Due to arrive in Kiwi dealers in April, the all-new Honda Hornet finally has an official price for New Zealand.
Blue Wing Honda, Honda Motorcycle's New Zealand distributor, today confirmed the CB750 Hornet will enter the market priced at $15,995.
The CB750 Hornet will debut Honda's new mid-capacity 755cc SOHC parallel-twin engine in our market with the hotly anticipated Transalp 750 expected here mid-year with a yet-to-be-set price point.
Claimed power for the Hornet is 90.5hp (67.5kW) at 9,500 rpm and 75Nm at 7,250rpm respectively.
The electronics package features a 5-inch TFT dash, Throttle By Wire (TBW) which allows for the three rider modes and 3-level Honda Selectable Torque Control (HSTC) with integrated Wheelie Control, plus 3 levels of Engine Braking and Power delivery.
The engine is cradled in a rather aesthetically pleasing steel frame with a welded subframe. The low seat height of 795mm and claimed kerb weight of 190kg should also ensure the new Hornet should be very manageable by a wide range of riders.
Suspension and brakes are a Japanese affair, with a set of Showa forks matched by a rear shock while braking is supplied by Nissin calipers.
In other markets, Honda is debuting the Hornet with a full range of accessories, including a quickshifter, soft luggage, engine protectors and cosmetic enhancements. All of which should be ready to go at the time of the official launch.
