price of its brand new 160 cc sporty motorcycle X-Blade. Showcased for the first time at Auto
Expo, the stylish X-Blade is priced attractively at Rs. 78,500 (Ex-showroom, Delhi).
The design statement of X-Blade has a commanding front stance with a futuristic segment first
LED headlamp giving Robotic impression to the machine. X-Blade promises a brighter light throw
than standard halogen lamps. A 9 LED position lamp setup ensures that the X-Blade stands out
of the crowd. Adding to the sophisticated look are razor edged LED tail lamp and high rigidity
sculpted fuel tank. That’s not all, while a sharply designed grab rail increases the aggression of the
rear, a rear tyre hugger fender protects the underbody from mud accumulation. A dual outlet
muffler with a chrome tip has been used to add to the sporty look.

of performance and efficiency. Producing 13.93 bhp at 8,500 rpm and peak torque of 13.9 Nm at
6,000 rpm X-Blade also promises faster acceleration and better load carrying capacity. The engine
has been specifically designed to deliver good low and mid-range performance.
Balancing sportiness with practicality, X-Blade has been fitted with a link type gear shifter for
precise and smooth shifts. A wide 130 mm rear tyre and mono shock rear suspension
promises better handling while cornering. Being an all-rounder the stylish X-Blade also focuses on
comfort and safety with a long seat, seal chain and hazard switch. A street tech digital meter
increases convenience with presence of a service due indicator, digital clock and a gear position
