i think the newer cb600 is better than the 900. in my opinion the 6 looks better, and judging from the magazine, the 600 takes its engine from a previous cbr600 model.

 

yes the suspension is monoshock, its more towards a sport bike look and feel, cos if they didnt do it this way it will just be a replica of a S4 won't it?

 

if u see the pics above, some of them have boxes on, but IMO it won't look so nice anymore, s4 with boxes are better off than hornets with boxes.

 

about the pillon getting burn thingy, yea i would like to know too, does it get hot there? i guess it applies for all of the hornets, 250/600/900.

 

i'm thinking of getting a hornet when i get my class 2 license too

Better to be loved, than to hate...

i agree that hornet with box not too nice and S4 looks more at home with a box fixed on. but for the money i save on road tax insurance and fuel... i think its a good trade. plus the box been made such thaat its pretty easily removable.

 

as for the pipe burning the legs, its been asked a lot of times. no there's no danger of scalding the pillions legs unless she's not wearing long pants or jeans. even if kena scalded its very minor, just a slight red mark for a day or two.

Hornet 919 Review

2004 Honda Redbook

 

 

Talk about naked aggression: Stripped to its shirt-sleeves, the 919 combines aggressive looks with open-class muscle in a lightweight package that also offers all-around comfort and amazing versatility.

 

 

Features & Benefits

 

43mm front fork with preload and compression damping adjustments.

 

Instrumentation includes a clock, digital odometer with two tripmeters, black face analog speedometer, tachmeter, water temperature with white numerals, indicator lights for neutral, FI (fuel injection), oil pressure, low fuel and high beam.

 

Unique Features

 

 

Muscular 919cc open-class engine-inspired by the legendary CBR®900RR--pounds out impressive torque and surprising top-end horsepower.

 

A feathery, 194kg weight makes the 919 the lightest bike in its class.

 

The comfortable, upright seating position is ideal for commuting, sport riding and long trips.

 

Honda's latest programmed fuel injection (PGM-FI) and electronic digital ignition maximize power output and offer immediate throttle response.

 

Stylish, dual center-up exhausts exit below the rear cowl.

 

Massive square-tube mono-backbone frame and a large aluminum swingarm combine to provide an ideal balance of rigidity and flexibility for superb road feel.

 

43mm cartridge front fork, single-shock rear suspension and lightweight cast aluminum three-spoke wheels contribute to exceptional handling.

Engine/Drivetrain

 

 

 

Compact 919cc DOHC liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder engine is tuned for low-end and mid-range power for spirited acceleration.

 

One-piece upper crankcase/cylinder assembly, right-side cam-drive design and a narrow, 32 degree included valve angle help make the 919 engine the lightest, most compact powerplant in its class.

 

Sixteen-valve cylinder head with a 10.8:1 compression ratio promotes efficient combustion and high horsepower production.

 

Direct shim-under-bucket valve actuation system is compact, ensures high-rpm durability and allows 16,000-mile valve maintenance intervals.

 

High-pressure programmed fuel injection (PGM-FI) delivers fuel at 50 psi to four injectors, each mounted in a 36mm throttle body. Fuel is delivered through four laser-drilled nozzle holes in each injector, producing a highly atomized air/fuel charge for maximum combustion efficiency and power.

 

Advanced programmed fuel injection (PGM-FI) features a sophisticated throttle sensor and advanced fuel-injection mapping to produce smooth and linear throttle response, responding precisely to fine throttle adjustments.

 

16-bit electronic control unit (ECU) provides two digital 3-D fuel injection maps for each cylinder and one digital 3-D ignition map for cylinder pairs, creating ideal fuel mixture and spark advance settings for superb rideability.

 

Liquid-cooled oil cooler and a lightweight aluminum radiator keep engine temperatures in check for consistent performance and long engine life.

 

Spring-loaded scissors-type gear on the drive side of the crankshaft and a rubber-mounted, floating clutch-cover help reduce noise.

 

Weight-saving features include a compact, lightweight one-piece alternator.

 

Unique four-into-two-into-one-into-two exhaust design features expanding-diameter tubing leading into the two center-up mufflers, contributing to strong mid-range torque and an exhilarating exhaust note. Stainless steel exhaust header and main pipe are attractive and corrosion-resistant. Polished stainless steel muffler-covers shield passenger's legs from muffler heat.

 

 

High-capacity, 380-watt AC generator.

 

Maintenance-free automatic cam-chain tensioner.

