About CB Hornet 160R

The CB Hornet 160R is Honda’s answer to the Yamaha FZ-S and the Suzuki Gixxer. Based on the CB Unicorn 160, the CB Hornet 160R is the stylish 160cc offering from the Japanese manufacturer.

The CB Hornet 160R is Honda’s answer to the Yamaha FZ-S and the Suzuki Gixxer. Based on the CB Unicorn 160, the CB Hornet 160R is the stylish 160cc offering from the Japanese manufacturer.

The CB Hornet 160R is easily the best looking bike in its segment. With its macho look, which Honda was able to achieve by using bulky body panels, especially the fuel tank, Honda plans to target buyers who are style conscious. While the fascia still reminds us of the CB Unicorn Dazzler, the side profile is the best way to look at this motorcycle. The rear of the CB Hornet 160R also stands out thanks to the X-shaped tail lamp. In addition to this, it gets an LED headlamp, and a hazard light switch where one would ordinarily have got an engine killswitch.

The CB Hornet 160R is powered by a 163cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine that produces 15.7bhp at 8500rpm and peak torque of 14.76Nm at 6500rpm. This engine is mated to a five-speed gearbox. The bike gets disc brakes at both ends along with the Combined Braking System instead of the standard disc-drum setup. Single-channel ABS is now an option, but both ABS and CBS are not available together. The front brake is larger than the CB Unicorn 160’s, at 276mm. The rear disc size is 220mm. The bike rides on a 100/80-17 front tyre and 140/80-17 rear tyre, which matches the widest in the segment. The fuel tank capacity stands at 12 litres and the kerb weight at 142kg for the CBS version and 140 for the standard version.

This bike is offered in five variants – the mechanical differences are with the brakes. You can have a standard brake setup, ABS, or CBS. The other two options are cosmetic variations called ‘Special Editions’ that have different graphics. ABS is not an option for the Special Edition Hornet. It is available in five colour options – orange/black, white/blue, red/grey, green/black and yellow. The Hornet is priced at Rs 81,863 (ex-showroom) and competes against the Yamaha FZ S and Suzuki Gixxer.

The Bajaj Pulsar NS160 hopes to catch the fancy of the premium 150cc commuter segment - but will it manage to claw its way up to the up? The first obstacle is this, the Honda CB Hornet 160R. We have a look.

What we have here are two obvious players in the affordable and performance centric commuter class, and one outsider of sorts. The TVS Apache 200 4V – one of the obvious players, given it has nearly 20bhp – is the newest entrant. And though it is available both with fuel...
