Honda CB Hornet 160R Highlights
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.
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.
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.
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.
