one of 160cc and another of 180cc..
delivery though, the mild state of tune that this engine is makes the enthusiast crave for more pep delivered more sharply. Honda did deliver more pep and revvability when it came up with the Dazzler, a motorcycle that ran the same 150cc four stroker as the Unicorn, but with a high lift cam to help matters get frisky. The same state of tune is what two other Hero MotoCorp motorcycles, the CBZ X-Treme and the Hunk come with while the Achiever retains the Unicorn’s state of tune.

Moving on a buying a bigger engined motorcycle for more power is an option that is always open but many riders have a bunch of memories associated with their rides, more so 150cc motorcycles as these bikes often are the first ones that many riders begin with. More power and performance is just a call or email away as RaceConcepts, a tuning firm based out of Bangalore and run by a well known tuner, Joel Joseph, has come up with its latest range of hop up parts for the whole Honda 150cc range. From the Unicorn to the just launched Impulse, these parts will work with the 150cc engine.
RaceConcepts now offers 160cc and 180cc big bore kits for the Honda Unicorn, the Dazzler, the Hero MotoCorp Achiever, the CBZ X-treme, the Hunk and the Impulse. The big bore kits will deliver a couple of ponies extra apart from completely transforming the character of the mild Honda engine to something that is much more eager to rev to its limit and delight the rider. While it is true that the Honda 150cc engine is very similar to the CRF150, and that there is a wide variety of hop up kits available across the world, RaceConcepts undercuts the kits with a high value Indian pricing along with customer service thrown in.

While Dyno figures are awaited at the moment, RaceConcepts has made a name for itself with reliable performance builds over a period of a last couple of year thereby bolstering their reputation.
