Honda launched in India the new CB200X, its adventurous 184cc crossover motorcycle, based on the ‘naked’ Hornet 2.0, to fight in the small-displacement adventurers segment.

The CB200X is an ideal motorcycle for day-to-day use, as it allows proper use in the city, and weekend getaways, facing dirt and gravel roads.

The main highlights of the new bike are: upright and comfortable riding position, high and wide handlebars, aerodynamic windshield, handguards with integrated turn signals, and dual purpose tires.


The Honda CB200X has a very aggressive design, with muscular lines and well defined angles. There is good protection with fairings, and the sides resemble those of the CB500X model.

Another highlight in the design is the presence of hand protectors (Knuckle Covers), which have built-in LED indicators, which make the bike look even more adventurous.

Finally, the design is complemented with windshield (the company says it’s tall), under cowl, gold inverted front suspension and 5Y-shaped alloy wheels.

Engine and gearbox

The engine of the 2022 Honda CB200X is the same as the ‘naked’ Hornet 2.0, that is, a 184.4 cm³ single cylinder, air cooled and with electronic fuel injection PGM-FI, capable of generating up to 12.7kW (17 HP) of maximum power at 8,500 rpm and 16.1Nm (1.62 kgfm) of torque at 6,000 rpm.

According to the company, the PGM-Fi system uses built-in sensors to constantly inject optimal fuel and air mixture to deliver greater performance and superior efficiency.
