Going by the specifications, expect the new Honda X-Blade to be positioned below the CB Hornet 160R.
Honda has taken the wraps off the new X-Blade, the company’s brand new 160cc motorcycle.
The new X-Blade is mostly based on the CB Hornet 160R, however, it features a slightly raised design, which is dominated by the long front visor. The X-Blade is powered by the same 162.7cc, air-cooled, single cylinder motor that produces 13.93bhp of max power and 13.9Nm of peak torque, which are a bit lesser than the Hornet.
It features a transformer-inspired full LED headlamp with position lamps, an LED tail lamp, alloy wheels, a dual outlet muffler and a digital metre. Furthermore, the bike has a wheelbase of 1,347mm, features monoshock suspension and sits on a 130mm rear tyre. More features include gear position indicator, hazard switch and service due indicator.
Price of the Honda X-Blade will be announced closer to its market release in March this year. The bike will be made available in five colours – Matte Marvel Blue Metallic, Pearl Spartan Red, Matte Frozen Silver Metallic, Pearl Igneous Black and Matte Marshal Green Metallic.
Honda reveals the 160cc XBlade that is scheduled for launch in March.
