Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India ie HMSI has recently teased an adventure bike, which will be launched in India on August 19, 2021. The motorcycle is likely to be based on the Honda Hornet 2.0 platform. Honda has invested extensively in the Hornet 2.0 platform and plans to explore new models based on the same platform.

This new bike can be called the NX200. Although Honda has not officially released the name of the bike, it has registered the name NX200.

What is the specialty of Honda Hornet 2.0?
Honda Hornet 2.0 is powered by an 184.4 cc engine that generates 17 bhp power at 8,500 rpm and 16.1 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm and is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The engine gets Honda’s programmed fuel injection along with 8 on-board sensors that continuously inject optimum fuel and air mixture for better efficiency and performance. We can expect the same engine on the NX200 and maybe a slightly different tuning.
New bike will give competition to Hero XPulse 200
The new ADV is expected to get a slightly longer suspension journey and dual-sport wheel/tyres, which will give it an ‘adventure’ flavor unlike the street bike. If the bike is indeed a 200cc ADV, then it will directly compete with the Hero X-Plus 200, which has no direct rival as of now.
The latest Honda bike can be priced between Rs 1.30 lakh and Rs 1.80 lakh when officially launched.
