Honda CB Hornet 160R Highlights

Honda CB Hornet 160R Price: Honda CB Hornet 160R prices start at Rs. 86,500 (Ex-Showroom) and the top end variant Honda CB Hornet 160R ABS DLX is priced at Rs. 95,078 (Ex-Showroom). Honda CB Hornet 160R is available in 4 variants and 5 colours.
CB Hornet 160R Engine and Specifications: The Honda CB Hornet 160R is powered by the same motor seen on the Honda Unicorn 160 but the powerplant has been tweaked to extract more power, 1.9PS more to be precise. The 162.7cc air-cooled motor churns out 15.9PS of max power and peak torque of 14.8Nm. Power is transmitted to the rear wheel by a 5-speed gearbox. The Honda CB Hornet 160R employs a diamond-type frame with telescopic front forks and a monoshock at the rear. Braking is done by petal disc brakes along with the option of CBS (Combined Braking System), which engages the front with some pressure, once the rear brake is applied.

CB Hornet 160R Design and Features

Buyers in the premium 160cc segment want an aggressively styled and modern-looking motorcycle. And this is one area where the Honda CB Hornet 160R shines in spades. The trapezoidal headlamp unit is now LED lit, while the large tank and edgy fuel tank extensions give the motorcycle a sharp looking profile. The rear section is minimalistic, with split grab rails and the X-shaped LED tail lamp. The all-digital console is a straight lift from the Unicorn 160, but is white-backlit instead of orange. Fit and finish is good, but the switchgear feels dated and the engine kill switch is also missing. What’s new though, is the single-channel ABS unit, new colours and new graphics.

Honda CB Hornet 160R Competitors

Suzuki Gixxer : The Suzuki Gixxer’s engine and suspension have been developed under the watchful eyes of the same designers who also produced the Suzuki GSX-R series. This is a worthy city-based sporty 155cc bike with distinct design and enviable refinement. You would like it for its sporty and rev happy engine. The suspension setup is slightly on the stiffer side but that gives it an edge over the Yamaha FZ. It also feels nimble to flick around in the city traffic, mainly due to the riding stance it offers.

Yamaha FZ V2.0: The V2.0 delivers in style, build quality, refinement and handling. It is also the only bike in the segment to get fuel injection, but that has also upped its price out of this league. It is a strong performer and a proper upgrade to the previous version.

Bajaj Pulsar NS 160: The Pulsar NS 160 gets Bajaj’s patented DTS-i technology. The forte of this motorcycle is its ride quality and its handling characteristics. It ticks all the right boxes when it comes to style, performance and the gearbox is very slick shifting. Refinement levels though, are admirable. The Pulsar NS 160 is a worthy contender and makes a strong case for itself in this highly competitive 160cc segment.

Honda X-Blade: The X-Blade is Honda’s third product in the 160cc category and sits in between the Unicorn 160 and the Hornet 160R. Its long list of features give it plenty of oomph factor. But we are still to test it to understand its positioning between the commuter-friendly Unicorn 160 and the sporty Hornet 160R.

TVS Apache RTR 160 4V : If a bike has to survive in the cut-throat 160cc two-wheeler segment, it needs to be competitively priced and pack enough performance to keep riders happy. Thankfully, the Apache RTR 160 4V delivers well on both fronts with class-leading features. The Apache RTR 160 4V is not only the most refined RTR we have ridden till date but also one of the most refined 160cc motorcycles to be ever produced in India.

ZigSays

In the form of the CB Hornet 160R, Honda now has a competitive offering in the premium 160cc motorcycle segment. It looks the part with its sporty styling and chiselled lines. Performance of the motorcycle is also admirable with respect to its rivals and it offers decent fuel efficiency as well. It seems that Honda have got it right the third time around.

CB Hornet 160R Detailed Review

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying CB Hornet 160R

Q. Which is better among Pulsar 150 and Honda Hornet 160R?
  • First of all in 150 cc segment Bajaj offers 3 pulsar models. 1-Classic 150. 2-Pulsar 150 standard. 3-pulsar 150 Dual Disc. Classic and standard offers 55kmpl mileage, where as dual disc offers 50kmpl mileage due to more weight, dual disc, wide tyre. So if you want more mileage then go for classic or standard according personal favourite. If you want style and mileage you can manage then go for dual disc. It is very good handler, best in city as well as highway ride. Next if you are considering hornet 160R then it will not provide as much mileage as pulsar. It will provide around 40kmpl mileage. It has much fat tyre than pulsar. Weight is also more. So it will not as good as in city. You ca say it will provide more grip on high way while breaking. But comparing both pulsar is more ajile, you can ride smoothly in city traffic. The feeling of Flawless Riding experience you can only feel in pulsar. So better go for Pulsar. : By Rakesh | 4 days ago
  • As per my experience and the design of vehicle pulsar 150 is best for safe ride Because the scratch guard is extended and footrest of pillion will not let for direct contact of the body during an accident. And there is good road grip. Better wear riding gears : By MURTHY | 1 year ago
  • Go for Hornett b coz pulsar has too much Maintance cost compare to hornet after 4 year i use only 30k km although my metre chain break 2k exp of it and jumper also gone and other exp also average 13k is exp after 3 and half year of use. : By Rahul | 11 months ago

    CBS the worst braking systemI bought Honda Hornet 160 R since I have used Hero Honda CD 100 and Honda Activa and was very happy with the performance. When I went to book the bike showroom people told to go with CBS braking system for an additional 9K. So I spent a total of 1 Lakh for the bike. Initially everything was going fine I was so happy with the performance and mileage (around 50 km/ L). But then I met with an accident bike skid after on loose soil on the road, after the accident also brakes were fine. I gave my bike for service claiming insurance. It took around 1 month time for service, but after the service the braking efficiency deteriorated and when I complained with service centre they told brake cannot be tightened. I took by mike to another Honda service centre and local mechanics, everyone told the same. My 18 year old CD 100 is having a better breaking than Hornet with CBS. I even changed the disc pads but result is same. Dear Honda if a motorcycle break cannot be fixed then on what basis are you selling this to a customer, such a pathetic experience. Is CBS a test product or proven technology?. Very disappointed with Honda. Friends please don’t go for CBS model.Other problems are gear getting stuck on neutral while riding, petrol tank bolts are rusting.
