Say Hello to the new HondaHornet 2.0. It’s the larger displacement and better equipped successor to the now-discontinued CB Hornet 160R, but the overall platform is essentially the tweaked version of the CB190R sold overseas. For Honda, the version 2.0 serves two purposes. Firstly, it fills the wide displacement gap between Honda’s 160cc offerings and the CB300R. At the same time, it caters to the customers who wish to opt for something tad more premium than the X-Blade.
It took quite long for Honda to arrange for a media test unit of the Hornet 2.0. Nevertheless, we finally got to spend some time with the bike and rode it in the city, on the highway, and also carved some twisties around the mountains, only to bring you a detailed review of the motorcycle.
