Honda CB200X launched at Rs 1.44 lakh

Honda has launched the CB200X at Rs 1.44 lakh.

  • It uses the Hornet 2.0’s engine

  • Equipped with a USD fork

  • Features block pattern tyres

2021 Honda CB200X: engine

The Honda CB200X is based on the company’s Hornet 2.0 and as a result it uses the 184.4cc, single-cylinder engine, unlike what the 200 in the name might suggest. This simple two-valve, SOHC, air-cooled engine makes 17.3hp and 16.1Nm of torque, which is the same as that of the Hornet 2.0. Paired to this gearbox is a five-speed gearbox that we found smooth and light on the Hornet 2.0.

2021 Honda CB200X: suspension and brakes

Like the Hornet 2.0, the CB200X uses a USD fork and monoshock for suspension, and while the company has not revealed any special details, it is likely that this suspension will have the same travel as on the Hornet 2.0. 

The brakes also remain identical and it gets the same wavy discs at both ends. What this means is that the CB200X also gets just single-channel ABS. While the bike has the same 17-inch alloy wheels at both ends, Honda has opted to switch out the tyres for more block pattern ones on the CB200X.

2021 Honda CB200X: features

The CB200X uses all-LED lighting and has its front turn indicators mounted on the knuckle guards. The design is inspired by the CB500X and the bike has a fairly large windscreen and belly pan that appears to be fit for the purpose. Components like the split-seats and mirrors appear identical to ones on the Hornet 2.0. Another big similarity comes in the form of digital instrumentation with a negative LCD display with five levels of adjustable brightness, two trip meters, a battery voltage meter and a gear-position indicator.

2021 Honda CB200X: dimensions

The CB200X has a kerb weight figure of 147kg, this makes it  5kg heavier than the bike it's based on. The ground clearance, meanwhile, is the same at 167mm. Seat height is 810mm, while the fuel tank capacity is the same 12-litres as the Hornet 2.0

2021 Honda CB200X: price and competition 

At Rs 1.44 lakh, the Honda CB200X costs Rs 14,000 more than the Hornet 2.0 (Rs 1.30 lakh) that it is based on. It would appear that the price difference is largely for the design differences and the Honda CB200X is mechanically more or less the same as the Hornet 2.0.

As far as competition goes, the closest rival would be the Hero Xpulse 200, but that bike has genuine off-road capability and is priced much lower at Rs Rs 1.21 lakh ex-showroom. 

The CB200X has a 6-year warranty package (3 years standard + 3 years optional extended warranty).

All prices, ex-showroom, Gurugram.
