Honda CB Hornet 160R Highlights

The Honda CB Hornet 160R BS6 is likely to be launched in mid-2020. Check out our analysis for more details. In a related development, Honda India also filed a patent for the China-specific CBF190R, which may go on to be a larger Hornet. More details in this story.

 

Honda CB Hornet 160R Price:

Honda used to offer the Hornet in two variants: standard and deluxe. Prices for the two trims were set at Rs 93,042 and Rs 95,542. The BS6 Honda CB Hornet 160R prices are bound to be higher by roughly Rs 13,000. All prices, ex-showroom Delhi. 

 

Honda CB Hornet 160R Features:

The Honda Hornet was quite a feature packed motorcycle. Aside from the edgy bodywork and snazzy graphics, the Hornet also had a full digital information console, and LED headlight and tail-light. Expect the BS6-compliant version to have a few design tweaks.

 

Honda CB Hornet 160R Engine:

The Honda CB Hornet 160R was powered by a 162.71cc single-cylinder air-cooled carburetted engine. We expect Honda to use a tweaked version of the BS6 Unicorn's engine. In the Unicorn, the motor makes 12.9PS at 7500rpm and 14Nm at 5500rpm. On the other hand, the Hornet BS4 engine produced 15.9PS at 8500rpm and 14.78Nm at 6500rpm. The engine is coupled to a 5-speed gearbox and returns a company-claimed fuel efficiency of 42.85kmpl. In the BS6-compliant model, expect Honda to use the same 5-speed transmission as the BS4 version.

 

Honda CB Hornet 160R Suspension & Brakes:

On the Honda Hornet, you would find a telescopic fork and a preload-adjustable monoshock. Braking hardware on the standard model consists of a front disc and rear drum brake setup while on the deluxe you would get disc brakes at both ends. Single-channel ABS was standard across the trims. Expect these to remain unchanged in the BS6 bike as well.

 

Honda CB Hornet 160R Rivals:

All rivals of the Honda CB Hornet 160R have been upgraded to meet the BS6 emission norms. The Hornet 160 competes with the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Suzuki Gixxer, Bajaj Pulsar NS160 and the upcoming Hero Xtreme 160R.

CB Hornet 160R Expert Review

The new Honda CB Hornet 160R now comes with a new LED headlamp, redesigned digital instrument console and a single channel ABS unit. The Hornet 160R features an agressive design thanks to its trapezoidal headlamp, large tank with edgy extensions, the petite split grab rails and the X-shaped LED tail lamp. The redesigned all-digital instrument console gets silver trim and looks sporty now. The quality, fit and finish are also as per Honda’s quality standards.

The Honda CB Hornet 160R gets the same engine as the Honda Unicorn 160. However, the 162.7cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine is tuned to produce a higher power output of 15.9PS at 8500rpm, while peak torque of 14.8 Nm is generated at 6500rpm. The HET-equipped engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox.

Equipped with Honda’s combi-braking system (CBS), braking duties are managed by a 276mm petal disc up front and a 220mm petal disc at the rear. A single channel ABS unit cones standard in top variants.

The Honda CB Hornet 160R delivers a company claimed mileage of 60kmpl.

 

Priced at Rs 81,863 (ex-showroom Delhi) for the STD variant, the Honda CB Hornet 160R competes with the Suzuki Gixxer, Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 and Yamaha FZ V2.0

Design and Features

The front profile of the bike is equipped with an edgy LED headlamp section at the front with clear lens turning indicators. Further, it has a dual tone shade front mudguard and muscular fuel tank. Its fuel tank is precisely chiselled which look amazing with the tank shrouds and offers an excellent riding posture to the rider. The bike comes with a single split seat that proves itself as a handy feature to the rider as well as pillion. Coming to the rear, It has an X-shaped tail light and LED tail lights. Its redesigned instrument console is purely digital which consists of speedometer, tachometer, trip meter, odometer, fuel gauge and low fuel and oil indicator lights.

It houses a 162.71cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled 4-stroke SI engine with Honda Eco Technology (HET) that is mated to 5-speed gearbox. The bike uses a Wet Multi-plate clutch assembly system to transmit the power to the rear wheels. The motor churn out 14.5bhp of power at 8000 rpm and 14.61Nm of torque at 6000 rpm. It comes with a compression ratio of 10:01 along with a power-oriented bore x stroke ratio of 57.3 mm x 63 mm.

Braking and Handling

Honda CB Hornet 160R is designed on a tubular diamond frame. It runs on 17-inch wide tubeless tyres that are mounted over elegant alloy wheels. The braking duties are carried out by drum brakes at both, front and rear end. Furthermore, the bike is furnished with a suspension system that includes telescopic forks at the front and spring loaded hydraulic type (mono shock) at the rear. To enhance the braking ability, the higher variants get a single channel ABS unit while the lower ones come with Honda’s CBS (Combi Braking System).

Safety and Features
