Expert Review

Honda CB Twister is one of the most desirable offerings by the Japanese manufacturer in the country. In a country like India, this motorcycle is a perfect buy as it offers best in class styling with a reasonable price tag. The motorcycle certainly improved Honda’s sales figures and is still one of the most popular offerings in Honda’s Indian lineup.

Twister comes equipped with a 109.19cc, four-stroke, air-cooled engine that comes mated to a 4-speed gearbox. The motor delivers a peak power of 9 bhp at 8,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 8.97 Nm at 6,000 rpm. The engine uses a viscous paper filter for breathing and comes to live by an easy electric start and a kick start. The bike can reach a top speed mark of 89 kmph and delivers a decent fuel economy of 70 kmpl, as claimed by the company.

The company also offers it with 240mm front disc brake as an option. For comfortable riding, the bike is fitted with telescopic forks up front and spring loaded hydraulic shock absorbers at the rear.

The front profile incorporates a sharp headlamp section with a black colored small visor crowned at its top. The fuel tank is chiselled impressively and looks stunning with the integration of side cowls. The analog instrument cluster comprises of speedometer, fuel gauge, trip meter, odometer and the usual telltale lights.The bike has a sporty and well-cushioned seat which provides upright comfort to both the rider and pillion. Coming to the rear end, it carries a black colored rear grab rail that enhances the overall sporty look of Twister.
