Year of Manufacture: 2015 | Driven no. of Kms. : 800
  • Pros: I would say the design is very attractive and muscular.Honda was my ever favorite brand when compared to other bikes. the power and the mileage had attracted me. though I bought a standard version the braking is awesome. mileage is again a good thing I got 51 km/ltr its far better when compared to Unicorn 150 I had previously.
  • Cons: Pricing is a bit heavy I feel. gear pedal position is not apt 'caz I had to literally lift my whole foot to check down the gear. chain life is poor, after 400 kms the chain was so loos that it was swinging very bad. some times I feel that whole weigh is rested upon our hands. gear is tight and rough that we have to release clutch and hold again to get it shifted especially when ride slowly.

Full Review:

after riding a distance of 800 kms I am happy about the power and Mileage. of course look is really muscular,and as the vehicle is heavy, riding also is very well controlled. but the gear position is not apt trying bit difficulty to shift. initial pick up for the second gear is not up to the mark compared to first gear. City ride is often becomes difficult if it is in second gear. as the gear is very rough and tough its difficult to shift the gear when slowing down. switch positions are also not good finding it difficult to access them. chain gets loose even before 500 kms ride. mileage is awesome for this bike, I got 51 kms/ltr which is far better than Unicorn 150 I had previously. lack an engine kill switch.
