Honda X-Blade despatch begins; priced at Rs 78500

Honda has launched the new X-Blade at Rs 78,500, making it Rs 3,859 is cheaper than the CB Hornet 160R that retails for Rs 82,359 (all prices, ex-showroom, Delhi). Notably, its price is Rs 3,859 lesser than compared to CB Hornet 160R, which was priced at Rs 82,359 (ex-showroom). As promised, we have started the dispatches of X-Blade in March 2018. The overall styling of the Honda X-Blade is impressive, barring the twin-outlet muffler which doesn't flow well with the design. The company had showcased the new model at the Auto Expo held last month.

Balancing sportiness with practicality, X-Blade has been fitted with a link type gear shifter for precise and smooth shifts. The new Honda X-Blade can be had in five colours including-Matte Marvel Blue Metallic / Matte Frozen Silver Metallic / Pearl Spartan Red / Pearl Igneous Black and Matte Marshal Green Metallic. The new motorcycle will be competing against the likes of the Suzuki Gixxer and the Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 in the segment. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox and Honda says that the engine has been specifically created to deliver good low and mid-range performance. Honda has prepared X-Blade with keeping the youth in mind and that's why it has been made with an aggressive design.

To enhance the sporty character of the bike the vehicles comes with a wide 130 mm rear tyre, long 1347 mm wheelbase & mono-shock rear suspension for better high speed handling.

The new X Blade comes with a 162.71 cc engine. A 9 LED position lamp setup appael stands out. Producing 13.93 bhp at 8,500 rpm and peak torque of 13.9 Nm at 6,000 rpm X-Blade also promises faster acceleration and better load carrying capacity. Another notable feature is the fully-digital speedo console that even offers a Service Due reminder and a Gear Indicator. A long seat, seal chain, hazard switch and an informative digital instrument cluster are among the other key features of the motorcycle.

A sculpted fuel tank, sharply designed grab rails, and rear tyre hugger fender fortify its design language. The CB Unicorn and the CB Hornet 160R have an option to be equipped with CBS, which the X-Blade misses out on.