 

Smooth-shifting six-speed transmission with gear ratios carefully matched to the engine's powerband.

 

Durable #530 O-ring-sealed drive chain.

Chassis/Suspension

 

 

Massive square-tube mono-backbone steel frame utilizes the engine as a stressed frame member. Together with the reinforced steering head, the chassis provides an optimal balance of rigidity and tuned flex for superb handling.

 

A single box-section downtube reaches down to a unique front engine-mount that incorporates a cross-member to link the frame to the engine's solid front mounts.

 

Lightweight aluminum swingarm features a large one-piece cast pivot block and extruded triple-box-section spars.

 

43mm cartridge front fork with adjustable preload with compression damping and 4.7 inches of travel offers unparalleled rigidity for precise action and excellent handling on a variety of road surfaces.

 

Lightweight aluminum upper triple-clamp adds rigidity for even better steering control.

 

Single-shock rear suspension features a high-quality damper with seven-position-adjustable spring preload, 5.0 inches of plush wheel travel and a remote fluid-reservoir for added suspension control in all riding conditions.

 

Braking system features two huge, 296mm front discs with four-piston calipers and a 240mm rear disc with a single-piston caliper for exceptional stopping power.

 

Aluminum-alloy super-light, hollow three-spoke wheels with 3.5 x 17-inch front and 5.5 x 17-inch rear dimensions.

Additional Features

 

 

Wide, durable vinyl-covered seat with thick foam padding provides plush comfort for commuting and two-up day trips.

 

A stylish hugger-type rear fender closely follows the curve of the rear tire.

 

Instrumentation includes a clock, digital odometer with two tripmeters, black face analog speedometer, tachmeter, water temperature with white numerals, indicator lights for neutral, FI (fuel injection), oil pressure, low fuel and high beam.

 

19litre/268km range fuel tank is hinged for servicing ease.

Reserve Lite with 4litre remains. gives 50 km ride to Jb for top up.

 

Aviation-style fuel cap.

 

Engine-mounted manual fuel enricher provides smooth idling speed for cold engine starts.

 

A bank-angle sensor shuts off fuel supply to the PGM-FI system if the motorcycle tips over, but is unaffected by bumps and vibration during normal operation.

 

A large multi-reflector headlight with a twin-filament H4 low/high beam provides superb roadway illumination.

 

Maintenance-free battery is lightweight with sufficient starting capacity for all riding seasons.

 

Rugged plastic chip-guards on top of the fork sliders protect the front suspension from flying debris.

 

Aluminum passenger grabrail.

 

Convenient ignition switch/fork lock for added security.

Honda HISS anti-theft ignition.

Review HORNET CB600F

Street Fighter... Bravado

 

"The sleek, compact and lightweight CB600 has won a rapid following in the two years since its introduction for its bare-bones look of spare 'streetfighter' bravado, and the sharp, powerful performance to back it up. Shorn of all but the fundamentals of aggressive sport-riding enjoyment, the CB600 has also grown increasingly popular as a 'one-make' racer that provides big-time excitement and winning track performance at a relatively reasonable cost. Because of this unexpected boom in popularity, the new CB600F receives several improvements to its performance and handling that will see it winning not only the hearts and minds of 'naked sport' bike lovers, but also quite a few races as well. More than any other machine, the CB600F epitomises the definition of the roadster. It does so literally, exulting it to a new realm of excellence. As proof of this, the engine is nothing less than the one in the CBR600F super sports bike and the wheels are those used on the CBR900RR Fireblade. As for the weight to power ratio (95.3PS for 176kg) it is by far the best in its category. If you add to the picture an ultra-compact back-end, a guarantee of the extreme agility demanded by formula racing, an exemplary finish and a superb design emphasising all the Hi-Tech aspects in its construction, we have in the CB600 the most explosive cocktail on the road today. Introduced in 98. Manufactured in Japan."

Review HORNET CB250F

 

Street Fighter...

 

Launched in Japan in 1996 the 250 Hornet was the 'original' Hornet.

It uses the same frame, swingarm, tank, and wheels from the Fireblade as the 600.

 

In 1996 the 250 Hornet revolutionised the naked street fighter market in Japan. The roots of this engine is the 1986 CBR250Four. Its gear driven cams and liquid cooled in-line 4 250cc engine is based on the "Jade 250." (native to the Japanese domestic market only) All this is wrapped up in a pretty impressive and original styling package that pumped up the whole naked street scene and paved the way for the CBR powered 600 version (1998 UK) and eventually the Fireblade powered 900 version (2001 UK).

