Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Hornet 2.0

Q. I'm confused between, Hornet 2.0 and Dominar 250?
  • Selecting between the Bajaj Dominar 250 and the Hornet 2.0 would depend on your budget, preference of the segment and usage of the bike. With a frugal engine, agreeable ergos, light handling and a comfortable ride, the Hornet makes for a great city bike. If you’re currently riding a 125cc bike and looking for something with more performance to make your commute that much more interesting, but you don’t necessarily want something very sporty with ‘racing DNA’, the Hornet offers a sensible and easy motorcycling experience. If we talk about Dominar 250, apart from its accessible price tag, the Dominar 250 does one thing right -- it is fit to purpose. The 250cc motor may feel boring on the KTM, but it works beautifully on the Dominar especially when you combine it with its comfortable touring ergonomics. The seating stance is nearly upright with only a slight forward slant, the 800mm seat height makes for an easy reach, the wide handlebars are set fairly high and even the footpegs aren’t too rear set, making for a comfortable riding position. 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 the dealership.
Q. CB 200X or Hornet 2.0?
  • Selecting between the Honda CB200X and the Hornet 2.0 would depend on your budget, preference of the segment and usage of the bike. The Honda CB200X looks properly buff, compared to the Hornet 2.0, thanks to its ADV-like fairing with a fairing-mounted LED headlamp, tinted windshield, and knuckle guards with integrated LED indicators. Apart from the bodywork, ergonomics, and tyres, the rest of the motorcycle is pretty much the same as the Hornet 2.0. This includes the powertrain, suspension, brakes, and alloy wheels. All in all, asking for a Rs 13,000-odd premium over the Hornet 2.0 feels a little too much considering you don’t get a lot for the extra money. You’re better off buying the Hornet, or if you’re looking for a proper motorcycle to tackle the terrain, the Hero XPulse 200 is a much better, capable, feature-packed option, that too at a considerably lower price point. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.

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.

  • Obviously Mt15 it has more power and torque ,handling is great ,design depends on your choice, both are reliable japanese motorcycle but you will feel lack of power and torque on hornet
  • Hornet 2.0
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. 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.
