2014 CB Trigger
Honda had launched the CB Trigger in India in June last year and suffice to say that it hasn’t exactly sold too many units. The CB Trigger replaced the Unicorn Dazzler and is powered by the same 150 cc engine that develops 14 hp and a peak torque of 12.5 Nm, which is mated to a five-speed gearbox.
The CB Trigger gets a digital instrument panel and LED taillights, along with a telescopic setup at front and mono shock at the rear. At its launch, the CB Trigger was available in Meteor Green Metallic, Pearl Siena Red and Black colours. At the Auto Expo 2014, the company unveiled the CB Trigger in a Pearl Sunbeam White colour.

2014 Dream Yuga
Honda’s successful 100 cc commuter bike has gone for a mild refresh, which was showcased at the Auto Expo 2014. The Dream Yuga now gets 4 new dual tone colours – Majestic Grey, Sports Black, Vibrant Blue and Sports Red.
The Dream Yuga is one of the company’s most successful models and has been continuously giving the segment leader from its erstwhile partner, the Hero Splendor, some tough competition. Honda began manufacturing the Dream Yuga at a newly setup plant in Narsapura, outside Bangalore, in July last year.
