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.
Targeted towards the youth of the nation the new Honda X-Blade is a stylish bike featured with its cut through transformer-inspired futuristic LED headlight - a segment first feature and sporty dual outlet port silencer. The aggressive and futuristic design of the new Honda X-Blade is further accentuated by link type gear shifter, unique spilt grab rails, stylish alloy wheels, hugger fender and muscular graphics. Powering the X-Blade it is a 162.71 cc HET engine which promises typical Honda refinement and reliability.
The all new digital instrument console comes with a Service Due Indicator and gear position indicator. The long 1,347 mm wheelbase and the wider 130 section tubeless rear tyre enhance stability in bad roads and ensure comfort during longer rides. The X-Blade will be available in 5 colours options – Matte Marvel Blue Metallic / Matte Frozen Silver Metallic / Pearl Spartan Red / Pearl Igneous Black and Matte Marshal Green Metallic. Price of the bike is not been announced and it will be done in March 2018 when the bike will be available in the market.
