Honda has just launched the CB Unicorn 160. The motorcycle doesn't replace the Trigger or the nearly 10 year old Unicorn. Instead it sits between the two. The motorcycle is being billed as a premium commuter and will be up against the Suzuki Gixxer, Yamaha FZ Fi version 2.0 and the TVS Apache RTR 160.

Out of the motorcycles listed in this lot, only the Apache gets the option of a rear disc brake and makes the maximum power while the Unicorn has the highest capacity engine as well as torque output, in addition to the Combi-Braking. The Gixxer, meanwhile, has the best looking tail pipe as well as instrument cluster while the FZ is the least powerful and has the lowest kerb weight of the four. Sounds interesting, doesn't it? These motorcycles will not only vie for customers in the showroom but also in an upcoming OVERDRIVE road test, very soon. Until then, here is our spec comparison.
