Default Is Honda launching a new Unicorn?

I recently met the honda dealer who was telling me about the new Unicorn expected shortly, with disc brakes on both wheels and some new updates
does anyone have any news
I was planning to buy a new one and have been waiting for a long time for some real updates to the old one

Very timely news. The Unicorn is super-smooth and comfortable to ride. A little more power will make it the best all-round city bike me thinks.

Yes. It is a very smooth engine. The self starter is amazingly smooth.

Hope they make it standout with respect to power,looks and other works. Discs for rear will be great.

The only value addition I see is the rear disc. If they throw in tubeless tyres as well, it might be worth it.

thanks for the photos
if we leave out the rear disc this looks like the "twister" which was launched recently
anyhow its high time the world leader in motorbike comes up with some zing product and they should also improve their delivery period

from the pics, it doesn't seems that the grab rails are split ones.

Looks absolutely fabulous!

Now, what HONDA needs to do is to make its non-sport's model look a little less drab!

If its the same age-old mill being given few more decimals of HP (as it is always, with HH and HMSI), i dont think that the rear disc is really needed, it being the least powered in its segment, as of now.

If HMSI launches the same thing that is shown in the pic, i am sure that it would cost around 80 kays OTR. (Having seen the way they price their products, one being Stunner Fi)
