The Honda Unicorn is by no means a bike that will grab attention. Yes, Honda played it safe when they launched this bike way back in 2004, at a time when the 150cc segment was in a maturing phase. Almost half a decade down the line, enthusiasts are still bored of its design which today remains very basic and conservative.
But, these pictures of the customized Unicorn 150 will make you forget the design of the original bike and admire the bike’s ‘Ready for Action’ stance.
This bike has been modified by Kolhapur-based Furious Customs, which gave the Honda bike some much needed flair in a bold new avatar. The bike looks very attractive, dominated by a well carved out fuel-tank which reminds us of the Triumph Bonneville. The rear fender is fitted to the seat to give it an off-road character. The tyres, sourced from Ralco, are a great fit and consist of a disc brake in the front wheel and drum brakes at the rear wheels.
The headlamp and tail lamps are customized as well, and the handle bars and side panels are surprisingly hand-made. The engine is the same smooth flowing one which does its duty on the stock Unicorn 150, giving a healthy 12.73 bhp of power and 12.80 Nm of torque, with an air-cooled 149.2 cc motor.
This Scrambler version of Honda Unicorn will have the ability to take on the tarmac and the adventure trail with ease. Expect the motorcycle to pose a tough challenge to other Scrambler bikes and strike a chord among the youth, who have been waiting for Scrambler bikes with an affordable price tag to be launched here in the near future.
