Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) is going to launch its most affordable ADV in the country today that is rumored to arrive as the NX200. The company registered the said name a few days back and since then, speculations of a 200cc adventure tourer have been floating in the air. The said model would come based on the Hornet 2.0 – a motorcycle that bridges the gap between the 150cc and 200cc segment with its 184cc heart. The company has already dropped multiple teaser videos of the motorcycle revealing some details. Broadly speaking, the Honda NX200 adopts the same design and styling philosophy of its elder sibling – the CB500X and hence, the former will also be a soft-roader and not a hardcore off-roader.

Upfront, the bike gets the same angular-shaped all-LED headlamp and in fact, the entire lighting system is all-LED. The bike will also get USD forks upfront along with bits like dual-purpose tyres, tinted visor and also, an engine cowl. Now, coming to one of the most important bits, as already mentioned, the Honda NX200 will be powered by the same 184cc, single-cylinder engine that produces 17 hp of power and 16 Nm of torque on the Hornet 2.0.
These figures are also expected to be the same on the NX200 and transmission will likely be a five-speed unit as well. Talking of the expected price, the soon-to-be-launched Honda NX200 would be priced very well over Rs 1.5 lakh (ex-showroom), considering the fact that its streetfighter counterpart is currently priced at Rs 1.31 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Once launched, the new Honda NX200 will primarily rub shoulders against the likes of Hero XPulse 200, Royal Enfield Himalayan, and also, the KTM 250 Adventure to some extent. More details soon, so keep watching this space.
