Hero CBZ Extreme/ Extreme Sports

Hero CBZ Extreme/ Extreme Sports

Hero does not have its very own built 150cc bike from ground up. They are still using the same Honda underpinnings in all its bikes therefore we won’t count Hero in touring. However if you have those bikes the feeling would be same as of Honda Unicorn.
