Hunk or Unicorn for the bike riding hunks

Comparison of Hero Honda Hunk and Honda Unicorn

Are you confused whether to zero in on a Hero Honda Hunk 150cc or Honda Unicorn 150cc?

Before jumping to one conclusion, to own any bike one needs to be thoroughly informed or aware of its pros and cons, this way it becomes easier to take a decision.

Hero Honda rolled out these two bikes in the league of 150cc bikes available in the market. The Hunk 150 and the Honda 150 have many pros and cons in their own ranks that need to be analyzed to come to one conclusion; let us see what...

Honda Unicorn

Design and Styling
According to Hero Honda, the Hunk 150cc is a tribute to the present youth of India. The 150cc bike has huge tank shrouds that enable a comfortable knee recess, definitely. The headlamps look pretty similar to those of TVS Flame but they are successful in keeping it free from the conventional chrome stripped front fairing. Actually the bikini faring is styled aggressively in the Hunk.

Honda Hunk 150 also features GRS or what is called as the Gas Reservoir Suspension. Hunk bike has followed the black theme which appeals to one and all; the silencer guard, handle bar, grab rail and the alloy wheels are all coloured black. It also follows the same line as some of the International bikes with golden coloured (the magnesium alloyed) telescopic fork; surely an aesthetic add on and will draw second glance. The graphics and the decals of the Hunk 150 are sober and the indicators at the front and the rear ends are not integrated. But the design and styling emanates some hunk or toughness, and if it's not sounding rude an element of rowdiness in it.

Hero Honda Hunk

While the Honda Unicorn 150cc sports an aerodynamic body, which gives it a sleeker look. The macho design doesn't look separate but is indeed blended with the style giving it a bold statement of style.

The Honda logo, tail lamp (improvised version of what we have seen in Honda scooter Dio) and the interesting body graphics of the bike make it look very attractive. The alloy wheels and silencer are black colored and silencer guard scores better with steel piece.

Both Unicorn and Hunk have tuff-up tubes for the rear tyre. The uniquely designed gearshift in the Unicorn 150cc offers good control to the toes.

In terms of design and styling Unicorn 150cc scores better than Hunk 150cc.

Engine and Transmission
Both Honda Unicorn and Hunk are powered by 4-stroke 150cc engine. Hunk 150cc generates a 14.4 Ps at 8500rpm and 12.8Nm of torque at 6500rpm. While Unicorn 150cc generates 13.3bhp at 8000rpm and torque of 12.8Nm at 5500rpm. The Honda Unicorn 150 also features pulse exhaust system and a two-way air jacket. The five-speed gear and constant mesh contributes to the transmission factors of Unicorn 150 and Hunk 150.

Fuel efficiency/Mileage
As regards the mileage while the Hero Honda Hunk 150cc bike runs for about 55-60 km per liter of petrol, Unicorn would ask for a refill after riding 53-55 km and would go until 58 km on a long drive. Hunk covers up to 65 km a liter on long drives. You could give thumbs down for the fuel efficiency to Unicorn 150.

Riding and Handling
The Honda Unicorn 150cc does not have an advantage of good pickup, the brakes are not anything extra ordinary; and you need to exert pressure. However, the mono-suspension helps you have a comfortable ride on any kind of roads.

Honda Hunk 150cc offers great stability no matter what speed you are riding and it is suitable to ride under any road conditions. The raised handlebar, comfortable foot pegs and the cushioned seats are ideal even for the long distance rides. Still the gearbox in the Hunk is a little harder than what you see in a Unicorn.

Technology and add-on goodies in Hunk and Unicorn
Both Hunk 150cc and the Unicorn use the ATFi or advance tumbled flow induction technology that is unique and generates better power. Hunk does not feature the LED tail lamps & digital meter while Hunk does. In terms of styling, graphics and design Unicorn outscores Hunk.

Last word and verdict
The Hunk 150 is available at a price range of Rs. 55,000-57,000 and Unicorn 150 is priced at Rs. 55,000-65,000. It is widely accepted that Unicorn has an edge over Hunk, but based on the comparisons as to different segments in a bike review, it is up to the individuals' choice and there are bikes from different brands in the same 150cc segment that can be looked at, if you feel you aren't adding to the dilemma.

I think Honda Unicorn is a '"ROUGH AND TOUGH" kind of bike

Just ask any Unicorn Owner if I am wrong??

I own UNICORN and my brother own HUNK..,
be honest, HUNK is far better among the two in case of,: looks, performance, pickup, topspeed, comfort, sittingposture, breaking, and mileage in average speeds.
Unicorn scores only in mileage in higher speeds.
NOW, am using my brothers HUNK,.
By on 13-05-2012
Just checkout the official website of both the bikes,.
HUNK delivers 14.4 ps and unicorn 13 ps.
compare the two numbers if you have pre-primary-education at least.
Go to an used bike showroom and check, then you will know, who has more resale value,.
Speak with some practical knowledge,.....
