Features include golden upside down (USD) front fork, digital negative LCD meter and a new engine tuned for mid-range torque
Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt Ltd have launched the Hornet 2.0 with a new engine and feature pack at Rs 126,345 (ex-showroom Gurugram). The new 184cc BS 6 compliant PGM-FI engine offers more performance with enhanced mid-range torque delivery to make it more tractile. Smooth power delivery is ensured with a roller rocker arm which helps in the reduction of friction losses. The new engine also comes equipped with a piston cooling jet that acts as heat absorbent hence improving engine thermal efficiency and giving better fuel efficiency. Hornet 2.0 is equipped with Petal Disc Brakes with single-channel ABS for safety, and a mono-shock at the rear for improved riding experience. Handling and traction are improved by the golden upside down (USD) front fork.
Engine Stop Switch provides the convenience of turning off the engine on brief stops with a flick of a switch. Ensuring the safety of riders in low visibility conditions is the Hazard Switch feature. Wider tubeless tyres at the front (110mm) and rear (140mm) provide sturdy road grip and aids handling. The new fully digital negative liquid crystal gauge displays information like gear position, service due reminder, battery voltmeter and comes with customisable brightness (can be adjusted manually up to 5 levels). Atsushi Ogata, Managing Director, President & CEO, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt Ltd mentions “Inspired by the dreams of the new age customers & their passion for riding, we are pleased to introduce all-new Honda Hornet 2.0. With its advanced technology and thrilling performance, new Hornet 2.0 is set to create a new benchmark among the young motorcycle enthusiasts. It is the beginning of Honda’s new era of portfolio expansion catering to a wide range of customers in India”.
