Honda CB200X vs RE Himalayan vs KTM 390 Adventure vs Xpulse 200
There has been a gap in the affordable adventure tourer motorbike segment in India for a long time. Things started to change when Royal Enfield introduced RE Himalayan. Initial batches have a lot of issues but most of them were sorted with newer versions. Another affordable option was introduced with Hero Xpulse 200. Both the RE Himalayan and Hero Impulse are more of an off-road performer than on the highway. The introduction of KTM 390 Adventure made it the first relatively affordable dual-purpose adventure tourer under INR 4 lakhs. It packs plenty of punch in terms of power and torque to be suitable for both off-road and highway touring. However, the price of 4 Lakh is still expensive for the millennial riders community. Honda went wrong with the pricing of the Honda CB500X. The CB200X is decently priced for its features and more than capable of occasional exploring and adventures.
With Honda introducing CB200X in India everything changes. It doesn’t pack the punch as RE Himalayan or the KTM 390 Adventure but it does a fantastic job for its price. It is packed with useful features that will help it perform decently well on highways as well as difficult roads. The design looks modern and aesthetic. It certainly is an attention grabber, especially with those turn-led mounted-on handguards and golden USD front forks.
FEATURES of HONDA CB200X
There are plenty of features on the new Honda CB200X which makes it an attractive choice. Here is a detailed list of features on the Honda CB200X.
The engine is derived from a 184.4 cc single-cylinder engine from Hornet 2.0. Talking about the performance, the Honda CB200X is powered by a PGM-Fi fuel-injected Air-cooled 4 stroke single-cylinder engine. The engine’s compression ratio is 9.5:1 and generates 17 hp @ 8,500 rpm with 16.1 N-m Torque at 6000rpm. The numbers are impressive for a sub 200cc bike and will help return a good mileage.
Honda CB200X features a tall sporty windscreen. The Visor is dark in color. A tall visor minimizes the wind buffeting and makes the highway rides more aerodynamic. The tall visor will also help in building road presence.
One of the most desired features for any off-road motorbike is a high exhaust to help navigate water streams in muddy trails. Honda CB200X comes with a sporty-looking up-swept exhaust that will keep the waters out of the engine system.
The CB200X has 167 mm ground clearance which is just average. For comparison, the KTM 390 Adventure comes with 200mm ground clearance and Pulsar 150 comes with 160mm clearance.
Fuel Tank Capacity
Honda CB200X has a 12L tank capacity. This should be enough to return a mileage well over 400Km with a full tank.
The mileage of CB200X is around 40-50km per liter of petrol. It carries the same engine as Honda Hornet 2.0.
CB200X comes with a bash protector under-cowl. It is made up of high-density plastic and can take occasional bumps.
The Honda CB 200X sports alloy wheel on both front and rear. The alloy wheels come with Y-shaped spokes for better dual sports performance.
The motorcycle comes with an LED lighting system. The front as well as X-shaped tail lamps carry LED bulbs for better illumination and life-cycle. The turn indicators are also fully LED. There is also a dedicated Hazard switch.
Knuckle Guards with winkers
The clutch and brakes come covered with factory-loaded knuckle guards. These hand protectors have integrated LED turn indicators which grabs a lot of attention. A fresh design is always a welcome signal.
The seating on CB200X is split and double-leveled. This provides an ergonomic riding comfort for both pillion and riders.
USD golden front fork
BMW and TVS introduced golden forks in their tourers. The addition of Upside Down Golden Front Forks in Honda CB200X invites a premium feel with a comfortable ride. Surprisingly the more expensive and powerful CB500X does not come with USD forks.
Fully digital LCD
The digital instrument cluster is fully LCD and contains detailed trip and information about time, fuel range, gear ratio, rpm, and speed.
Raised handlebars on Honda CB200X will help in better offroading capability. The added height of handlebars means easy maneuvering while riding in a standing position especially while off-roading.
Key on tank
The ignition keyholder lock is placed on the tank. This ensures easy access.
Dual petal discs with ABS
Honda CB200X comes with single-channel ABS and sports petal discs on both front and rear wheels for efficient braking.
At 147 KG it is significantly lighter than RE Himalayan or the KTM 390 Adventure. It is even lighter than the Xpulse 200.
Dual-purpose tread pattern. It sports a 110/70-17 inch front tire and a wide 140/70-17 inch rear tire.
There are three color options for Honda CB200X. Sports Red, Pearl Night Star Black, and Matt Selene Silver Metallic.
Honda CB200X is priced at INR 1,44,000 ex-showroom.
