HONDA X BLADE Videos

HONDA X BLADE OVERVIEW

Not much has changed in terms of features in the Honda X-Blade BS6. It continues to use an LED headlamp, hazard lamps function, an all-digital instrument cluster with a gear shift indicator, and a service reminder. That said, Honda has equipped the motorcycle with an engine kill switch. It also gets an optional rear 220mm petal disc for better braking performance. Honda continues to offer a single-channel ABS as standard.

The Honda X-Blade BS6 draws power from the same 162.71cc single-cylinder air-cooled fuel-injected counterbalanced engine that you find on the new Unicorn BS6. However, it is tuned differently to produce 13.8PS at 8000rpm and 14.7Nm at 5500rpm. The addition of the counterbalancer should make the engine more refined. It links to the same 5-speed transmission as before.

The Honda X-Blade BS6 doesn’t get anything too fancy regarding underpinnings, with the frame suspended by a telescopic fork and a mono-shock. Braking duties are handled by a 276mm front disc, and a 130mm rear drum with single-channel ABS is standard. It also gets the option of a 220mm petal disc now, and the bike tips the scales at 143kg kerb and 1kg more than the BS4 model. The rear disc brake-equipped variant weighs 1kg more than the drum version.

The Honda X-Blade competes against the Bajaj Pulsar 150 and the TVS Apache RTR 160 2V. However, in its price bracket, the bike also goes up against the Bajaj Pulsar 180F, TVS Apache RTR 180, TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Bajaj Pulsar NS160, Yamaha FZ-S V3, Suzuki Gixxer, and Hero Xtreme 160R.

HONDA X BLADE VERDICT

PROS

  • Overall riding stance is comfortable
  • Gets a wide service network
  • 160cc engine is refined

CONS

  • Difficult to read the instrument cluster
  • No option of rear disc brake
