HONDA is planning to showcase a 110 CC bike CB Twister for the lower segment. From the photos available the bike sure looks good and seems to be already a winner.

No negative points in Unicorn or Honda. These bikes are meant for commuting with hassel free long life engine. Most important please thing to really check is if you want all those additonal features that other bikes offer and how many times do you really use them for the additional 5 to 7 K that you spend on these cosmetics. When we buy a bike check its heart of luck

To me Unicorn is the best silent engine,good mileage and low maintenance. If you are giving more importance for style then you can choose Pulser.

Honda Shine is 125 CC bike and Unicorn 150 cc bike.The advantage of both are the proven peformance and decent nmileage.Draw back is that of the body style which is fast loosing appeal due to launch of new models like FZ seris etc.About the launch of newer Honda bike, we will provide the exact informtion soon.

unicorn is the best engine that i've seen in the marker as if now in th 150cc segment...responsive enough, smoothest of the lot..awesome handling..good enough mileage..a must buy n some minor modifications can give a great look too as compared to the stock..

Answer by Prabal Kahtri 12 December 2009

If you want to find negative point about bikes then please go for other brand.
Unicorn is the best bike in its segment very balance and silent bike with full of power.
If you plan for 150cc bike unicorn is the one and only option.

Only thing Negative about Honda Unicorn and Shine is the fact that the bikes are completely flawless and hence, there has never been a need to change the Engine or make any modifications to the frame. Bike has undergone a few consmetic changes in the past few years but is still the best in their categories. You wont believe me if i tell you, i have driven this bike for 600 kilometers at a stretch and did not feel tired at the end of it. Keep using Hindustan Petroleum Petrol (Normal and Power), they go excellently with the bike. My bike reads 28000 kms done and i get a mileage of 63 kms a liter.
