicorn. But i ll get a test drive before i receive d bike anyhow.

    Y i felt uni was not so powerful compared to dazzler was, Dazzler can have a stand at high speeds with pulsar n fz but not uni as its top speed is 101.
    but dazzler can go upto 115 as mentioned by showroom people….

    What’s d top speed u achieved in uni? i ll wait for ur reply….

    hey this dazzler has a self start “only” right. !!!!! wat if the battery fails, and u need to start the bike.
    ther is no other option!!!
    so my question is Can a kicker be added to it??????????

    @Chetan

    Unicorn has 13.3 Bhp and Dazzler has 14 Bhp (a 5% increase). Uni might seem to have a marginally less pickup that pulsar etc but then it has good acceleration at High speeds. It might take a while to go from 0 to 40 but from 40 to 60 takes no time.

    People have driven Uni upto 11-115 Kmph without vibration.

    @ Rino Raj

    No there is no KICK start and also it can’t be added later on. As far as failing of battery is concerned, the showroom people say that Maintenance Free (MF) battery poses less problems.
    If the battery fails then u can start the bike in the same way you start a car when its battery fails…… LAGA RE DHAKKA RE.

    No offense to anyone …. but now a days i m observing that Honda showroom guys are trying their best to promote Dazzler and showing less interest in praising otherwise much-praised Unicorn.

    I am more confused on the existing CB Unicorn and the new Dazzler. I am a person who rides long distances almost everyday. Which bike could I choose for the right confortable seating position (I mean I shoudn’t feel any body stress after riding for hours)?
    Also can we have a full chain cover fitted for Dazzler as an option? Plz reply.

    CBZ extreme and Unicorn. Both these bikes features five-speed gearbox – a one down, rest up shift pattern. Unicorn scores over CBZ X- Treme in being economical, Unicorn returns a combined fuel efficiency/mileage of 52kpl as against 48kpl returned by CBZ X-Treme. Unicorn is meant for performance savvy and CBZ X-Treme for power savvy.

    Reply
  • vikas June 18, 2010, 9:49 pm

    X- Treme is more powerful and comes with loaded features while sporty unicorn symbolizes performance and makes sense for practicality (even after named sporty). If you look for a sporty bike to intimidate your friend then choose CBZ X-Treme but if you are a looking for a family bike pick the Unicorn.

    @ Chetan
    Unicorn has been till date the best bike i have ridden in the 150cc category. The top i have touched on a Unicorn is 120kmph without any extra fittings.
    Had a Test ride of the Dazzler & it was a total Turn Off…….didnt expect Honda would reduce it standards in such a manner.
    As far as the performance is concerned…have a regular oil change and keep it well maintained and it could give you a mileage of 55km on a litre….
    @ Anoop Sathyan
    My daily run is around 60-70 kms in a day. Trust me on this one and the Unicorn has not given me a single trouble till date. And on some weekends i do make it a point to hit the highways and do atleast 120-140 kms at a stretch. The only point you need to remember is that if your constantly doing long trips your bike would need more attention and have it checked regularly, which will increase the life of your bike.

My apprehension is how to start the vehicle in case of the electronic ignition failing to respond, especially during rainy seasons or at any other time! The same question posed to the dealer did not evoke a convincing response. Hope to receive a reply on my e-mail at the earliest.

    Honda Dazzler is a great bike when it comes to fuel efficiency and great 0 to 60 pickup. Normally, the 150 and 160cc bikes can make 30 to 35 kmph in 2nd gear in a normal drive (not pushing hard), but Dazzler touches 40kmph in 2nd gear with out any problem. Everyone who test driven this bike could have felt it comfortably.

    I was driving Apache RTR 160cc for past 3 year (I was the 3rd person to book this bike in Chennai), it touches 33 kmph when pushed hard in 2nd gear. But, the engine of the bike is not reliable as Honda’s. Of course moderate re-sale value. Still, Apache RTR rules. I love Apache’s performance which can’t be compared with any other bikes in this category. I miss my Apache RTR 160cc, 15.2 bhp, 130 KMPH top speed.

    I purchased the DAZZLER with some doubt because it has no kicker. Now I have completed 3 months and faced NO PROBLEMS due to lack of a kicker. In fact the starter has not failed even once, even after 3 idle days. So no problems at least for now.OK, think of it as a CAR (hence no kicker) !!!! The bike is nimble but stable also. Styling could have been better !
    At kottayam the vehicle price was Rs.65000/-. On road price more than 70k. I got the vehicle spot delivered ’cause there was stock. Dunno the position now.