Aggressive body styling, high level exhaust and of course, that fat 180 back tyre taken straight from the 1992 to 1999 CBR900RR Fireblade, all add up to a tasty machine.

In Japan, it's a favourite with many bikers of all ages.

Difficult to differtial from the bigger Hornets in looks,

Very similar in size. Pwr rated at hp(40hp), but still the same street cred.

Probably the fins on the engine would tell the diff. from the Hornet 600F

Good Handling. Great sprinter.

 

Specs:

 

Engine Liquid-cooled 4-stroke DOHC inline-4

Bore/Stroke 48.5/33.8 mm

Displacement 249cm3

How Does Below $10 sounds for Hornet Logo with

the word "Hornets" on Polo Shirt.

 

Have to make sure hornet don't change colour after

one washing.

 

Any colour in particular... I mean for the shirt.

Suggest White shirt.

Hornet will stand out.

 

:confused: :smile:

 

Will show u sample.

Clearer picture.

Then let me know what all of U think. :thumb:

HI Alan, does S$10 include the polo-t or its addition? Btw ,at army market opp. Golden Mile there also got a few shops doing Embroidery. But not too sure how much.

HI All,

 

Just did a short "tour-de-johor" yesterday morn with a Fellow Biker.

Petrol & makan Run.

2nd link - Tampoi (Fish & Bak-Kut -Teh) - JB (Tp Loh-Duck) - Causeway.

 

Nice to Bum into VerR(Yellow H600) on the way back at Singapore Custom.

He's on a Petrol run.

Advise: Take the Left lane at Custom, Much quicker.

 

:smile:

 

Here are some feedback from ride:

 

Bike Performance

Must say this bike(H900) just goes.

Pwr unlimited & smooth...

Throughly enjoyable.

Especially on Open Highway with no traffic at 2nd link.

 

Now who said this bike is under pwr.

 

Hornet Vs Fazer

 

Was considering a Fazer initially...

Reviews on bike says....

FZ1/6:Tune for High Torque ([email protected]) is more of a race bike.

Hornet is design for low end & mid range torque(110hp/9000rpm).

Great for City Riding & crz on our Expressway in Spore.

 

Pwr comes from stand still all the way up to when U decide u have enough.

 

I have driven a vtec civic, and u have to be in the high range rpm (>3500rpm)

to enjoy the pwr band. Sort of like in a race circuit where engines are at at high rev.

(But the civic has a sport mode selection to pwr up at low rev)

So race bikes like to be driven hard.

Have to check with the Fazer Forums.

 

Used bike Price on the time I check around,

Fazer 1 was $2K more than hornet 9.

 

:smile:

 

Hornet 600 Vs Hornet 900

 

Have not rode the 600, but perf fig are quite close.

Have a look yourself.

 

0-100 km/h & Top Spd

 

Hornet 600 3.96 sec & 243 km/h

Hornet 900 3.7 sec & 225 km/h

Fazer 1000 3.95 &241 km/h

BlackBird 3.5 & 260 km/h

Hayabusa 3.2 & 330 km/h

Posche 911 GT2 4.1 & 315 km/h

Ferrari Maranello 4.2 & 325 km/h

 

(Data Fr: Bike's Magazine UK Road Test March 2004

Torque Mag Spore Oct 2003)

 

There u Have It.

Interesting figures.

The H900 Acce faster but The H600 has a higher Top Spd.

 

Anybody taking the Posche or Ferrari on...

I think a lot depends on rider skill...

 

Maybe our Hornet 600 Guys like to comment. Motrax, VerR, Cb600F...

 

But if U really like the Looks of the Hornet 600, Bktan

Then U should go for It. Get the 600.

But I feel the Hornet Family Looks Pretty Much the Same.

They all Look Good! Right Guys!

 

The Bike Grows into U...

Sort of like a good companion...

 

So what are u waiting for.

 

o_O

 

Price OTR

Hornet 900 $18.5

Hornet 600 $16.5

Hornet 250 $12.5 (quote fr. TSP Patrick 96906989 Defu)

 

:cheeky:

 

Reliability: Std Honda Reliability -

U have a S4 Right.... Ashenz

Should not be much difference.

Maybe the rest of the Hornets care to comment...

 

Exhaust

 

Major Concern when I was considering this bike.

Good News... Pillion & me.

