Premium 150cc motorcycle buyers look for an aggressive and modern looking motorcycle and the Honda CB Hornet 160R is just that.

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.
