Friends, today we will do a comparison of seven Indian bikes among the most popular and growing 150cc segment of bikes. You can call it a review of the best Indian motorcycles of 2011; of the top all-around 150cc motorcycles between 50K and 70K; or a review and comparison of Honda Hunk vs. Unicorn vs. CBZ vs. FZ vs. Pulsar 150 vs. TVS Apache vs. Suzuki GS, whatever you want. We cannot include Yamaha R15 in this bike review as it is far more expensive, costing more than rupees 1 lakh, so we will include the above mentioned bikes, namely:
- Honda CB Unicorn Dazzler launched in May 2010
- Hero Honda Hunk
- Hero Honda CBZ Xtreme
- Yamaha FZ 16/FZ-S
- Bajaj Pulsar 150
- Suzuki GS 150 R
- TVS Apache RTR (not the fuel injected one, to be fair)
I will rate all these bikes on various parameters like power, acceleration, fuel efficiency, comfort, handling, braking, maintenance, engine smoothness, ability to rev high, high-speed stability, mile-munching ability, resale value, brand value, etc. So here is the review. Vroooom!
Honda CB Unicorn Dazzler
Positives: Handling, stability, monoshock suspension, commuter-friendly seating, good for long nonstop highway cruising due to long gearing a very relaxed highway cruiser, rear disc brake, smoothest engine in any category at any RPM, free revving engine, Honda brand image, best fuel efficiency, and good resale value.
Negatives: Little power upgrade; high gear ratio (not so good for city), though having good torque it manages to keep up with other 150ccs; only four color options.
Hero Honda Hunk
Positives: Handling, comfort (gas charged shocks), high speed stability, high revving engine, great pick-up due to shorter gearing (second only to Apache RTR), Hero Honda brand image, largest service network, and very good resale value.
Negatives: Due to short gearing, top speed not the best, gets really harsh at red line, no digital gauges yet.
Hero Honda CBZ Xtreme
Positives: All the positives of Hunk, except gas shocks and 0.1 second slower in 0-60, LED taillight treatment, and the best look from rear.
Negatives: Again all the same as for the Hunk.
Positives: Monoshock suspension, great handling, widest rear tire so best grip, good low-end torque, and excellent stability.
Negatives: Harsh at top of the power band, no edge in power compared to rivals, price is a bit high considering competition matches it now on almost all parameters, fuel efficiency.
Bajaj Pulsar 150
Positives: One of the cheapest 150cc bike in India to buy, good comfort (gas shocks), DTS-i tech for low end torque.
Negatives: Looks outdated now, handling, high-speed stability, too soft suspension not good for aggressive riding, engine harsh most at red line, too common on roads, good at everything, excels at nothing, competition offers everything better at a negligible price hike.
Suzuki GS150 R
Positives: Smooth engine, 6th overdrive gear. That’s it.
Negatives: Again like Bajaj, does everything good but nothing excellent, poor service network, too simple in style.
TVS Apache RTR 160
Positives: Hooligan to drive, excellent dynamics, most flickable in city, most powerful engine, quickest and fastest.
Negatives: Though it has gas charged shocks, the ride is the most bouncy and uncomfortable tires, not great in handling all that power (TVS), engine harsh at red line, drinks fuel like it is available at Rs. 10/ltr.; due to aggressive weight forward seating posture, not good for long highway cruises and causes a lot of aches in wrists over a long drive.
CBZ Xtreme loses because Hunk does it all whatever it does and has gas shocks too, so nothing so special, except that LED tail treatment.
Yamaha FZ loses because although it's good on handling, grip and power, today's competition offers it all and is better priced too. It sips fuel as it is 180cc and delivers performance, which is good but it is not the most powerful 150cc, though it is most expensive.
Bajaj and TVS lose the battle even without fighting as competition is better in every aspect, be it looks, performance, fuel efficiency, dynamics, stability, brand value or simply any parameter you want to apply, these both need serious upgradation.
So overall if we boil down all the positives and negatives of all the bikes, it comes down to Honda CB Unicorn Dazzler, Hunk and Apache RTR as the top three final contenders. Among the top three, each one has its own appeal. So buy any one of these and you will not be disappointed.
But for me, the winners come in this arrangement:
No. 3: TVS Apache RTR: It has great performance and handling but is marred by its tires, poor fuel efficiency, and poor long-distance driving ability.
No. 2: Hero Honda Hunk: It loses to Apache in Performance but by a fraction of second only. It does everything else better, be it handling, dynamics, comfort, or comfort with long drives. It has better brand and resale value too but loses out to the winner in terms of refinement, smoothness, and by having analogue instruments.
No 1: Honda CB Unicorn Dazzler: It may not have the edge in performance, but it manages to keep up with the top performers and is not far behind, and does everything else even better. It's the first bike in India to have monoshocks, it has one of the finest handling and stability packages, now has disc brakes in the rear too for added braking power. Nothing can match the butter smoothness of this Honda bike, which revs freely and very high and remains vibe free throughout its rev range. It now has digital instruments, is the most frugal on fuel, now looks even better with new styling, is priced at par with the other two contenders, has famous Honda wing brand and it does it all in the most fuss-free manner. My money would be on the Unicorn considering that excepting performance (that too it is not far behind), it does any and everything better than the others. The Honda CB Unicorn Dazzler is the new champ in 150cc class. Now I need some comments about whether you agree or not.
Akshay Jain on July 09, 2016:
Dazzler is best due to stability and power being a mechanical engineer i must say that honda dazzler is one of the best bike in the history of honda in 150cc sagment its just amayzing that after using 4 years its maintinance cost is as cheap as a new bike its amayzingly durable and powerful but the only disadvantage is if you meet with a mint accident it is too mich difficult to find the plastic as well as other parts of this bike
This is the only disadvantage which i found in this bile i m using dazzler since 2012 and its performance is better then other bikes of 150cc sagment of that time

