    I use this vehicle for past one year.. My daily travel is around 70 kms.. My bike fuel economy is around 58kmpl. I travel to my hometown from chennai 700 kms for round trip.. In highway it gives around 63 kmpl fuel economy.. Ride comfort is good... Stability is good.. Easy to cruse in highway up-to 100kmph. Better stability in panic braking..

    Buying experience is good and its riding experience is excellent looks is awesome performance is little bit good because some times its perform good and some times its perform very bad service is unsatisfying because in 6 month after purchasing date the piston problem occurs and after that the piston changed by company in 6 month after purchasing and the engine starts roughly and runs engine rough so the riding is little bit unhappy for me. Bike is good but please check other options are available in the market.

    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…

    I own cbs version of hornet and i bought it from vashi, navi mumbai (vihaan honda). Till date driven this bike for 3,000 km Overall buying experience was average. Like every other honda dealer, they don't bother providing good service once payment is done. Riding experience - good bike with handling and braking. No worries from skiding or overturning. Cbs works all fine and it's upright posture while driving makes it comfortable to ride for even long distance. I have been riding this bike in mumbai city traffic as well as on highway without any problems. (4/5 rating)Looks - it looks great and definitely an eye catcher. Sharp looks and muscular body, nice combination (4/5 rating)Performance - not really satisfied with overall performance. It is amazing bike when one rides at mid speed. Very monotonous with pick up and lacks initial thrust. With mid range speed (40-70 kmph), engine is super smooth and one would not notice riding at 70+ kmph speed. However, once you reach above 75+ kmph, engine starts dragging, suddenly vibrations starts and engine behaves very differently. No smoothness above 75kmph at all. Although handling at higher speed is again very good, one would refrain from going above 70 kmph due to louder engine sound and vibration. (2.5 / 5 rating)Mileage - mileage is just ok. If one rides within 65-70kmph and doesn't throttle aggressively (above 6k rpm) it would fetch a mileage of 47-49 kmpl. If sudden throttle and high speed is being maintained, bike still would comfortably give 45 kmpl. (3.5 / 5 rating)Other features - this bike has got very basic features. No engine kill switch (it doesn't bother me much though), just basic details on digital meter and even switch gear is as old as hero honda splendor (2.5/5 rating)Service and maintenance - i have done only first service and my overall experience was not that great. Didn't find mechanic very knowledgeable and was doing primary checks while service. Service centre charging 290 rs for chain lube which i find too much for one time line. After service, i called up service centre for clarifying my doubt over sudden vibrations and engine sound after 75kmph or 6,000 rpm, service centre had very lame excuse - " your bike is just 900 km old and engine is yet to attain desired smoothness / refinement. It would not cause noise afterwards". I wasn't convinced with this answer but still decided to wait for speeding above 70kmph. Now i'm reaching 3,000 km riding and still issue of vibration and engine noise continue after 70kmph. (2.5/5 rating)So overall - it's good bike with limited features. Engine is still good but one need to check his / her requirement before buying it. If u want to ride speeding above 80 kmph and still don't wanna feel niggles under your feet, then probably this is not a bike you are looking for. It is good bike for daily commute with routine mid riding speed Pros - good looks, avg mileage, handling, braking, good mid range performance Cons - sloppy engine performance on high speed, very basic features with switch gears and meter(ps - i have driven this bike for 3,000 km with lot of care and as per user manual. I didn't speed it over 55kmph for first 650 km since it was advised to do running-in for 500 km. Later on after advise from service centre, i did not speed it up above 70 kmph).

    I love the riding position and superior performance, power, handling, braking, Love to ride in any condition and also drive in offroad. I have experience till no maintenance expect the chain noise it's small problem but at front to rear hornet is best bike for city riding . ABOUT THE AVERAGE it's about 45-50 km/h and the top speed is 110 -115.

    I Suggest to those who have to buy hornet keep your eyes close and but it.
