Should I buy the Honda CB Unicorn 150?
Honda CB Unicorn 150?
The Honda CB Unicorn 150 is a very popular conservative looking commuter motorcycle in India. It is powered by a 149cc single-cylinder engine, which produces 13 bhp and 13Nm torque.
Now whether you should buy this bike depends totally on your likes/dislikes, needs, requirements etc. But here are some tips which will help you make an informed choice.
1. Before settling for the Honda CB 150, please test drive other bikes in its segment such as the Bajaj Pulsar 150 DTS-i, Hero Hunk and the Yamaha SZ-RR (version 2.0).
2. Compare the power-plants, maintenance costs and mileage of the CB Unicorn with its rivals. Also look at the kind of service and the feedback the particular models are receiving and the waiting period for delivery. Although the differences are little, they could turn out to be a deal-breaker for you.
3. If you’re spending your hard-earned money, you’d definitely want a ride that looks good, but this is one criteria than can be quite subjective. Personally, I find the Yamaha SZ-RR (version 2.0) to be the best looking motorcycle in this segment.
In the end it’s the comfort and the ride quality that actually matters, so please test drive the bikes and make sure everything is to your liking. DON’T COMPROMISE HERE.
