Article by Drivio | 26th Jun 23
The biggest change for the sporty commuter is in its engine.
- Apart from the mechanical changes, there’s nothing new to be seen.
- The Honda Unicorn has been priced at Rs 1,09,800.
- Rivals to the bike include the Apache RTR 160 2V and the Bajaj Pulsar N150.
The Honda Unicorn has received an upgrade to become OBD 2-compliant, resulting in a price hike of Rs 4,082. The new ex-showroom price in Delhi is now Rs 1,09,800. However, this price increase does not bring many new features to the bike.
The engine of the Unicorn remains unchanged, with a 162.7cc mill delivering 12.9PS of power and 14Nm of torque, which are the same as the previous model. The bike is offered in three colour options: Imperial Red Metallic, Mat Axis Grey Metallic, and Pearl Igneous Black. The Red variant is designed for those who prefer a bold and sporty appearance, while the Black variant caters to those who prefer a more understated look.
In terms of design, the motorcycle retains its original look, featuring a diamond-type frame and equipped with a telescopic fork and monoshock suspension. It rides on 18-inch alloy wheels that come with tubeless tires. In terms of safety, the Unicorn is equipped with a 240mm front disc brake and a 130mm rear drum brake, supported by a single-channel ABS system.
The 2023 Honda Unicorn offers a basic set of features, including a halogen headlight, a fully analogue instrument cluster, single-channel ABS, and a side-stand engine cut-off function.
Despite not undergoing significant changes over the years, the Honda Unicorn continues to be popular among Indian consumers. The bike has consistently maintained steady sales figures month after month, indicating its enduring appeal.
