Honda CB200X is a bike available at a starting price of Rs. 1,44,680 in India. It is available in only 1 variant and 3 colours. The Honda CB200X is powered by 184.4cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 17 bhp and a torque of 16.1 Nm. With both front and rear disc brakes, Honda CB200X comes up with anti-locking braking system. This CB200X bike weighs 147 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 12 liters.
The Honda CB200X is based on the Hornet 2.0 although with styling that is inspired by the CB500X that is sold through Honda’s BigWing showrooms. So, the CB200X gets a half-fairing that features faux air vents on either side and houses a full-LED headlamp that has been borrowed from the Hornet.
It also gets a tinted windscreen and knuckle guards that come with built-in LED turn signals. Moreover, the CB200X also features a a raised handlebar, engine sump guard, and upswept exhaust as well a comfier split seat setup to complete its touring character. While the changes to the bodywork set it apart from its street bike version, the Honda CB200X offers the same list of features. It gets a full-LED headlamp, tail lamp and turn signals. Honda has also fitted it with a full-digital instrument cluster like the Hornet 2.0.
Powering the Honda CB200X is a 184cc, single-cylinder motor that it shares with the Hornet 2.0. This engine is capable of churning out 17.03bhp at 8,500rpm and 16.1Nm of peak torque at 6,000rpm. It comes mated to a five-speed gearbox.
Now the Honda CB200X is being positioned as a motorcycle that is capable for light off-road riding. However, the suspension hardware is the same as the one on the Hornet 2.0 with upside down forks and a monoshock. The braking hardware is also the same with 276mm disc up front and 220mm disc at the rear accompanied with a single-channel ABS. The only difference here are the tyres. The Honda CB200X’s 17-inch wheels are shod with block-pattern tyres at both ends unlike the road-biased tyres on the Hornet 2.0.
And while the Honda CB200X does not have any direct rivals, it will face competition from the Hero Xpulse 200.
