    Style it is not sportish. Targeted at the general buyer.

    Engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox if you drive single, you do not find issue in performance. If you travel in doubles, then you need to lower the gear for the vehicle to pull. My earlier bajaj xcd 125 cc used to pull without crying. Fuel economy is bad at around 34 kms to a litre in chennai city traffic.

    Ride quality & handling suspensions are bad. Severe jolting and you can feel the jolt going through your spine. Got back and neck pains. Braking is good.

    Final words sold off the vehicle after riding for 1800 kms.

    Areas of improvement mileage, suspension.

    Pros

    looks decent

    cons

    mileage, suspension

    Literally the best choice i ever made was to buy unicorn 160 ,the riding experience is just "amazing " it has power with smoothness which is delivered by honda as expected.

    Excellent performance even at high speed . I bought the grey colour bike and the glossy finish and muscular looks are just exotic. The only disadvantage of buying this bike is it's cost but it's totally worth the quality and riding experience.

    Style good.

    Engine performance, fuel economy and gearbox pickup is good, 🙂 top speed is 106 ( in speedo meter)☹ not start with kick in gear(like splandor) 😷 front indicators are create problem sometimes while u are in rush☹ choke location is near engine😷 cold start problem😷 milage is good about 50 kmpl in city, 😎 gear shift sound in 1,2,3 gears☹

    ride quality & handling good.

    Final words overall bike is not so good as expectation with honda. I have an old unicorn 2005 model which is much better than this in performance.

    Self of this 160 is gone within 3 months while i assume a long life of this bike, its handel i was go to showroom for 3 times because it get hard with in some days.

    Areas of improvement i think ( may be possible) honda never listen about his customers as experienced me.

    Pros

    milage, power, pickup

    cons

    top speed, electric switch

    Honda unicorn 160 CBS is not a complete bike in this price range. It gives me only less than 40 kmpl mileage even after riding in 40-50km/hr in good road. I used it for 15 months. Gear shifting issue is also a big problem.After achieving the speed greater than 90 km/hr,...
    Honda unicorn 160 CBS is not a complete bike in this price range. It gives me only less than 40 kmpl mileage even after riding in 40-50km/hr in good road. I used it for 15 months. Gear shifting issue is also a big problem.After achieving the speed greater than 90 km/hr, byke started to vibrated and the engine sounds very badly. Over all, I am not recommending this bike to a new buyer.

    I'am almost riding two wheelers for the past 17 years. Bought this cb unicorn 160 jan 2016, during first ride itself found the mono shock was not good, got back pain after short distance ride, gear shifting not smooth, seat is hard for both rider and pillion, poor mileage only 40kmpl even after 2nd service. Got mislead with honda and unicorn brand name. Even 100cc bikes of other indian brands work better..

    Planning to sell this bike to prevent further damage to my spine.

    I bought unicorn 160 in oct2015 the bike is so smooth and give good mileage and handling but the monoshock is worst. I have not seen a bike with a hard shock which gives the rider backache and disk problems please press the shock( the rear seat ) of all the bikes u people have shortlisted and go for it, the shock of unicorn is so hard that it dosent move. The older unicorn ie 150 cc is good.
