Honda Discontinues CB Unicorn 160 From The Indian Market


Honda has most probably discontinued the CB Unicorn 160 although the motorcycle is still listed on their official website

Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India have already discontinued some of the 150cc offerings earlier from their lineup including the CB-Trigger, Dazzler and the CBR 150R. Recently Honda has also likely axed the CB Unicorn 160 from their product portfolio as well due to poor demand.

Honda decided not to update the CB Unicorn 160 with the safety net of ABS after April 2019 which was made mandatory for all the two-wheelers above 125cc. Honda dealers across the country have also confirmed the fact that they do not have stocks of the motorcycle with them while the demand for the motorcycle is also low at the same time.

Last year Honda managed to sell only 13,266 units of the Unicorn 160 in the country. However, do note that the CB Unicorn 160 is still listed on Honda’s official website and it already features a CBS system.
