Expert`s comment:

The mileage of 60KMPL from Unicorn is quite exagerated.The averge of 50KMPL should be good.As you are getting 40KMPL, with good driving habits like running in economy speed, constant speed, switch off the engine if idling is more than 30 sec etc mileage can be improved a lot.

sir , u purcase just ,so yet ur habit not set with this bike, pl ride 1000 km u will get near 50 km. next it may increase 55 pl. it defend on ur drive style. any how 50 confirm after 1st/2nd service .tell ur dealer also. dont drive over 60km speed till 5000 kms run

Answer by Gautam Chand Jain 05 May 2009

You;re run in should be hard. Don't keep the engine speed constant. Keep increasing it beyond 5000 rpm. This will help the piston rings to fit in properly in the cylinders. Later wear will be reduced. If you do a soft run in now, later performance will reduce and if you accelerate harshly, you will end up getting about 35 to 40 mileage. So do a hard run in for more performance and mileage.

Answer by Sid 05 May 2009

Rev the engine to allow proper piston bedding.As the engine wears the mileage will improve.Mileage also depends on driving habits and traffic conditions

Answer by Amol 05 May 2009

Mileage is initially low with any new vehicle. It starts improving with each of initial 2-3 services, as the vehicles gets proper settings / tuning after running few hundred kilometres. Tell your service station about mileage issue when you get the bike serviced.

Really a Bakwaas Bike. my unicorn done only 4900 kms and it has piston rings problem. black smoke comes from exhaust and my family members have to involve to start the bike in cold situation.

Answer by Shekhar 11 November 2013

To increase honda unicorn mileage do a mileage tuning from authorized honda service centre. From my experience, before tuning mileage was 45 and after tuning it increased to 53-55 KM/Ltr, But there was a slight degradation in power performance.

i have a Honda Unicorn 2007 model, more then 2,50,000 k.m. and i love it.
in the starting 2 years i got millage between 75 to 55, then i started racing on my bike and i was getting millage between 35 to 50, now after 267000 km it is giving me millage of 35, but i have never took my bike for clutch-plate replacement,timing chain or any other Engine Related problem, trust me guys,my engine is still as packed,as i bought it,
the chain set changed once only,and tires are changed twice, but no body touche the engine part,till now, is there anything left to say, my bike is zero maintenance bike, more then 2.5 LAKH kilometers, and no issues, it performs awesome today, and i am sure,it can take me more then 1 lakh without any issue,fore sure.
outstanding performance,
this bike is really a ROCK STAR
