Now people aware of the latest developments have told HT Auto that Honda is planning to introduce an affordable ADV which will retail from the RedWing dealerships like the Hornet 2.0. The sources added that the motorcycle will share its engine and platform with the new Hornet which will also enable the company to price it competitively in the segment.

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).
