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 Its the fault of Indian customers that they devalue themselves by purchasing outdated technology products from Honda. As long as there are Indians who are buying such outdated tech from Honda the Honda company will continue to sell and make money and use the money from India to make better products for other countries in Asia etc.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 For them India is an easy market where they can sell their outdated technology products and yet make money because we Indians are so easy to convince.
  • 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..
  • Not just in the case of Honda, these accusations can be also follow up in the case of nissan-renault- mitsubishi trio and also in the case of toyota as they have stopped launching new models for indian market. Renault is the only company which is holding the ground for the trio. Nissan is struggling all over the map. If they are atleast able bring back there legendary sportscar like the R34 skyline gtr, and a new gen 370z maybe the long awaited 400z to market as soon as possible they could get out of the hole they dug deep.

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.

  • It is not true don't spread the fake because of you cheap people gets wrong information and spread it if information is right then why don't you mention the source of information. as i am working in honda they are going to launch it soon.

    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.
