Honda xBlade 160 Review
Honda is going to unleash another beast in the market of Bangladesh though it will take time to get available of the bike. The name of the bike is Honda xBlade. It is a 160 cc sports bike which is fully naked. Most of the features of the bike are still unknown but as soon as it will launch in India, we will collect the information for our country.
Basically, Honda is the most oldest and most reputed motorcycle manufacturer in the World and their products used to participate in every season of MotoGP competition. They have also won the several title of the tournament. So, there will be no question about the quality of the brand. Besides, it is a Japanese brands but now some of their product used to assemble in India.
In recent time, there are some new products of Honda are available in Bangladesh named Honda CB150 Exmotion, Honda CB Hornet 160R etc. Both products are very popular in the country. Specially Honda CB Hornet has launched in Bangladesh couple of days ago with big ceremony and after that people are getting crazy about the bike. So, hopefully XBlade will also get more popularity than CB Hornet.
Basically the speciality of Honda xBlade is it’s most attractive and aggressive lookings along with some most digital features. In Bangladesh, right now there are just few 160 cc bikes are available and so with the release of XBlade in the country, the competitor will increase. Let’s check the details of the bike Honda XBlade below.
Design & looks: Honda xBlade is a most attractive and dashing looking 160 cc bike. It has full unique body design with aggressive shape. There is not splitted seat but rear position of the seat is quite higher. There is attractive exhaust and rear tyre has an attractive tyre guard. There is no engine guard attached which has sporty handlebar and front headlamp. Overall, the bike would be one of the most attractive naked sports bike in Bangladesh.
Engine performance: Honda xBlade is a 160 cc naked sports bike officially but it’s actual displacement is 162.71 cc. The engine is air cooled instead of liquid cooled. It can generate 13.93 Bhp max power in 8500 rpm. Besides, the max torque is 13.90 Nm in 6000 rpm. However, the engine of the bike is BS4 added which fuel system is carburettor. Due to the good combination of power and torque, it’s top speed would be good.
Dimensions & seating position: Honda xBlade is a full standard bike and so, it’s dimension would fill up the every requirements. Officially we yet to learn it’s dimension but the bike’s kerb weight is 140 kg. It has 12 litres capacity fuel tank. Seating position of the bike is not so sporty but can compare with stylish standard bike. One pillion can ride on the bike easily. It has wide tyres and overall the bike is sharp styling.
Suspension & Brakes: Honda company should use both hydraulic disc brake into the bike but they do not. The rear brake is 130 mm drum where front brake is hydraulic disc which is 276 mm single. Basically the combination of disc and drum brake is much safer the dual hydraulic disc for the amteur people. So, brake would be sufficient. However, the front suspension of the bike is telescopic and rear suspension is monoshock. Both wheels are alloy which are 17 inch each.
Mileage: Honda xBlade has been used BS4 engine and so, it’s mileage would be as expected as one of the 160 cc bike. Reportedly the average mileage would not less than 47 km. It will increase on highway hopefully.
Instrument Panel & Features: The instrument console of the bike Honda xBlade is fully digital. It has all digital speedometer and digital tachometer. Trip meter, odometer, fuel gauge, gear indicator and service reminded all features are digital. Besides, it has pass light switch but there is no engine kill switch. Headlamp and taillamp all are LED.
Colors & Price: Honda xBlade is yet to available in Bangladesh and also the bike is not available in India. So, we do not know the price range of the bike. But hopefully the price would be around BDT 2,00,000 in Bangladesh. There are almost five different colors of the bike would be available but all of them may not come to Bangladesh. The expected colors are Metallic Blue, Silver Metallic, Red and Black.
Honda xBlade 160 Rating
Honda xBlade is undoubtedly a good looking bike which is going to available in Bangladesh market. It is a Japanese brand product but the bike would assemble in India. It has very aggressive looks and features are updated. Consists of BS4 engine, the bike can provide better mileage considering the same segment bike. Besides, it’s brand value, customer service all will be satisfying. Let’s hope for reasonable price.
