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.

User Reviews of Comparison

  • Honda Hornet 2.0
  • TVS Apache RTR 180
  • Best bike for city commute.Lightweight (142kgs) makes handling very easy.Smooth refined engine trademark honda.This looks like a beast and is easily one of the best looking bikes in the parking lot.110/70 & 140/70 tyres looks awesome and gives really good balance and stability.Brakes are really good, You can almost completely depend on the front brakes.Mileage of 40 around.Smooth gear shifts.And excellent torquelow and mid range performance is best in the class.You tend to feel the absence of a 6th gear but that's ok unless you are buying this bike to race on a daily basis.Initial issues described here like engine heating and noise from rear brakes (just clean the disk) and all are eliminated after 1st service.Some bikes may tend to have a lockset issue, Which again resolves in a month or so on its own or then a new lockset can be installed.I would definitely recommend for a smooth makkhan experience and a pleasurable riding.

  • I am really satisfied with these bike all I want is few upgrades in these bike for example USD Suspension, Mono Sock, wide Swing Arm, Rare tyre atleast 130, and at last 6th gear may be not for direct selling but a choice for upgrades which will make a bike looks more muscular and safe for top speed ridder since 180 has no upgrade since 2012 in looks. So There fore I hope and pray that TVS will be kind enought to note down my demands Thank You Lots of love From Kanu Kalai From Tripura

  • Very light and full control in riding. Instant pick up make it more reliable. If someone use it single hand then you never loss its feel alike JUST NEWI am using it since Oct 2015. From my point of view, a customer who buy it I suggest you that when you buy it you ride it full speed and long run with two persons in order to make it more efficient for future (please ensure traffic rule and own safety). And light service every two months on 1000kmWith regards Vijay Kumar Nain

  • 121 km /h is top speed i gained but i am sure that 135/hour can gain for suitable road.Safest bike i ever experienced.Stability & less vibration are the main attraction.Cornering is really heartfelt & also assure co driver comfort.Pls do service between regular intervals & use lub only for chain sprocket.Dont allow to wet.Keep neet & clean always.Karma returns.

  • I was thinking to buy this because this bike has dual-channel abs and this bike has a very good fuel capacity and good average also.The bike looks very stylish and what a biker wants is all there in this bike.Mainly this bike has a comfortable seat.The headlights of this bike are really good.But timely maintenance of the bike is always required.

    Hemant Kumar1 few weeks ago
  • Look my way of riding may not be a biker type. I generally ride pretty safe and till now my highest speed is 98kmph for 3 secs. But for my daily commute I found this bike pretty useful. Though after 5 years I am having an issue with my brakes. Loosing confidence on them.
