    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.
    • Bajaj Pulsar 150 is obviously a good choice for many reasons out which the most important is that Bajaj is our brand. After that it is an impressive bike with good throttle response, less vibrations, having good mileage and it's components are easily available in market. I don't know why people say that Bajaj doesn't have resale value. As far as my experience with bajaj I've enjoying the bikes. I am very much happy with my discover 135 and Pulsar 150 and both have now completed 14 years and the journey of more than 1.8 lakhs KMs and still I didn't bother about engine. just change engine oil time to time.
