What happened to the Hornet CB 300?
The darling of the audience with 20 years of history is no longer the same. Since its launch here, the motorcycle with a plump and sloping rear, imitating a wasp (hence the name Hornet) has been losing ground.
Gradually, the automaker Honda was taking the Hornet CB 300 out of circulation, which makes it evident that we will not have a 2021 version.
However, Honda decided to launch a successor, called CB 650F, with an aesthetic look similar to the legendary Hornet and in striking colors: orange and red.
The new version brings modernity and comfort to the longing Hornet fans, although there are those who turn their nose at the Honda model. You can’t please everyone, can you?
