The new Honda CB Hornet 160R was taken out for a short spin in sunny Goa to see if it can make a mark in the fiercely contested premium 150cc market. Here’s the complete detail of the test.
150cc motorcycles offer a great mix of performance, frugality and affordability. In the form of the Unicorn and now the Unicorn 160, the Honda has tasted great success. But when it comes to premium 150cc offerings, Honda’s track record is unimpressive, as evident by the Honda CB Dazzler and the CB Trigger, both of which failed to make a dent in the sales chart. Undeterred, Honda plans to get third time lucky with the new CB Hornet 160R – a premium 150cc motorcycle based on the Unicorn 160. Can the new Honda CB Hornet 160R turn the tide for the Japanese two-wheeler giant in the premium 150cc segment? Read on to get the answer.
