Honda, a pioneering motorcycle manufacturer in India, is preparing to unveil their first electric bicycle: the Honda X-Blade Electric. Said to provide a potential range of 200 kilometers with a single charge, and likely to be priced at approximately 2 lakh rupees, here’s a quick glance at its features and specs.
Power and Performance
Honda X-Blade Electric brings convenience to your rides with a 4500 watt motor for a seamless and responsive experience. Charging the 12 Kw battery to full capacity requires merely 7.5 hours if plugged into a standard outlet. Moreover, it features a regenerative braking system to help prolong its battery life by converting kinetic energy into electrical energy.
Not only that, but the bike can reach a maximum speed of 120 kmph and can cover a distance of 200 km on one full charge. Additionally, the X-Blade Electric offers three riding modes, Eco, City, and Sport, so riders can freely adjust power output according to the road conditions and their individual preferences.
Design and Features
With its ultra-modern design, the Honda X-Blade Electric is sure to turn heads on the road. It’s available in four aesthetically-pleasing colours: black, red, blue and silver. And with a halogen LED headlight, you not only get enhanced visibility, but a truly stunning look.
The bike’s digital instrument cluster gives you clear access to all necessary info including speed, battery level, range, navigation, mobile connectivity, service reminder, and more. Plus, you can control your tunes, calls and messages through its convenient infotainment system, which utilises Bluetooth connectivity.
Safety and Comfort
Boasting a robust chassis and suspension system for enhanced stability and comfort, the Honda X-Blade Electric is designed to make your ride smoother. Dual disc brakes provide powerful braking performance with added safety while anti-lock braking system (ABS) prevents wheel lock-up and skidding during sudden braking. Not only that, but with its comfortable seat, ergonomic handlebars and spacious storage compartment, the X-Blade Electric allows you to enjoy a relaxed riding posture and keep your must-haves close by.
Launch Date and Price
The Honda X-Blade Electric is expected to be launched in India soon, and will compete with other electric bikes such as Revolt RV400, Hero Electric Photon, Bajaj Chetak Electric, and TVS iQube Electric. The ex-showroom price of the bike is estimated to be around 2 lakh rupees, which makes it an affordable and eco-friendly option for Indian customers.
