Honda Hornet meets CBR600

By 4th April 2011 Honda, On the Dyno, Race Bikes

Another very tidy Honda Hornet… from  the same gang of mates that race and track day ’em as the last one we did (both came to the workshop independently of each other; there seems to be a little healthy competition there). Anyway this one had a very noisy motor and is pictured here just before removal of the old mill and insertion of a fettled CBR600 engine. The bike left BSD with horsepower well in the mid-nineties and two options for jetting; as is, and for CBR airbox spec that’ll put peak power up over 100bhp.

This Hornet drew many admiring glances while it was on the bench; note Brembo master cylinder...
