Honda CB Hornet 160R is the only bike in the segment to offer ABS as an option. In addition, it gets an all-LED headlamp unit and a fully digital instrument console. Cosmetically, the 160cc premium commuter has been upgraded as well and now gets new graphics and a new colour – Dazzle Yellow Metallic. However, there is no change to its mechanicals. The new CB Hornet 160R features the same 162.71cc single-cylinder, air-cooled BS-IV compliant HET (Honda Eco Technology) engine that produces a max power of 15.9PS at 8500rpm and a peak torque of 14.78Nm at 6500rpm. The engine is coupled to a 5-speed gearbox and is claimed to return a fuel economy of 42.85kmpl. The new CB Hornet 160R features a diamond frame suspended on telescopic forks at front and a rear monoshock unit. In terms of braking, the standard variant gets a 276mm front disc and a 130mm rear drum, while high-spec variants are equipped with 276mm front and 220mm rear disc brakes. The 2018 Honda CB Hornet 160R is available in four variants – Standard (Rs 84,675), CBS (Rs 89,175), ABS (Rs 90,175) and the top-end ABS Deluxe (Rs 92,675) (all prices ex-showroom Delhi). It rivals the Bajaj Pulsar NS 160, the Yamaha FZ-S and the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V in India.
