About Honda CB Unicorn 150

Honda's very first motorcycle to be launched in India, the Unicorn is still the choice of many bikers out there looking for a well-handling affordable 150cc motorcycle that is also comfortable.

Honda CB Unicorn 150 Overview

The Honda CB Unicorn 150 is one of the brand’s best-selling commuters. The motorcycle has been updated with single-channel ABS and comes in at Rs 79,133, ex-showroom Delhi. Compared to the non-ABS variant, this bike is dearer by Rs 6500. The Unicorn employs a 240mm disc up front and a 130mm drum at the rear.

Even the non-ABS variant is on sale at Rs 72,633 (ex-showroom, Delhi) at the moment but its availability is until stocks last as the new norms do not allow manufacturers to make bikes for the local market that do not comply with the ABS/CBS safety norms.

Q. What is the Honda CB Unicorn 150 ABS BS6 launch date?
  • Honda doesn’t seem concerned with the launches in India, for Honda India is a dumping ground where they dump basic models and mint money. Its the fault of Indian customers that they devalue themselves by purchasing outdated technology products from Honda. As long as there are Indians who are buying such outdated tech from Honda the Honda company will continue to sell and make money and use the money from India to make better products for other countries in Asia etc. Honda Is launching latest vehicles in other countries like Thailand, Philippines, China and other Asian countries. For them India is an easy market where they can sell their outdated technology products and yet make money because we Indians are so easy to convince.
  • Mate honda did try hands on cbr250r i see it's just one of but it barely did good sales, india is a home for mostly middle class who can afford 150cc or anything under that category activa is just a new scooty as they call it affordable and as its honda so reliable. if honda gets pcx or forza or any m**i it's going to be a different game for that money we can get a geared motorcycle with higher output, bajaj for instance is value for money proposition, say Honda brings a 200cc naked or faired and adv liquid cooled they are goin to charge premium and again it wont be affordable. honda acts as bmw on any techy or a capable motorcycle.
  • The split of hero Honda is based on uneven technology sharing.Honda's market in India is based on the stereotype that Japanese makers have advanced engineering,technology etc.which may partially true but manufacturing that in India would not cost much.in the past few years all commuter models from Honda had only analog meter that to a basic one, they were not ready to add any features unless or until it is absolutely necessary. brand name decides their price making 'Honda' a high end manufacturer with low end tatics(decent engine+aged old body design,paint job,speedo,headlamp)..encourage native manufacturers..

Q. Which bike is best in Honda CB Unicorn 150 or 150 Pulsar?
  • 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.
  • Both bikes has its own pros and cons:one is stylish and the other is normal commuter with a mere change in milage.suspensions differ but not much , monoshock suspension of unicorn are slightly better than nitrox of pulsar.maintenance of both bikes is almost same, not a major difference.u just need to select the bike which suits you and your purpose, like physical specs. else performance of both is almost similar.
  • 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.

    Very smooth and reliable bike, but I am not getting good mileage. Maybe because I drive rarely. Very low maintenance cost. Light steering. Easy to navigate through traffic despite the weight. Mono Suspention helps in navigating city traffic by providing superior handling despite being a commuter bike. Brakes are good. Tyres are not too thick. Tube tyres is a yuuuuuuuuuge(Donald Trump style) disadvantage. Also, not digital instrumentation. The bike lacks latest features and thus feels outdated. The fuel indicator doesn't update immediately after you insert a key and takes few minutes or Atleast about a minute to update. Thus try to fill air immediately after filling fuel to know if fuel was filled properly. This is another shameful disadvantage of this 150cc vehicle . Even the smaller and cheaper Honda activa has this feature of instant update of fuel level. Overall, the basic suspension, comfort, braking, centre of weight and performance are a remarkable feat of engineering. However, lack of features makes the bike look outdated and the vehicle can certainly be much better. Though the overall built quality is graduating, there are quality issues. My vehicle battery had to be replying, since my vehicle didn't start after it wasn't used for just 13 days. Usually, a batter should survive for about 2 months of non - usage. Fortunately it was covered in warranty. And the fuel tank doesn't fit perfectly on the left side. It looks a bit ugly.Initially I got 45-50 kmpl but it dropped to 35-40. I complained and got it fixed. Mileage improved to 45-50. But now again I get a mileage of 35-40. Maybe because I used the vehicle once in a week only? Don't know.

    I am using this bike for more than 2 years. People who love to ride a stable, smooth and comfortable 150cc bike this is the best choice till date. Seat height is very good for people 5ft5inch to please 6ft. Short heighy people may face difficulties with this bike seat height. My height is 5 ft 8 inch and I feel so comfortable in this bike. Maximum distance I covered in a single day is 170km. Only issue I feel in long ride is seat is slightly hard. This bike is very good for seating 2 healthy adults. Seat is very long so no problem when pillion is in back. And pillion doesn't feel problem in this bike. Engine is very smooth. Gear shifting is also very smooth. I use motul engine oil for my bike so it feels more smooth. Only problem with engine I felt that the tappets are to be adjusted in every 5000kms or it become noisy. Other than that no problem with engine. Milage I get please 45kmpl. I use it daily so I will recommend it for daily commute.

    I ride bike for atleast 60 kms per day. Hence both comfort and mileage is necesaary. I have done many surveys through websites and by communicate with 150 cc bike owners {( because 150 cc bike provide more comfort than 100cc bike if we slightly compromise with mileage).Two bikes in market is best for performance and comfort Its been confusion for me to chose either bajaj pulsar 150 or honda unicorn 150. In a view of stylish and attraction pulsar can gain some more points, but in stability, comfort, maintanence, and longevity Unicorn is best for family man for long run. Also the leg position and posture of sitting in the bike is more comfort than pulsar while taking test rides. If your expected mileage is within 55 to 65 with better comfort. You can blindly chose unicorn for better riding

    In the beginning for 5 years bike was in very good condition. Later I had to shift to a place where I was not having covered parking. In that environment within 1-2 years it started rusting very fast. It fuel tank got an hole. It was the old model of honda, so it"s parts weren"t available and along with the tank I had to replace other accessories too. Wait time for original parts was 6 months so I couldn"t claim insurance. Honda"s service centers are not very great. I had done rebore of my engine as well as I had even changed it"s wheels. So almost my entire bike got replaced by a new parts. It"s resale value is very less. All in all only for first 5 years it gave me a smooth riding experience after that it sucked a lot of money.

    The comfort level on this bike is simply phenomenal!!!.The engine is adequate for city rides and might be for some occasional tours but its simply not meant for revving it to the redline. It is a bit on the heavier side which helps it remain glued to the road but on the flip side the soft suspension setup with the heavy weight robs away the handling characteristics.You cannot push it to the corners because it doesn't inspire any confidence as such.The biggest prblm is its headlight which is actually pathetic.My bike is 9 years old and still returns a mileage of around 40 kmpl which is acceptable or rather nice. This bike is great if you want reliability and comfortable rides(a pillion would also be very comfortable).
