    Hi,
    So my take on Honda Unicorn 160 after test riding few, is that the old majesticity is gone in this new bike. The bike weighs much lesser, which makes me feel like a 100cc or a 125 cc bike. The bike is not as smooth as the the old unicorn. It is ROUGH. I mean it, it is rough- the silent exhaust note, which you hear and enjoy in the old unicorn is gone. I think it is more suited for college goers and not for 30+ people. The success of gixxer has made Honda to make this bike I guess. Overall a big disappointment for me , as i planned to upgrade to this bike

    I absolutely agree that the engine sounds harsh but the engine is much more refined,smooth and responsive
    In my opinion the engine sound is smooth like the old Unicorn at less than 60-65kmph.. Above that yes gives you the harsh feeling.

    I am really not able to find a fuel efficiency difference between City ride and highway ride. City i get around 45-46kmpl and at highways 48kmpl..

    City Daily commute of around 50km , 60% on 1-3 gears(0-50kmph) and 40% on 4&5th gear(50-70kmph)

    During Highway ride 80-90kmph most of the time.

    Any suggestions why this is so ? Any thing wrong with the driving style. ?

    How is the bump absorption capability of this bike. I learnt that it has stiff rear suspension. How's its effect on one's back. Owner's kindly throw some light. I have'nt met a single owner of this bike at my place. So ur input will be very valuable for me to decide in purchasing it.

    Thank you!!

    That seems about right.
    The 'lower' fe you are getting on the highway is due to the speeds you are riding at..
    Keep it to under 75 and your FE will bump up to over 50kmpl.

    The stiff suspension is fine on the riders back. No problems to the rider, it has been really good to the riders back.
    But to the pillion it might cause some problems, you ride the bike on a ditch at a relative high speed, you can hear the pillion complain of the having a bad experience on the back.

    As i earlier replies pillion experience is a little bad on a bumpy city road,
    On long rides it seems to be better on highways with occasional complains of the calf muscle pains and back pain if the pillion is not seated upright and straight.
