The Honda Hornet 2.0’s launch just a few days ago marked the Japanese manufacturer’s foray into the 160-200cc space in India. To see how it stacks up against its closest competition, we pit it against two of the most powerful 160cc motorcycles in our market and two popular, very similarly priced 200cc options.
The Hero Xtreme 200R also sits rather close to the Hornet 2.0 in terms of specifications, but its BS6-compliant iteration is yet to be revealed. This is why we haven’t taken the Xtreme 200R into consideration in this comparison.
How does the Hornet 2.0 compare on engines and power?
