After months of speculations, Honda X-Blade finally makes its way to the streets of Nepal. It is another latest addition from Honda in 160cc category, which is already dominated by CB Unicorn and CB Hornet. However, it sits well between CB Unicorn and Hornet in terms of performance and price, borrowing characteristic from both motorcycles. Syakar Trading Company, the authorized dealer of Honda products, has set Honda X-Blade price in Nepal is Rs. 2,85,900.
X-Bladeis powered by a single cylinder SI engine with 162.71 cc displacement. It gives out a max power of 14.12PS at 8500rpm and max torque of 13.9Nm at 6000rpm. Another list of the specification is very similar to its CB siblings, though this one misses out on both CBS and ABS. For now, it is only available in a single variant with brakes on the front disc.
In comparison, X-Blade is equipped with new visual changes like street-tech digital meter, wide seats, dual outlet muffler, new razor-edged LED lights, wide tires, and durable seal chain. Honda has included a hazard switch onboard, and the display meter comes with a gear position indicator. All in all, it’s aggressive, sporty, and muscular design makes it perfect for the youths.
Honda X-Blade is available in five different colors: Silver, Red, Green Metallic, Blue Metallic, and Black.

The unique design gives a breath of fresh air to a typical motorcycle design. Inspired from “Razor Sharp” theme, every panel and texture looks sharp and futuristic. This will be one of its main selling points. There isn’t much to say about the engine, you can expect similar performance as its siblings. It gives best of both worlds, being an excellent bike for commute while maintaining a sporty look.
But each Honda motorcycle suffers from this one problem; lack of Engine Kill Switch. Honda went out of its way to include Hazard Switch on the new bike but still reluctant to include an engine kill switch. Either Honda refuses to listen to its fan or they are waiting to release it in the future variants. Whichever the case, we would like to see Honda include an engine kill switch in our lifetime.
