The boxer engine is now Euro 5-compliant and makes 109 HP and 116 Nm.
The announcement will put to rest all speculations surrounding the launch of the motorcycle.
While the engine is all-new, says Honda, it is also Euro 5-compliant and is mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
Discussions about the project are currently underway says Honda Motorcycle India Head Atsushi Ogata.
Just a few additional equipment like a windscreen and auxiliary lights seem enough for the bike to become an able tourer.
The electric vehicle maker says it will buy the 450X scooter back after three years of usage for Rs. 85,000/-.
