    Worst bike to purchase.

    Yahiya Shaikh
    Purchasing Honda bikes is just like wasting of money if you ample of money to waste so you can go for Honda. I have raised my complaint regarding my bike rear disc brake of Honda Hornet 160R its been almost more than 3 to 4 months yet they have not provided me proper resolution. DEALING WITH HONDA IS LIKE A NIGHMARE.

    Worst Bike in my Lifetime

    Saravanan R
    I don't know why Honda has did this, they used the worst parts in it, every 10000-kms we should change the Chain-Sprocket. After one year Silencer & Rear Suspension has gone, it doesn't have Aerodynamics, And it is not a Racing-bike, Yamaha FZ 150cc Bike is beating this bike very easily... There is no Pickup in it... Mainly Braking is very worst in it, If you applying braking, it will skid and lead us to fall down...

  • Vehicle Engine Issue from the very first day

    Bhowmik
    I have purchased Honda Hornet 160 R from Yash Automobiles( 106/A , A-1, Suryalok Nagari Hadapsar, Pune Maharashtra - 411013) Dated 7th Nov 2017. Below is the additional detail for your ready reference. From the very first day i have been facing lots of issues like Engine Sound, Cluch Issue, Battery issue and one body part damage issue. I have raise all these issues to your Authorized Service Center during schedule service. Below is the service center detail. Name :- Yash Honda Service Center Address :- Hadapsar Pune Maharashtra-411013 They tried to resolve these issue but Engine Sound issue is still persist. After continuous follow up Service Center team agreed to the issue and requested the permission to open the Engine for further investigation. Today i got the confirmation from Service Center that there is a Manufacturing Defect in Engine and Piston and this might be the probable cause behind Engine Noise issue. This clearly indicate that your service center team is not sure on exact root cause. As opening the engine means reducing the overall performance and life of the vehicle, I request Honda team to replace the vehicle instead of repairing the faulty part in bit and pieces.

    Value for money! Exhaust note is superb!

    Bishvendra Singh
    I own a Hornet 160r CBS 2018 model. Its simply value for money bike. It's the best in its segment. It's LED headlight is just superb. It' looks muscular and bigger. This bike grabs lot of attention on roads. It's exhausts sound is just awesome. It's grunt. ?????? I was riding my hornet beside a Duke 200 everyone on roads were looking at my bike instead of Duke 200. Now you can understand that how good looking 160cc bike it is.

    CBS the worst braking system

    Anand
    I bought Honda Hornet 160 R since I have used Hero Honda CD 100 and Honda Activa and was very happy with the performance. When I went to book the bike showroom people told to go with CBS braking system for an additional 9K. So I spent a total of 1 Lakh for the bike. Initially everything was going fine I was so happy with the performance and mileage (around 50 km/ L). But then I met with an accident bike skid after on loose soil on the road, after the accident also brakes were fine. I gave my bike for service claiming insurance. It took around 1 month time for service, but after the service the braking efficiency deteriorated and when I complained with service centre they told brake cannot be tightened. I took by mike to another Honda service centre and local mechanics, everyone told the same. My 18 year old CD 100 is having a better breaking than Hornet with CBS. I even changed the disc pads but result is same. Dear Honda if a motorcycle break cannot be fixed then on what basis are you selling this to a customer, such a pathetic experience. Is CBS a test product or proven technology?. Very disappointed with Honda. Friends please don’t go for CBS model. Other problems are gear getting stuck on neutral while riding, petrol tank bolts are rusting.

    I bought this last one year back this good, but main draw back Jain sprocket , every 9000 kilometer you have to change your Jain sprocket which is cost you 2,000. Service cost is much I spent 4000 for first payed service

  • SUMMER BIKE

    smijith pb
    Hornet is good.This bike is not good to ride in rainy season .when we ride in rainy season, chain noise will occur there is no solution for that issue.They told me that after 500 km clean chain and put lube oil now i'm using lube oil after the use everyday because of noise.Another problem is chain loose it will also occurs every week.Now i"m not using this bike in rainy season. I want to ask one question to the Big Honda Company Why are you putting high rates on this bike?

    Good but expecting more from it

    Kabir Singh
    Good!!! But Head light is not so proper, infact very insufficient to view.. the muscular look of the tank is not good. One of the important thing is that it's sounds not feel like the sporty bike, seems like the 125cc honda bikes and it is disappointing for persons who loved to ride. And also it needs the rear mud guard for raining season. Using the std. Version, the braking system is not so confident for me. Expect these, the rear and front look, mileage, road grip, low maintenance etc are good......

    Sporty look and good mileage vehicle with smooth engine perf

    Kaviarasu
    I have been owning hornet 160r 2017 model. Its been more than 2 years of riding experience with this bike. For me, the best thing is its Mileage. Iam getting 52 km/l in fully city conditions.I used to ride at constant speed of 55 km/hr to get good mileage. The riding quality of this vehicle is very smooth making me feeling happy every time. The disappointment for this vehicle is that headlight is not much enough bright to ride at night time and also facing starting trouble when you put your vehicle for more than 3 days. But able to start when you should use kicker to produce enough heat to start the engine.

    Vivek
    Not up to the mark. Doesn't have pickup in 1st and 2nd gear. After 1st service also same . Then bad noice from engine and too heat. Brake pads rubbing on disc. Headlight totally disappointed.. Don't approach it for a sporty stuff. It's better than 125 cc segment. Ride on 60km speed it's ok.

  • good start but unsatisfied service

    Nikhil Kachneria
    After 1 year 9 months And proper servicing from authorised Honda showroom It is single handed bike. Top speed 110 km/h Pros- 1.Nice bulky looks. 2.CBS works fine Cons- 1. Initially the mileage was too good that is approx 50-55 km/L but continuosly with time mileage decreases now it is 42-46 km/L. 2. Seating is not comfortable. 3. Exhaust sounds is not as honda bikes are known. 4. Suspensions are tough even it has mono suspension 5. Absence of rear mud guard makes clothes dirty in rainy season when we are on high speed

  • Poor rear drum braking, poor balancing on turnings

    RAVI KRISHNA
    Front suspension is hard, seat is hard with bad cushioning, however I am getting a mileage of 56 kmpl in city roads. I am using 2016 model and drove about 32k km so far. The chain getting loose after every 1500 km around and it is an headache. My bike is rear drum brake one, and braking capability is poor., headlight focus is average, I fear to turn sharp in speed on this bike, definitely it will skid. But the engine is robust and can dominate pulsar, fz , and cbz extreme very easily. , the engine idle beating is also sounds good.
