Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India have launched the all-new CB200X in India. The pricing for the CB200X is Rs 1.44 lakh (ex-showroom, Gurugram). Bookings for the motorcycle has begun on Honda’s official website, and deliveries of the bike will commence from September 2021.
Powering the CB200X is a 184.4cc two-valve, SOHC, air-cooled single-cylinder engine. It produces 17bhp and 16.1Nm of torque and is paired to a 5-speed gearbox. Furthermore, the brand offers customers Honda’s 6-year warranty package (3 years standard + 3 years optional extended warranty*) on CB200X to improve the ownership experience.
Suspension and Brakes
The suspension of the CB200X is a USD fork in the front and a mono-shock suspension for the rear. Unfortunately, no other details of the suspension are stated, so we cannot confirm if the mono-shock rear suspension is adjustable. In terms of braking, the CB200X offers Petal Disc Brakes (Front & Rear) with ABS. Additionally, to enhance the bike’s off-road capabilities, it comes as standard with Tough Tread Pattern Tyres (Front 110mm & Rear 140mm).
Honda offers the CB200X with plenty of features such as all-LED headlights and taillights, a hazard switch and turn indicators mounted on the knuckle guards. A large windscreen, upswept exhaust and under-cowl help it resemble its sibling, which is the CB500X. Additionally, a fully digital LCD instrument cluster is on offer, which provides several key information such as the gear level indicator, service due indicator and battery voltmeter. This screen’s brightness level can be adjusted with 5-levels.
The CB200X faces competition from two other motorcycles that are inclined towards this design style, the Hero Xpulse 200 and the KTM 250 Adventure. However, it must be mentioned that the KTM 250 Adventure does cost significantly more than the CB200X, and its 250cc engine does have more power and a better cubic capacity.
Moving on to the Xpulse 200 and compared to the CB200X, it does offer a genuine off-road capability and is priced much lower at Rs 1.21 lakh ex-showroom.
