Honda CB Twister Review
I purchased it last year satisfied with performance but no power, no mileage and noisy.But looks are good if you can exceed rs 6000 to 8000 then try pulsar 135 gud bikes with gud looks and features and mileage is 5 kmpl less than twister but doesnt matter if u want comfort ride and noise free bike with features.But u cant compare build quality of bajaj and honda everybody knows in build quality honda is best (a main point which cant be ignored).
This bike is meant for its style at cheap for youngster enjoy ride with girlfriend, not for ladies or aunties. its a good sports bike at low price, please clear about sports bike, naked bike and commuter bike. Honda hardly fail.
