Honda Unicorn 160 Review

02 Nov, 2022 10:50 AM

Detailed Review by Maxabout Team

Overview

The Honda CB Unicorn 160 is a luxury 160cc motorbike geared at a young demographic looking for a fashionable commuter motorcycle for daily usage. The CB Unicorn 160 fills the vacuum left in Honda's lineup when the CB Dazzler was withdrawn a few years ago.

The luxury 150cc sector is dominated by muscular motorcycles, and the CB Unicorn is no exception. The CB Unicorn 160 is inspired by the Honda CX-01 concept, which debuted at the 2014 Auto Expo, as well as the CB Trigger. The fuel tank is given a muscular appearance, while the headlamp is given a bikini fairing. The majority of the electrical components have been shared with the CB Unicorn and CB Trigger, which should help to reduce development and manufacturing costs.

Honda Unicorn 160 Design and Style

2023 Honda Unicorn 160 is a premium commuter bike, and it certainly looks the part, due to new chrome accents on the bodywork. The Unicorn 160 features an angular headlight with broad chrome highlights at the front. However, the motorcycle retains a halogen headlamp, and it would have been preferable if Honda had offered an LED unit. A blacked-out visor incorporated with the body panels is also included, as are blacked-out rear-view mirrors. Moving to the side view, it is clear that the Unicorn has a butch stance.

The new Honda Unicorn 160 features a muscular fuel tank with Honda's 3D symbol, as well as a long flat single-piece seat that provides excellent comfort. The lower half of the motorcycle is totally blacked out, giving it a more refined appearance, and there are also subtle chrome highlights. It gets a huge tail lamp at the back, but it is also a halogen unit. The motorcycle has no LEDs, and the turn indicators are likewise halogen.

Honda Unicorn 160 Engine and Gearbox

The latest model of Honda Unicorn 160 is powered by a brand-new 162.7cc single-cylinder, air-cooled, fuel-injected BS6 engine. The Unicorn 150 was the name given to the BS4 version of this commuter motorbike, which had a 149.2cc engine. The upgraded BS6 motor produces 12.7 HP at 7500 RPM and 14 Nm of peak torque at 5500 RPM. The engine is connected to a 5-speed manual transmission and has Honda's Eco Technology (HET) for improved performance and fuel efficiency. A new engine start/stop switch has also been added to the bike.

2023 Honda Unicorn 160 is a fantastic motorcycle in terms of performance. Because it is a 160cc luxury commuter, the bike performs far better than the standard 125cc bikes on the market. The motorcycle has a nice initial pickup and subsequently, the power delivery is quite linear, resulting in a more relaxed riding experience. The new Honda Unicorn 160 also has excellent fuel economy.

Honda Unicorn 160 Suspension, Brakes and Tyres

The better diamond frame underpins the new Honda Unicorn 160. The motorcycle's suspension is handled by telescopic forks in the front and a hydraulic mono-shock absorber in the rear. The Honda Unicorn 160 provides a smooth and comfortable ride. It effortlessly absorbs road imperfections and rough areas. Disc brakes at either end of the new Honda Unicorn 160 handle braking responsibilities. The motorcycle has a 240mm disc brake in the front and a 130mm drum brake in the rear.

As an added safety feature, the new model of Honda Unicorn 160 comes standard with a single-channel ABS or anti-lock braking system. It is one of the very few ABS-equipped commuter bikes in India. The tubeless tyres of the motorcycle are 18 inches in diameter. The motorcycle's front tyre is 80/100-18, while the rear is a 100/90 section 18-inch unit. The motorcycle is outfitted with HET tyres, which have low rolling resistance and are specially engineered to improve fuel efficiency.

Instrument Console of Honda Unicorn 160

This commuter bike is fully equipped with an Analogue instrument console with Distance to Empty Indicator, Engine Kill Switch, Analogue Fuel level gauge, Analogue Odometer, Long Seat Seat Style, Analogue Speedometer, Kick & Self Start Start Type, Tachometer etc.

Key Features of Honda Unicorn 160

A Single-Channel ABS (Anti-Lock Braking System), Retro All-Analogue Instrument Console, 3D Honda Logo, Engine Kill Switch, Long Seat, Programmed Fuel Injection. Comfort features like Electric Start, Pillion Footrest, Engine Kill Switch and Pillion Grabrail are also offered with new Honda Unicorn 160.

Top Speed and Mileage of Honda Unicorn 160

2023 Honda Unicorn 160’s mileage is 55 km/l (approximate) and in terms of performance, the naked commuter bike can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in around 16 seconds at the top speed of 106 km/h (real top speed figure).

Honda Unicorn 160 Colour Options

Honda offers the new Unicorn 160 in three colour options, namely Imperial Red Metallic, Pearl Igneous Black and Matte Axis Grey Metallic.

Honda Unicorn 160 Competitors

Bajaj Pulsar 150, TVS Apache RTR 160, Suzuki Gixxer 150, Hero Xtreme 160R, and Yamaha FZS V3 are some of the similar bikes that can rival the new Honda Unicorn 160.

