After the floodgates opened for 165 cc motorcycles in Bangladesh Honda became very serious to grab their market share in the 160cc segments. They already launched Honda CB Hornet 160R in Bangladesh & now they are also making plans to introduce this two 160cc bikes in Bangladesh in the near future.
During the three days event at Dhaka Bike Show 2018 BHL will organize Test Ride event for Honda CB Hornet 160R. Also on Friday there will be an event where many Honda Hornet 160R users will come and have a small get together.
Honda CB Unicorn160
Honda CB Unicorn 160 is a commuting motorcycle from Honda. It carries the same 163cc engine from Honda CB Hornet 160R but it produces 13.8 BHP & 13.9 NM of Torque. CB Unicorn 160 gets 240mm front disc brake, 130mm rear drum brake (with optional CBS), 110 section rear tyre, telescopic front suspensions, hydraulic rear monoshock suspension, both kick & self starter motor, full digital speedometer.
Looking at the overall bike, they didn’t go for any aggressive design for this motorcycle. They wanted to build a 160cc commuting motorcycle. They concentrated this bike for the people who are more concern about mileage & comfort rather than performance.
Honda X Blade
Launched at Indian Auto Expo 2018, this is a game changer. For many years Honda didn’t gave us any GOOD LOOKING bikes. They changed that trend with Honda Livo, then with CB Hornet160R, Honda CBR150R & they carried that good momentum at Honda X Blade.
It has a Optimus Prime like full LED headlight, speedometer borrowed straight from Honda CBR150R, duel outlet muffler, LED tail lamp, sharp design fuel tank, 130 section rear tyres. & rear mud guard as standard.
The bike carries the same engine which we have seen in Honda CB Hornet160R & again here they detune the power output, matted with a 5 speed gearbox the engine will produce 13.9BHP & 13.9 NM of Torque.
It is a 110 cc scooter from Honda which we believe will be launch in Bangladesh sometime this year. The scooter is unisex & it weighs 103 kg. It has tubeless tyres & most important of all it carries CBS braking system. The engine of the scooter produces 8 BHP. Dio was first displayed at SIAM Indo Bangla Automotive Show & we believe that if it is launch in Bangladesh it will be a hot cake.
Bangladesh Honda Pvt Ltd didn’t reveal any updates on when they will launch these two bikes in Bangladesh neither they revealed anything about the price. We are expecting this two bikes to come in Bangladesh as soon as early 2019 but if we get any updates then we will reveal to the BikeBD lovers in Bangladesh.
