The CB750 Hornet is Honda’s most recent middleweight contender. This motorcycle is powered by a new 755cc liquid-cooled parallel-twin engine that generates 92 horsepower at 9,500 rpm and 74.4 Newton-meters (Nm) at 7,000 rpm. The motorcycle has a lot of electronic features to help the rider, such as four rider modes, traction control, wheelie control, engine brake control, and bi-directional rapid shifting, which can be turned on or off.
What you get?
The new 755 cc parallel-twin engine uses a 279-degree firing order to replicate the sound of a V-Twin engine, similar to the majority of modern parallel twins available on the market today. This engine is connected to a six-speed transmission with a slip/assist clutch and a quickshifter that can be used in either direction.
This new engine is enclosed by a steel diamond frame supported by a 41-mm Showa SFF-BP and a Pro-Link monoshock. When its 15.2-liter fuel tank is full, the CB750 Hornet weighs 190 kg and has a seat height of 795 mm. Nissin makes the braking system, which has a pair of radially mounted four-piston callipers clamping down on dual 296mm discs and a single-piston calliper clamping down on a 240mm disc at the back.

The CB750’s five-inch, full-color TFT display controls a broad array of electronic rider assistance features. The CB750 sports a ride-by-wire throttle and four power modes: Sport, Standard, Rain, and User (fully customizable).
There are three non-customizable, integrated levels of traction control and wheelie control. Adjustable engine braking and engine power modes and an optional bi-directional quick-shifter complete the technical aids. Bluetooth connectivity for the TFT display and Honda Smartphone Voice Control are also included.
