Honda CB Hornet 160R Highlights

Honda may be working on a bigger more powerful CB Hornet. Head here for more details. The Honda CB Hornet 160R was last 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. 

 

Suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks at the front and a rear monoshock unit. 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 93,042) and the top-end ABS Deluxe (Rs 95,542, all ex-showroom Delhi). It rivals the Bajaj Pulsar NS 160, the Yamaha FZ-S and the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V in India.
