Review Of CB Hornet 160R ABS

The 150cc section can be visible as the stepping stone in phrases of overall performance. The 150cc bikes offer a first-rate mix of performance, frugality, and affordability. In the shape of the Honda Unicorn and now the Unicorn 160, the Japanese -wheeler large has tasted tremendous success.

Design & Features:

Buyers within the top rate 150cc segment need an aggressively styled and cutting-edge searching motorbike. Honda appears to have understood this reality and we need to say that the Honda CB Hornet 160R is a hanging searching motorcycle (Source).

One is welcomed with a trapezoidal headlamp unit with twin pilot lamps smartly incorporated into it, whilst the huge tank and edgy fuel tank extensions deliver the motorcycle a sharp searching profile. The rear segment is petite with split snatch rails and the X-shaped LED tail lamp endows the Hornet 160 with a unique searching tail section.

Other thrilling bits on the new bike includes multi-spoke alloy wheels, stubby exhaust muffler and naked carbon end on gasoline tank and center frame panel. The all-digital console is a straight elevate from the Unicorn 160 and a redesigned console could have been extra welcome.

Fit and end is ideal but the switchgear feels a era antique and desires to be updated. Engine kill switch has been given a miss, which is unacceptable on a top rate motorbike. We additionally did not like the first-rate of the switchgear at the CB Hornet 160R and concept it can have been better.

Engine & Performance:

The engine used on the Honda CB Hornet 160 is exactly the identical unit as visible on the Unicorn 160. But the powerplant has been tweaked to extract extra juice out of it. The 162.7cc air-cooled motor churns out 15.9PS of max strength and peak torque score of 14.8Nm. This makes the brand new 150cc motorcycle round 1.4PS and 0.2Nm of torque more than the Unicorn 160. Power is transmitted to the rear wheel with the aid of a 5-pace gearbox.

The engine has an excessive-revving nature and one needs to feed within the revs for the power band to kick in which is a trait much like better displacement Honda automobiles. Acceleration is good for a 150cc bike however the CB Hornet 160R feels a chunk strained above 90kmph with vibes kicking in via pegs and handlebar. In-tools acceleration is also first rate which is helpful whilst overtaking at the highways.

The 5-pace gearbox is notchy especially from 1st to 2nd gear which has similarities trait to the Honda Unicorn 160. But the gear ratios had been well dispensed specifically for riding in visitors. Honda hasn’t launched gas performance figures for the Hornet 160, it’s far secure to count on a mileage parent of around 45kmpl usual.

Ride, Handling & Braking:

The Honda CB Hornet 160R employs a diamond-type body as seen at the Unicorn 160. Handling of the motorcycle is magnificent as it dives into corners with notable enthusiasm.

Improving the coping with dynamics similarly is the 140mm segment chunky rear tyre that aids the rider in growing the tilt perspective of the motorbike.Riding posture at the motorcycle is upright with the flat and extensive take care of bar feeling quality to preserve, and also you get a sensation of using a better displacement streetbike. The footpegs are mildly rear-set which gels well with the overall dynamics of the Hornet 160R and a toe best tools shifter has been supplied.

The seats feel a piece stiff and one can not snugly hold the fuel tank that’s a piece disappointing. The new Honda 150cc bike employs telescopic the front forks and monoshock unit on the again and the general trip satisfactory is ideal because it swallowed undulations and damaged roads without any problem.

Braking is accomplished via petal disc brakes at each ends and the motorcycle we tested turned into the CBS model, and universal braking overall performance changed into respectable. They offer top chunk however higher development from the levers would have been welcome.


In the form of the CB Hornet 160R, Honda now in the end has a competitive imparting inside the top class 150cc motorbike segment. It seems the component with its sporty styling and chiseled strains making it a visually attractive motorcycle.

Performance of the motorcycle is likewise appropriate with admiration to its opponents and it gives decent fuel efficiency as nicely. It seems that Honda has got it right the third time around however whether the clients will give the Japanese bikemaker the third hazard to success is something most effective time will inform.
