The slow selling Honda CB Trigger is about to be replaced by a new motorcycle that will be called the Honda CB Unicorn 160. The 160cc Honda is about to be launched here and just some days before being officially launched, has been spotted by people at Powerdrift. This sighting has brought us some Honda CB Unicorn 160 images and these pics give us a good idea of what to expect from the upcoming Honda 160cc motorcycle. The upcoming model will be a complete replacement for the Trigger and would be a worthy successor to the very lovable Unicorn 150cc motorbike.
The Honda CB Unicorn 1600 motorcycle gets a stylish but understated look that are in complete contrast to the looks of the Yamaha FZ V2.0 FI and the Suzuki Gixxer 155. The bike has a slim looking bikini fairing that gives it a very commuter-class appeal. The bike also has a long seat, ergonomic looking grab handle and a stylish saree guard that has upmarket plastic inserts. While the upcoming model has got clean looks, it misses the sporty appeal that is found in bikes like the Gixxer and the TVS Apache RTR160. The bike gets digital instrument console.
The CB Unicorn 160 will be powered by a 160cc engine that won’t get a fuel injection system. However, it will be still high on refinement and fuel economy, both of which are trademark of Honda commuter bikes in India. The bike will get conventional telescopic shock absorbers at front and a mono suspension at the rear. You might remember that the Unicorn was the first bike in this segment to come with a rear mono suspension and the legacy shall continue with the CB Unicorn 160. The bike gets a covered-chain, conventional handlebars and an optional rear disc brake.
The 160cc Unicorn could be priced at INR 75000 ex showroom and expect the model go on sale in early 2015.
