Honda CB Hornet 160R Highlights

The Honda CB Hornet 160R has been updated with ABS to comply with the recent government safety norms. On the design front, the bike features a new all-LED headlamp unit, LED tail light and a full-digital instrument console. The CB Hornet 160R also gets fresh new graphics and a new colour option: Dazzle Yellow Metallic. Mechanically, though, the bike remains unchanged. 

 

The CB Hornet 160R draws power from a 162.71cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled BSIV-compliant HET (Honda Eco Technology) engine. It produces a maximum power of 15.9PS at 8500rpm and a peak torque of 14.78Nm at 6500rpm. The engine is coupled to a 5-speed gearbox and returns a company-claimed fuel efficiency of 42.85kmpl.

In terms of braking, the standard variant gets a 276mm front disc and a 130mm rear drum, while top-spec variants are equipped with 276mm front and 220mm rear disc brakes. Speaking of variants, the Honda CB Hornet 160R gets four: standard (Rs 86,500), CBS (Rs 91,000, ABS (Rs 92,000) and the top-end ABS Deluxe (Rs 94,500, all ex-showroom Delhi).
