The prices for the ABS variant of the popular Unicorn 150 has been increased by Rs 6,500, compared to the non-ABS model. The Honda Unicorn 150 receives a single-channel ABS unit.
The Honda CB Unicorn 150 is a popular commuter motorcycle in the 150cc segment. It offers a simple, clean and no-nonsense design. The Unicorn 150 was discontinued in the market and replaced with the Unicorn 160. However, due to its high demand and popularity, was re-launched in the market.
In terms of visuals, apart from the small ABS sticker on the front mudguard, there have been no changes made. The Honda Unicorn has managed to record consistent sales figures for the brand in the Indian market, despite there being no significant updates for quite a while now. The new ABS-equipped motorcycle will also continue to be available in three colour — Silver, Red and Black.
The Honda CB Unicorn ABS continues to be powered by the same 150cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine. It produces 12.73bhp and 12.8Nm of torque and is mated to a five-speed gearbox.
The CB Unicorn 150 ABS also continues to receive conventional telescopic front forks and a monoshock rear suspension set up. Braking is handled by a 260mm disc up front and 130mm drum brakes at the rear. The commuter motorcycle rides on 18-inch alloy wheels with 80/100-R18 and 100/90-R18 tyre profiles at the front and rear, respectively.
Due to its popularity, the non-ABS model will be sold alongside the new ABS version, until 1st April 2019. This is when the upcoming Safety norms will be implemented. According to the safety norms, all 125cc and above two-wheelers must mandatorily feature ABS while those below 125cc should come equipped with CBS (Combi-Braking System).
