Small 190cc ADV – 2020 Honda CBF190X Launched in China

Honda CBF190X price in China is slightly higher than other 190s it sells there. It is a small capacity smart looking ADV. We discuss its details…

Honda has a big lineup of 190cc models in China which it retails under the ‘CB’ moniker. Among them is the CBF 190X which is an entry level Adventure motorcycle first introduced in 2016.

The new baby CBF is more of a road going adventure machine and comes equipped with a 184.4 cc, single cylinder 2 valve engine. It is capable of producing 16.86 PS of peak power at 8000 rpm and 16.3 Nm of max torque at 7000 rpm.

It appears to have higher travel upside down front suspension and a rear monoshock. It is mounted on a half-faired, smart looking body. In place of the underbelly exhaust of the older version, the 2020 CBF 190X gets a conventional side mounted exhaust canister. There is a transparent windshield to protect from wind blasts along with an engine protector.

Since this is more of an on-road ADV, Honda is offering it with alloy wheels and what look like road tyres. It has a fuel tank capacity of 12 liters and weighs 149 kilos. Petal disc brakes at both ends are aided by Antilock Braking System (ABS). There is a digital cockpit which displays info along with the gear position.

This 190 platform is China specific and we do not think there are any chances of this 190X to coming to our shores. However, considering India’s growing penchant towards ADVs, Honda India could develop something similar for our market – either from the scratch or on any of the existing platforms…
