Honda CB200X Touring Motorcycle: Five Things to Know
Honda CB200X, the latest offering from the Japanese two-wheeler manufacturer’s teams, was launched yesterday in India. The bike is essentially to the Honda Hornet 2.0, what the Honda CB350RS is to the Honda H’ness CB350. What we’re trying to say is that the CB200X isn’t exactly an adventure bike, but it’s a rugged, tourer version of the Hornet 2.0. Anyway, now that the bike is available for retail sale in the country, we thought that many of you might be interested in the new Honda bike in India. In that case, here are five things you should know about the Honda CB200X.

The new Honda bike also comes equipped with finger guards with integrated LED turn signals, a raised exhaust, tank extensions, a split-lift seat, an LED tail light and block pattern tires. for better traction on not-so-smooth surfaces. The CB200X comes with a choice of three color options: Pearl Nightstar Black, Matte Selene, and Silver Metallic and Sports Red.
- Honda CB200X gets fully digital dashboard for basic readings; battery voltmeter; gear position indicator; an engine start switch; and a danger switch among others.
- The CB200X receives the same engine as the Hornet 2.0, i.e. an air-cooled 184cc engine mated to a five-speed gearbox. This engine also benefits from a fuel injection system with eight on-board sensors. On the performance side, the engine develops 16 hp with 16 Nm of maximum torque.
- The suspension setup includes inverted forks with mono-shock, while for braking it receives front and rear petal disc brakes with single-channel ABS.
