Honda CB Unicorn 150 relaunched in India
One of the most admirable commuter bike- CB Unicorn 150 bid adieu shortly after Honda’s iteration CB Unicorn 160 cc was introduced. The successful bike left behind a vacuum as its demand never really went down. The bike maker thus decided to bring back the legend just like it always was at a price tag of Rs 69,305 (ex-showroom, New Delhi). Honda CB Unicorn 150’s comeback created quite a ripple during the 2016 Auto Expo despite all the buzz created by swanky new launches and amazing concepts. The 150 cc bike will co-exist along with the 160 cc CB Hornet and CB Unicorn.
The Honda CB Unicorn 150 requires no special introduction but for those unaware, the bike measures 2095 mm in length, 1100 mm in height and 756 mm in width. The wheelbase offered by the bike is 1340 mm while the ground clearance figure stands at 179 mm. The motorcycle has a kerb weight of 146 kg. The CB Unicorn 150 continues to adorn the 3D Honda logo, analogue instrument cluster and black-coloured 5-spoke alloy wheels. Just like its cosmetic features, the engine, transmission and other technical aspects remains untouched. The Unicorn 150 continues to derive power from the single-cylinder, air-cooled, 149 cc engine that kicks outs power output of 13.14 bhp at 8500 rpm and maximum torque of 12.84 Nm at 5500 rpm. The engine is coupled with a 5-speed transmission.
The motorcycle is available in BS-4 state and complies with the emissions norms as well. HMSI is earning handsomely from its motorcycle sales as compared to its scooter retailing. On comparing the sales figure by year on year basis, the motorcycle segment received 27 % growth while the scooter segment received 21 % growth. Now that Honda has bowed down in front of its customer’s choice, do you think the 2016 Honda CB Unicorn 150 will live up to the company’s expectations?
