Questions and Answers

Most Popular Answers for Honda Hornet
Which is the best choice: Hunter 350 or Honda Hornet 2.0?
13 January 2023 11:10

Both Royal Enfield Hunter 350 and the Honda Hornet 2.0 are great motorcycles in their own right. The Hunter 350 is a great bike for those looking for an affordable, yet stylish small-capacity motorcycle. It has a retro design, great handling and friendly nature that makes it attractive to new riders. On the other hand, the Hornet 2.0 has great handling dynamics and a frugal engine. It also has features such as USD fork and LED lighting which give it a premium feel. However, the lack of engine excitement may put a damper on some riders. Ultimately, we suggest that you take a test ride of both the bikes to decide which one suits you better.

I want to buy a sporty look, good maintenance, mileage and value for money bike for my Son, should I go for Honda Hornet 160 or any other bike?
29 December 2022 06:07
Honda CB Hornet is an excellent motorcycle with a superbike inspired rear end as well as a great street fighter design. The bike comes with a 162.71 cc engine and responds very well to the throttle. It would be the best option for him while you may even consider his own choice as he may like faired bikes more than these street fighter types. It comes with Honda CBS for efficient braking and buying the dual disc variant would be a better option than the single disc one.
What is the minimum down payment for Honda Hornet 160R in Sivakasi, Tamilnadu, India?
29 December 2022 05:59
The minimum down payment in most cases is the amount equivalent to the EMI being generated for the motorcycle. You can contact your nearest Honda dealership for the exact distribution of EMI's over your required period of time. Honda CB Hornet comes with a price tag of INR 81,307 for the non CBS and INR 85,807 for the CBS variant. The on road price becomes higher and you have to pay the RTO fee and other charges out of the EMI amount. This makes it good for at least 15,000 in hand to buy a CB Hornet 160R.

Not a good bike to invest in

Ashish Kumar Sharma | One year ago

After owning the Honda Hornet, I have come to realize that it doesn't quite measure up to the Honda Hornet 160r. The rear disk brake is incredibly noisy when I apply the brakes. I took it to the service center, and they changed the brake pads, but the sound got even worse. The rear suspension was also noisy when I moved the bike or even sat on it. The starting pickup was abysmal. It would start like it had low fuel, and after 10 minutes of driving the engine would return to its normal range. The mileage was incredibly low, clocking in at less than 40km/l. The date also gets reset automatically every day, which is incredibly strange. The lighting was not as good either. The low pickup engine made me fall off the bike, which was really concerning as it couldn't move properly.

Excellent bike with great build quality and a stylish look

Charu Jain | One year ago

Honda Hornet 2.0 is an excellent bike with great build quality and a stylish look, especially with the X-Back light. It's especially suited for short riders due to its bulky frame. After owning it for 5 years, I have had no issues with its performance.

The only downside I have found is the poor quality of the side guard. After an unfortunate accident, the side guard was unable to support the bike and it fell on my leg. It is only bolted onto the round chassis of the bike, which is not ideal for safety.

The combination braking system does not offer the best control. When you brake and the handle is slightly crossed, the control goes off due to the combination braking system. This system is not suitable for bulky bikes.

A terrible product

Md Shafi Imran | One year ago

I have had a terrible buying experience with the Honda Hornet. The customer service was downright appalling and I felt like I was being treated like a beggar. The riding experience is just good, but it is not up to the mark. The looks and performance are great, but the plastic items and switches are of very poor quality. The stickers had started coming off after just 800 kms. The engine and USB paint also got removed. The ground clearance is less. In conclusion, I think the Honda Hornet is a terrible product.

An excellent choice for city commuting

Vijay Kumar Dahiya | One year ago

When it comes to city commuting, the Honda Hornet 2.0 is an excellent choice. Lightweight at 142kgs, the bike is easy to handle and maneuver through tight spaces. The engine is smooth and refined, and the bike looks great with its 110/70 & 140/70 tyres. The brakes are great, giving you complete control over the bike. The mileage of 40km/l is great for city commuting, and the gear shifts are smooth as butter. The low and mid-range performance is best in the class, and although it lacks a 6th gear, it is more than enough for city use.

The initial issues like engine heating and noise from rear brakes can be resolved after the first service. Some bikes may also have a lockset issue, but this should resolve itself in a month or so, or a new lockset can be installed.

Overall, the Honda Hornet 2.0 is an excellent choice for city commuting. It is lightweight, powerful, looks great, and has great mileage and performance. Highly recommended for a smooth and pleasurable riding experience.

