    Q. Which bike is best in Honda CB Unicorn 150 or 150 Pulsar?
    • Despite being present in the market for more than 15 years, the Bajaj Pulsar 150 still remains the king of the 150cc segment. The Bajaj Pulsar 150 still remains a great option if you’re looking for an entry-level 150cc motorcycle. The motor offers likeable performance with a hint of brashness which made the Pulsar brand so popular among the youth which still remains a well-rounded motorcycle. On the other hand, the Honda Unicorn might not possess the same visual pizzazz of the Pulsar 150, but what it does offer is a bulletproof engine which is frugal as well. The Unicorn 150 is a better bet if you spend most of your time riding in city traffic and the engine refinement offered is still the benchmark in the segment.Do take the test ride for both the bikes in order to pick the best matching your needs and requirements. Moreover to check the detailed comparison follow the link given below: https://www.zigwheels.com/bike-comparison/bajaj-pulsar-150-vs-honda-cb-unicorn
    • Personally I like both the bikes because both the bikes are really good at there segment both bikes share almost same specifications,both are value for money, you gona get good performance also from them, but honda will go little heavy on your pocket then bajaj...it's your choice all though but if you love less noisy bike then go with honda cb unicorn because all other things like maintenance ,services are very similar but little more you have to spend on honda.
    • Unicorn 150 is way better than Pulsar , due to its riding position , you will get back pain after a few years, you can sit straight and ride , which is good for a City with traffic jams , and if you go long distance like more than 150 km ,then also you will ride it very comfortably ,and talking about suspension , it has good suspension technology.In India there is famous saying "yatha naam tatha gun" it suits this bike .

    Q. What is the difference between Pulsar 150 Neon and Pulsar 150 Classic?
    • The basic difference between Pulsar 150 Neon and Pulsar 150 classic is that it gets subtle colour accents that heighten the motorcycle’s visual appeal. The classic Pulsar styling has been carried over, but these few visual updates to add a hint of premiumness, enough to differentiate it from the standard motorcycle. Apart from graphics upgradation, there is no change in mechanics and pricing which is the same as the standard bike, making it a nice value for money proposition.
    • Neon silver model is termed as classic. neon also has two more colors, neon red and neon lemon green. both of them is same.
    • But are the same only the colour difference is their its ur desicison what is urs choice
