Honda CB… | Is there a sub 200cc UK motorcycle market?

Honey, I shrunk the CB500X! With a freshly unveiled Honda CB200X for India adding to a popular small-capacity ~200cc two-wheeled market, we ponder if the bite-size adventurer could be a hit in other countries – like the UK. 

Last week Honda showed the first official details of the CB200X, something that was initially touted as a model derived from the Hornet range at a (quite frankly) ludicrously cheap price point – ₹144,500.00 or £1,420. 

Yep, that’s right, under £2,000 for a baby Honda adventurer. Outrageous!

As quoted in RideApart, Atsushi Ogata, acting Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India Managing Director and CEO, said “It is my great pleasure to introduce a new motorcycle, inspired by Honda’s legendary CB legacy. CB200X gives today’s youngsters a riding experience that pushes them to explore more. It offers a perfect riding companion for their daily city rides and short weekend getaways beyond the cityscapes.”
