CB Unicorn is powered with Honda 4-stroke, 150cc engine and incorporates many cutting-edge technologies developed by Honda’s global R&D team. It sets new benchmark in the upper majority motorcycle segment in India with its swift acceleration, superior mileage, international styling, riding comfort and convenience.
Blaze to Brilliance
CB Unicorn is engineered and styled for the taste of the younger generation. With the 4-stroke, 150cc engine delivering a whooping 13.3 bhp, CB Unicorn is the fastest motorcycle in India racing from 0 to 60 kms per hour in a mere 5 seconds. It has a distinctive sporty and macho design with a racy front face, masculine fuel tank with knee grip and a sleek rear cowl.
Enhancing safety on the roads is one of Honda’s top priorities. The company firmly believes that the realization of a comfortable and an enjoyable mobile society depends on the mutual trust that automobile manufacturers like us share with the consumers and society. Honda uses a three prong approach based on : preventing accidents from happening in the first place, minimizing injury in the unlikely event of an accident and Driving Safety Promotion operations. Honda’s safety philosophy emphasizes the development of appropriate technologies for its products, so as to ultimately achieve maximum riding comfort for its customers. Honda was the first manufacturer in Japan to develop and apply the anti-lock brake system. Educating the world, Honda is actively involved with driving education across the world for promoting traffic safety.
Engagement that Enthralls
The Honda Unicorn was the first motorcycle offering from the Japanese bikemaker in the Indian market. It was the first mass produced motorcycle to be offered with a monoshock suspension in India. Ever since its launch, the Unicorn has been a hugely popular model in the 150cc segment and has clocked decent sales numbers. Two other 150cc offerings in the form of the Honda CB Dazzler and CB Trigger were launched after it but both the bikes couldn’t achieve the same success. But with the Unicorn being on sale for almost a decade without any serious update, Honda decided to replace it and for this purpose introduced the Unicorn 160.
CB Unicorn offers perfect balance of pickup and mileage. It delivers Super Mileage through its famed 4-stroke Honda engine, cutting edge technologies like Multi-Mapping CDI, Tumble Flow Combustion Chamber, Roller Rocker arm, and a Classy Aerodynamic Body. This engineering masterpiece with international design appeal, guarantees to quench thirst for motorcycle frenzies with all its stunning features.
The new motorcycle carries forward the same design language of its predecessor with its neutral lines to attract the mature buyers. Having said that, there are some neat touches in the form of the fuel tank extensions, 3-D Honda logo and H-shaped LED tail lamp which is the standout design detail. Switch gear quality is standard affair with decent quality but the engine kill switch has been given a miss, which is just unacceptable at this price point. The instrument console is all-digital one with a neat layout and is easy to read while in motion.
