Engine and Performance II

But, here is the interesting part, on racing parallely with Dazzler, FZ was slightly quicker in the first 3 gears when we shifted each gear at 7000 rpm, and then in the 4th and 5th gear, Dazzler showed a strong pull that FZ-S was almost 3 feet behind the Honda bike and the gap between the two bikes kept on increasing gradually. FZ S clocked only 115 kmph in the speedometer as against the 121 kmph of Honda Dazzler. We riders swapped our bikes and tried again, and the results were the same. Thumps up to the top surge of Honda Dazzler, its power to weight ratio is brilliant. Both engines never showed signs of knocking off even when riding at a speed of 20 kmph in the 5th gear. Also, FZ-S proved to be more revvy than Dazzler, but behaved a little stressful at top speeds where Dazzler’s engine was still smooth and poised.

Mid range is the strongest bit for both the engines and it is absolute delight to shift gears in both the bikes. In city riding the FZ -S will take you quicker and will prove handy to overtake the slow riders in stop go city traffic, while Dazzler engine needs a light traffic road to bring it alive. Dazzler returned a mileage of 52 kmpl while FZ-S returned a mileage of 42 kmpl on an average. FZ feels more peppier and punchier at lower gears but as we open the throttle wider, its the Honda’s Dazzzler runsaway with the medal. Dazzler is fuel efficient too outscoring FZ by a wide margin. 1-0 here.

  3. Kiren says:

    Great review man!!!

  4. Kumaresh says:

    I’ve been using dazzler for the past 5 months. It’s weightless[feeling like driving small vehicle], speedy, attractive. It’s a very excellent bike. I’m getting 55kmpl.

    Only concern is the Free service done by dealers are not upto the expectation!!

    • dazzler says:

      I got cb unicorn dazzler, the bike is really great and i felt superb comfort at 85kmph, i am getting around 55 kmpl in city roads, great engine, but the accessories i think are cheap, the bike indicator beeper lost in just 20 days and they charged rs 45 for that and first servicing i given was very poor and even i dont know the bike is washed or not, they just added some water on it, servicing is too weak.

  5. akhil says:

    Dazzler is a piece of shit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • aneesh says:

      why do think so…….m going to bye new bike, and m confused btn dazzler n FZ, i dnt which one is btr….plz help me

  6. hritik says:

    this review is biased towards Dazzler…how can dazzler be equal to fz in terms of styling…t looks like a sadistic from front….the honda amblemed tank guards r made of very cheap quality plastic n looks really hollow…as if its just lik cbtwister ,a 100cc commuterr…..i still prefer the older unicorn in looks as its atleast better than this piece of waste….i expected better frm honda as a unicorn sports concept….thumbs down unicron dazzler

    FZ is lord of the streets….YES YAMAHA

    • vijo says:

      im honda fan… But dude dazzler looks ugly to me…and poor build quality(just watch it closely). Low quality switches and digital speedo(pilot light,engine off switch pass are missing).but it got smooth refined engine than my fz s (just a bit)
      and handling both are famous for handling,stoping power both are good(i feel fz is more good :p even no back disc) then pick up dazzler wins but with high torque in low rpm fz beat back and fz got poor milege(oops) so u decide which fits u better…. Thanxx

    • vikas says:

      i agree with u,bt mileage of dazzler is the best as compare to fzzzzzzzzzz.

  7. nighil says:

      Yes AMLAN, Dazzler is really sweetheart and this bike provide excellent mileage, very smooth then other Bike with low noise engine and also this bike equipped with advance air filter. Only need to maintain engine oil after 2000 to 2500km of running.

  17. Ashish Kalsi says:

    I am reading this review a few hours before I had intended to book a dazzler for myself. Only yesterday, a friend of mine owning the FZ told me its a much better buy. I strongly refused but doubts did creep in. Thanks to this amazing and comprehensive test drive and report, I feel I’m doing the right thing now.

    Love the work you are doing. Cheers!

  18. raghava says:

  19. anil sankpal says:

    dazler is the todays best bike in the comparision of 150cc segament

  20. antonysg says:

    Honda showroom people say dazzler production has stopped. Maybe some modifications i guess.

  21. antonysg says:

    Honda showroom people say dazzler production has stopped. Will be available after 2 months. Maybe some modifications i guess.

  22. vicky says:

    dazzler is d best bikme which i ride 2day its pick-up is awesome it beats apache 160r,pulsar 150dtsi and many more……………..

  23. antonysg says:

    I wanted lightweight bike, so i had booked dazzler in July. But Honda dazzler is not available in showroom since August 2011. Showroom people say dazzler production has stopped. Why, nobody knows. They say next batch of dazzler will come only in 2012.

    Anyway, without kicker, dazzler sales were very less. Removing kicker and giving low-power 4 Ah battery in dazzler was stupid of honda. Dont compare with cars. Cars have powerful 30 Ah to 100 Ah batteries and cars have fuel-injection, which enables efficient ignition. Yamaha R15 also has fuel injection, not carburetor. Dazzler has carburetor. Maybe new dazzler will get kicker now, since new yamaha Fz-S has kicker.

    Also, I think honda is concentrating more on Activa (50%) and Twister (20%) which together account for 70% of honda sales every month and give better profit. Shine, unicorn, dazzler, dio, and aviator together contribute the remaining 30% sales or even less. I want to buy a lightweight bike, and my options are SZ-R, FZ-S, and RTR180. RTR180 has rear disk and kicker also. For big bike choice, i prefer Gs150r or Hunk over Cb-unicorn, as unicorn is outdated and lacks many features.
