Honda targets Gen-Z customers with the new Honda X-Blade. The design plays the part too, with aggressive lines, transformer-inspired headlamp design, and sporty alloy wheels. The headlight and tail light are all-LED. The new digital instrument cluster comes with a gear position indicator and service due indicator in addition to the usual slew of information. Other notable features include dual-outlet muffler, hazard lights; and a low-maintenance seal chain which increases the chain life by 1.6 times. Minoru Kato, President & CEO, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd., said:

Gaining maximum market share, Honda is set to cross 6 Million sales target this fiscal year. Our 3 brand new models of 2017-18 – CLIQ, Africa Twin and GRAZIA are already well received in the Indian market. I am confident that India will experience street riding like never before on our 4th brand new offering X-Blade with leading segment first features. 2018 will be an exciting year for the two-wheeler industry and Honda is all set to transform the way India rides in future.

Powering the Honda X-Blade is a 162.71 cc single cylinder HET engine. It produces 13.93 bhp at 8,500 rpm, and 13.9 Nm at 6,000 rpm. The engine pairs with a 5-speed transmission. The diamond type frame rides on telescopic front fork and a rear monoshock. The front fork comes with a nicely designed fork covers as well.

The Honda X-Blade will be available in five colours options – Matte Marvel Blue Metallic; Matte Frozen Silver Metallic; Pearl Spartan Red; Pearl Igneous Black and Matte Marshal Green Metallic. Honda will announce the price next month, and that is when the bike will enter the market.
