The Honda CBX 150, as it is scheduled to be called looks really el cheapo and build to the cost. Design is very basic with upright handle bar for every day comfortable commute. The engine seems to be either 150cc from the recently discontinued but highly durable and time tasted Unicorn 150 (13 bhp) or for further parts sharing, the new 160cc Unicorn.

Sharing engine between models are not new, even performance orientated Yamaha FZ 16 and commuter friendly mileage oriented SZ (150cc) series shares the same engine but with different tuning and gear ratio. Trolling the patent image can reveal many factors like the presence of Combi Braking system (CBS) along with discontinuance of Monoshok as the bike looks to getting conventional dual shock in rear.