AKHILESH on March 08, 2014:
150 cc Best bikes in india are-
1- For fuel efficiency users- Pulsar, Unicorn, HH CBZ xtreme and Hunk.
2- For Power and speed users- Yamaha Fz, Apache, GS150R and Trigger.
Yamaha Fz and Trigger is for youth purpose and Apache is good city rider bike and Gs150R is for speed with presence of 6 th gear for hassle free highway ride. these all bikes are power and speed conscious user without any worry about mileage.
Hero Honda CBZ xtreme/ hunk is for city and highway with overall 45- 50Kmpl average. Unicorn is for slow smooth rider (not CRUSE) with best 58 Kmpl in city and highway and last Pulsar "king of 150 cc bikes" best value performer product of reliable bajaj needs an improvement and new face to maintain No1 position with 50 Kmpl city and highway rider. All 3 are most fuel efficient bikes till now.

Richie Chacko on April 23, 2013:
I am a proud owner of a Hero Honda CBZ extreme 2011 model, for the last 1 year and 8 months +, i am better than satisfied with my this bike, i have used it in urban roads and roads " that you will never ever call a road",but it has never cheated me! it is class in looks, performance wise it is best in class, maintenance wise not so expensive, Hero is givin good service to their costumers, talking about mileage, iam gettin 48+ in city ride, highway not checked but it will be definitely better. the only extra fitting i did on my bike is a pair of Roots Windstone Horn, and i am ready to go!! thumbs up for CBZ extreme !

Thanks for your valuable input Deepak and taking the conversation further.
Deepak Raj on September 07, 2012:
I own a hunk for 1 1/2 years, I also have old CBZ, i don't want to say much about him, every one knows. HUNK!! the real masculine beast!! really u feel like a king of the road, i want a best 150 cc bike, which should not be common, but must have some goodwill & image in its segment, so it must be HHH. CBZ & HUNK are two brothers of HERO motocorp, if some one not satisfied with CBZ, please don't go with out seeing this beast. Every body follows the HUNK!!

2. cbz xtreme/hunk
Deepak on June 24, 2012:
This bike(Honda DAZZY) is only for the Matured Biker .
You should not compared this bike with TVS and Bajaj Bike,those are far behind Japanese players like Honda/Yamaha/Suzuki and off course Kawasaki (After all you can't simply ignore their experience and skill on making world class bike).
I agree Bajaj and TVS bikes rules the Indian road but Japanese bike makers rules the world ,Indian bike makers need 15-20 years at least to reach their current level.
Coming to my own experience :
Two months back i bought my Dazzy though i was interested for CB Unicorn for its reliability but for long waiting period i opted dazzy(though i was not really satisfied with its looks and lack of kick start).
But after 2 months i realized that i made a right decision for taking this bike coz after every servicing engine is getting smoother and smoother .About mileage, you wont imagine i was getting 45-48kmpl in city before 1st servicing .
Guys for you information i decided to take this bike from Honda coz since 1995 i am riding bikes and not a youngster anymore.
So take matured decision and go for this bike , you wont regret for this.
TVS and Bajaj bikes are like road side fast food , looks good even taste good too , but once you have it its very difficult to digest coz of cheap food color and cheap spices .
So choice is yours .
Have a Enjoyble and safe Drive !!
Kushal on June 11, 2012:
a lot of bikes pros, cons and ad....just get CB Unicorn (only CB Unicorn), u won't regret it later.
ramasamy on June 05, 2012:
Please say something about Yamaha Fazer 150cc
Samee on June 01, 2012:
I bought a Yamaha Fz s bike last December. First sessions during the services during the services, I drived in 40kmph. Normal speed. But after 3rd service, I tried to ride in high speed. So there was a vibrate when the speed is crossing 56 - 57 kmph. Then again it is ok. But when I reach to 70 kmph its again vibrating continuously. Can't ride more speed. I'm suffering with this problem. Please if you have a solution tell me. Thanks!

