Empowering Performance through Technology

Beneath the skin of the Hornet 2.0 lies a robust heart – a 184.40cc, 4-stroke, single-cylinder BSVI OBD2 compliant PGM-FI engine. This technological marvel doesn’t just adhere to environmental norms; it elevates the riding experience through precision and intelligence.

Equipped with multiple sensors, this engine monitors emission performance with finesse, even notifying riders of any detected malfunctions via an instrument panel warning light. The 184.40cc engine generates a staggering 12.70 kW of power and 15.9 Nm of peak torque.

An exquisite touch of innovation comes in the form of the assist and slipper clutch – a feature designed to deliver smoother upshifts and prevent rear wheel lock-ups during hard downshifts. This advancement in safety seamlessly blends into the thrill of the ride.

The Hornet 2.0’s handling is further augmented by the Golden Up-side Down (USD) front fork, an unprecedented feature in the sub-200cc segment. Its superior technology harmoniously marries with its visual appeal, enhancing the motorcycle’s agility and control.

When it comes to halting the excitement, the Hornet 2.0 employs dual petal disc brakes with single-channel ABS, offering confidence and stability. A mono-shock rear suspension preserves equilibrium during cornering, delivering a smooth and exhilarating ride.
