New 2017 Honda Unicorn 150 Facelift in the Works!

5

Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India (HMSI) seems to have filed patents for the new 2017 Honda Unicorn 150. Honda could be busy readying a comprehensively updated Unicorn 150 to cash in on the huge fan following that this bike enjoys. The 150cc Unicorn, which was withdrawn from the market after the advent of the 160cc model, was re-launched owing to the huge demand and the rather lukewarm response the 160cc model got from the market. The upcoming facelift, thanks to its new-age styling and additional features, should further enhance the appeal of Honda’s most successful 150cc offering. Read on for all the details on the new 2017 Honda Unicorn 150 facelift.

The 2017 Unicorn facelift should look a lot more modern and stylish whilst retaining its ultra-refined and sufficiently potent 150cc single-cylinder engine. While the Unicorn was the first Indian motorcycle to boast a mono-shock rear suspension, the upcoming Honda motorcycle in India will have a conventional twin shock absorber setup. Also, while the original Uni came with 18-inch wire spoke wheels, the upcoming model will have 17-inch alloys.

The bikini faired motorcycle is powered by 149.1 cc air-cooled engine which is tuned to deliver 13.3 PS at 8,500 rpm and 12.84 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. These figures are likely to go up for the new 2017 model Unicorn 150. Transmission is a 5-speed unit. Same specs are expected to continue with the updated Unicorn 150 as well.

New 2017 Honda Unicorn 150 Launch Date

Launch Date (expected) October 2017

While HMSI is yet to make a public announcement regarding the new 2017 Honda Unicorn 150 launch date, we’re pretty sure the new bike will have its market launch around this year’s festive season. A mid-October date could possibly work wonders for the manufacturer as demand for new two-wheelers is really high in that period.

  1. I don’t know why are they messing up with the 150 model which is being loved so much by Indian customers.

    They did so earlier by discontinuing the same and ended up launching the same again.

    It seems that Honda want to sell what they like and not what a consumer likes.

  2. Why honda is experimenting on old model of cb unicorn 150cc while the same is liked and appreciated by customer.

    Old model is good in look, build quality, mealage, torque , ground clearance, driving seating position, fuel tank capacity.

    I love old model very much because of its best pillion seat in 150cc bike.,

  3. Unicorn is really antic bike from the beginning . I love the changes made by Honda in new Unicorn 150 .I am really eager to ride the new one in October 2017 .
    I am waiting for u .
