The fuel tank and saree-guard design are also unique to the CB Unicorn 160. The seat is a broad and flat single unit, and is comfortable for both rider and pillion. The bike also sports a chrome-finished muffler and floating side cowls.
Other features of the bike include a fully digital instrument console, an H-shaped LED tail lamp and rear mono shock. There are four colour options for the CB Unicorn 160 are Imperial Red Metallic, Pearl Black, Grey Metallic and Sunbeam White.
