Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Hornet 2.0

Q. I am planning to buy a bike next month. I am confused between Apache rtr 160 4v, Hornet 2.0, Honda Unicorn and FZ/S-Fi V3,. Which one should I buy if my priorities are low maintenance cost, good mileage and good riding quality (comfort and handling). I will be commuting to office daily with frequent rides to native village which has bumpy/rural roads with this.
  • I have a similar requirement as yours (in the question), and have test-ridden hero Xtreme 160R, as well; along with the options mentioned above, this is what I noted. With the reviews and verdicts from almost every major auto channel, it was an obvious run. To my surprise, I couldn't find the 'sporty' (rear set foot-pegs) on the Apache RTR 160 4v as comfortable as other bikes - however, TVS's offering was the best in the segment, before the BS6 norms pushed in, due to lower kerb weight and the power figures. The ride quality and handling are superb, plus a decent fuel economy is a pro.Given that I found the ride a bit too tiring for my wrists, and a Honda showroom was next in line, I drove the Hornet 2.0. You hop on to its saddle, and you feel a certain correction in the posture - an upright, wide handlebar setting, with mildly rear-set footpegs, make you stay easy, even at higher speeds - the suspension setup is on the firm side though - the higher cost and the lower fuel economy are the only cons that I could measure at the moment.Next, Hero extreme 160R was a similar offering, just with a refined but slightly weaker engine than the Hornet 2.0 - you miss the pull from the engine to go up and rev it higher - the bike is nimble and a very capable handler of bad roads too. Fuel economy is quite similar to TVS's just the braking improves with the lower weight figures.For the final option, I went in to drive the FZ-S V3 - It was a DELIGHT - you sit even more so relaxed than on any of the previous bikes, and the ride quality is plush! Given that I was riding it right after the previous two, the motor felt far too refined for even the Hornet to match. Better economy and festive deals made it a better choice for me - given the quality, comfort being better than what I had tested and the cost was considerably lower than the other options.The only question that I have in mind is 'How long is the FZ going to continue in India?'; given that spare parts vanish out of Indian markets, as soon as the bike is discontinued.In my opinion, if you prefer an easy-riding style and economy and comfort are a priority, go with Yamaha's 'Lord of The Streets'. Hornet 2.0 also makes a better option if the budget allows, too.

  • All these bikes are good enough and easy for pocket to maintain. The TVS Apache RTR 160 4V has been the benchmark when it comes to 160cc motorcycles. With the BS6-compliant iteration, TVS has made sure it is still as sprightly as ever despite the slight drop in power and torque figures. The overall package and reasonable pricing make it a truly value for money motorcycle in its segment. In nearly every aspect, except maybe ergonomics and braking, the Yamaha FZS-FI v3.0 fails to impress. While its motor offers better fuel efficiency compared to the previous-gen model, it lacks grunt. If you have around Rs 1 lakh to invest, you're better off with other options. if you are looking for better power performance, build quality, good features and a more stable bike, you may go for Hornet 2.0. It is comfortable enough and gets a refined and smooth engine too. If we talk about Honda Unicorn, it has always been the go-to bike if you were planning to buy a 150cc commuter. 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.You may compare all these bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity.

Q. Which is better among Yamaha MT 15 and Honda Hornet 2.0?
  • Selecting between the Yamaha MT 15 and Honda Hornet would depend on certain factors such as budget, preference of the segment, features required, preference of the performance and usage of the bike. If you are looking for a 180cc bike with linear power delivery, healthy mid-range torque, comfortable riding position and a refined engine, the Honda Hornet 2.0 would be a better option. On the other hand, if you are powerful 155cc bike with outright performance, compact design, great agility and brilliant looks then you may opt for the Yamaha MT 15. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride for a better understanding of comfort and compatibility.

Q. Which one to go for Hornet 2.0, Apache RTR 200 4v or Gixxer 250 or wait for Honda CBF 190?
  • The TVS Apache RTR 200 4V has been one of the nicest 200cc motorcycles in India. It is sharp and agile while maintaining a friendly power delivery. The lack of a sixth gear though limits its touring potential. If we talk about Suzuki Gixxer 250, it is comfortable in the city and on the highway to, it has big bike looks and a decent amount of features. However, its brakes could be better and headlight intensity is a little below average. Honda Hornet 2.0 isn't a 200cc bike as per its specifications 184cc engine producing 17.23PS at 8500rpm and 16.1Nm at 6000rpm. If outright performance is not your priority and looking for a comfortable bike for city commutes and want a refined and smooth engine, you may go for Honda Hornet 2.0. Hornet 2.0 is the bike based on Honda CBF 190(international), so we don't see any chance that the brand will sell same bike with two different names in India. You may compare all these bikes accordingly. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.

Q. WHICH IS BETTER YAMAHA MT15, HORNET OR GIXXER IN 155 TO 160 CC?
  • Among the lot, we would suggest you to opt for the Suzuki Gixxer as in the 150cc streetfighter segment, the Gixxer continues to provide one of the best all-round packages in this class, coming very close to the Apache RTR 160 4V. It features a muscular design and has brilliant handling characteristics. On the other hand, the Yamaha MT 15 looks sharp, is light, and can be a hoot to commute. A powerful 155cc engine combined with its lightweight and compact design makes it a great two-wheeler. However, the compact riding posture might be a bit too tight for large riders.
