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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
So far so good with their wide range of service network honda can satisfy you anywhere any time.
Those beefy look of that tyre will tell the story. Great grip on dry road. But somewhat slippery at dry road.
This ios where honda fails it don’t even have engine kill switch and those controls on handle bar are years old..
This is somewhat more when compared to their competitors. Should have been around 92k on road.
Guys why are you seeing this title this is honda so skip………
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.
Buying experience: 8/10
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…
