The new Honda X-Blade will be priced under Rs. 79,000 and deliveries are expected to begin by March 2018.
Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has announced bookings for the new 160 cc motorcycle Honda X-Blade, after the bike was unveiled at the Auto Expo 2018. The Honda X-Blade will be positioned just below the Honda CB Hornet 160R in Honda’s product line-up, and bookings are being accepted at all Honda dealerships. HMSI says the decision to open bookings for the X-Blade was taken after the overwhelming response to the X-Blade at the Auto Expo 2018. The X-Blade will be competing against the likes of the Suzuki Gixxer and the Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 in the segment.
“Honda unveiled its 4th brand new model of 2018 – the X-Blade at Auto Expo 2018. We are indeed very excited to receive unprecedented response from Generation Z. We are happy to open the bookings for the all-new Honda X-Blade today. Delighting young Indian trendsetters with revolutionary segment first features, Honda’s ultimate head turner X-Blade will surprise Indian youth with its aggressive price of under 79,000 (Ex-showroom, Delhi). The X-Blade deliveries will start from the middle of March on first-come-first-serve basis,” said Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Senior Vice President – Sales and Marketing, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India.
The new Honda X-Blade is built on the Honda CB Hornet 160R platform, sharing the same engine, chassis and cycle parts. Honda says the engine has been tuned differently to give the X-Blade better in-city performance, while offering superior fuel economy. The X-Blade gets re-worked bodywork, as well as an all-new, full LED headlamp cluster and is available in a choice of five different colours. Priced under ₹ 79,000 (ex-showroom), the Honda X-Blade offers a stylish and youthful 160 cc motorcycle at a very attractive price.
