The motorcycle will be powered by a 200cc single-cylinder air-cooled motor.
It was recently speculated that Honda has been developing a new 200cc motorcycle platform. Now, a picture featuring a 200cc off-road/adventure Honda motorcycle has surfaced online that is expected to rival the XPulse 200.
The motorcycle in the picture gets a 21-inch front wheel and an 18-inch rear wheel. A long-travel suspension doing the duty at the front and a monoshock at the rear. Just like the Hero Xpulse 200, this motorcycle sits on a single downtube frame as well.
In order to keep the bike cost-effective, Honda might follow a simple and minimalistic approach with this bike. It doesn’t want to go with high specs, as it wants to be a part of volumes game in the segment. This motorcycle is likely to be launched by 2022, and could be the first motorcycle launch from its new 200cc platform.
Engine duties will be undertaken by a 200cc single-cylinder air-cooled fuel-injector motor mated to a five-speed gearbox. The power figures are likely to be as close to the Xpulse 200. Honda has taken the CRF design approach to this motorcycle.
