Honda CB Unicorn 150 Surpasses 20 Lakhs Unit Sales Milestone

The Honda CB Unicorn 150, which hit the Indian market back in 2004, has crossed the milestone of selling 20 lakh units across the country. To attain this target, the 150cc executive commuter bike took 12 years since it hit the production line. At that time, the motorcycle was introduced with the brand name of the Unicorn, which was later rebranded with the CB Unicorn 160 in 2014, post 10 years of its launch in the Indian biking industry.

Enjoyed success in the 150cc premium commuter segment, the Unicorn was in competition with the likes of the Hero CBZ and the Bajaj Pulsar 150. The monoshock was the major highlight of the motorcycle as it was the first locally manufactured bike with that fitment. Furthermore, the Unicorn has also undergone a number of updations to go with trends.

In 2014, the bike maker discontinued the motorcycle from its Indian lineup due to some reasons. But back in 2016, the bike maker re-launched the motorcycle at the Auto Expo that year. The decision of re-launching motorcycle was taken by considering customer’s feedback and its successor’s mediocre sales figures. The taken step worked into brand’s favour and the motorcycle observed a surge in demand. As of now, the motorcycle gets the top place in the brand’s most selling models in this segment. The company rolled out the 20th lakh unit of CB Unicorn 150 last month.

In brand’s Indian lineup, the CB Unicorn 150 gets placed in between the CB Shine and the CB Unicorn 160 at the asking price of INR 71,368 (ex-showroom). Compete with the models like the Bajaj Pulsar 150 and the TVS Apache RTR 160, the motorcycle is available to select from two colour schemes of red and black.
