The bike has very little resemblance to the old CBZ, the headlights got a completely new design. However, new looks is a little small for a bike of this size. The first thing that one would notice in this bike is the indicator lights. Both the back and front indicators merge with the main lights and it looks really nice and unique. The side part of the bike also got a significant face lift.
The coloured body part connects as a single line from the tank to the tail lights and is very nicely contoured. Another feature which adds to its cool looks is the grip handle bars for the pillion riderâ€¦ standing out as two individual horn like bars, it adds to the uniqueness of CBZ. Also the silencer is new and improved. Other things which adds to its beauty are: tubular diamond-frame type chassis with a single down tube and a box-section swing arm, matt-black powder-coated engine block, matt-black alloy wheels, Black plastic lower side panels striped across by a shiny chrome sash, split hand grips for the pillion rider with a distinct look. Additional Teflon coat over visible silvery surfaces, a strip of clear glass above the headlamp conceals the parking lamp or pilot lamps positioned above the headlight, body coloured rear mirrors adds colour to the handlebar area. Classy, brushed-steel console finish and further rugged knee recesses built into the large, shapely fuel tank with Xtreme's logo emblazoned across its sides, aircraft type fuel tank lid, deeply contoured seat.
This is bike is provided with non-metallic bright colours. The dash board has 3 dials, one for the speedometer, one for the rpm indicator and another for the fuel indicatorâ€¦ all of them descend in the order of the size. The shock absorbers do not have the Gas shock absorber unit as it is advertised in Hunk and other bikes. It has the Advanced Microprocessor Ignition (AMI)System. Tail lamp cluster has a segmented stop-and-brake light section with turn indicators built into a single unit.
