Honda Unicorn

The engine is a gem. It's so torquey and it's eerie silent. The initial punch is extremely good but as can be expected it goes away once the revs climb. The gearbox is super slick but it's a bit too light for my liking. The front disc brake is no match for the Apache 150 both in terms of stopping power and feedback. The grip at the rear end is very good in comparison to the Apache which might be due to the Zappers. The styling, in my opinion is good in the profile. Head on, it could've been better.

The Unicorn is more commuter bike like to drive. It will be great for long drives. But, if you are the sort who likes to crouch low and think about racing lines, apex and braking points, you would be better advised to look elsewhere.
