Honda CB200X is compared to other entry-level adventure tourers like Xpulse 200, Royal Enfield Himalayan, and KTM 250 Adventure.
Honda India has today launched its new adventure motorcycle . It is built on the same platform as Hornet 2.0 and has the same powertrain. The new Honda CB200X will be available at Rs 1,44,500 ex-sh Gurgaon.
CB200X, like most entry-level adventure toursers, is road-biased and has moderate off-roading abilities. The CB200X, unlike other Honda adventure tourers like the CB500X or Africa Twin, will only be sold through the regular dealer network.
The new Honda CB200X features a similar all-LED V-shaped, angular headlamp to Hornet 2.0. The other highlights include a black windscreen and a front-heavy faired frame. New CB200X is available in three colours. These colours are Black, Silver, and Red.
The CX-02 Concept, which was revealed in India earlier this year, is the inspiration for most of the bike’s design cues. The bike’s tail section also features LED lamps. Split-style seats are available as well as split pillion grab bars. For longer commutes, the seats can be contoured to provide better comfort.
Features & Hardware
The bike features all-digital instrument clusters that are compatible with RoadSync tech, which allows for smartphone connectivity and navigation. It also has Bluetooth headphones. The front forks are the same as in Hornet 2.0 and have the same golden colour. It also features a high ground clearance, long-travel suspension and high saddle height.
It is built on the same hardware as Hornet. The platform is supported on upside-down forks in the front and a mono-shock at the rear. Both wheels will have disc brakes for braking.
Specifications for the Engine
For more grip on off-road riding, the wire-spoked 21 inch front and 17 inch rear wheels are equipped with knobby dual-purpose tires. CB200X uses the same 184.4cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine as Hornet 2.0. This motor can produce 17 bhp at 8500rpm, 16.1 Nm peak torque at 6000rpm, and is mated with a 5-speed gearbox.
Atsushi Okata, President & CEO of Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Private Limited. Ltd. stated, “Today it is my great pleasure, to introduce a motorcycle, inspired Honda’s legendary legacy CB.” The urban explorer – the CB200X is designed to inspire today’s youth and encourage them to travel more. CB200X is designed to be a fun riding companion for riders who want to explore the countryside and take short weekend trips beyond cities.
CB200X is the only competitor at this price and specification, Hero Xpulse 200. It will be interesting to find out if Honda offers CB200X an off-road kit similar to its closest competitor.

Scooter India and Honda Motorcycle took the wraps off the new entry-level crossover, Honda CB200X. The Honda CB200X is not a serious off-road bike or a dual-sport bike like the Hero Xpulse 200. It is primarily a commuter motorcycle with a tall stance and upright riding position. Prices start at Rs. 144,500 (except in the showroom). It will be competing against the Hero Xpulse in India because it has similar specifications and pricing. The motorcycle will be delivered in September 2021. The bookings for the motorcycle are also open.
The Honda CB200X borrows very few design elements from adventure bikes like the half-fairing or small windscreen. The plastic engine bash plate, standard knuckle protectors on the handlebar, and stepped seats are included. The single-cylinder engine is 184cc and produces 17 bhp at 8,500 RPM and 16.1 Nm peak torque at 6,600 RPM. It is paired with a 5-speed transmission. The same unit is used on Honda Hornet 2.0. Honda’s programmed fuel injector with 8 sensors onboard continuously injects the best fuel and air mixture to improve efficiency and performance. The engine features a single-channel ABS, an LCD instrument console with negative lighting, hazard lamps, full LED lighting, and petal disc brakes at the front and rear.
Although the chassis is identical to the Honda Hornet 2.0’s, it could have suspension with slightly more travel and a standard engine bashplate. To keep costs down, the chassis, suspension, and bike parts could all be identical to the Honda Hornet 2.0. The front suspension is USD and the rear monoshock is USD. The CB200X has a 167mm ground clearance. This should allow for the bike to handle minor’soft-roading duties. It should provide a decent package with a kerbweight of 147kg.
Upcoming Honda Model is Forza 350
