Honda Unicorn Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

    • 150cc engine offers excellent refinement
    • Has good low and mid-range torque
    • Good fuel efficiency
  • Could be Better

    • Design is too old
    • Not a feature rich motorcycle
    • Quite pricey for its segment

BikeWale's Take

The Honda Unicorn is possibly one of the best bikes in the segment. This motorcycle which was discontinued a few years ago, was brought back to life due to public demand. Majority of Indians love the Unicorn for its super refined engine, great comfort and good fuel efficiency. Plus, this motorcycle is quite cheap to maintain as well. But the overall design is dated, and the bike also doesn’t get a lot of new features.
