  • Q. How is Honda hornet 160R & what about performance?

    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. 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.

    TVS Apache RTR 160 doesn’t feel as confident under hard braking as the Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 or the Honda Hornet. That said, 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. On the other hand, 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.

  • Q. Have you faced any vibrations issue? what are the pros and cons - CB Hornet 160R?

    It’s been almost 2 years. No vibration issues yet. Pros are of course the aerodynamic design it has and the grip it offers to you even when you apply sudden tight brakes. Cons are - the seating is not comfortable as it is designed that way, to make you lean towards the handle bars and ride. Also, the weight of the bike can be an issue for you if you are not used to heavy motorcycling.

    @ Aswath | Hello Sayan, Thank you for your response and I am looking for a part time job so I need mileage too.If Platina is a good option for long drive,mileage then can I buy it.I have seen in YouTube that driven for more than 1 lakh kilometers.If I can take platina in comfort,seating,all other ways.In that case can I buy platina or should I buy 150cc bike.

    If you drive between 40-50kmph max then it will be a bit comfortable but above that in high way speeds it is very uncomfortable . And when you pull platina in 60+ speeds engine will get stressed and you will get low mileage however if you consider mileage to 45kmph then you should go for fzs v3 really comfortable and good looking with good highway speed . If you have no options left you should buy atleast cb shine or suzuki access both can offer around 55kmpl mileage and both have good speed . Both can touch 90kmph speed

    Hornet has the strongest mid range amongst the 160's available here It has a sudden Torque surge after 4500 rpm and the power band is till 9500rpm , below 4500 rpm it is really very sluggish The X Blade on the other hand has a good low end , decent Mid range and absolutely no top end

    Ranjan | 6 months ago

    I have also Pulsar 180 in the make of 2005. But I have no idea about NS 160. I think turning radius of NS model is not perfect.

  • Q. Is Hornet a better Option for me I am above 50?
    Mohit
    Mohit | 8 months ago

    It will be a good option , but the power is mainly concentrated in the mid range post 4500 RPM , you'll have to ring the throttle a bit and this bike simply can't do low speeds at higher gears

  • Q. I have Honda CB Hornet 160. Rear disc brake stopping distance is too high . What can be done for this? Is this because of CBS?

    @ Rizwanuz | Hi, is this problem occured only when u ride long or carry heavy passenger with u??? Because the same I face when the weight of the bike increases or sometimes when I ride bike for long time. But I suggest you to take your bike to service center and ask them the real reason. Also you may try washing the brake plate with water thoroughly. Dust can also be a problem.

    This prob is there from the beginning and also it’s not because of weight , it happens to me all the time . Rear brake alone if I try I’ll not be able to stop the bike easily .Service center guys do nothing but changing the brake pads. I thought this prob might be because of the CBS where the pressure applied doesn’t fully goes to rear disc but also to the front brake which hinders the performance of the rear brake. I had even asked for the CBS removal . They wont do or they dont know how to do it.
