Honda has unveiled the new dual-sport motorcycle, Honda CBF190X, at the 14th China International Motorcycle Trade Exhibition (CIMA 2016) in Chongqing, China. It joins the company’s CB190R and CBF190R in the sub-200 cc model range.
The Honda CBF190X, labelled ‘Honda Flight Hawk’ on the fuel tank, is powered by a 184 cc SOHC air-cooled, single-cylinder engine that produces 15 hp at 11,000 rpm and 15 Nm of torque at 7,000 rpm. The engine is paired to a 5-speed transmission. It weighs 148 kg, putting it 8 kg lighter than the CBF190R.
In the styling department, the CBF190X looks to have got it right, featuring an extended beak and extended rear grab-rails that look ready to mount panniers. The motorcycle features single hydraulic discs front and rear, and is placed on alloy wheels, with a golden finish.
The Honda CBF190X hasn’t been launched yet, but China is one market that is confirmed to get it. There’s no word on an international launch, but it looks unlikely as the aforementioned 190 cc Honda models are not sold outside China.
Concurrently, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI) has reportedly ruled out the launch of this model.