Conclusion

Unicorn has been a key motorcycle for Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India, ranking in solid sales numbers in the all-important 150cc sector and holding Honda's flag high in the premium commuter segment. However, after so many years, this venerable motorcycle is starting to feel a little old in terms of styling, as well as several other key factors when compared to newer, superior rivals, given that such capable rivals sell in the same space, such as the Bajaj Pulsar 150 DTS-i, Yamaha FZ-S, and recently introduced segment leader, the Suzuki Gixxer, to name a few. The new CB Unicorn 160 is not a completely updated motorcycle, Honda has definitely adhered to the 'if it ain't broke, don't repair its approach. The old Unicorn wasn't a horrible-looking bike either but a little boring. However, new components combine to make the 160 a more appealing product.

I bought this bike just spending 3000rs more than unicorn 150 and guess what it is better than 150cc version. In every aspect like giving same mileage even after having bump in performance. New design low weight and maintenance free stance. CONS:- Poor ground clearance, top speed could hav been improved. But overall it is best when compared to other bikes like doing 0-100 in 15-16.89 secs.

Best Features: Torquier engine, digital instrument cluster, tubeless tyres, looks,design.

Pros: Performance, mileage, features,service, parts availability, comfort.

Cons: Low ground clearance, top speed could have been improved.

Features Compromised

Can someone from the company please answer why did you choose to have the switch console on Unicorn and CBR 150 the same as in Shine or the economy vehicles? For a vehicle such as Unicorn that is priced at 85K and CBR 150 that is more than a lakh, shouldn't the consoles at least be as good as CBR 250? When the engine capacity is already compromised in comparison to CBR 250, as consumers, should we compromise on such trivial features that are basics of any bike? Please let me know if this is any wrong expectation.

Best Features: Speedometer, Seat, Design

Pros: Design, Engine Capacity, Comfort

Cons: Switch Console (Highly Compromised)

Honda CB Unicorn 160 is just AWESOME

Yogesh Mahadik | 4 years ago

After CB UNICORN 150CC Honda gives us another Gem in the form of CB UNICORN 160cc. Obviously Honda is always known for its less maintenance and good mileage and CB UNICORN 160 CC got this also. With its new HET engine it's obvious it will give you a minimum 60 kmpl mileage. It also got its mono suspension and tubeless tire on which you can rely for a long comfortable ride. Coming to the disadvantage part I got a single flaw to be pointed out from my side which is its visor on the tank which looks a bit awkward to me. Only for the reason CB UNICORN is not at all a sport bike so keeping it simple is the best. Apart from this Thumbs Up really. Nothing Better Than Honda!

Best Features: Stability and grip on the road.

Pros: I like everything about this bike :D

Cons: No kill switch and engine gets hot too fast :'(

I'm waiting for this bike from last year but disappointed now. I expected the design looks like Honda CX01 but they just copied from Pulsar and Discover. The specifications are just OK. If the real mileage is more than 50kmpl this bike is worth.
The only difference from Unicorn-150 is digital console, tank cover, Bike weight and colors.

Suzuki Gixxer is one of the most awaited bike in Bangladesh. It was launched in
India in early September and since then it has been one of the best selling bike
(in the 150cc category) in India and since then bikers of Bangladesh is waiting
for it to come & touch the tarmac of our road. - See more at:

Seriously, Honda !?? Hero Xtreme, Bajaj Pulsar, Suzuki Gixxer & every other 150-160CC rides are rolling out with higher RPM & BHP and you are stuck with the same old crap !!?? Did expect a powerful engine, way better styling and accessories (4Ah battery !?) after you made a mockery of your reputation with Trigger, you had a chance to redeem it and if this is what you are coming up with, then God save you ! Been a Honda user since 1999, and guess it is time to switch to something else than waiting for a worthy model in the 200cc segment (naked bike).

Just check the below statistics. Somehow I'm starting to think that Honda rolled out better performing bikes when it teamed up with Hero. Right now they are just trying to dump unwanted stuff with odd configurations..

CB Unicorn 160 : 162.71 cc / 14.5 BHP @ 8000 rpm (Cubic capacity isn't everything !)

Hero Xtreme : 149.2 cc / 14.2 Bhp @ 8500 rpm (Better styling, higher RPM)
Hero Xtreme Sports : 149.2 cc / 15.2 BHP @ 8500 rpm (Higher BHP, Higher RPM)

Bajaj Discover 150 : 144.8 cc / 14.3 BHP @ 8500 rpm
Bajaj Pulsar 150 : 149 cc / 14.9 Bhp @ 9000 rpm

TVS Apache RTR 160 : 159.7 cc / 15.2 Bhp @ 8500 rpm

Suzuki Gixxer : 154.9 cc / 14.6 BHP @ 8000 rpm

Yamaha FZ Version 2.0 : 149 cc / 12.9 Bhp @ 8000 rpm (It wins in the style department)
