Honda CB Hornet 160R Highlights

23 April 2018: The updated Honda CB Hornet 160R is the only bike in the segment to offer ABS as an option. In addition, it gets an all-LED headlamp unit and a fully digital instrument console. Cosmetically, the 160cc premium commuter has been upgraded as well and now gets new graphics and a new colour - Dazzle Yellow Metallic. However, there is no change to its mechanicals. The new CB Hornet 160R features the same 162.71cc single-cylinder, air-cooled BS-IV compliant HET (Honda Eco Technology) engine that produces a max 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 is claimed to return a fuel economy of 42.85kmpl. The new CB Hornet 160R features a diamond frame suspended on telescopic forks at front and a rear monoshock unit. In terms of braking, the standard variant gets a 276mm front disc and a 130mm rear drum, while high-spec variants are equipped with 276mm front and 220mm rear disc brakes. The 2018 Honda CB Hornet 160R is available in four variants - Standard (Rs 84,675), CBS (Rs 89,175), ABS (Rs 90,175) and the top-end ABS Deluxe (Rs 92,675) (all prices ex-showroom Delhi). It rivals the Bajaj Pulsar NS 160, the Yamaha FZ-S and the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V in India.

Honda CB Hornet 160R Expert Review

Overview

Premium 150cc motorcycle buyers look for an aggressive and modern looking motorcycle and the Honda CB Hornet 160R is just that. The trapezoidal headlamp, large tank with edgy extensions, the petite split grab rails and the X-shaped LED tail lamp give it a masculine appeal. The all-digital instrument console is borrowed from the Unicorn 160. 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.

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

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

Engine and Performance

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.

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.

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 company has also configured the bike with a Honda’s CBS (Combi Braking System).