Did not really notice the exhaust Heat at all.

When pillion is was wearing shorts,

Some warm was felt. That's all.

Did not bother us.

Definitely no burnts.

 

That's my experience.

Not sure about 3hr touring.

 

The main heat would be from the engines.

As with all bikes...

 

:thumb:

 

Well...

 

Come chat with Us @ KFC this Friday's Hornet Nest.

I can't Make it due dinner appointment.

But Sure rest of the Hornets will be the to answer your Q.

 

Rgds.

Exhaust

 

Major Concern when I was considering this bike.

Good News... Pillion & me.

Did not really notice the exhaust Heat at all.

When pillion is was wearing shorts,

Some warm was felt. That's all.

Did not bother us.

Definitely no burnts.

 

That's my experience.

Not sure about 3hr touring.

 

The main heat would be from the engines.

As with all bikes...

Review HORNET CB250F

 

Street Fighter...

 

Launched in Japan in 1996 the 250 Hornet was the 'original' Hornet.

It uses the same frame, swingarm, tank, and wheels from the Fireblade as the 600.

 

In 1996 the 250 Hornet revolutionised the naked street fighter market in Japan. The roots of this engine is the 1986 CBR250Four. Its gear driven cams and liquid cooled in-line 4 250cc engine is based on the "Jade 250." (native to the Japanese domestic market only) All this is wrapped up in a pretty impressive and original styling package that pumped up the whole naked street scene and paved the way for the CBR powered 600 version (1998 UK) and eventually the Fireblade powered 900 version (2001 UK).

Aggressive body styling, high level exhaust and of course, that fat 180 back tyre taken straight from the 1992 to 1999 CBR900RR Fireblade, all add up to a tasty machine.

In Japan, it's a favourite with many bikers of all ages.

Difficult to differtial from the bigger Hornets in looks,

Very similar in size. Pwr rated at hp(33hp), but still the same street cred.

Probably the fins on the engine would tell the diff. from the Hornet 600F

Good Handling. Great sprinter.

Aiyooo.. Alan, nobody say about your bike is underpowered, the power is there. We were thinking if the meters on your bike is correct anot. Maybe it could be in Mph not Km/hr. For a 900cc bike, you should be able to hit max 260-280. As your current is at 190km/hr or mph. ( Still a ????? )

But overall the bike is in very well condition and really good buy.

( We are still not too sure if its had powercut on your bike )

 

Because for some X11, the naked version of CBR1100xx, some of them are restrictor to max speed 180km/hr only.

 

But this confirmation thingy, i think we will have to test it over the border. To reconfirm the above topic.

 

Alan just a chitchat and tok kok only, pls dont get offended hor. :)

Chit Chat Is Good.

Anyway, don't intend to go beyond my speedo.

Have Family to think off.

Hornet 919 Review

2004 Honda Redbook

 

 

Talk about naked aggression: Stripped to its shirt-sleeves, the 919 combines aggressive looks with open-class muscle in a lightweight package that also offers all-around comfort and amazing versatility.

 

 

Features & Benefits

 

43mm front fork with preload and compression damping adjustments.

 

Instrumentation includes a clock, digital odometer with two tripmeters, black face analog speedometer, tachmeter, water temperature with white numerals, indicator lights for neutral, FI (fuel injection), oil pressure, low fuel and high beam.

 

Unique Features

 

 

Muscular 919cc open-class engine-inspired by the legendary CBR®900RR--pounds out impressive torque and surprising top-end horsepower.

 

A feathery, 194kg weight makes the 919 the lightest bike in its class.

 

The comfortable, upright seating position is ideal for commuting, sport riding and long trips.

 

Honda's latest programmed fuel injection (PGM-FI) and electronic digital ignition maximize power output and offer immediate throttle response.

 

Stylish, dual center-up exhausts exit below the rear cowl.

 

Massive square-tube mono-backbone frame and a large aluminum swingarm combine to provide an ideal balance of rigidity and flexibility for superb road feel.

 

43mm cartridge front fork, single-shock rear suspension and lightweight cast aluminum three-spoke wheels contribute to exceptional handling.

Engine/Drivetrain

 

 

 

Compact 919cc DOHC liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder engine is tuned for low-end and mid-range power for spirited acceleration.

 

One-piece upper crankcase/cylinder assembly, right-side cam-drive design and a narrow, 32 degree included valve angle help make the 919 engine the lightest, most compact powerplant in its class.

