Powered by a 160 cc engine, HMSI revealed that the Hornet comes with the company's HET (Honda Eco Technology).

The Honda CBR650F was launched at the Honda Revfest event, which was synchronously organized in 8 cities in India.

At the Honda Revfest last month, HMSI also unveiled three new models: the Honda Hornet 160R, the Honda CBR150R facelift and the 2015 Honda CBR250R.

Apart from these three, HMSI teased a 'mystery model' with its silhouette, which will round up the company's launch plan for the year 2015. The mystery model appeared to be a commuter bike, possibly a long overdue replacement for the Honda Shine 125cc motorcycle.
