Global Debut of New Honda CB150X Adventure Touring Motorcycle


Like CB200X, the CB150X is an ADV motorbike on paper with no mechanical accreditations to aid its off-roading capacities. It continues the similar design language of the X line of ADVs from the Japanese bike maker. Honda has even given CB150X a bash plate to secure the engine bay and protect it from any damage. The looks of the CB150X are pretty similar to CB200X although it gets a more sophisticated powertrain and a higher riding height.

In contrast with the CB200X, the CB150X gets a marginally lower seat height of 805 mm which is 817 mm in comparison to CB200X. Additionally, the general ground clearance is higher at 181 mm which is 14 mm higher than CB200X. For slowing down, the bike utilizes similar single circle brakes at the two finishes supplemented by ABS.

Compared to CB200X, the tank covers in Honda CB150X are designed to be practical which also shield the bike’s radiator from any waste. The bike offers an upstanding seating stance with a turned in straight line handlebar and focus set footpegs which should bring about open to riding ergonomics, in this manner flaunting its touring DNA. Other styling features incorporate a tall windscreen, a single-piece saddle, a raked-up tail area, an upswept side-on exhaust, and a wider and bolder gas tank.
