Engine & Technology

According to HMSI, the Hornet 2.0 gets an all-new engine, and not a bored out version of the Honda CB Hornet 160 as some of us thought. The 184.4 cc engine puts out 17 bhp at 8,500 rpm and 16.1 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm and is paired to a 5-speed gearbox. The engine gets Honda's programmed fuel injection with 8 on-board sensors which constantly inject optimum fuel and air mixture for better efficiency and performance. A roller rocker arm is said to reduce friction losses, and a piston cooling jet improves engine thermal efficiency; in layperson terms, it helps the engine run cool and improve efficiency.
