History: HONDA X Blade was first launched in December, 2018 in India. In Bangladesh, the launch date was done with a two-day event in the International Convention City, Bashundhara in 13-14 December of 2019. Bikers of the country received this bike with a great joy at the launch of this new bike.
Features: Being a sports commuter from HONDA, the most special thing about HONDA X Blade is not the engine or the spec figures, but the way it looks. Because the engine is the same as the HONDA CB Hornet 160R and the changes are in dimentions and ergonomics. Ever since its first global display, its robotic headlamp caught the attention of everyone, so did its full digital speedometer which comes directly from Honda CBR150R Indonesian Edition.
The headlights and taillights are both completely LED. There is Automatic Headlight On (AHO) feature along with Hazard Lights. The bike has a dual-port exhaust system with chrome tip that gives a throaty sound. The stance is upright and the bike has a long visor to aid the looks of a sports tourer. The seat is long and comfortable.
The colors available for HONDA X Blade are all very attractive. Currently, the honda x blade colors in Bangladesh are:
- Pearl Spartan Red
- Pearl Igneous Black
- Matte Marshal Green Metallic
- Matte Marvel Blue Metallic
This bike has a muscular stance aided by wide tyres and a big muffler all of which increases the presence of the bike. The X- shaped taillight is also a charm to look at. The beautiful decals on the stylish panels leave a trace on the onlookers’ minds even long after you whizzed past them.
