About CB Hornet 160R

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

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

Styling wise 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. However, when it comes to the rear of the CB Hornet 160R, Honda has done a brilliant job with the tail lamp. The X-shaped tail unit looks really good and easily one of the best features of the bike.

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 with one-down four-up shift pattern. The bike gets disc brakes at both ends along with the Combined Braking System instead of the standard disc-drum setup. The front brake setup also gets a bigger 276mm disc and 220mm disc at the rear. The bike rides on the 100/80-17 tyre on the front and 140/80-17 tyre at the rear. 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 two variants – single disc and dual disc with CBS. It will be available in five colour options – neo orange metallic, pearl amazing white, sports red, pearl siren blue and pearl nightstar black.
