Honda CB Hornet 160R Expert Review

Premium 150cc motorcycle buyers look for an aggressive and modern looking motorcycle and the Honda CB Hornet 160R is just that. The trapezoidal headlamp unit, large tank with edgy extensions, the petite split grab rails and the X-shaped LED tail lamp everything gives it a masculine appeal. The all-digital console comes from the Unicorn 160. Fit and finish are also as per Honda’s quality standards.

Equipped with CBS, braking duties are managed by a 276mm petal disc up front and a 220mm petal disc at the rear.The Honda CB Hornet 160R delivers a company claimed mileage of 60kmpl.Priced at 92,859 (On-road price, Delhi) for the STD variant, the Honda CB Hornet 160R rivals against the Suzuki Gixxer, Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 and Yamaha FZ V2.0

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 instrument console is purely digital which consists of speedometer, tachometer, trip meter, odometer, fuel gauge and low fuel and oil indicator lights.

To enhance the braking ability, the company has also configured the bike with a Honda’s CBS (Combi Braking System).
