On 17th July 2017 Bangladesh government gave permission that in Bangladesh you can import, manufacture or sale motorcycles from 50 cc up to 165 cc, the old restriction was up to 155 cc. Upon doing so far we have seen the launch of TVS Apache RTR160, Bajaj Pulsar NS160 & finally Honda CB Hornet 160R.
Honda CB Hornet 160R was launched in India at December 2015 but sadly due to regulation in Bangladesh it took over 2 years to come in Bangladesh. Currently BHL will only bring single disc brake version in Bangladesh and we are expecting after 6 months we will get the Combo Braking System (CBS) edition.

In this motorcycle Honda added HCT (Honda ECO Technology) which deceases the friction in the engine components which offers better performance & also helps to improve the fuel efficiency of the motorcycle. Although we are not sure about the price as it will be announce on 16th February.
The Hornet 160R looks even better in the flesh – muscular, big bike like, and completely new age. The tank in particular – with its extensions and that black plastic strip makes it look like a 250 cc. The chunky forks and fat tyres further helping the cause. The X-shaped tail lamps are a good addition too. Among the current crop of stylish 150s, this is the one you’d want to buy for its looks alone. Adding to the Hornet’s charm is its class matching quality and fit and finish levels; this bike looks every bit as expensive as it is.
The new motorcycle will be available in 3 different colours in the name of Sporty Red, Blue Metallic, and Striking Green. With every new motorcycle you will get 20,000 km or 2 years engine warranty only if you buy from any authorized dealer in Bangladesh.
