Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India launched the Honda Hornet 2.0 in India today. The 180-200 cc motorcycle segment is doing well in India and this motorcycle may prove to be a good opportunity for Honda to bolster its sales. The Honda Hornet 2.0 is priced at ₹ 126,345 (ex-showroom, Gurugram) and for a 180 cc motorcycle, we believe it is steeply priced. The Hornet 2.0 gets a 184 cc engine which is fuel-injected and makes 17 bhp at 8,500 rpm along with 16.1 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm. The engine is paired to a 5-speed gearbox.
