Honda’s New Hornet 2.0 Decoded In Images

This 184cc motorcycle replaces the Honda CB Hornet 160R

Hornet launch zig

Honda has launched the Hornet 2.0, its first made-in-India motorcycle in the 180-200cc segment. Here’s every aspect of this newest streetfighter decoded in detailed images:

The overall design of the Honda Hornet 2.0 looks a lot more masculine than the CB Hornet 160R.

Hornet tank zig

The beefy fuel tank extensions are neatly designed. The bike also gets a tank-mounted key slot for a sporty appeal.

LED All Around

The all-LED lighting system, which is a first for a made-in-India Honda, looks quite sleek and premium. The indicators are similar to the ones on the CB 300R.

Hornet console zig

It sports a fully digital instrument cluster that comes with adjustable brightness. The console shows the gear position as well as the battery voltage reading, apart from the regular run-of-the-mill information.

Hornet seat zig

The split seat on the Hornet 2.0 goes well with its sporty demeanour. Its predecessor featured a single-piece seat.

Hornet engine zig

The Hornet 2.0 packs an all-new 184cc air-cooled engine, which produces 17.2PS at 8500rpm and 16.1Nm at 6000rpm. While we were expecting a 6-speed transmission, the motorcycle makes do with a 5-speed unit.

Hornet front suspension zig

Another big talking point is the inverted front fork. It looks properly premium thanks to the gold finish. This is a first for a small-capacity Honda motorcycle made here. The rear uses a monoshock that is adjustable for preload.

Hornet front wheel zig

Braking is via petal discs on both ends, measuring 276mm up front and 220mm at the rear. Honda has offered only a single-channel ABS as standard.

Hornet tyres zig

The Hornet 2.0 gets a slightly meatier front tyre than its predecessor. It rolls on 110-section front and 140-section rubber at the rear. Sadly, there’s no radial tyre.
