Honda X blade problems:
Honda is a very well known brand for the global market, all the bikes have made an impact on the billions of hearts all over the world. These mentioned problems are based on the bikers who drive the all-new Honda X blade. So, all these Honda X blade problems can be discussed before buying new Honda X blade.
The all-new Honda X blade comes with a 276 mm Front disc ONLY. Yes, it doesn’t provide Rear disc as an option. If the company is not providing Rear Disc then how can we think about the ABS (Anti-lock braking system). While other rivals of the 160cc segment have the options of the Rear disc at least.
Engine Kill switch:
It seems that Honda has some kind of grudge against the Engine kill switch. Even in 100cc segment, many Automakers are providing engine kill switch but Honda doesn’t provide it even in its 160cc bike. It is very annoying to wind the Key again & again to switch off the engine.
The all-new Honda X blade comes with a 160cc Air cooled engine. “Seriously” all the competitors are providing at least oil cooling in 160cc engines but Honda is compensating these things by lowering the Power delivery of bikes.
Honda X blade price & rivals:
The Japanese manufacturer has launched the Honda X blade at the Price of INR 78,500 (Ex-showroom, New Delhi). Overall in this price segment, it is a very competitive bike for remainaing 160cc segment bikes.
