The Honda CB Unicorn had been quite a successful bike from the Japanese maker. What it did was establish Honda’s independent entity in the motorcycle market in India. After being discontinued, this has been re-introduced in the market. Interestingly, it has once again found customers who are very much interested in it. We have a look at the 2016 Honda CB Unicorn 150 and tell you whether this is still a good buy.

There are no updates in the design of the 2016 Honda CB Unicorn. It still is the same looking bike and has the same broad side panels. The trendy sculpted tank still looks good. It gets a 3D Honda wing logo on it. The instrument cluster is simplistic with three dials including a speedo, tacho and the fuel gauge, along with tell tale lamps. The biking fairing remain at the same and doesn’t look out of place as compared to newer bikes in the market. The rear portion of the 2016 Honda CB Unicorn is raked up and has a long seat. This seat is comfortable for the pillion too. The engine is blacked out to make it look a little sportier. It also gets a body colored rear grab rail. The Unicorn gets 6-spoke black alloy wheels too.
