General Grievous was a four-armed lightsaber wielding Jedi hunter. A warlord who suffered great injuries in a ship crash, Grievous was rebuilt as a cyborg and went on to lead the Droid army. The skills of a Kaleesh warrior and the prosthetics of a cyborg made him a formidable rival of the Republic.
But why am I making these Star Wars references? Well, the X Blade is Honda’s very own General Grievous. It has the heart and soul of the CB Unicorn 160 paired up with the muscular styling inspired by the CB Hornet 160R.
And the similarities don’t end here. Look at it head-on, and fancy LED lamps give it a distinctive look, quite similar to Grievous’ face. The body is full of edges and creases, and the X Blade commands attention like no other small-capacity Honda. With these looks, you are sure to stay in the limelight wherever you go.
