The CB900F Hornet is a fairly basic uncomplicated machine. It does what it does, and it does it well. It offers no frills, reliable transport in a big-bike package.

One of the fundamental ideas behind the Hornet 900 was to tailor the bike more toward those who enjoy city riding rather than all-out assaults on inter-city highways and winding backroads.

Honda calculated that riders seem to be the most comfortable with a power output range of between 90 and 110PS (or 66 to 81kW), especially for a smaller and lighter machine like that envisioned by the Hornet's development team. More important than maximum power output is a strong feeling of torque and acceleration almost the instant the throttle is opened.

Another primary goal in the development of the Hornet was achieving smooth, reassuring rideability, with instantly responsive yet linear torque output, which required fine-tuning its throttle response. Therefore, Honda's PGM-FI fuel injection system was selected and modified to deliver strong yet smooth power delivery.

Of course, the Hornet's chassis is largely based on the same Mono-Backbone frame configuration used in the Hornet and Hornet-S, but strengthened in line with its engine's higher power output.
