Hey folks, Recently I bought new Honda CB Hornet in march first. Here I am going to share about the review about this CB Hornet. This review will be very helpful to someone planning for buying new bike in a budget and economic concern.
When I planned for buying a bike, comparision have come up with Yamaha Fz, Yamaha Fazer, Suzuki Gixer, Honda CB Hornet in my mind. After getting quote of these bikes I reviewd about all these bikes. I concerned about budget and economic, so Yamaha FZ, Fazer, Gixer, CB Hornet all bikes design and performance wise looks awesome. But when we think about mileage CB Hornet is better mileage than others. I liked very much about the CB Hornet Design, bulky body panels, specifically fuel tank, the X-shaped tail lamp its really good and one of the best feature.
This bike comes with two variations one is STD, and another one is CBS. The STD model on road price is Rs. 91,201 and the CBS model bikes on road price is Rs. 96,147. I used to buy the STD model, this one is good enough with all features. STD model bikes come up with front disc and rear is drum alloy wheel, and CBS model come up Dual Disc alloy wheel. But one thing we missed in the STD with CBS is , Dual Disc with Combi Brake System. So I decided to buy the STD model, that is enough for me, but when I gone through these two bikes I would suggest If someone younger one who concerns about style and crazy about razing you can go with CBS model due to the Combi Brake System. So I planned to buy a STD model, I booked the CB Hornet 160 R bike in black color, the price of this bike including road tax and Insurance (8400 + 1800) it comes around 96,000 with some accessories and some paper work. It took two weeks to delivery this bike.
About Ride in Hornet,
After taking delivery, I rode the bike it went very well and had a smooth ride, usually new bikes will be good to have a ride but I feel better to ride in CB Hornet with comfort seating , wider hand bar, Disc Brake and Smashing Head Lamp. Earlier I had back ache issue with riding some of the bikes, but till now I never felt any back ache with superb rear Monoshock suspension. I really enjoyed the ride. After one month I took first free service from the Honda’s authorized service centre, they asked me to change the oil due to some dust may be formed like that they said and if we cleaned up and change the oil means, this gives you about 5km mileage extra from your last month’s mileage. So before the first free service approximately I got 45 kmpl mileage, lets me see how will be the performance after first free service, and will update further. Till now I don’t have any issue with this bike I strongly recommend you buy this bike. Let’s have safe ride !!
