About Honda CB Unicorn 160

The new Honda CB Unicorn 160 is the latest offering from Honda and is the third motorcycle in the 150-160cc space in Honda's line-up, in addition to the Honda CB Unicorn and CB Trigger.

Honda CB Unicorn 160 Overview

Honda has passed on the GST benefits to its customers and prices for its two-wheelers have dropped between Rs 300 and Rs 700 depending on the state of purchase. The Honda Unicorn 160 is the replacement for the Unicorn 150 which is among the highest selling 150cc motorcycles in India. The Honda motorcycle was recently updated with AHO and is also now BS-IV emission norm compliant. The new BS-IV version Honda Unicorn 160 is priced at Rs 73, 552 for the standard variant while the CBS version carries a price tag of Rs 76,005 (both prices are ex-showroom, Delhi). The styling of the Unicorn 160 is conservative to appeal to the mature target audience. The H-shaped taillight is a neat touch to the rear. While the overall design is pleasing, it isn't something that one would drool over. The Unicorn 160 also features an all-digital instrument console but disappointingly it doesn’t get engine kill switch. The Unicorn delivers a mileage of around 50kmpl in real world conditions. Aside from the difference in the looks department from its older sibling, the CB Unicorn 160 sports a new engine too. The 163.7cc, single-cylinder motor makes 14.7PS and 14.6Nm. Which is 1.4PS and 2Nm bump over the CB Unicorn 150 and the CB Unicorn 160 is 10kg lighter than its older sibling. The bike has a 5-speed gearbox which is employed via a heel-toe type shifter. The Unicorn employs a diamond type frame and employs monoshock suspension at the back like its predecessor.

Q. Which is better is unicorn 150 or unicorn 160 in fuel effiency
  • A little clearance regarding fuel efficiency between any bikes, lower CC bikes are more fuel efficient than higher CC bikes. So even with a difference of 10CC it will be different with small margin.
  • Yes I think unicorn 150cc which I use it's 1year old and more good in mileage then 160cc.
  • All Honda models in the 150 / 160 cc segment is good at fuel efficiency.

Q. Which is best between Honda SP 125 and Unicorn BS6?
  • Both the bikes have different price range engine specifications. If we talk about Unicorn BS6, the fuel-injected, air-cooled engine produces 12.92PS and 14Nm. The power output is identical to the Unicorn 150, but torque has gone up by 1.2Nm. It still continues to employ a 5-speed transmission. The Honda Unicorn has always been the go-to bike if you were planning to buy a 150cc commuter. The BS6 update has given the bike a larger motor, while retaining the dynamics of the older bike. It still remains a well-rounded motorcycle, but the BS6 update has come with a hefty price hike. On the other hand, Honda SP 125 BS6 is powered by a new 124cc single-cylinder fuel-injected motor which generates 10.8PS at 7500rpm, 0.57PS more than the BS4 Shine SP. The engine features ACG starter which makes sure the engine is cranked silently. It’s refined and frugal, packs a punch, and offers a good list of features, making it a well-rounded product. So, if you’re planning to buy a premium 125cc commuter, you definitely can't give the SP 125 a miss on the other hand, Unicorn BS6 would be better option for good power and comfort. Do take a test ride in order to clear your all doubts. Check out authorised dealership details.
  • Of course Sp 125. In mileage and features.
  • Honda SP 125
Q. Which is best among Unicorn 160 and 150?
  • The Honda Unicorn 160 is for someone looking for a powerful and easy to ride commuter motorcycle with good mileage for company. On the other hand, Honda's blue-eyed boy, the Unicorn is still a hot selling product thanks to its lovely handling, grunty 150cc motor and superior comfort on Indian roads. If you require a better power, you can go for Honda CB Unicorn 160 and if you require a better fuel efficiency, you can go for CB Unicorn 150. We would suggest you to take a test ride in order to clear your all doubts. Click on the given link to get your nearest dealership details: https://www.zigwheels.com/bikes/dealers

    I have old unicorn dazzler 150 cc bike for 4 years almost driven about a lakh KM then am looking to buy new vehicle in Honda is my only choice because of it's quite engine performance but Honda give this unicorn 160 cc as a faulty Engine or else very noisy engine on my view . even they have service the engine but the is not satisfied for me .if I go about 80kmpl it's ok if I cross above 80 km speed the engine get noisy . even my old Dazzler still remain soft while I go above 80. so I don't trust the 160 cc bike in Honda .now I buy again 150 cc unicorn after 2 years .

    If you talk about refinement then Honda offers the best in class as per my opinion. Looks aren"t that catchy. 200-250 km ride won"t hurt you unless the roads are extremely bad. Highway cruising will be effortless for the bike where as you might like to take a break for 100 kms or so due to slight back pain. Decent fuel economy. I have been driving it for the last 4 years. It"s always around 45-50 kmpl highway and 40-45 kmpl city. So I go get an approximate 42-43 kmpl in everyday commute.

    It's a family bike and some stylish in honda especially seat some what big compared to other bikes .i didn't think of buying CB UNICORN 160 on that time no bike was latest. i was purchased my bike in August 2015 on that time it was latest so i purchase

    Very Smooth ride. Handling is much easier HET Engine, delivers good pickupBut Mileage 40 kmpl in City and 45 - 50 on Highway.Because of CBS Braking system its Safer Bike.But ABS Braking system is imperative need for 150 CC Bikes.

  • 3.4

    It packs a punch when accelerating at 3rd and 4th gear but lots of vibes, the seat is stiff and suspension is also on the stiffer side. But for city commute it's good and for touring too.
