New (old) Hornet for me, I love it.

  1. Picked up my new second hand 1996 Hornet 250 on Monday, I love it. It out handles the Bandit I was riding 20 to 1.
    Previous owner has put twin cans on it and had it tuned and it goes like stink, well as far as a 250 can go anyways.

    Michy rubber, Goodridge braided front brakes and the cans make for a very nice little 250.

  7. Nice!

  8. Yep 180 rear. Feels so much more stable than my bandit did.

    There aren't too many around in the 250 from what I can see. It's also bigger ,but lighter than other 250's of the same ilk. I know it's 12 0dd kg's lighter than my old bandit and you can really feel the difference.
