The design statement of X-Blade has a commanding front stance with a futuristic segment first LED headlamp giving Robotic impression to the machine. X-Blade promises a brighter light throw than standard halogen lamps. A 9 LED position lamp setup ensures that the X-Blade stands out of the crowd. Adding to the sophisticated look are razor edged LED tail lamp and high rigidity sculpted fuel tank. That’s not all, while a sharply designed grab rail increases the aggression of the rear, a rear tyre hugger fender protects the underbody from mud accumulation. A dual outlet muffler with a chrome tip has been used to add to the sporty look.

Powering the X-Blade is Honda’s trusted 162.71 cc HET engine which provides an ideal balance of performance and efficiency. Producing 13.93 bhp at 8,500 rpm and peak torque of 13.92 Nm at 6,000 rpm X-Blade also promises faster acceleration and better load carrying capacity. The engine has been specifically designed to deliver good low and mid-range performance.

A wide 130 mm rear tyre and mono shock rear suspension promises better handling while cornering. Being an all-rounder the stylish X-Blade also focuses on comfort and safety with a long seat, seal chain and hazard switch. A street tech digital meter increases convenience with presence of a service due indicator, digital clock and a gear position indicator.

Bookings for the X-Blade can be made all Honda dealers across the country at Rs. 5,000. The X-Blade will be available in 5 sporty colours – Matte Marvel Blue Metallic / Matte Frozen Silver Metallic / Pearl Spartan Red / Pearl Igneous Black and Matte Marshal Green Metallic.
