As per the certain reports doing rounds on the Internet, HMSI is looking forward to reviving its renowned premium commuter in the 110cc segment, Honda CB Twister, this year. The model was pulled off from the production line owing to the introduction of all-new Livo back in time. In a matter of putting competition upfront for the fuel injected Hero Glamour in price vicinity, the company is in the plan of bringing the CB Twister back. Also, we could see the model CB125F as Twister 125 because of it will help in saving a lot on R&D and cycle parts for development.
Honda CB125F will be a change in taste for the buyers who had fed up with typical commuter friendly riding posture. As it is a mild street bike with sportier body language. With slightly intense fascia, the motorcycle gets minimal fairing, Livo style tank extensions and sharp tail section. The instrument cluster on the bike will be a basic unit with tachometer, speedometer and fuel indicator. There are chances, the automaker could ditch fuel injection in order to keep the pricing in check by almost INR 5000 over the standard pricing.
Powering for the Honda CB Twister 125 is anticipated to be provided via the shared engine unit from ongoing CB Shine SP. The 124.7cc, air-cooled engine will be in integration with a five-speed gearbox to churn out 10.3 BHP and 10.3 Nm. As expected, it will be a lightweight offering that would improve its performance to a next level, comparatively higher than other models available in the 125cc segment. The braking will be under the JV of a 240mm disc up front (most anticipated)and a rear drum brake as standard. In the 125cc segment, Honda is already highly popular in the Indian two-wheeler industry with products like CB Shine, Grazia and Honda Activa 125, generates volume for the brand.
