 Honda CB750 Hornet Officially Revealed, Check Out the Specifications

Honda officially revealed the latest CB750 Hornet. This mid-range naked model is claimed to have a class-leading power-to-weight ratio. Although not as radical as the design sketches and scattered teasers, the new Hornet is still sharp and modern in terms of style. The unit was listed at Intermot 2022 in Cologne, Germany and was exhibited in concept status, nothing more.

The CB750 Hornet was designed by Honda's R&D team in Rome. This unit takes elements from the Hornet model that once triumphed in the era of the 90s. The design of the fuel tank is inspired by the shape of the wasp wings. Although the initial concept and sketches are more similar to the KTM Duke, the effect looks calm in the finished product.

As previously revealed, the new Hornet is powered by a 755 cc Parallel-Twin 8-valve Unicam engine. It has a 270-degree combustion sequence and the resulting sound character mimics the V-Twin engine. The manufacturer claims a peak output of 90.5 hp at 9,500 rpm. That figure is equivalent to the power of the CB650R Inline-Four. But the CB750 Hornet comes in at a lighter weight, about 26 pounds (11.7 kg). The claimed wet weight is 419 pounds (190 kg). While the peak torque is 75 Nm at 7,250 rpm.

The engine is combined with an assist and slipper clutch and a six-speed manual transmission. The CB750's Throttle-by-Wire system offers three driving modes (plus a user custom mode), a three-level traction control system, wheelie control and engine braking control. To help reduce weight, the prime mover also serves as a balance shaft.

The chassis wears an all-new steel diamond model designed to provide optimum rigidity while contributing to a relatively light weight. The front wheels are suspended by a 41 mm Showa SFF-BP inverted fork that offers a 5.1-inch main range. The rear wheels are attached to the Pro-Link's swingarm with an adjustable monoshock and provide 5.9-inch travel.

The front wheels feature a 296 mm dual disc clamped by Nissin radial-mounted four-piston calipers. While the task of braking the rear wheels is handled by a single-piston caliper with a disk of 240 mm.

Two-channel ABS comes as standard, just like the Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) function. When traveling at speeds above 35 mph (40 km/h), the ESS turns on taillights that warn other road users of sudden stops.

The cockpit section has a full-color 5-inch TFT display instrument panel. It offers a choice of four display types. There are speedometers and tachometers, fuel gauges, gear indicators and other data related to electronics.

Hornet is also equipped with a Honda Smartphone Voice Control system to enable voice management of phone calls, messages, music and navigation. The system works with a headset mounted on the helmet and is connected via Bluetooth with Android and iOS phones.

Other features include a USB type-C port, a seat height of 31.3 inches (840 mm), and an automatic turn signal. Honda also offers a number of accessories that can be purchased a la carte, or in three packages. The Sport Pack includes a quickshifter, fly screen, rear seat cover and an upgraded footrest. The Style Pack has an end bar, handlebar top clamp, tank bearings, wheel stripes, and impact protection. The Touring package adds a pannier, a tank bag, and a chair bag.

The 2023 Honda CB750 Hornet comes in four color options. Pearl Glare White and Graphite Black come with a Metallic Red Flame frame and a matching anodized red fork. Matte Iridium Grey Metallic and Mat Goldfinch Yellow options use a black frame and chrome fork tubes.

Unfortunately, the Hornet has only been confirmed for Europe so far. For the price it is said to vary by country. But generally it is around US$ 7,800 (Rp120 million).
