Nice looking bike with good features but lacking ABS and rear disc brake. Probably, Honda rushed the launch to avoid the mandatory ABS stipulation which comes into effect from 1.4.2018. The LED headlamp is a good addition. I may have to wait for the Hornet 160 which is expected to come with ABS and rear disc brake.

The bike rides on 5-spoke alloy wheels finished in black.

The X-Blade is powered by a 162.71 cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that produces 13.93 BHP @ 8,500 rpm and a peak torque of 13.9 Nm @ 6,000 rpm and comes paired with a 5-speed transmission. Braking is handled by a 276 mm petal type disc at the front and a 130 mm drum at the rear.

Here is the Zigwheels review of the X-Blade. The bike looks smashing to say the least. However, Honda has been stingy on equipment and that's why it is cheaper than Hornet 160. A stylish no nonsense commuter by Honda.
