    I wonder why HMSI is treating it's flagship Mobike as a step child. I mean I agree that engine is almost perfect but why not give a nice sports version of the UNI with a international standard graphic scheme, clips ons et all. I love and respect the Uni but was always put away from getting one because of it's plain Vanila looks/styling and the commuter riding postion.

    The FZ end of the day is a 150cc bike but is leagues ahead of it's peers in terms of styling and features and really stands out. Honda must take a cue from YAMAHA's design team and marketting teams.

    This is not an upgrade and it is waste of time to rant on it. There is a Sports version of the Unicorn coming soon (as show in AutoExpo) and will be priced much higher than the current Unicorn. Both the variants will be on sale.

    they want the volumes, and if there is anything that they can learn from HH, is that if it aint broke, then dont fix it. A testament to that are the spendor and passion series that just dont stop selling. So from a business point of view, they are doing the right thing.. From a customers angle... they can call it whatever they want,

    After what they showcased at the expo, and showing this, man its sad...

    same old wine in same old bottle, and after looking at the said "changes" it seems only the "dhakkan" is changed.

    The price increase of Rs 2000 has it's share from the increase in taxes too. As such, I don't understand why Honda keeps jacking up the prices!!!

    the viscous filter was similaly added to the activa some time ago and the model was not changed.. guess they had to show something to the pubic that is new.. and yes the old uni was code named CBF 150

    Angry Downright frustrating now!

    It is now simply frustrating to read this kind of news from Honda. The Unicorn is an excellent bike that just needs some updates to improve its image quotient and fun element. I am really saddened that Honda is treating the Unicorn so badly.
