Honda Motorcycles has launched the ABS-equipped variant of their X-Blade. The Honda X-Blade ABS is priced at Rs 87,776, ex-showroom (Delhi). This is a premium of just over Rs 8,000 over the non-ABS variant, which is priced at Rs 79,768, ex-showroom (Delhi).
Honda introduced the X-Blade in the market, earlier this year. The X-Blade offers a stylish and sporty design. The motorcycle was first showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo. The new ABS variant doesn't get any other changes apart from the addition of the safety feature.
In terms of features, the 160cc motorcycle comes with a host of segment-first equipment. Some of the features include LED headlamps and tail lights, digital instrument cluster, digital clock, service due indicator, hazard light switch and gear position indicator.
The Honda X-Blade continues to be offered in a range of five colour choices - Matte Frozen Silver Metallic, Pearl Spartan Red, Pearl Igneous Black, Matte Marvel Blue Metallic and Marshal Green Metallic.
The X-Blade is powered by a 162.71cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine. It produces 13.93bhp and 13.9Nm of peak torque and is mated to a five-speed gearbox with a link gear shifter for more precise shifts.
The suspension on the motorcycle is through telescopic front forks and a monoshock at the rear. The X-Blade rides on 17-inch alloy wheels, with a disc brake at the front and a drum brake at the rear. The brakes are now supported with a single-channel ABS system.