give iike dea for 150 cc bike
sanu on April 14, 2012:
hunk is the best bike
Venkatesh Prabhu on April 10, 2012:
Suzuki GS150 R is the best 150 CC segment. Its the best and believable bike for long rides more than 3 - 5 hours. No shaking at 110 km/hr and good mileage too. Added to that the bike is very heavy in weight so that its making the bike not to vibrate even the less weight guys ride. I accept the service centers are less for Suzuki but the bike is very good in all aspects. Good bike those who cares about technical details about engine and long ride. Thanks, VP.
Swapnil on April 02, 2012:
Bajaj Pulsar - too common on the road!! lol ..dude!! this CANNOT be a NEGATIVE point.. Are so many people FOOLS to buy PULSAR?Unicorn dazzler to pulsar ratio on roads would be 1:1000, so don't talk rubbish..
spiker on April 02, 2012:
Honda cb unicorn is the best no other choice....
tejas k on April 01, 2012:
i think suzuki GS 150R is the best bike in 150cc bikes, this bike is best for riding to top speed, because of 6th gear it does not vibrate like others 150cc bikes at the top.its looks also good, not stylish but suitable like unicorn.good milage, low maintenance,good sitting arrangment. and also suzuki is also good brand image.
suzuki GS 150R is number 1 bike for performance in 150cc bikes.
K.K.B. on March 31, 2012:
IS THERE ANY ONE WHO CAN HELP ME FOR CHOOSING THE BEST BIKE AS FOR MY FIRST BIKE. MY OPTIONS ARE

Tips while buying bike
1.first check out your budget
2.get the information about miledge
3.get the information about performance like pick up and top speed and controll
4.do a test ride of your selected models
5.buy the best one which you want
note:- Don't go with any one all will be saying my is good my is good. Dnt belive people saying vibrations in bike and all. Just take a test drive and if you found vibration and lack of controll or power on road terminate it frm ur list.
RIDE SAFE AND WEAR A HELMET OR U WILL BE NO LOGER TO EVEN POST A COMMENT THAT MY IS BEST MY IS BEST

Foysal on February 23, 2012:
Pulsar is the best
TVSurya on February 20, 2012:
TVS XL Super is best bike... very stelyes and Good millage.
yuva on February 16, 2012:
my vote for fz
antz on February 15, 2012:
Fz16 is the best bike for city, so easy to turn and ride, good design and quality. Mileage is 40.
SZ-R also is good for city riding, nice and light. Has kicker now. Best price.
Apache and Pulsar are meant to ride fast. If you ride Apache and pulsar in slow traffic, then you need more use of clutch and gear changes. Frequent clutch use results in clutch wear out fast.
But if you want to ride fast, Apache is best, that too RTR180 is best. Apache can tolerate high speeds and rough riding for long.
If you ride unicorn in full speed like Apache, then unicorn will become spoiled soon. Unicorn is meant for normal speed. But boring bike, no features, overpriced.
Hunk/cbz are a bit rough compared to unicorn, but have no kicker now. Pillion seat is too high. Only good thing is rear disk brake.
Dazzler is light, small and delicate front suspension, but costly. No kicker. Only good thing is rear disk. Again, if you ride dazzler very fast, it will get spoiled soon.
Gs150r is all rounder, can ride slow in traffic and ride fast on highways. Good strong bike.

Munavvarkhan on February 07, 2012:
I appreciate your views of positives, cons, etc. but Just wanted to tell you that Every bike has its own limitations and its own excellency, I am doing lots of research to buy my first bike in 150cc segment, however I am attracting to only dazzy, however i have rode pulsar 150 dtsi, apache, hunk, cbz xtreme, suzuki gs, But it is lacking only in its look, WHICH I CAN SUGGEST YOU THAT IF YOU WANNA SHOW OFF OR WANNA LOOK GREAT ON IT THEN YOU CAN MODIFY IT AS A SPORTY BIKE, second thing that some people say the spare parts of it are very poor and poor service they are getting. SO WANNA GIVE YOU SUGGESTION THAT YOU CAN CHOOSE THE PERFECT PLACE TO GET SERVICING FOR YOUR DAZZY AND IF YOU DO IT REGULARLY YOU WILL GET LOTS OF IMPROVEMENT IN IT viz. mileage, smoothness, etc. So now you can think that if you wanna make worth of your money, think a ton and if you are interested in 150cc then go for this one. The another thing is you should also kept in your mind that if you are electing 150cc bike then you should not think for mileage. So better you should keep one thing in mind that if you are buying any bike then apart from its positives and negatives you should consider your height-body as well. Rest I can tell you is that AAl the best, but think twice thrice putting all things in mind once you select to bike to purchase....... AAl d best ?
Shuchi Vrat Sharma on February 06, 2012:
Dear All, I will say Honda Dazzler is the Best product in 2 wheeler sector (150cc segment). I have Honda Unicorn From last five years. Its Design and smoothness (in case of very less noise and vibration)attracted me. If i talk about power i am from hilly area and observed that it is good in power rather then pulsar 150cc It is very good in fuel efficiency in 150cc bike segment.I have rides on Bajaj Pulsar, TVS Apache and hero Honda hunk. These are not comfortable in long running and gives nonadjustable feeling.
So HONDA is the Best in this range and provides full value of money. Now I am expecting 180cc bike in Honda..........
Gunasekaran on February 04, 2012:
recently i owned rtr 180 abs while am on going nearly 110 speed suddenly a women crossed road without watching ,,,,for my luck i switched on my abs and it help me greatly to stop my bike without any damage to me and her....and also i avoided skiding....i love apache....
john hayls on February 02, 2012:

