On the Hornet Objective Hosokawa sama said ” Our aim has always been to match these to the lightest, most agile handling possible, to make every ride – even in town – as engaging and fulfilling as possible.
To get the kind of performance and lightweight handling we wanted, we knew we had to develop an all-new short-stroke twin-cylinder engine with a 270° crankshaft.
This would deliver that top-end rush and the sporty low-down torque, ideal for riding in urban environments and powering out of corners on the open road.
The Hornet has always been the ultimate representation of the streetfighter concept, and this new Hornet proudly carries on this tradition.
The Hornet has always been an exceptional motorcycle for Honda. Exciting, engaging performance has always been matched to lithe, agile handling. “
As we move into 2023 and with the Milan show behind us we can see the production models that Honda will release using this new engine.
Stay tuned, more to come!
