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.
bikes sitting posture and seat is not good for long ride on highway and it is not comfortable for ladies who sits behind the rider. suddenly on highway back pain starts due to short size of the seat. talking about the bike performance-Pick up is good. On highway bike gives 56 kmpl average. in city ride hornet gives 48 to 52 kmpl as the biker rides the bike. over all hornet is a good package . some more space and attention has to be given where ladies take the legs. more leg space had to be given for the ladies so that they can easily sit with their sandals and shoes.
Bike is really outstanding and stands out in term of styling. The upgraded 2019 version is lot more cooler with LED DRL's And headlamp console. The sitting position and cushioning is very comfortable for long rides and you won't experience any kind of back problem. The only thing which it lags is gear shift indicator. Still it is one of the best performing bike in this segment and would recommend everyone to atleast give it a test ride. And I am saying this because I own FZ v3.0 and Gixxer 2019 model also.
I bought the ABS DLX version in April 2019.The bike is an awesome performer, I have also used it for long rides of 250+ Km's/day along with a pillion and it was equally comfortable for both of us.The ABS works perfectly well for sudden brakings and the bike is very stable at high speeds as well. The seating and posture is very comfortable and does not takes a toll on you even on rough and long roads. The power is enough to keep you ahead on the Highways.Overall its a beautiful package from Honda.
Very sexy looking bike with fat rear tyre , i will used for long rides and its comfortable only for 250 km , after than your bump will suffer like hell , its engine is very durable not problem at all till 1 and half year,its 160 cc bike but i fell lack of speed in gear 1&2, headlight is very poor not suitable for night , other wise its very good bike with good petel disk breaking system, and vast service area in india so go gor it my first paid service cost was only 740 thats too good
Performance is good, but lacks some comfort
