Rumor has it that Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India is near ready to launch its BS6 compliant Honda X-Blade 160. According to HT Auto, the brand is expected to launch the motorcycle within a couple of weeks.
The upgraded Honda X-Blade is expected to arrive with a new styling, and updated features as well. Speculation is that the motorcycle will feature new paint schemes and a new set of graphics. A new digital instrument cluster and a reworked windshield are also expected to feature.
The motorcycle will feature a BS6 compliant 162.7cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine that produces 12.7bhp and 14Nm of torque. The engine will come mated to a five-speed gearbox.
The upgraded Honda X-Blade expected to feature conventional telescopic forks at the front, and a mon-shock at the rear. It will also feature a disc brake at the front and a drum brake at the rear. Single-channel ABS will be offered as a standard.
The current generation Honda X-Blade 160 model is priced at Rs 90,797, and the upgraded models are expected to carry a premium of roughly between Rs 8,000 and Rs 10,000. All prices mentioned are ex-showroom.
In Honda related news, the brand is also preparing to launch BS6 compliant models of the Hornet 160R during July. Speculation is that the motorcycle will be approximately Rs 13,000 more expensive than its BS4 compliant models.
While the Hornet 160R will feature the same 162.7cc engine that was mounted on the BS4 compliant model, the engine is expected to arrive in a different state of tune.
Expectations are that the motorcycle will also arrive with new graphics, ACG silent start technology, and a combi-switch for the starter and engine kill operation. To know more, click here.
Thoughts About Honda Near Ready To Launch The BS6 Compliant X-Blade 160
Honda has been in the process of upgrading its entire portfolio to BS6 compliance, something it would have done earlier if not for the Covid-19 pandemic. The brand has already updated its range of 125cc offerings, and we expect Honda to upgrade the rest of its range in record time.
