I have crossed 15000km still I don't seem any problem and about mileage on high I evaluated mileage of 63kmpl .compared to other company sports bikes xblade is the best choice . It has some maintenance but to achieve something u need to pay something ...right...And trust me braking is superb,suspension is superb,power is superb, just rear tyre is sleepery but it's not that sleepery so u can't control it....,every sports bike have such tyres ....I am myself a mechanic and have experience in this field of 2 yrs and currently working in same but the bike is just unique.....

Nearabout 50 kmpl. Braking performance is fairly good, if used keeping in view safety norms. but not the best. It requires regular & continuous use of the bike...I never used it more than 15000 kms as yet. I would not recommend it it go on a journey for more than 5000kms at a stretch...

It is expected to return the fuel efficiency around 55-60 kmpl (approx). Talking about its stopping power, it feels lacking of ABS. The brakes have decent bite but desperately lack feel. The front disc still managed to convey some kind of feedback but the rear drum just seems wooden and happily locks up under hard braking. This wouldn’t have been a huge concern if Honda had offered ABS, or even CBS, but neither of them are available on the bike, even as an option.
The Honda X-Blade has been glorified with a great seating position with the ergonomics of a proper commuter, the seat is wide, with the cushioning on the softer side, and handlebars are also well set for reach. Moreover, we would suggest you take a test ride of the bike so that you may evaluate the bike on the basis of your outlook toward the ride quality, features and comfort of the bike.Read more:Honda X-Blade: Road Test Review: https://www.zigwheels.com/reviews-advice/reviews/honda-xblade-road-test-review/30180/

Seat doesn't offer adequate cushioning for long rides, everything else is good.
If a bike has to survive in the cut-throat 160cc two-wheeler segment, it needs to be competitively priced and pack enough performance to keep riders happy. Thankfully, the Apache RTR 160 4V delivers well on both fronts with class leading features at its price. However, it doesn’t feel as confident under hard braking as the Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 or the Honda Hornet. That said, the Apache RTR 160 4V is not only the most refined RTR we have ridden till date but also one of the most refined 160cc motorcycles to be ever produced in India. Apache RTR 160 and XBlade, both bikes have similar fuel efficiency but XBlade provide better riding posture and comfort.

Better to buy Honda shine in place of X-Blade bike in view of comfort,convenience and satisfaction. Go for Bajaj bike in stead Honda bike. Never expect that with a bike more than its capacity. It may not be a car or a plane. This is my conclusion after long experience of a series of bikes so far.

Actually, X Blade do not need ABS.The reason is size of disc used in front fork.ABS is provided just because of Govt. regulations else X Blade is a perfect without ABS.I used non ABS and ABS versions of X blade.It seems not much difference until I open engine above 100kmph.After 100kmph, ABS is always good.
It would be difficult to give any verdict on off-roading mileage of X Blade because off-roading is a sport where the bike will run on low gears at high RPM which results in less mileage as compared to normal conditions and every technical part of the bike is behaving differently.
It's easy to manoeuvre the bike in between traffic, and taking u-turns is also quite simple. But this lightness becomes a bit of an issue on winding roads. The bike is a bit too eager to tip into corners and doesn't provide confidence when leaned over. It won't be a problem at normal speeds, but don't expect it to feel as planted as the Hornet or the other performance 160s. The front suspension is beautifully tuned to take on bumps. It glides over bad roads, soaking all the undulations with utmost ease. In contrast, the rear feels a little stiffer in its stock setting. It ends up feeling a bit harsh on sharp bumps, and transferring those shocks to the rider. But all things considered, it offers a pleasant ride quality, which settles quickly after bumps, and for the most part remains comfortable. It deliver a mileage arounf 55 kmpl and Being a honda product it is easy top maintain. In order to get exact detail about service cost, we would suggest you to contact authorised dealership as they will be the better persons to assist you in this concern.
