    I mistaken, honda is cheating the customers, honda hornet is always chain vibration problem don't go for honda hornet 160r its my advice for future buyers. Getting numbers of issues. I bought the bike 1.6 year ago, till now i go through the service centre 12+ time at indore (mp) for the same reasons *engine voice and *chain sprocket voice.2 time my bike engine is opened by the centre, handle is not comfortable for short height persons, handle vibration issue is always, after cross the 80+ engine is going to sound to much. Getting issue in gear it's hard to change.Sitting is not comfortable for long distance.Bike average is 30 km/lit max.Rare glass is not easily to visible.

    Hey guys, i bought this bike around 10 months back and done around 10.5k kms on it till now.The bike still looks superior,but trust me that's the only good thing about it.There are so many persistent problems like chain issue,vibes,engine heat up and notchy gearbox which makes it quite difficult to ride in city.I had to change my chain sprocket set last month.Adding to my problem is drastically falling mileage.From 48 its 38 now.Do not go for this bike guys,unless you love visiting service centre every week.

    One of my Friend owned this Bike.I just ride it for couple of days. Here my opinion about this machine.It is very smooth machine.Power delivery is too smooth but if you cross The Redline then This machine act like a asthama patient and too much vibration .After all its not a rev loving machine. Gear box are not smooth I mean its okay .let's talk about stopping power. I feel front break need to improve and rear one also. Now coming to the suspension setup, suspension are softer side. you can bump it up easily. And This Bike feel like a Big bike in fairings, you can easily control it in heavy traffic. Now Most wanted topic is Mileage. so I manage to receive 32 to 30 kmpl in city. and High way around 39 kmpl. its depends on your riding line. My pal got around 37 kmpl in city and 45 in Highways. I don't have many complaints or complement for this bike . I love this Bike's smoothness. Its okay for city ride and sometimes in Highways. just need To Improve Both breaks and Gear box . and I also Miss The "Engine kill switch". And Always Remember " There is sweet line between Riding Fast and Riding Harsh".

    Warm welcome my fellow biking brothers,

    Now i’m going to review about one of the hondas finest decision otherwise called as hornet 160r cbs. Here i'll explain in sections for your easy understanding.

    I was studding my final year of engineering degree. Just thought it’s the right time to get a motorcycle in order to make my dream fulfill.

    First of all ill start with my buying experience: 8/10

    First i was thinking apache 200,fz 2.0,gixxer and hornet due to those aggressive styling and my trust on honda i choose it. I was planning to get my bike on november 19,2016 due to demonetization problems it got postponed to november 21,2016. After a long struggle i got my hand laid on my bike it was actually a great feel. Now it’s been 24000kms in 12 months.

    Performance: 7.5/10

    If you are someone who always need your bike to perform this bike is not for you, because as for as performance concerned hornet is below average because the engine is derived from its sibling unicorn without any major changes. Those 15.6bhp engine gives you enough power to ride but you should not expect low end power but as far as mid-range is concerned that’s above average.

    Long trip:8/10

    I have done 460kms in 7 hours. With 300kms non-stop(in rain)you can comfortably cruise at a speed of 80kmph. For more than 90 mins.

    Mileage:7.5/10

    As far as mileage before my second service i got 50kmpl now i’m getting 40kmpl that’s because of change in my riding style.In this bike if u do rash driving you can easily notice the mileage drop.

    Brakes:9.0/10

    The best part of hornet those three pot nissin calipers will do the magic, these brakes have never let me down. Feedback from the brake will be great. You should really feel that to know about this brakes. Cbs works like a charm.

    Service:8.5/10

    So far so good with their wide range of service network honda can satisfy you anywhere any time.

    Tyres. 8.5/10

    Those beefy look of that tyre will tell the story. Great grip on dry road. But somewhat slippery at dry road.

    Technology:5/10

    This ios where honda fails it don’t even have engine kill switch and those controls on handle bar are years old..

    Price :7.5/10

    This is somewhat more when compared to their competitors. Should have been around 92k on road.

    Refinement:9/10

    Guys why are you seeing this title this is honda so skip………

    Improvement points:

    Head light was not up to the mark and battery is also very less capacity.

    Performance at hills are very disappointing.

    Speedometer console could have been better.

    As usual chain noise problem is there.

    No proper dust cover on rear to avoid shocks getting muddy during rainy season.

    Total score:

    Buying experience: 8/10

    Performance: 7.5/10

    Long trip:8/10

    Mileage:7.5/10

    Brakes:9.0/10

    Service:8.5/10

    Tyres. 8.5/10

    Technology:5/10

    Price :7.5/10

    Refinement:9/10

    Total-78.5/100

    Finally the decision is your..

    Thank you for spending your valuable time in reading my review. Cheers…ride hard always wear safety gears..Miles to go…