      Vicky, get the Dazzler, it will serve you very well and the kick not being present is not a problem as the bike has maintenance free battery. If the self does not work you can push start the bike. Self not working can be due to various reasons and the cost of repairing it varies on the problem but mostly it is covered free if your bike is under warranty.

Its around 53kmpl and as in a casual ride it touches 50km speed without any noise. Its a smooth biking. I bought red color. But the draw backs are of the honda company. It does not provide assosaries which is not even number plates and bumper and saree guards. All its costs. The on road price is 73k and the extras it comes to 75.

    Hi all..i have bought uni dazzler on May 31st…Completed my 6 months and it has crossed 4500kms…Only one word i can say is Awesome or excellent or great….now i m feeling the slogan of Honda “I Enjoy the Quality”it has very smooth engine with comfort riding…. its definitely a gud upgraded package than old unicorn…the wider rear tyre,sexy digi console,power increment and tubeless tyre gives u a pleasant driving and sporty look…paying just 4000 bucks extra u get thise upgrades than older Uni which is good value for money thing… In City riding i acheived mileage of 52…Depends on driving style..but it gives around 50-55 kmpl in city riding conditons…In top speed(60 – 70kmph)also bike doesnt makes noise and vibes..feels like flying….only doubt is it doesnt have kick start..oly elec start..i ve doubted and scared while hearing first..after enquiring dealr he said ..it comes wit MF battery and sure ther will be no prob for 4-5 years in battery….gear shift is really smooth and easy….braking is excellent…one more thing i like to clarify is here i seen in several posts that rear disk is risky and tough for fresh new first time riders…But the truth is rear disc is not powerfula s front one…i’ve felt rear dis is some wat 20 -30% sharper than drum brake…but ther is no question of riskiness in rear discs….on the whole its a sporty commuter,…..my top speed is 116 kmph..i m very much satisfied…it simply overtook old uni in all aspects…while comparing to

    pulsar(Poor performance and engine and no comfort..only style) and
    gs(rust prob and relaiablity of engine) and
    fz(Better and good style – but fails in mileage and high price)..

    Dazzler is better in all aspects…but it can beat the style of fz..but in performance and specs wise it has comparitively better than above 3…so guys go for it and Have a enjoyable riding…

    Some Issues i faced in my 4500 kms of journey wit my Machine
    1.Sometimes i face this..not all the times..wen i m driving in 5th gear it automatically shifts to 4th gear…
    2.In Winter season have to use choke for starting…
    3.My Clutch cable has got cut aftr 20 days of purchase and they have replaced me for free of cost..
    4. Engine gets very heated after some 10 to 15 mins of drive for first 2 months…. now its ok…heat reduced…5.the vibrations i hav faced it in initial stages…but now if i go at 70kms also no vibs and gearshift is so smooth like slicing the butter or boiled egg

    Tips for Good maintanence of Dazzler :-

    1. Do timely service

    2.Jus lubricate u r chain 10 days once..it will b gud..This is Important.

    3. For Better braking u shud apply both front and rear if you go beyond 40 kmph

    4. For Good Mileage .. Daily Morning after starting the bike leave the bike in Idle engine running condition of 1500 rpm..It allows Engine oil to flow through all parts of Engine fully..Start riding after doing this.. Dont Use Clutch Frequently..Use it wisely..

    5.Each and Everytime u giv for Service jus tell the service person to check the MF Battery health and Recharge it fully for avoiding Battery related problems..This is very important since u hav to rely only on elec start…

    6.After your free services get over – Dont go for Honda service after that…Prefer your Good Local mechanic..BCos honda service mechanics are not so good.

    From my Experience i hav crossed 4500kms…it got very smooth……….its like grape wine man…as days pass it will taste gr8…sure u will feel aftr crossing 3000kms….Dont Read my review and take decisions…U Jus go to the showroom..test ride the Dazzler ..andd u urself will feel the difference from other bikes…Take a wise decision..

    if any issues or queries mail me to sun_vijay2003@yahoo.co.in or sundar3030@gmail.com…bye..

    My experience so far:

    BATTERY PROBLEM:
    1. Battery is not reliable (failed at day 1 for me).
    2. If not in use for 2 days, you have to use choke to start. People staying in cold regions (delhi) may find it worse in winters.

    On day 1, battery was not working after a while and had to start by pushing it.

