The most recent version of the Hornet 2.0 has been launched by Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI). The Naked Streetfighter bike will run on E20 fuel starting in 2023, and it is now OBD2 compliant. The ex-showroom pricing has increased to Rs 1.39 lakh as a result of the latest changes. An assist slipper clutch has been added to the 2023 Hornet 2.0. Notably, multiple sensors are now used by the engine unit to keep tabs on parts that could impact the bike's ability to emit pollutants. A warning light will turn on the instrument panel in the instance of a failure. A first for the sub-200cc bike market, the Hornet 2.0 also features an upside-down (USD) front fork. For the new Hornet 2.0, the bikemaker is also providing a special 10-year warranty package. This contains both a seven-year optional warranty and a three-year standard warranty.

Commenting on the launch, Tsutsumu Otani, Managing Director, President and CEO, of Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India, said, “In line with the government’s regulations, HMSI has been aggressively working on upgrading its product line-up to comply with the latest norms. Today marks a significant milestone as we launch the OBD2-compliant 2023 Hornet 2.0. Since its launch in 2020, the Hornet 2.0 has received a tremendous response and we are confident that it will further bolster its position in the market.”
