Honda has increased the price by Rs 559 of both the models across all variants
Subsequent to the official unveiling at the Auto Expo 2018, Honda had launched the 2018 CB Hornet 160R and CBR250R in March. The CB Hornet 160R was priced starting Rs 84,675 for the base variant, going right up to Rs 92,675 for the top-spec trim with ABS. The Hornet is now priced at Rs 85,234 for the standard variant, while the fully loaded version costs Rs 93,234. The CBR250R, on the other hand, was launched at Rs 1,63,584 and Rs 1,93,107 for the for the non-ABS and ABS versions respectively. The quarter-litre offering now demands Rs 1,64,143 lakh and Rs 1,93,666 respectively. All prices ex-showroom Delhi.
Averaging at over 7,000 units a month, Honda has been able to sell the CB Hornet 160R in reasonable numbers. The CBR250R, on the other hand, hasn’t been driving sales as well as Honda would like. In April, the company could only sell 559 units of the motorcycle. Both these motorcycles had received a mild cosmetic update at the Auto Expo 2018. The refreshed CB Hornet comes fitted with a new LED headlight, a blue backlit instrumentation and hazard lights. This refresh also brought the premium commuter with new decals. The biggest talking point though was the introduction of ABS.
Apart from the BSIV compliant motor, the CBR250R didn’t get as many changes. The only other addition in features was the new LED headlamp. Just like the Hornet, this one too was launched with new, brighter colour schemes.
