Honda X-Blade Facelift Launching In India — No Botox, Just Make-Up!

Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India is planning to launch a face-lift version of the X-Blade some time around a festive season.

The X-Blade was showcased at Auto Expo 2018 and launched in March 2019. While there was a fair response toward the motorcycle, sales started dropping during the last quarter of 2018. Honda feels the reason was people found the colour schemes unappealing. According to bikewale.com, the Japanese auto giant plans to more colour options via attractive dual-tone paint schemes - to make the motorcycle look more sportier.

The design and mechanics of the motorcycle will remain the same. The existing 162cc single-cylinder will continue to produce 14bhp of power and 13.9 Nm of torque. The engine will continue to be mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The motorcycle will continue to feature a disc brake in the front and a drum in the rear. The Honda X-Blade will see no change in pricing and will continue to retail at Rs 81,668 onwards (ex-showroom, India).
