Honda XBlade Latest Updates

Honda has launched the X-Blade ABS for Rs 87,776 (ex-showroom Delhi). This is the same single-channel ABS unit found on the Honda CB Hornet 160R. The ABS variant costs  Rs 8,008 more than the standard variant. Along with the safety update, Honda is now offering accessories like a belly pan fairing, front fork covers and wheel rim tapes as standard with the new variant. It goes up against the Suzuki Gixxer ABS and the Honda Xtreme Sports.

Honda XBlade Highlights

XBlade Specifications

The Honda X-Blade shares its motor with the Hornet 160R. But the 162.71cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine puts out 14PS of power at 8500rpm and 13.9Nm of torque at 6000rpm, which is 1.5PS and 1Nm less than the Hornet 160R. The motor is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The X-Blade gets a diamond-type frame suspended on telescopic forks up front and a monoshock at the rear. Braking duties are handled by a 276mm front disc and a 130mm rear drum brake. It is equipped with a 12-litre fuel tank and tips the scale at 140kg (kerb).

XBlade Features

The Honda X-Blade is a sharper and more chiseled version of the Honda Hornet, with muscular fuel tank extensions, a dual outlet muffler and a unique headlamp design. It gets a digital instrument cluster and LED lighting for both the headlamp and the tail lamp. There’s a single-piece seat on the X-Blade that’s slightly longer than the one seen on the Hornet. A rear disc brake is not available even as an option and neither is ABS.

Honda XBlade Competitors

Suzuki Gixxer : The engine and the bike’s handling have been developed under the watchful eyes of the same designers who have also produced the Suzuki GSX-R series. This is a worthy city-based sporty 155cc bike, with distinct design and enviable refinement.

Yamaha FZ-S V2.0: The V2.0 delivers on style, build quality, refinement and handling. It is also the only bike in the segment to get fuel-injection, but that puts it on the top in terms of pricing. That said, it is a strong performer and is a proper upgrade to the previous version.

Bajaj Pulsar NS 160: The Pulsar NS 160 ticks all the right boxes when it comes to style, performance, ride and handling, barring refinement. The new NS 160 is a worthy contender and makes a strong case for itself in this highly competitive 160cc segment.

TVS Apache RTR 160 4V: Competitive pricing and performance are two key areas that need to be addressed to survive in this cut-throat segment and the Apache RTR 160 4V delivers well on both fronts with class-leading features. However, it doesn’t feel as confident as the Pulsar NS 160 or the Honda Hornet while braking.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying XBlade

Q. Can Honda XBlade suitable for three young person in seat?
  • Honda XBlade comes with a single seat in which 3-person can ride but we'd recommend not to do triple loading as it may be risky in handling and will impact you according to the traffic rule.
Q. Is this a good bike in 90000 - XBlade?
  • No I would suggest you to go for 17 bhp bike instead like pulsar 180 in view of power. It takes much time to gain speed 100 kmph or more. I am much disappointed with it When I used it to run more than 100 kmph it went malfunctioned I mean it had something faulty in its carburetor somehow got repaired in the first service period.
  • Yes,
  • Engine is smoother compared to others in the segment..But I would suggest to go for Fz.

Q. I'm planning to buy a new book bike, I'm confuse in choosing the bike 1)Honda Hornet 2) Honda Xblade 3) Suzuki Gixxer. Which one is better?
  • If you are looking for a bit of professional bike(like office boy), then go for x blade.. If you are looking for a sportive or muscular look bike, then Hornet will be good for you. There is not much difference in mileage for both the bikes. I have hornet & my roommate has x blade. No idea about gixxer.
  • High range bike you may buy cbz extreme. pulsar 125cc.150cc.but al those bike have near 45km/litre or if you want to buy average bike thanbuy honda neo/livo.hero splendour /passion/xprothese bikes have near 60km/litre average. avoid honda( shine)
  • If you can't wait a little for Hornet bs6 model, I would go for Yamaha fz bs6. It's light, easily flickable, stable at high speeds and has a good amount of torque at low and mid range that makes it good in the city.

Q. Which one is the best xblade or hornet
  • The Honda X-Blade shares its motor with the Hornet 160R. But the 162.71cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine puts out 14PS of power at 8500rpm and 13.9Nm of torque at 6000rpm, which is 1.5PS and 1Nm less than the Hornet 160R. The motor is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The X-Blade looks a lot more appealing than the Hornet and the Unicorn 160. The only miss here then is the lack of any kind of braking aids. The stopping power on the bike, though, feels lacking. The brakes have decent bite but desperately lack feel. The CB Hornet 160R is for the discerning rider who is looking for a sporty and premium 160cc motorcycle that offers looks, more performance and better safety, thanks to the optional ABS. On the other hand, young riders who are under a strict budget may find the X-Blade alluring, thanks to the touring-friendly ergonomics and an aggressive design language.

  • I have driven Trigger previously. I have driven Pulsar 180 also. Now, I own Honda XBlade. But both of Honda bikes.... I felt that these are ordinary bikes behind the garb of Honda. I would prefer Pulsar 180 bike most on point of power...pickup if selected out of these three bikes. But Pulsar 180 bike had one drawbacks like its handle felt heavy on drivers' shoulders.

Honda X-Blade: Road Test Review

Honda’s latest entrant in the rather crowded 160cc space certainly looks the sharpest, but the specifications are more in line with a daily commuter. Does this formula make it suffer an identity crisis, or has Honda managed to cook up a unique recipe?