Venkat on January 20, 2012:
How can one say FZ is loosing competition.
In looks, no other bike matches it.
bapi on January 18, 2012:
honda cbr 250 is best of my knowledge but rate is higher
It is BeSt................
Rahul on January 12, 2012:
The best bike is Fiero in INDIA
george on January 05, 2012:
hh hunk is the best......
unicorn is also better than dazziler
siddharth on January 05, 2012:
pulsar-u cant go wrong with this bike.rightly said something for everyone.totally hi tech in gizmos.but it has to be maintained well for superb performance & mileage.
dazzler-great engine but looks are very boring.honda is safest choice among all.jack of all trades.
apache-if performance is your holy grail better go for 180 else be ready to spend higher amount on servicing.depends on your riding style offcourse.good for show offs.yellow color is the best looking
hunk-my personal favourite & is the most balanced bike in terms of all criteria.bit heavy so flickability goes for a toss.mileage is in the top order with great looks & reliable engine.
yamaha fz-looks are real killer but with so many bikes going around it is no longer unique.if you don't have a rich dad or earning in the 30-40k range give it a miss coz u don't want to sulk at petrol pumps.do you?otherwise beats competition black & blue in every aspect.
unicorn-better option in dazzy.good for 30+ guys.
achiever-targetted at rural areas.ordinary looks
gs150-no idea.looks are great.
szr-good looking bike with above avg performance at fabulous price.good bike for people in first job.
honey on January 05, 2012:
HTC wildfire have a very poor performance and needs more & more maintainense
Nishant on January 04, 2012:
Both the FZ and the Dazzler are neck & neck with the RTR following close behind. However these bikes are mostly targeted towards the youth & enthusiasts in the 22-30 age bracket. Hence it goes without saying that pricing plays an important role. The RTR is the least expencive of the lot. If you are looking for cheap thrills & performance is what you seek, head to the nearest TVS showroom. But it has its own little flaws. For instance it isn't very comfortable for long rides and with the engine spinning hard, vibrations can be bothersome.
The FZ has secured a soft corner in consumer's heart for the way it looks and the way it rides. How I wish it had some extra punch and a more efficient engine. What also goes in favour of the FZ are the additional variants on avail, the FZ-S and the Fazer, but of course for some extra dough.
Suddenly everybody's focus shifts to the new kid in town, the Dazzler! The extra goodies, features & performance you get in the Dazzler are simply put, worthwhile. It looks snazzier, comes with wider tyres(as compared to older Unicorn), a rear disc & a semi-digital instrument console. All these without losing out on the essential fuel economy part. It might not be the best looking or one with the best performance, but like its sibbling, the Unicorn, the Dazzler proves to be a perfect all rounder, capable of playing various roles depending on a consumer's preference. Not really dazzling, but versatile & appealing enough to win this shootout by a whisker!

i this APACHE RTR 160 is a superb bike for Indian roads, it looks gr8 ...Honda bikes ie Unicorn , Dazzler looks boaring ..Yamaha nees lots of maintainance...
so for Indian roads Apache is the best :-)

No1 talks about suzuki gs..its an amazing bike above all..in my opinion hero honda will officially end its technical support from honda in 2013 and after that the services of hero will suffer alot..being a mechanical engineer i am sure that indian tech is far behind then japanese tech..suzuki and honda are best option..they have high quality refined engines..and obviously there after sale services are always superb..
And please don't go for a pulsar or a hunk..

Hero Honda is a joint venture of HERO & HONDA which was ended this year. Hero Honda & HONDA both are having their brand image.. but there is no Hero Honda now. lets see whether Hero will reach the butter smoothness of HONDA or not. Bcoz, it is impossible for any Manufacturer in the India to get the butter smoothness of HONDA..
When it comes to engine & performance.
HONDA is the champion of all the time.
