About X-Blade

Honda X-Blade is a street bike available at a starting price of Rs. 1,11,073 in India. It is available in 2 variants and 4 colours with top variant price starting from Rs. 1,15,464. The Honda X-Blade is powered by 162.71cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 13.67 bhp and a torque of 14.7 Nm. With front disc and rear drum brakes, Honda X-Blade comes up with anti-locking braking system. This X-Blade bike weighs 143 kg and has a fuel tank capacity of 12 liters.

The X-Blade is a sporty commuter based on Honda’s 160cc platform which also underpins the Unicorn and the CB Hornet 160R. These bikes share the same engine, which is a 163cc air-cooled, single-cylinder motor. It has been equipped with a fuel-injection system for BS6 compliance which resulted in a slight change in its power output.

The X-Blade comes equipped with an LED headlamp which boasts of a geometric design along with a compact LED tail lamp. The sharp and aggressive design of the X-Blade remained unchanged with the BS6 update. However, Honda added fresh set to decals to help it differ from the outgoing BS4 version. All the data is displayed on a fully-digital console while other features include an engine start/stop switch and a hazard switch.

For braking, it gets a 276mm petal disc up front with single-channel ABS and a 130mm drum setup for the rear. A rear disc brake is also available as an option. The motorcycle rides on 17-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels shod with 80/100-17 section tyre ahead and a 130/70-17 section one for the rear.

The Honda X-Blade BS6 is available in two variants – front disc and dual disc. In its segment, the motorcycle competes with the Yamaha FZ S V3, Suzuki Gixxer, TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Bajaj Pulsar NS160 and the new Hero Xtreme 160R.

Honda X-Blade Expert Opinion

  • Good Things

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

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

BikeWale's Take

The X-Blade is a Unicorn 160 in a sharper and futuristic-looking avatar and is aimed at a younger audience. While the bike gets an almost-flawless engine, the notchy gearbox holds it back. It could also do with slightly better brakes.

Honda X-Blade Review

160 is the new black. 

Introduction

Pros/Cons

+ A refined engine and free-revving engine, comfortable seating

- Notchy gearbox, false neutrals, cluttered instrumentation

 

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.

Quality

In true Honda fashion, the fit and finish of the X Blade is top notch. The fibre panels are of high quality and there is no sign of any rattle. Even the components like the rear tyre hugger, saree guard and the chain guard have been designed in keeping with the theme of the motorcycle. This specific bike features a matte green paint scheme, which perfectly complements the blacked out frame, engine, wheels and the exhaust. The dual-outlets in the exhaust might seem like an after-thought, but croons a sonorous and addictive sound track. 

Comfort

The wide handlebar, slightly rear-set footpegs and the low seat height make for an upright and comfortable riding position. The seat is wide and firm and you could spend long hours on it without tiring yourself out. Even the pillion seat is wide and comfortable. The tank also offers a good leverage for your thighs and is perfect for gripping onto it when you wish to get serious around corners.

Performance

The most remarkable aspect about the X Blade is the refinement. There are hardly any vibrations or signs of distress from the engine irrespective of how far or hard you push it. The exhaust note is muted while you are trundling around the city. However go past 4,500rpm and it gives out a loud and distinctive growl egging you to exploit the engine.

And exploit it, you will, for the X Blade feels so lively! A sizeable chunk of its torque is concentrated in the bottom end. The torque curve flattens out post the initial outburst, but it still manages to keep a smile on your face. Although the gearbox is notchy and plagued with false neutrals, the ratios are well spaced out. You could be trundling at 20kmph in the third gear in traffic without a word of complaint from the engine, and then hit triple digit speeds without an upshift.

The suspension is set up for a stiff ride, and things can get a little too bumpy for comfort, especially at the rear. However, the monoshock is adjustable for preload, tinkering with which should offer a more yielding ride. When it comes to handling, the wide handlebar offers good leverage to tip the bike in and the stiff suspension makes sure the bike doesn’t move around. This greatly helps your confidence when you chance upon a set of twisties. As for the brakes, the front disc offers a lovely initial bite and is backed up with good progression and stopping power. 

 

Technology

The X Blade gets a LED headlamp which gives the front end a distinctive look. It also gets a new fully-digital instrument cluster, which now shows the gear position. It even gets hazard lamps. The bummer is that the switchgear continues to miss out on the engine kill switch. In the interest of keeping it price competitive, Honda has skimped on the rear disc brake, CBS and ABS. We wish these had been offered at least as optional extras. 

Fitness of purpose

 

The seating triangle is comfortable and the engine is silky smooth, which makes spending time in traffic an effortless task. And given that the engine is borrowed from the Unicorn 160, there is no doubt that it will be light on your pocket too. Also, did I mention that it looks like a cyborg from Star Wars?

Our take

At Rs 80,161, the X Blade slots in perfectly between the Unicorn 160 and the Hornet. While the Unicorn 160 is a no-frills commuter bike, the Hornet is targeted at the executive crowd. The X Blade on the other hand, combines the best of what these two have to offer. And just like Grievous, the X Blade is a force to be reckoned with. The only problem I see is that there exists another bike, called the Suzuki Gixxer. Well, there is only one way to settle this, isn’t it?
