The Honda X-Blade will arrive at showrooms next month
The Honda X-Blade sports a rugged and sharp design with muscular fuel tank extensions, a dual outlet muffler and a unique headlamp design. At the front, the X-Blade gets a full LED headlamp which sits above the digital instrument cluster, while the rear gets LED tail lamps. The X-Blade gets a single saddle unit instead of split-seats.
Powering the Honda X-Blade is a 162.71cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine that puts out 14PS of power at 8500rpm and 13.9Nm of torque at 6000rpm. This motor is mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
The X-Blade is based on a diamond type frame and gets telescopic forks at the front and a monoshock unit at the rear. Braking duties are handled by 276mm disc brakes at the front and 130mm drum brakes at the rear. It is equipped with a 12-litre fuel tank and tips the scale at 140kg (kerb).
The Honda X-Blade comes in five different colours - Metallic Blue, Pearl Black, Matte Silver, Pearl Red and Matte Green. When launched, it will go up against the Hero Glamour and the Suzuki Gixxer SF.
