At the heart of X-Blade BSVI ticks Bharat Stage VI compliant Honda’s mid-size advanced 160cc PGM-FI NEWHET (Honda Eco Technology) engine. PGM-Fi is a system that uses 8 onboard sensors to constantly inject optimum fuel and air mixture to provide greater performance and superior efficiency.

Powered by the revolutionary HET (Honda Eco Technology), the long stroke engine is tuned to deliver extra torque and super mileage.
The high-performance Rear Mono Shock suspension is housed below the seat and mounted on the advanced tough and flexible diamond frame. It offers superior riding comfort and excellent stability.
The petal shape cut on the disc brake dissipates heat effectively which improves the overall braking efficiency. A combination of Front & NEW Rear* disc brakes provides effective braking and better control.
New Honda X-Blade BSVI comes equipped with ABS (Anti-lock braking system) that gives an enhanced braking performance on the roads.
The new Engine Stop Switch provides the convenience of turning-off the engine on brief stops with the flick of a switch.
Ensuring safety of riders in low visibility conditions is the Hazard switch that flashes indicator lights.
The Street-Tech digital meter comes with advance features- Gear Position Indicator (gives information about engaged gear in all road conditions), Digital Clock (shows time) and Service Due Indicator (informs when the vehicle requires service).
Being an all-rounder, the stylish X-Blade offers superior riding comfort and excellent stability. The 130mm wide rear tyre with hugger fender, long wheelbase(1347mm) enhance stability on bad roads and ensures comfort during longer rides.
A long (582mm) & wide (337mm) seat provides ample space for a comfortable long-distance traveling. It comes with seal chain which needs less frequent adjustments and low maintenance cost.
The all-new X-Blade is designed with precision to compliment the attitude of millennials and Generation-Z. Cut through the dark in style with Robo-faced LED headlamp while leaving a mark on your followers with the Razor-edged LED tail lamp. Adding sportier demeanor to X-Blade is the Aggressive Sculpted tank design and Dual Outlet Muffler.
