The Honda X-Blade was unveiled at the Auto Expo 2018. The premium commuter bike from Honda, the X-Blade features a sharp design language, a first-in-segment full-LED headlamp and digital instrument console.
Bookings of the X-Blade have already started, and Honda expects a good market response for their latest 160cc product. Why should you buy it? Well, the features of the new Honda X-Blade. That said, here are the Honda X-Blade top features you should know about:
Honda X-Blade Design Features
The unique features of the Honda X-Blade design give the motorcycle a distinct position in the commuter bike segment. The front cowl, the fuel tank, and the tail-section of the Honda X-Blade feature a noticeably sharp profile.
The ‘Robo-face' headlamp unit (name given by Honda themselves) features a first-in-segment full-LED cluster. The cowl surrounding it, is finished with the least of curves. The rather tall windscreen of the Honda X-Blade is both functional as well as aesthetic.
The Honda X-Blade comes with funky graphics and colours which highlight the sharp body elements. The new X-Blade is available in five colours, namely - Matte Marvel Blue Metallic, Matte Frozen Silver Metallic, Pearl Spartan Red, Pearl Igneous Black and Matte Marshal Green Metallic.
Honda X-Blade Adventure Variant
The funkier sibling of the X-Blade, the X-Blade Adventure features a taller windscreen, a neatly integrated crash guard and an eye-catching dual-tone paint scheme. The Honda X-Blade Adventure is aimed to be a budget touring motorcycle for beginners.
The X-Blade Adventure also gets a rear luggage rack, which can affix a top box. Other than that, the Honda X-Blade Adventure features similarly to the regular model.
Fully-Digital Instrument Console
The digital instrument console blends well with the other sharp features of the Honda X-Blade. The flat-hexagon console displays all the vital information one would expect, plus a service reminder and a gear-shift indicator.
The Honda X-Blade also gets a dual-outlet muffler, with a chrome surround. This muffler setup has been seen before in other bikes such as the TVS Apache RTR 200 and the Suzuki Gixxer, and helps in giving the motorcycle a sweet exhaust note.
Thoughts On The Top Honda X-Blade Features
With a sharp design language, full-LED headlamps and a refined engine, the Honda X-Blade features enough to attract young riders. Though it misses out on essentials such as ABS and a rear disc brake, the price of the new Honda X-Blade justifies that.
