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.

    The bike is comfortable enough for City rides & Daily Commutes. I have also gone to the long rides up to 450 KM in a day. But still, this is one of the most pathetic bikes that I have ever driven. I am not really satisfied with this model of Honda Unicorn, cause other than the seating comfort this bike has no other positive attributes. It only has a bunch of drawbacks. If I make a list of drawbacks that I have experienced, it will literally never end. Just trying to shortlist a few of them which will give you a clear idea about the negative points of this bike.1. The headlamp of the vehicle is not powerful enough for night driving on highways.2. The default battery is not capable to handle the additional lights.3. The bike is not sturdy and it has a body vibration when you ride it above 70-80 KMPH speed on highways.4. Disc brake's life is as short as just 12-13 K Kilometers. Had to change it at 12,500 KMs and again at 25,000 KMs.5. Spare parts are very costly.6. In less than 2 years (19,000 Kilometers) the engine has started making horrible Tappet Noice which is not being resolved.7. In recent days I have taken the mileage worth 45 but soon after 20,000 Kilometers the bike's average has fallen below 35 and it's not even generating enough power in stiff roads like ghat sections.Note:I have always made the bike service at the Authorised Dealers.I don't recommend this bike if you love to go on long rides.

    Pros: the bike is good for long rides.You wont get any lower back pain.Engine can withstand long rides comfortably.I am owning unicorn 160 cbs for 4 years.The braking is excellent as it is combi brake.We can easily filter in traffic.Engine is amazing, It is eager to rev.Honda 's reliability is great.In highway i get 46kmpl and in city i get 44kmpl.My average riding speed is 80kmph - 100kmph in highways cons: headlight and horn are pathetic.Definitely need an after market modification.Engine k**l switch not present is a big con.One major disadvantage of this bike is the stability is zero if the road is windy.Even if a truck cross over you the bike will wobble.Sometimes while moving in 70 - 90 kmph in highways due to wind my bike moves from first lane to third lane.

    या गाडी मघ्ये मायलेज खुप छान आहे. सिटिंग कंर्फट छान आहे. इंजिन मघ्ये थोडा प्राॅबलेम आहे अधून मधून इंजिनमध्ये काही तरी आवाज येतो..गाडीचे ब्रेकिंग सुद्धा ठिक आहे. जेवढ्या लवकरात लवकर ब्रेकिंग व्हायला हवं तेवढं लवकर ब्रेक लागत नाही.
