- Available in two colour options
- Retains the design and features of its predecessor
- Uses 399cc, twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine
Honda has introduced the 2020 iteration of the CB400X in the Japanese market. The 2020 model carries forward the same design as its predecessor. The colour palette, however, has been updated and the 2020 Honda CB400X is now available in Matte Ballistic Black Metallic and Pearl Glare White options. Styling updates also include red accents and subtle camouflage themed patterns to the body panels.
The feature list continues to comprise of full-LED lighting, adjustable windscreen, semi-fairing design, fully-digital instrument cluster and a twin-barrel exhaust. The hardware on the 2020 model, similar to its predecessor, comprises of telescopic forks at the front and a mono-shock at the back to perform the suspension duties. Anchoring power comes from petal-type discs on both wheels while the safety net includes a dual-channel ABS.
Mechanical specifications include a 399cc, twin-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that produces 45.3bhp of maximum power at 9,000rpm and 38Nm of peak torque at 7,500rpm. The motor is linked to a six-speed transmission that benefits from a slipper clutch mechanism.
The 2020 Honda CB400X is currently available in the Japanese market. It’s highly unlikely to reach the Indian market anytime soon. Meanwhile, Honda is updating its Indian product portfolio to comply with the newest emission norms. The company has already launched the BS6-compliant Activa 6G, Activa 125, Dio, Grazia 125, Unicorn, Shine, SP125 and CD110 while the updated Livo and X-Blade are expected to arrive very soon.
