HMSI announces market launch of X-Blade priced at Rs 78500

The overall styling of the Honda X-Blade is impressive, barring the twin-outlet muffler which doesn't flow well with the design.

It's certain that design was one of the priorities when making the Honda X-Blade. The new Honda X-Blade made its public debut at the Auto Expo 2018.

Honda engineers have equipped the X-Blade with smaller tyres - 80/110 R17 and 130/70 R17 section tyres at the front and rear (the Hornet 160 gets 100/80 R17 and 140/70 R17 tyres), respectively.

The Honda X Blad competes against the likes of Bajaj Pulsar NS 160, TVS Apache RTR 160 and Suzuki Gixxer. The engine is created to deliver good low and mid-range performance, faster acceleration, and better load carrying capacity.

NEW DELHI:Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt Ltd (HMSI) on Tuesday announced the launch of its new 160cc premium motorcycle, the X-Blade, with a price tag of Rs 78,500 (ex-showroom, Delhi).

Balancing sportiness with practicality, X-Blade has been fitted with a link type gear shifter for precise and smooth shifts.

The X-Blade will be available in 5 sporty colours - Matte Marvel Blue Metallic / Matte Frozen Silver Metallic / Pearl Spartan Red / Pearl Igneous Black and Matte Marshal Green Metallic.

Termed by Honda as "Robo-face", the bike's edgy headlight is an all-LED unit (a segment-first feature). As promised, we have started the dispatches of X-Blade in March 2018. A 9 LED position lamp setup ensures that the X-Blade stands out of the crowd. The bike gets an all-digital instrument cluster which shows service due indicator, digital clock and a gear position indicator. The sharp, razor-edged elements run throughout from the front to the rear and the sculpted fuel tank further provides it with a muscular look.

Powering the new Honda X-Blade is the company's tried and tested 162.71 cc HET engine which churns out a maximum of 13.93 bhp at 8,500 rpm and develops a peak torque of 13.9 Nm at 6,000 rpm.

It even sports monoshock suspension, long seat, sharply designed grab rail to highlight the rear, hazard switch flashing indicator lights, and low maintenance seal cabin. The latter protects X-Blade from underbody from mud accumulation.
