Honda CB Unicorn 160 Sports Commuter Discontinued in India

Honda’s CB Unicorn 160 failed to mark its presence in the Indian market. Now, because of the poor sales figures in recent times, the company has decided to discontinue the CB Unicorn 160 in India. Few dealers in Mumbai have confirmed the unavailability of the sports commuter and they have no information regarding the restocking of the bike. After the CBR150R, CB Trigger, CB Dazzler, CB Twister, Eterno scooter, the CB Unicorn 160 is the next addition to the Honda’s discontinued vehicles. The CB Unicorn 160 was introduced as a successor to the CB Unicorn 150 but the customers still preferred buying the Unicorn 150. With an ex-showroom price of INR 76,000, the CB Unicorn 160 was one of the most affordable bikes as compared to its rivals, the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Suzuki Gixxer 155  and the Bajaj Pulsar NS160. Despite attractive pricing, the company was only able to sell an approximate 13,200 units last fiscal whereas the X-Blade sold close to 4,000 bikes in just May 2019. By introducing the Unicorn 160, the company stopped manufacturing the 150 but after some time they relaunched the Unicorn 150. Honda Unicorn 160 was powered by a 162.71cc single-cylinder engine that was first shared by the Hornet in a different state of tune. Unicorn 160 was good for 13.82 BHP of maximum power at 8000 rpm and 13.92 Nm of maximum torque at 6000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The refined motor claims around 45-50 kmpl of mileage on the Unicorn 160. The top speed is limited to 106 kmph due to more emphasis on mileage. The commuter-spec motorcycle was available with 80/100 front and 110/80 rear tyres. The motorcycle is still listed on the official website of Honda, though it is expected that the brand will remove it in the coming days.
