Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying XBlade BS4

Q. Hi i want to buy it How is its headlight - XBlade?
  • Not up to the mark illumination. Other bikes with yellow or halogen lights have good brightness, and it also fails to provide lights around corners while turning, as its reflectors are not designed with correct balance. Illumination is quite low need more light as in india 98% people don't know the difference and use of high beam and low beam
  • It comes with unique headlamp design sharp-edged glass area which Honda says mimics a robo-face. It gets LED lighting for both the headlamp and the tail lamp which provide quite decent visibility.
  • It's good looks very different and striking , illumination is good and does its job , nothing exceptional

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 is a completely 'Underrated bike'...Many people says TVS Apache RTR 160 4V is a best bike in 160cc bike...Well, I Accept it! I think...Honda X-Blade is the second place in 160cc segmant...This is best commuting bike with very lot look !Pros: 50 to 54 kmpl any type of riding style in city...on highways definitely gives 55 kmplrobo-face LED headlamp, Gear Position Indicator, soft suspension seat setup, hazard light switch, fully digital instrument cluster, 130/70 section rear tyre with hugger, low maintenance seal chain, a dual-port exhaust muffler which delivers a punchy exhaust note, Very Comfortable seat for rider and pillion, Upright handle bar gives painless long rides.I drive maximum speed 123 kmph on my bike (rider only) & 119 kmph speed (rider and pillion)Single channel ABS Braking on front wheelCons: Slim Front Tyre (but its offer to good milaege), LED light brightness is average

    Bike is good, but due to slim front tyre, it's not convenient for long highway rides. Better for city. Mileage is good. Light Heavyweight Bike 140KGRider height under 5'6' may be a problemStarting problem may occurNo engine k**l switch but stock hazard switch available.No rear disc.Illumination is good (LED Headlights and DRLs)3 people can ride very comfortably (it's illegal though!)Cruising within 65-75 kmphNo LED IndicatorsFit and finish level is satisfactory, not so high.

    It's the first bike I have purchased by my own. it was been under track when it was been introduced on YouTube 2 years prior of it's launch. it is very much comfortable for both single and double riders.Weight is also great. Awasome engine sound but mileage is about 45-50 kmpl. Head light is also superb quality. it's also very much Trustable. Maintenance is almost Zero.I am very happy with my selection always well as the muscle hunk. thank you Honda for such an invention.

    PRO"S:Great looks- beats all the competition hereMileage: 48+kmpl in city with agressive driving and reaches to 55kmpl when driven at 50-70kmph. good enough.Price: its competitive @92K on road with all accessories.Engine performance and ride quality: Super smooth engine and clutch. Drove 100km at once without any strain.-Comfort for rider and pillion are the best in its segment.Con"s:A bit lag comes during 3rd gear by surprise, but throttle response is super in 4th and 5th gear too along with super smooth 1st and 2nd gear.-No engine kill switch (can be adjusted) but have hazard lights which is a new one.-could have provided back disk as an option Verdict: Best bike for daily usage who wants a stylish ,powerful,practical yet budget friendly one. Excellent bike to travel around city.

Honda XBlade BS4 Expert Reviews

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?
