Honda NX500 customer deliveries delayed in India

The Honda NX500 was launched in January at Rs 5.90 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

Earlier this year, Honda launched the NX500 adventure bike in India. We have now learnt that customer deliveries have been significantly delayed. The keys to the first bikes are now expected to be handed over in October.

The exact reason for the delay is unclear though. Some reports suggest that deliveries have been pushed back due to logistics issues, while others claim that the delay is due to restrictions imposed by the government on imports from Thailand. Whatever the reason behind the delay, it seems those who booked the NX500 will have to wait at least till the end of this year.

The NX500 is the replacement for the CB500X. The bike is powered by a 471cc parallel-twin engine that makes 47 BHP @ 8,600 rpm and 43 Nm @ 6,500 rpm. The engine is paired with a 6-speed gearbox via a slipper clutch.

In India, the Honda NX500 is priced at Rs 5.90 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). It competes with the Benelli TRK 502 and Moto Morini X-Cape 650.
