Honda CB750 Hornet (2023 onwards)

The 2023 Honda CB750 Hornet is a budget-friendly middleweight naked bike that looks good, feels great on the road and is a lot of fun to ride. It is less expensive than its biggest competitor, the Yamaha MT-07, but also more powerful.

The motorcycle feels lightweight and compact. Its parallel-twin cylinder engine has an even spread of power, which makes the bike extremely responsive and super-easy to handle. And, thanks to its modern features like ABS and quickshifter, the Honda CB750 Hornet is an ideal option for beginner riders.

The build quality is excellent and the bike offers a very good value for money. Unfortunately, the steering can sometimes be overly sensitive, which is the only small downside of the bike.

The Honda CB750 Hornet is a 755cc A2-friendly bike. It has a power output of 68 kW (91 bhp), which exceeds the 35 kW (47 bhp) limit needed for an A2 licence. The bike has to be restricted by at least 48.5% to become A2 licence compliant.

You will need a restrictor to ride the Honda CB750 Hornet on an A2 motorbike licence. See the restrictor kits section to check out what restrictors are available for the Honda CB750 Hornet.
