Honda teases its upcoming Hornet 2.0-based adventure tourer
Honda is gearing up to announce a new adventure bike in India on August 19. In the run-up to the launch event, the automaker has released yet another teaser for the Hornet 2.0-based motorcycle, revealing a few more design features. It will come with a tall handlebar, split seats, a raised windscreen, and a 2-piece pillion grab rail. Here are more details.
The Honda adventure bike will likely feature an aggressive look with a muscular fuel tank, a semi-faired design, a split-style seat, a pillion grab rail, and an upswept exhaust. It will also house a tinted windscreen, an LED headlamp, and blacked-out knuckle guards with integrated turn indicators. The two-wheeler is also expected to ride on 17-inch alloy wheels.
The upcoming Honda bike will be fueled by a 184.4cc, single-cylinder, engine that makes 17.03hp of power and 16.1Nm of torque in the Hornet 2.0. The motor will be linked to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
For the rider's safety, the Honda adventure motorcycle will likely be equipped with disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels, along with single-channel ABS for improved handling on the roads. Suspension duties on the bike should be taken care of by inverted forks on the front side and a mono-shock unit on the rear end.
The official pricing and availability details of the Honda Hornet 2.0-based adventure bike will be announced at the time of its launch on August 19. For reference, the Hornet 2.0 starts at Rs. 1.31 lakh (ex-showroom) in India.