 

Sixteen-valve cylinder head with a 10.8:1 compression ratio promotes efficient combustion and high horsepower production.

 

Direct shim-under-bucket valve actuation system is compact, ensures high-rpm durability and allows 16,000-mile valve maintenance intervals.

 

High-pressure programmed fuel injection (PGM-FI) delivers fuel at 50 psi to four injectors, each mounted in a 36mm throttle body. Fuel is delivered through four laser-drilled nozzle holes in each injector, producing a highly atomized air/fuel charge for maximum combustion efficiency and power.

 

Advanced programmed fuel injection (PGM-FI) features a sophisticated throttle sensor and advanced fuel-injection mapping to produce smooth and linear throttle response, responding precisely to fine throttle adjustments.

 

16-bit electronic control unit (ECU) provides two digital 3-D fuel injection maps for each cylinder and one digital 3-D ignition map for cylinder pairs, creating ideal fuel mixture and spark advance settings for superb rideability.

 

Liquid-cooled oil cooler and a lightweight aluminum radiator keep engine temperatures in check for consistent performance and long engine life.

 

Spring-loaded scissors-type gear on the drive side of the crankshaft and a rubber-mounted, floating clutch-cover help reduce noise.

 

Weight-saving features include a compact, lightweight one-piece alternator.

 

Unique four-into-two-into-one-into-two exhaust design features expanding-diameter tubing leading into the two center-up mufflers, contributing to strong mid-range torque and an exhilarating exhaust note. Stainless steel exhaust header and main pipe are attractive and corrosion-resistant. Polished stainless steel muffler-covers shield passenger's legs from muffler heat.

 

 

High-capacity, 380-watt AC generator.

 

Maintenance-free automatic cam-chain tensioner.

 

Smooth-shifting six-speed transmission with gear ratios carefully matched to the engine's powerband.

 

Durable #530 O-ring-sealed drive chain.

Chassis/Suspension

 

 

Massive square-tube mono-backbone steel frame utilizes the engine as a stressed frame member. Together with the reinforced steering head, the chassis provides an optimal balance of rigidity and tuned flex for superb handling.

 

A single box-section downtube reaches down to a unique front engine-mount that incorporates a cross-member to link the frame to the engine's solid front mounts.

 

Lightweight aluminum swingarm features a large one-piece cast pivot block and extruded triple-box-section spars.

 

43mm cartridge front fork with adjustable preload with compression damping and 4.7 inches of travel offers unparalleled rigidity for precise action and excellent handling on a variety of road surfaces.

 

Lightweight aluminum upper triple-clamp adds rigidity for even better steering control.

 

Single-shock rear suspension features a high-quality damper with seven-position-adjustable spring preload, 5.0 inches of plush wheel travel and a remote fluid-reservoir for added suspension control in all riding conditions.

 

Braking system features two huge, 296mm front discs with four-piston calipers and a 240mm rear disc with a single-piston caliper for exceptional stopping power.

 

Aluminum-alloy super-light, hollow three-spoke wheels with 3.5 x 17-inch front and 5.5 x 17-inch rear dimensions.

Additional Features

 

 

Wide, durable vinyl-covered seat with thick foam padding provides plush comfort for commuting and two-up day trips.

 

A stylish hugger-type rear fender closely follows the curve of the rear tire.

 

Instrumentation includes a clock, digital odometer with two tripmeters, black face analog speedometer, tachmeter, water temperature with white numerals, indicator lights for neutral, FI (fuel injection), oil pressure, low fuel and high beam.

 

19litre/268km range fuel tank is hinged for servicing ease.

Reserve Lite with 4litre remains. gives 50 km ride to Jb for top up.

 

Aviation-style fuel cap.

 

Engine-mounted manual fuel enricher provides smooth idling speed for cold engine starts.

 

A bank-angle sensor shuts off fuel supply to the PGM-FI system if the motorcycle tips over, but is unaffected by bumps and vibration during normal operation.

 

A large multi-reflector headlight with a twin-filament H4 low/high beam provides superb roadway illumination.

 

Maintenance-free battery is lightweight with sufficient starting capacity for all riding seasons.

 

Rugged plastic chip-guards on top of the fork sliders protect the front suspension from flying debris.

 

Aluminum passenger grabrail.

 

Convenient ignition switch/fork lock for added security.

Honda HISS anti-theft ignition.

Key has to be cut & coded.

Bike cannot be started by connecting Ignition.
