Recently Asked User Questions

Q. I am planning to buy Hornet 2.0 or Yamaha MT-15 could you suggest which bike is better in terms of both performance and mileage?
  • As per your requirements, we would suggest you to go with the Honda Hornet 2.0. With a frugal engine, agreeable ergos, light handling, and a comfortable ride, the Hornet makes for a great city bike. On the upside, when you cruise at an economical speed, the motor gingerly sips from the 12-litre fuel tank to return 55.11kmpl. It gets even better in the city, with a very respectable mileage figure of 57.35kmpl. The 184cc single-cylinder air-cooled mill on the Hornet 2.0 is the largest that Honda makes in India. It produces 17.27PS at 8,500rpm and 16.1Nm at 6,000rpm. Honda claims it has a healthy mid-range performance. Moreover, we would suggest you take a test ride for a better understanding of performance and comfort. Click on the link and select your desired city for dealership details.
Q. Between Unicorn 160 and Avenger 160, which one is good?
  • Selecting between the Honda Unicorn and Bajaj Avenger Street 160 would depend on certain factors such as preference of the segment, budget, features required and usage of the bike. If you are looking for a daily commuter with a much refined engine and old-school styling then you may opt for the Unicorn. Honda Unicorn has always been the go-to bike if you were planning to buy a 160cc commuter. On the other hand, if you are looking for a comfortable mile muncher and an affordable cruiser, then the Avenger Street 160 would be a better pick. For a better understanding of compatibility and riding comfort, we would suggest you to take a test ride. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership.

Q. I am confused between Honda Hornet 2.0 & Honda Unicorn 160. I live in Mumbai and I commute daily up to 60 kms on rough roads, busy traffic and highway. My priorities are good ride quality & suspension for comfortable journey for both rider and pillion(because of back pain), low maintenance cost and good mileage.Which one should I go for?
  • As per your requirements, we'd suggest you to go with the Honda Unicorn if you do not mind the old-school styling and lack of modern elements. The Unicorn is powered by a tried and tested fuel efficient engine, gets lots of ground clearance and a longer seat for improved comfort for both rider and the pillion. The BS6 update has given the bike a larger motor, while retaining the dynamics of the older bike. It still remains a well-rounded motorcycle, but the BS6 update has come with a hefty price hike. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride for a better understanding of comfort and compatibility. You may click on the link and select your desired city for dealership details.Read More: - What Has Honda Changed On The New Unicorn BS6?
