The design statement of the Honda X-Blade has a front stance with a futuristic segment first LED headlamp giving a very robotic impression. X-Blade promises a brighter light throw than standard halogen lamps. A 9 LED position lamp setup ensures that the X-Blade stands out of the crowd. Adding to the sophisticated look are razor edged LED tail lamp and high rigidity sculpted fuel tank.
