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).

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.

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.
