Both the Unicorn and FZ-S have a monoshock, which is a much more advanced design compared to the twin-shock absorbers found on the Bajaj Pulsar 150 and RTR 160 2V. The single shock can provide better bump and pothole absorption. But both the Pulsar and RTR shock absorbers are gas-charged, ensuring their suspension performance isn’t inferior to the monoshock.


Thanks to its front and rear petal disc brakes, the RTR 160 2V is expected to have better braking performance than other bikes. The Pulsar 150 two-wheeler variant is equipped with dual-channel ABS, which significantly enhances its safety features. Additionally, the Yamaha FZ S is fitted with traction control, improving safety, especially on slippery or rocky surfaces.


The Honda Unicorn is the fastest accelerator in city traffic, thanks to its narrow front tyre. However, for the stability of the straight bike, the other three bikes, both with wider tyres, are expected to perform better.
