Stunner was a game changer for the motorbike industry. Honda has crafted this product to draw the attention of 150 cc bike seekers over this muscular 125cc bike, and the bike did the same. The looks and posture of this bike are great and offer comfort to its rider. Hero MotoCorp, on the other hand, introduced Ignitor to grab the market of Stunner and other 125cc motorbikes, but this doesn’t turn out in the real scenario. People didn’t like its naked styling, but the genes of the bikes are same and the reliability issues are with Hero. It’s not at all a big deal to choose any one of them as they both are same. The differences are with the headlight mask and dashboard.
