Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India has launched the BS6 Honda X-Blade, with prices starting at ₹ 1.05 lakh (ex-showroom, Noida). The motorcycle will be available in two variants, one with a single disc up front and the other with a disc brake up front and at the rear as well. Targeted at young buyers, the new X-Blade gets a host of styling updates along with a BS6 compliant engine. The robo-faced LED headlamp is new and so is the LED tail lamp. The fuel tank is new too and gets a muscular, sculpted design. The motorcycle also gets a dual-outlet exhaust as well. Other bits which accentuate the sporty demeanour of the motorcycle are new graphics, wheel stripes, split grab-rails, sporty looking covers for the front forks and sides and a link-type gear shifter.
 
Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Director - Sales & Marketing, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. said, "The new X-Blade BS6 is inspired by the dreams of success oriented young enthusiasts. The generation which aspires to 'Look Beyond' will find it hard to resist Honda's globally acclaimed superior technology, new features like dual petal disc brakes with ABS, Engine Stop Switch and new dynamic stripe design of the new X-Blade BS6."
 
The engine on the X-Blade also gets heavily updated. The 160 cc engine now gets programmed fuel injection that uses eight on-board sensors that constantly inject optimum air and fuel mixture that offers better performance and efficiency. The engine also gets a counter-balancer along with Honda Eco Technology, reducing vibrations and offering smoother power delivery along with better acceleration. The engine makes 13.67 bhp at 8,000 rpm while the peak torque output is rated at 14.7 Nm coming in at 5,500 rpm. The engine is paired to a 5-speed gearbox like before. The single disc variant weighs 143 kg while the dual disc variant is a kg heavier (kerb weight).
 
In terms of cycle parts, the motorcycle is suspended on telescopic forks up front and the rear gets a monoshock unit. The X-Blade BS6 is built around a flexible diamond frame. The front end gets a 276 mm petal disc along with a single-channel ABS while the rear gets a 220 mm disc or a 130 mm drum. New features include a digital instrument console, hazard lamps and an engine kill-switch. The seat itself is a new unit. It is 582 mm long and 337 mm wide and Honda says it offers a comfortable perch during long commutes.
 
The 160 cc premium commuter segment is ripe with new and updated models. The Honda X-Blade BS6 will go up against the newly launched Hero Xtreme 160R, TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Bajaj Pulsar NS160 and the Suzuki Gixxer 155.
