Description

The new Honda X-Blade shares its underpinning with the Honda CB Horner 160R and comes with a sharper design language and an all-LED headlamp cluster. Honda X-Blade 160 is about Rs. The CB Horner is 4,000 cheaper than the base variant of the 160R. The bike is going to compete with Suzuki Gixxer and Bajaj Pulsar NS160 in this segment.

Design

It is available in two variants which are the Standard one and the ABS one. The ABS variant actually costs Rs 8,008 more than the standard variant. With the safety update, Honda is now introducing new variants with accessories such as belly pan fairing, front fork covers and wheel rim tape. It goes up against the Suzuki Gixxer ABS and Honda Xtreme Sports.

Engine and Gears

The Honda X-Blade, the CB Unicorn 160 and CB Hornet 160R are the latest additions to Honda’s 160cc platform sold in the market. It has the same engine as the other two models, a 162cc air-cooled, single-cylinder motor that produces 13.9bhp and 13.9Nm. The power figures CB inch closer to the Unicorn 160 than the more powerful CB Hornet 160R. Power is transmitted to the rear wheel through a five-speed gearbox. Apart from the motor, the X-Blade comes with a 12-liter fuel tank, LED headlamps, digital instrument console and gear position indicator. It has got 5-speed gearbox which is smooth, with no hiccups.

Tires and Suspensions

The wheel sizes are 17-inches and it has tubeless tires for both front and rear tires. Suspension is just about being rigid to keep things. The bike gets 33mm telescopic forks in the front and a monoshock at the rear (adjustable for pre-load) which is not really great but there is no broken link from the rear. Regular pits and bumps will be ironed easily enough. One thing that could be a pain may be the seat.

Electronics

There is a fully digital instrument console with speedometer, odometer, rev counter as well as fuel gauge and gear position indicator. The T-shaped tail lamp looks quite quiet and also has an LED unit.

Pros and Cons
Pros
  • The 160cc engine is refined
  • Overall riding position is comfortable
  • Obtains a wide service network
Cons
  • Instrument cluster is difficult to read
  • No option of rear disc brake
Conclusion

The Honda X-Blade is priced at Rs 79,059 for launch in showrooms for India and will compete against the likes of TVS Apache RTR 160 and Suzuki Gixxer, to name a few. It will probably cost Rs 2,85,900 lakhs in Nepal.
