Honda NX200 pic – probably the clearest is here – officially tested by the company! NX200 will be based on the Hornet 180!
Honda has already announced a new launch/unveil on 19 August in India. To build up the hype, it is sharing details in bits and pieces. In a latest, it has shared the third teaser video of the upcoming motorcycle.
In this 15 second video, the rear tyre and set-up is visible which is directly lifted from the Hornet 180 – the swingarm, Nissin disc brakes, footboard and lower part of the mudguard. This, along with the fact that, it features Hornet’s headlamp, is almost a clear giveaway of the basis of the upcoming model – that is expected to be called as NX200.
However, unlike the Hornet 180, the NX200 comes with block pattern tyres, suitable for its new application as an ADV.
Apart from this, Honda has also shared the front part of the motorcycle. It carries a half fairing with an upright front visor. There are golden colored upside down front forks that appear to be lifted from the streetfighter. However, we hope there is more travel for adventure riding. There is a dual tone shade of red and silver.
Coming to the motor, it will, in all probability, carry over the same 184.40 cc, single cylinder engine that is good for 12.7 KW (17.27 PS) of power at 8500 rpm and 16.1 Nm of torque at 6000 rpm. It will be interesting to see what changes will the ADV variant get.
