Suzuki Gixxer or Honda CB Hornet?
If you were looking for bike into the 150cc segment, the Suzuki Gixxer and Honda CB Hornet are most leading bikes in this. In designing, Honda CB Hornet 160R uses sharp lines, a headlamp, fuel tank, side panels and tail all match up, while the Suzuki Gixxer looks softer and curvier. The Hornet has an all-digital speedometer that looks really modern, only lacking in terms of good readability when riding in sunlight. The Hornet has 162.7cc engine which is air-cooled, four-stroke unit outputs 15.7BHP and 14.76Nm of torque, but compared with the 155cc engine and 14.6bhp of the maximum power of Suzuki Gixxer however, the Hornet lacks a potent feeling in power delivery.
In terms of performance, both the bikes are good in different aspects. Rider involvement is the one thing that attracts most of the riders towards the Gixxer. The sensations that rider get atop a Gixxer are just not there on a Hornet. The precise handling, the sense of urgency in power delivery, all make for a more exciting experience in Gixxer than Hornet. So, Suzuki Gixxer is a better bike than Honda CB Hornet.
