First Impression Review

There was a time in India when all men were after a single motorcycle. It was none another that the Honda Unicorn. Launched in 2004, this 150cc commuter attracted millions of heart with its unique styling and features. CB 160 is the eldest member of the Unicorn family launched in 2014, following the footsteps of one of the best selling motorcycle of the country.

Design and Features
The Honda Unicorn was designed in such a way that, it perfectly blends into the day to day usage of adult as well as youngsters. It had more mature fuel tank shape and head lamp cluster. But the CB Unicorn 160 is rather a different motorcycle with its mechanical and cosmetic changes. Honda has incorporated premium and sporty elements to this bike. Upfront the bike features a new smart headlamp with AHO which have an aerodynamic front visor on the top. Honda has restrained the fuel tank shrouds on which the iconic 3D Honda emblem is affixed. At the tail portion newly designed ‘H’-shaped LED tail lamp is an attention seeking component. A well designed exhaust kit is the other additional feature to this 160 variant.

The CB Unicorn 160 gets a full digital instrument console, displaying all relevant information. the advanced Combi Brake System with Equalizer helps in smooth and effortless braking, even at higher speeds. Seats are longer and looks more presentable than the Unicorn 150. Built quality of Honda motorcycles are renowned, but somehow they had used many cheap, flexible plastic panels under the fuel tank section as a part of cost effective management. And the engineers of Honda has managed to reduce the weight of this motorcycle from the previous Unicorn.

Suspension, Chassis and Braking
Honda has imposed a new diamond type frame for this motorcycle. Therefore, riding position is bit more sportier in the CB 160. It uses the same suspension system from its younger sibling. At the front it features telescopic fork and at the rear spring loaded hydraulic type monoshock suspension system is used. Braking power of this bike is controlled by 240mm disc brake at the front and 130mm drum brake at the rear. Honda’s CBS Braking Technology has made the braking even more efficient.

Verdict
CB Unicorn 160 was a disappointing model in its first run. It couldn’t achieve what standard Unicorn gained in its early stage. The massive pricetag and mixed reviews regarding the styling were the major issues. After some hardships in the early years, it started to show some vibes in the two-wheeler market.
