2021 Honda CB400F and CB400X

2021 Honda CB400F and CB400X have been unveiled in China at the Shanghai Car Display, and are envisioned to go on sale there by mid-2021

Japanese two-wheeler company Honda has formally uncovered the 2021 CB400F and CB400X at the ongoing Shanghai Automobile Demonstrate. The bikes will go on sale in the Chinese current market really quickly, as CKD imports via Wuyang Honda. The CB400F options a comparable style to the CB500F, but with a restyled LED headlamp that seems to be less intense.

Other apparent layout information on the CB400F incorporate a muscular fuel tank, break up seat, and built-in aero ducts on the fuel tank and tail part. The CB400F has a flat handlebar and centre-established footpegs, which should really give it a marginally intense riding placement. The bike has a kerb fat of 188kg, when its wheelbase is 1,416mm extended.

As for Honda CB400X, it is the lesser potential sibling of the CB500X. The style and design is quite very similar on the two bikes, preserve for the distinct headlamp. The raised handlebar, sculpted solitary-piece seat, muscular tank, adjustable windshield, and so forth, are the similar nevertheless, supplying the motorbike a suitable journey-tourer glance.

There is no word on whether or not these two bikes will make their way into the Indian market place, but it looks extremely not likely. The CB500X is currently on sale in India at Rs. 6.87 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi), so bringing in a CB400X at a marginally reduced cost point would not be a intelligent transfer. We do not count on the CB400F to get there in India, irrespective of no matter whether Honda launches the CB500F in our market.
