Alongside the new X-Blade, Honda has more to showcase at the 2018 Auto Expo.
Honda has revealed its revised motorcycle lineup for the 2018 model year. Most Honda two-wheelers, from scooters to superbikes, have received subtle updates to keep them fresh and competitive.
2018 Activa 5G: The updated Activa now gets a new Deluxe variant, which has digital-analogue metre, two new colours, full LED headlamp and position lamp, front hook and 4-in-1 lock. Mechanically, the scooter remains powered by the same 110cc engine.
2018 Livo: For 2018, the Livo gets a new analogue-digital-metre console with service due indicator, clock and low maintenance seal chain.
2018 CB Shine: The CB Shine now sports new graphics, front chrome garnish, refreshed instrumentation, low maintenance seal chain and a new colour.
2018 CB Hornet 160R: The 160cc motorcycle now sports a new full-LED headlamp, new graphics and hazard lamps. However, the most important addition to the bike is the inclusion of ABS, though it is only offered as an option.
2018 CBR250R: The aging CBR250R has been mildly refreshed with a new LED headlight and new colours. Dual-channel ABS is now standard. No new-generation model of the bike is in sight.
2018 Africa Twin: The sports tourer now gets new throttle-by-wire technology with three new ride modes. It also gains a new lighter lithium-ion battery, fresh instrumentation and a new emergency stop signal function.
2018 CBR1000RR SP: Tuned for hardcore riders, the Fireblade SP is Honda’s first bike to feature Ohlins Electronic Control suspension, lithium-ion battery, quick shifter with slipper clutch and Brembo front brake callipers.
Alongside these models, Honda also showcased the new-generation Goldwing and the updated CBR650F.
