Until a few years back, Honda had as many as four products on sale in the 150-160cc space – the Unicorn, the Unicorn 160, X-Blade and the CB Hornet 160R. The Unicorn 160 never really garnered the right market sentiment forcing Honda to eventually pull the plug on it. That leaves the Unicorn and X-Blade to play in the 160cc space with the latter securing the ‘premium’ category. All of this allowed Honda to position the new Hornet 2.0 with a 184.4cc engine, notch above the 160cc segment and at close quarters with 200cc offerings. So, does the Hornet 2.0 find an agreeable neutral territory between the two displacement options, or is it a compromise in every sense?
