The new paint schemes are similar to the ones available with the special edition CB Hornet 160R, which is still on sale. In addition to the black/green and black/orange, the CB Hornet 160R is now available in two metallic dual-tone paint schemes – red/white and blue/white. The older mono-tone paint schemes on the other hand, have been discontinued.
Powering the CB Hornet 160R is a BS IV-compliant 162cc single-cylinder engine delivering 15bhp and 14.7Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a five-speed transmission. A rear disc brake and combi braking system (CBS) are offered as optional extras.
The CBS version retails at Rs 86,595 (ex-showroom, Delhi). Optional accessories include a decal set, wheel rim stickers and coloured bar ends. It competes with the Yamaha FZ-S Version 2.0 and the Suzuki Gixxer.
