Honda Stunner, the 125 cc bike from Honda has been one of the best looking bikes that ride well and come at a budget price for a while. But the good-looking bike has been present in two variants in the country-the carburetor version and the other is Fuel-Injected one. But Honda seems to have pulled the plug on the production of the latter model.
The PGM-Fi version of the bike has never been popular in the country because it costs around Rs.10,000 more than the carburetted variant. The people in the country are not willing to shell out Rs.10,000 extra for a technology that cuts down on the pollution and makes the bike start in every condition. We would rather kick start the bike and pollute more( that’s Indians personified for you )
The Fi versions of the bikes have also made their way to the Indian markets in the past but the production of those ones had to be stopped because the uage of Fuel-Injection firstly costs more and secondly when it translates to real world usage, it does not offer significant increase in fuel efficiency to jusify the costs.
We came to know about the Fi version of the CBF Stunner when we saw that Honda had removed the bike from their Indian website. The Pulsar 220 and Apache RTR 160 also had fuel injected versions but they had to be pulled from the markets as well because of the lower demand. Joining them now is the Honda Stunner PGM-Fi.
