Asia Bizz: For people in India who are waiting to own the new 150cc CB Unicorn motor bike, it looks like they might have to wait for as long as six months for its delivery after booking the motorcycle. The company – Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India – has increased the waiting period of the CB Unicorn model considering the huge demand for it.
The new Unicorn bike was introduced in the year 2005 in the Indian market. The motorbike has been developed by the R&D team in Japan and is internally called the CB150M.
The bike was designed specially to suit the Indian roads. After the first edition was launched, the company had made some minor changes and had called it the CB Unicorn to comply with the Euro III norms.
The Unicorn had successfully competed with other bikes in the 150cc segment in the Indian market including Apache 160cc of TVS and the Pulsar from Bajaj. The reports of the increase in the waiting period were confirmed by the senior company official, who said that it was due to the unprecedented demand of the bike. The official on the condition of anonymity also added that they have not stopped the production, but have increased the waiting period due to the increase in the demand of the bike.
