Honda Hornet 2.0 specs, features
The Honda Hornet 2.0 boasts a 184cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled, 2-valve engine. This engine produces 17.03PS of power and 16.1Nm. The power is up while the torque is down from the Euro4 model sold elsewhere. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. There are no claimed mileage numbers but Honda has put in a weird thing wherein they say that the 0-200 metre distance is done in less than 11.22 seconds. Expect a top speed of 105kmph from this powertrain.
As far as features are concerned, the bike looks very much the same as the older motorcycle. If not a bit lithe. There are all-LED lights including the winkers. A negative LCD display has been provided that gives info like the battery status. Unfortunately no Bluetooth or connectivity options are available. There are golden USD forks in the front and a pre-load adjustable monoshock at the rear. Petal discs have been provided in the front and rear, however ABS is only single-channel.
Honda has also dialled in a hazard switch to the equation and the Hornet 2.0 also gets an engine kill button. The usual warranty of three years is being given while buyers can also opt for an additional three.
