The new CB Hornet 2.0 from Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. replaces its predecessor, 160R, one of the bestselling models of the company. However, it retains 160R’s design language with cleaner lines that give it a striking look. The Hornet brand is well known for its style and performance. The sleek LED headlamp, tail lamp, indicators and fuel tank extension further enhance the style factor. One of the features that Honda has introduced for the very first time is the adjustable brightness of the console screen.

Honda CB Hornet Insurance: FAQs

Q1: Motorcycle premium – how is it calculated?

The IRDA fixes the third-party insurance premium for a two-wheeler on the basis of its engine capacity. However, the premiums for comprehensive and own-damage policies vary by the insurance provider and depend on factors such as make/model/variant, fuel type, engine capacity, RTO, and city of registration.

Q2: The damage caused to my CB Hornet bike is not much. What benefit can I get if I don’t file a claim?

If you don’t prefer a claim, you will be eligible for a discount on your renewal premium as a no-claims bonus.

Q3: Should I buy or renew CB Hornet's own-damage policy from the existing insurer?

No. You are not required to buy or renew your CB Hornet’s OD policy from the existing insurer. However, you have to ensure that your bike has a third-party cover before buying your own-damage policy.

Q4: How can I know that a specific policy offered by an insurance company is appropriate and the best for my two-wheeler?

The greatest advantage of working with Quickinsure is that you can compare the quotes, features, and discounts offered by different providers on a single platform. You can then choose the most suited policy for your bike and matches your requirements.
