Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) has silently revised the price of its middleweight adventure motorcycle, the Honda CB500X. The motorcycle has received a price cut of ₹ 1.08 lakh and is currently offered at ₹ 5.79 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) whereas, it was initially launched in March 2021 at ₹ 6.87 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Interestingly, a few months ago, Honda updated its 500 cc line-up in Europe, including the CB500X. The updated model is expected to be launched in India this year, and the recent price cut could be because Honda wants to exhaust the existing stock before the updated model arrives.
The Honda CB500X comes to India as completely knocked down (CKD) units and is assembled at the company local facility. The motorcycle is also sold via the company’s premium dealership network, the HondaBig Wing. The bike is currently available in two colour options – Grand Prix Red and Matte Gunpowder Black Metallic.