The Honda Hornet is a great choice for the everyday rider. It's comfortable, stylish and reliable. The engine is smooth and powerful enough to get you around town or on the highway. It has great fuel economy and is perfect for those who don't want to break the bank on gas. The bike has a great look and feel, too. It looks okay the road and is attractively priced. The Hornet is a great buy and I highly recommend it.

After my 4+ months of riding the Honda Hornet, I have been nothing short of impressed. It's smooth, refined, and incredibly easy to handle. It has a maximum speed of 100 kmph, with a comfortable ride at 80-90 kmph. I have had a chance to test ride many other bikes in the same 150-200cc range, but nothing beats the Hornet. The 5 gears provide plenty of power, and a 6th gear isn't necessary. There is no vibration, and the mileage I get is between 38-43 km/liter in cities. If you're looking for a great ride, give the Honda Hornet a test ride and you won't regret it. Enjoy the riding pleasure!

Good buying experience and nice to ride, the Honda Hornet gives you a big bike feel with 0-100 acceleration being pretty quick. The comfortable cruising speed is around 6400rpm in 5th gear which is 85-90. As soon as you cross 110 kph the bike tends to feel stressed but is still super stable and confident. The bike's engine refinement is its key highlight, making it great for city riding and daily commute as it only weighs 142 kg kerb, making it easy to filter through traffic. Plus, service and maintenance for the bike is easy on your pocket.

- Great looks
- USD feels premium
- Gives you a big bike feel
- Stability
- Engine refinement

- Plastic quality and fit and finish could have been better
- Headlight is not ideal for night rides on the highway with speed
- Rearview mirrors are useless
- Chassis looks too basic, could have used two rods in front instead of a single
- Metal parts like the muffler catch rust soon, and the paint quality on those metal parts could have been better

Overall, the Honda Hornet is a great bike and I hope Honda won't discontinue it, but will instead upgrade it into a more premium package. If they do decide to discontinue the bike, like they did with the legendary CBF Stunner, I will surely not visit a Honda showroom again.

The Honda Hornet is an impressive bike with good performance and mileage. It is a great option for daily commuters who need a reliable and fuel-efficient vehicle. It has a smooth gearbox with no knocking even at low speeds, making it great for city driving. The torque at low and midrange is impressive, and the ride is comfortable and stable at high speeds. The service and maintenance costs are also low, thanks to the simple air-cooled engine.

The main downside of the Hornet is that the top end is quite flat after 110 km/h and it takes a long time to reach the top speed from 4th to 5th gear. The seat is also quite small, so the old Hornet and FZ V1 seats offer more space. The headlight throw and brightness is not adequate either.

Overall, the Honda Hornet is a great option for anyone looking for a reliable, fuel-efficient and easy-to-maintain bike. It is well suited for short to medium distance commuting and for those who don't want to spend too much on a bike. The performance is good and the torque is impressive. The maintenance costs are low and the ride is comfortable and stable.

As a loyal customer of the Honda Hornet , I am very disappointed in the quality of the product. Despite the fact that I have been using it for the past couple of years, I have faced a major manufacturing defect with the key set which has led to the replacement of the key set twice, in the span of a year. This suggests that the fault lies in either the Research and Development Department or Quality Assurance Department.

What is more, the customer service centre has only recommended that I replace the key set as the solution. Furthermore, I have been asked to pay for the replacement since my key tag is not available.

I feel extremely let down and disappointed by the Honda Hornet  and I hope that this mail will reach the attention of the Honda customer care.

The Honda Hornet is an eye-catching bike with good riding experience. However, it falls short in terms of value-for-money, as the cost is quite high for the features it comes with. The performance could be improved with a 6-speed gearbox and dual-channel ABS, which would make it more reliable and safer. Unfortunately, it isn't strong enough to handle even minor accidents, as I found out after my bike was bent on one side after being hit by another bike. The servicing and maintenance is good and cost-effective, but I find the single LED indicator a bit of a letdown when compared to other bikes of the same price range. The seat is also quite uncomfortable, making it hard for both the rider and the pillion during long rides. The power of the bike is great and the initial pick-up is amazing. However, the gear shifting can be a bit off at times and the headlamps could be brighter. The wind-cutting is also quite poor and the rear tyre could do with a 20mm increase, while the front could benefit from a 10mm increase. All in all, the Honda Hornet is a great bike, but it could do with some improvements.
