Let $C$ be a nonempty closed convex subset of a real Banach space $E$, let $B: C \rightarrow E $ be a nonlinear map, and let  $u, v$ be  positive numbers. In this paper, we show  that  the generalized variational inequality $V I (C, B)$ is singleton for $(u, v)$-cocoercive mappings under appropriate assumptions on Banach spaces. The main results are extensions of the Saeidi's Propositions for finding a unique solution of the variational inequality for $(u, v)$-cocoercive mappings in Banach spaces.
