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.

I have 2016 model orange color bike.. Merits: Its a very nice bike in 162cc.. Very nice breaking system,looks, comfortable and there is no heating issues after i ride 512kms with my wife in one day. Demerits:After 1/2 months , you have to tight your gear box otherwise you have to forcefully change gear while shifting 1st to 2nd or vice versa. In highway, if you are riding more than 100 speed continuously.. mileage will be very less.. Like 35/km and normally 40/km.

it"s a wonderful bike for daily commute.smooth in any kind of roads. fine millage.wheel base is outstanding comparing to any other 160 cc or 200cc bikes. the only negative point I find Is that the dashboard features are too less...it would have been excellent if there was a gear position indicator(helpfull for beginners), and an engine kill switch .

Just buy this one if you have enough money to get it serviced every 2 months at a authorized dealer. Or else this bike will become a hell for you. It needs to get serviced very fast and comfort for only single rider ... Ride with a pillion and you"re back is gone. Only plus point i can say is mileage. Two years old bike of mine gives 42 kmpl so thats only the gold point

Apart from the features, there are problems that needs to be mentioned.1.Gear shifting is worst(Down shifting).2.This one gets LED headlights, but the light doesn't fall on the road,So difficult in night times.Pros.1.Braking is so good(I have ABS model)2.Nice graphics.

One of the bold looking bike from Honda. Most loved part of it is its breaking as I own CBS version. Styling is also aggressive and impacting but for sure this bike lacks in few additional features like engine kill switch, gear indicator. My model