    Went to the showroom next day and they said it was a connection problem which they fixed.

    Again, the same issue occurred and the battery was down by evening. I had to start by pushing the bike which is not possible in traffic. Its a real pain.

    Went to the showroom third day and they replaced the battery. It has not failed so far (1 month now) but who knows, can’t rely on it anymore.

    REAR BRAKE: Rear brake is really bad compared to drum.

    I am unable to stop the bike using rear brake from just 40 kmph within 10 meters. Its feels little risky to me especially if you have to stop the vehicle suddenly.

    Honda explanation: All disk brakes are like that and will be fine after 200 km.

    I did 200 km and nothing changed.

    Gave the vehicle for service and then rear disk brake was not working at all.

    Honda explanation: Since water has gone into the brake, it is little less. It will be okay after a day.

    It was okay after riding a day but now the question is what will happen in rains? Isn’t it quite risky.

    GEAR NOT SMOOTH: I did not find the gear to be smooth and it would give a feeling of hardness while shifting from higher gears to lower ones. I changed my gear lever from the toe only to heel shift for comfort. Now, I find the gear stops at neutral when changing from 1st to 2nd. Really annoying.

    Seems like everybody is having one or other problem. Certainly, Dazzler is not a product one would really love :(

    However, in my opinion, the biggest problem is the dealers not willing to accept that there is a problem. Rear brake is really very bad as I said, cant stop the vehicle even at 30 kmph. But the dealers are not ready to accept it. Seems like I’m stuck with a dude.

    I feel the handlebar to be little heavy, especially during turns you can feel it falling on the side you are turning and you have to kinda life it back. Anybody else had this issue?

    Hi friends i’m an ardent fan of Honda (now). I’ll give you a clear picture of which bike is better. I & my friend has both CB Unicorn & Pulsar. CB Unicorn – Better comfort, mileage, durability. Pulsar- Comfort (not upto the mark), mileage (?), durability (not steady). I waited for more than three months for CB Unicorn and at last got the bike. I don’t regret for waiting since it is better than any other bike i have rode and i’m telling you this from my heart. I had CBZ, my friends had Apache and GS150R. We all drove each others bike and came to a conclusion that all of them liked CB Unicorn. CB Unicorn has a uniform weight all around and the jerk is well-balanced even if the bike is in full throttle. We all went for long drive and everyone loved to drive CB Unicorn. Once you pass the third gear you wont feel the engine sound, it’s so smooth, no wear & tear for long-term (Guaranteed). It is trendy too for youth’s and good value for money. I strongly recommend everyone to buy CB Unicorn especially the Pearl Black. There was once this saying that “Honda stays longer than your best friends” i agree to that quote now.

    Maintainence-free battery means no need to top-up battery frequently with distilled water. This means less work for showroom mechanics during service, but for the customer it means nothing. The lifespan of ordinary battery and maintainence-free battery is the same. Cb Unicorn has 7 Ah battery, but dazzler has only 4 Ah battery. So, battery in dazzler is of lower Amphere, so it will discharge faster. I agree unicorn is good bike, but dazzler is not. Dazzler without kicker is not reliable.

    If we have kickstart, if battery fails, we dont have to run to mechanic immediately, as we can kickstart the bike, so we can continue our work and go to mechanic when we have time. Without kickstart, if battery fails, you have to leave all important work and go first to mechanic to get it fixed. Car owners are obviously richer and have money to spend on mechanic frequently, but can bike owners afford frequent trips to mechanic??

      I agree with that complete. So far over 6 months, I’ve got 2 such instances of battery being dead, one on the second day of buying the bike.

      Secondly, I have had tremendous problems with mileage. I have been getting 40 kmpl or less. Went to service center at least 20 times. Finally, complained in Honda website and they asked to give the bike to the service center. They have done something but not sure whether the issue is fixed. I’m testing the mileage now.

    Honda dazzler production has stopped. Nobody knows why. Since Aug 2011, dazzler is not available in showrooms. Next batch of dazzler expected in 2012 only. Anyway, without kickstart, dazzler was not selling. Maybe new dazzler will get kickstart.

    Manoj:

    I’m getting a mileage of 40 kmpl despite of multiple repairs they performed to improve mileage. They claim the mileage to be 60 kmpl.

    Also, the so called maintenance-free battery stopped working 3 times in last 1 year and since there is no kick, you have to push the bike to start it.

    Price is Rs 77000 on road Bangalore.
