Both Royal Enfield Hunter 350 and the Honda Hornet 2.0 are great motorcycles in their own right. The Hunter 350 is a great bike for those looking for an affordable, yet stylish small-capacity motorcycle. It has a retro design, great handling and friendly nature that makes it attractive to new riders. On the other hand, the Hornet 2.0 has great handling dynamics and a frugal engine. It also has features such as USD fork and LED lighting which give it a premium feel. However, the lack of engine excitement may put a damper on some riders. Ultimately, we suggest that you take a test ride of both the bikes to decide which one suits you better.
