    Congrats. Many are praising Hornet meanwhile, looks like you are not happy with your buy?. Gixxer in gear performance is great and Hornet lacks that. Taller gear system takes the toll here. But still Hornet will at least be half a sec faster than Gixxer and has good top end. Share more pictures and experience. Ride safe.

    Thanks.
    May be It felt like that because I rode it below 4k rpm.I am happy with the bike but finish of welds is lacking I feel.also the engine is quite refined compared to gixxer.it also builds revs easily and being a new bike grabs attention of people

    Yeah, refinements are always high with Honda, as we all expected. Hornet did live up to that. Since riding below 4-5K rpm will not show the full potential. Plus the bike has gears taller, so post 6K you should feel the surge. But watch out, you are in run-in period. Please follow as per the Hornet manual.

    These welds are very badly done

    do not worry about performance just keep one thing in your mind other man's wife is always more beautiful than yours and his bike is more refine, fast, powerful etc.so one must enjoy his both ride and should not kill the fun by comparing. Gixxer can not be hornet and vice versa
