Hero Honda Hunk VS vs Yamaha SZ-R
The 150cc motorcycle segment is where the action is, and not without reason. Sales figures are rising every month, and the profit margins are also handsome. The 150cc story in India began with Hero Honda?s sporty CBZ which rolled out in 1999. Not one to be left behind , arch rival Bajaj Auto took performance biking to the masses with its iconic Pulsar 150 in 2001.
A decade on, the 150cc segment has mushroomed into three sub-segments, at various price points. You can buy a fuel efficient 150 for around Rs 55,000 to Rs 65,000, slightly sportier, still affordable motorcycles like the Bajaj Pulsar or TVS RTR, or then aim skywards for a top-of-the-line, tech-laden 150 like Yamaha?s YZF-R15, priced at Rs 1,10,000.
