The new X-Blade motorcycle debuted at the 2018 Auto Expo and Honda has stated that it will be priced below ₹79,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The company has begun accepting bookings and deliveries will begin around mid-March.
The target market for the X-Blade includes youngsters and millennials. The basic silhouette of the bike resembles the Honda CB Hornet 160R, but the rest is really aggressive-looking. Honda calls the design ‘Robo-face’, with an edgy headlight that’s an all-LED unit, a taller fly screen, an underbelly cowl, chunky grab rails and a redesigned LED tail-lamp.
There’s a full-digital console with a gear-position indicator, service indicator, hazard lights and a white backlight. The same 162.7cc air-cooled motor from the CB Hornet 160R does duty on this bike, but it makes 13.9hp and 13.9Nm on this bike. The engine is mated to a five-speed gearbox.
There’s no rear disc brake though, even as an option. It doesn’t have CBS or ABS either. There are five colours on sale – Matte Marvel Blue Metallic, Pearl Igneous Black, Matte Frozen Silver, Pearl Spartan Red and Matte Marshal Green Metallic.
All bikes on sale in India now have been converted to run on BS IV fuel, so which is the most efficient now.Read More
