    On the design front the Honda X-Blade features a full LED headlamp with a 9 LED position lamp. The tail lamp also gets the full LED treatment. An aggressive tank design, alloy wheels, digital meter and a dual-outlet chrome-tipped muffler make way in the design of the X-Blade. It also features a gear position indicator, hazard switch, service due indicator for added convenience. A rear tyre hugger is present to protect the under-body from mud accumulation.

It produces 13.93 bhp of power at 8,500 rpm and 13.9 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm which promises good low and mid range performance. In the handling department, a wheelbase of 1347 mm aided by mono-shock type rear suspension and a 130 mm rear tyre, enhance the overall stability of the motorcycle. Honda has also added a link type gear shifter, long seat, sealed chain and a hazard switch for increased comfort and safety.





    Elaborating how X-Blade offers irresistible value, Mr. Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Senior Vice President - Sales and Marketing, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt. Ltd., said, “The aggressive and futuristic new X-Blade has been designed for millennials and Gen-Z. As promised, we have started the dispatches of X-Blade in March 2018. Armed with more style, Honda’s tried and tested HET 160cc engine, and superior technology, X-Blade creates a new benchmark with several segment first features in its class and that too at an attractive price of Rs. 78,500 (Ex-showroom, Delhi).

    X-Blade is cheaper than Hornet

    The more I think about it the more I feel that X-Blade is supposed to be a general commuter class bike and not a Naked class bike. Is this bike supposed to replace Unicorn 160?

    The Hornet ain't bad looking but this looks better than the pricier Hornet.

    Hmm that is really strange, as far I can tell the govt plans to make abs/cbs mandatory for all bikes above 125 cc, wonder why they did not include a disc at the rear, perhaps the second or third batch would have them.

    That rule is a bit sketchy in the sense there isnt clear details about it.

    We dont know whether it means, bikes manufactured after April should have ABS/CBS or New models launching after April should have ABS/CBS

    If its the latter then well, you know what that means.

    April 2018 onwards no new motorcycle/scooter above 150cc can be launched/registered without ABS.

    April 2019 onwards all existing motorcycle/scooters above 150cc have compulsory ABS. All new vehicles sold have to be equipped with ABS. Motorcycles like the FZ 25 for example will come with ABS.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers

    125cc not 150

    FZ25 is an existing model. It might not get ABS until April 2019

    Oh, ok - I thought it was 150cc.

    I meant FZ25 bought new/registered after April 2019 will have to have ABS.
