Get ready for a game-changing revolution with the new Honda CB750 Hornet. Fuelled by a state-of-the-art, parallel twin-cylinder engine that unleashes unrivalled power and mated to a lightweight, nimble chassis and Showa suspension specifically refined for sports performance, the Hornet has a serious sting in its tail. Embraced within its captivating streetfighter design, the Hornet boasts an unyielding, minimalist aesthetic that commands attention.
But that's not all. Prepare to be captivated by the cutting-edge electronics that elevate the Hornet to new heights. Equipped with advanced features like HSTC (Honda Selectable Torque Control), Wheelie Control, and a 5-inch TFT screen, this machine seamlessly blends innovation with adrenaline-pumping performance. The new Hornet is here to redefine what it means to truly enjoy the thrill of the open road.
Experience the perfect blend of mid-range torque and top-end power with the 755cc, short stroke twin-cylinder engine. With pumped-up vortex intake efficiency and super sport-spec cylinder technology, it unleashes 67.5kW at 9,500rpm and 75Nm of torque at 7250rpm. Weighing just 190kg, the Hornet combines immense power with a lightweight frame. The 270° crankshaft delivers an off-beat low and mid-rpm character. The exhaust note ranges from a rich pulse to a raucous howl at high rpm. Get ready for an unmatched ride of power, finesse and exhilaration.
The fuel tank, which is the primary distinguishing feature of the Hornet, is designed to resemble a hornet's wing. There are signs of tension and ferocity wherever you look, underlining true sports intent, from the sharply slanted nose fairing to the razor sharp, minimum tail. The design is also inherently usable for all riders. The riding stance is upright with somewhat rear set foot pegs for natural control and wide handlebars for leverage. Seat height is a very manageable 795mm.
Our goal: To engineer a twin-cylinder engine that defies expectations with its lightweight design and unparalleled power. To achieve razor-sharp pick-up and instantaneous throttle response, we employed ground breaking technology. Patented Vortex flow ducts create a seamless and consistent distribution, channelling air from the side scoops into the airbox, which in turn feeds the downdraft intakes and impressive 46mm diameter throttle bodies.
nspired by the fierce spirit of our competition ready CRF450R motocross bike, we integrated the compact, 8V Uni-cam head into the Hornet. Its short stroke of 63.5mm, coupled with an 87mm bore, delivers astounding high-rpm performance, and with a compression ratio of 11.0:1 and Ni-Sic coating on the cylinders, used in the CBR1000RRR Fireblade and CRF450R, we've reduced friction and heightened durability at elevated revolutions. An assist/slipper clutch, with oblique layout disc segments, offers light lever feel, eases up shifts and manages rear wheel hop under hard braking and rapid down changes.
By eliminating the need for a balancer drive gear, we entrusted the primary drive gear to assume dual responsibilities by spinning the balance shaft as well. This innovation minimizes mass and enhances the engine's efficiency. We also concealed the water pump within the left-hand engine cover, eliminating the necessity for a separate water-cooled oil cooler. Prepare to be captivated by the harmony of lightweight construction, cutting-edge technology, and breath-taking power.
The introduction of Throttle By Wire (TBW) technology ensures unparalleled precision, offering three default riding modes: Sport, Standard, and Rain. With a customisable User mode, allows you to fine-tune the Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) and Wheelie Control across three adjustable levels. Take control of your ride like never before by individually adjusting the Engine Power and Engine Braking to suit your desired riding characteristics.
