Currently, the affordable ADV space has very few options in the country. And the ones available - Hero Xpulse and the Royal Enfield Himalayan - have a huge gap since the former is priced at 1.15 lakh, while the latter costs 2.01 lakh (both ex-showroom). Honda will be targeting the space in between with its Hornet-based ADV which is likely to be placed somewhere in the bracket of 1.35 lakh to 1.45 lakh (ex-showroom).
