HONDA UNICORN
Honda Unicorn is a sporty motorcycle with excellent driving stability due to its mono suspension. Honda Unicorn’s newly developed engine achieves top level fuel efficiency in the 150cc motorcycle class – 60km per liter*1. In addition, Unicorn has unique features to achieve excellent usability such as “tough up tube” that helps prevent flat tires. The Unicorn will go on sale in October 7, at a price of 52,950 Rupee (approximately US$ 1,140*2). HMSI plans to sell 110,000 units per year.


Saw a 2008 Unicorn on the road today. Alloys have refreshed the looks. It looks much better than the spoked version. A 100/80 size rear tyre (same as that of the Pulsar 150) enhanches the looks further.Available Sporty look at all show rooms.
Wish Honda had pushed the footrests a bit backward and gone for a sporty position. The new Unicorn still retains the Commuter”ish” riding position. A 17′th inch at the rear would instead of the current 18 inch would have done wonders to the looks of the Unicorn which already has a monoshock. The smaller 17 inch would have accentuated the gap between the rear wheel and the seat.
