The Unicorn 150 isn't just a showcase. Due to popular demand, Honda has in fact brought it back and it will be sold along with the CB Unicorn 160 and CB Hornet 160R.

There were some reports and speculations that honda would update the Hornet with a new premium switchgear and an engine-kill switch.
Has anyone checked it out?
That is one thing I find odd with Honda bikes, why is it so difficult to provide an engine kill switch, when almost all other manufacturers do. And some of the choke implementations are downright strange, like the one on the Stunner (looks like an old Amby's choke).

Were you by any chance being sarcastic?

Well done. I'm also planning to book one just to add to my fleet. What was the booking amount? What color did you go for ?

Hey wait a minute, one look at the Navi and doesn't some one get reminded of the Rajdoot Bobby albeit in a much more updated and modern avataar (see pic below, image courtesy internet) or maybe



It would be interesting to see how it sell in the real auto market when launched as it would be an unique vehicle for sure.

Whoa! Let me gain my composure as I am bit shaken. The ADV Tourer market in India is heating up and how. This has always been one of my favorite ADV Tourers in the market since the earlier days when it was launched with a 750cc and later a 650cc twin motor. It was known as the "Queen of Africa" as it won the legendary Paris Dakar Rally 4 times in a row during the 80's.

I am waiting for this one with bated breath.

Honda traditionally have 'step thru' chassis for 100cc bikes in Vietnam & other Eastern countries. It wasn't a success here when they introduced as Hero Honda 'Street'. But seems Honda is very interested in it.

Now in NAVI they used step-thru, but placed the tank between seat & front bar, to avoid 'step-thru' dislike in India. They even used scooter wheels to make it look different.

To me it looks like a step-thru bike with a tank placed on top of it.

I have booked red color. Booking was done through Honda Navi app. Booking amount is Rs.1000. The dealer called me as soon as the booking was done and informed that the delivery can be expected around March end or early April. Looking forward to this new toy...

Congrats on your booking. I'm sure you must be eager to get your hands on the Navi.

By the way did you hear anything about On-road pricing and prices for accessories from the dealer? Also when is the dealer expecting to have it in display and for TD?

Cant wait to get my hands on it...The pricing in Bangalore is not yet announced and I am promised that the information will be shared as soon as it is communicated to the dealers. Even TD dates are not clear. Some clarity should be available around 3rd week of March.
