Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India took the wraps off its new entry-level crossover, the Honda CB200X. it’s not a hard-core off-road motorcycle or a dual-sport bike, just like the Hero Xpulse 200, but is primarily a commuter bike, with tall stance, upright riding position, ADV-esque design and dual-sport block pattern tyres. Prices start at Rs 144,500 (ex-showroom). In India, it’ll go up against the Hero Xpulse, since that’s the sole motorcycle within the segment, having similar specifications and pricing. Deliveries of the motorcycle will begin in September 2021. Bookings for the motorcycle have begun also .
Like we said earlier, the Honda CB200X gets few design elements borrowed from adventure bikes, like the half-fairing and therefore the small windscreen. there’s a plastic engine bash-plate, standard knuckle guards on the handlebar and stepped seats. It gets a 184 cc single-cylinder engine, putting out 17 bhp at 8,500 rpm and 16.1 Nm of peak torque at 6,000 rpm and is paired to a 5-speed gearbox. it’s an equivalent unit because the one offered on Honda Hornet 2.0. The engine gets Honda’s programmed fuel injection system with 8 on-board sensors which constantly inject optimum fuel and air mixture for better efficiency and performance. Features include a single-channel ABS, a negative LCD instrument console along side a start-stop switch, hazard lamps, full LED lighting and petal disc brakes up front and at the rear.
The chassis is that the same unit because the Honda Hornet 2.0’s but just could feature suspension with slightly more travel, also as a typical engine bash plate. But to stay costs competitive, chassis, suspension and cycle parts might be very same specifications because the Honda Hornet 2.0. The motorcycle gets USD hand over front and a monoshock at the rear. Considering the CB200X gets 167 mm ground clearance, it should be enough for minor ‘soft-roading’ duties that the new bike are going to be designed to require on, along side the block pattern tyres. With a kerb weight of 147 kg, it should offer an honest package.
