The engine performance is just superlative!...i have driven Pulsar 150 and Apache and their engine is not so refined compared to uni.

Mileage is the best for unicorn.......i used to get 50 kmpl easily.

AND, its a HONDA!! i havn't had any problem with the bike so far, just regular maintenance till now in 1.5 yrs of ownership.

and the engine is so smooth and unstressed even at high speeds that its pure delight to ride!!

pulsar on the other hand has the grunt and at high speeds, the engine lets you know that you are travelling........i think that might result in reduced engine life......just my hunch.

the unicorn is the best sorted out bike, but lacks the engine punch. so my poll goes for the grunty apache.

Iam having a pulsar 150 for almost 4 years, its trouble free and maintenance also is cheaper.

Regarding the mileage i used to get 50kmpl.

I agree with the engine refinement unicorn is very smooth

pity no one mentioned the good ole CBZ. Its my favouraite of the lot because of the following reasons.

1) the best riding position of the lot.
2) good performance ( feel its quicker than the pulsar ..someone can throw the facts )
3) 1 down 4 up gear shifting pattern.
4) looks

Bajaj just launched the 150 UG3...you get all the goodies of 180 UG3 like Digi Speedo, LED Tail lights, Alloys, New Fairing, Backlit controls, automatic indicator shifter etc. The only difference is that only 180 UG3 will sport the all black look. This is surely gonna kill the competetion in the 150CC segment.

Never forget.....Pulsar 150 is still the benchmark in the segment.

The approximate monthly sales figures of 150cc bikes in India....(Read it in the Hindu Businessline)

Pulsar (150+180) : 30,000

Apache : 7500

Unicorn : 3500

Achiever : ????


Hope you've seen the new Pulsar 150 ?

Whoa!! thts total domination!! something like the aussie cricket team

Pulsar does have a great combo of style and performance no doubt!!

Honda can do with a sportier version of Unicorn, with alloys and stuff!!

talking of the latest avatar of pulsar (whts UG3??), i didnt quite like the tail end. LED is fine but the design itself looks strange!!, the changes to headlamp are not drastic, only the console is radical.

as for all black only for 180s, i have seen many 150s in all black !!! maybe on special request or something?
