Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India (HMSI) has launched the 'NX500' adventure tourer through the Completely Built-Up (CBU) route, priced at INR 5.9 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi). The All-New Honda NX500 is offered in three colour schemes - Grand Prix Red, Matte Gunpowder Black Metallic, and Pearl Horizon White.

The NX500, short for 'New X-over', inherits popular traits while introducing new styling elements and a range of upgrades. Crafted for adventure enthusiasts, it promises better experience across diverse terrains, from winding roads to gravel trails and long-distance journeys.

Equipped with a new 5-inch full-colour TFT screen, the motorcycle features customisable displays, IOS/Android smartphone connectivity, turn-by-turn navigation, and an emergency stop signal feature for enhanced safety.

Powering the NX500 is a 471cc, liquid-cooled, 4-stroke DOHC engine with a parallel-twin layout. Delivering 35kW power at 8,600rpm and 43Nm peak torque at 6,500rpm, the motorcycle ensures an enjoyable performance with a zippy top end. The assist/slipper clutch and switchable HSTC system further enhance the riding experience, managing rear wheel traction on various terrains.

The adventure tourer features a steel diamond-tube mainframe, ensuring an optimal balance between lightweight design and structural rigidity. Equipped with 19-inch front and 17-inch rear trail-pattern radial tyres, Showa front forks, Pro-Link mono-suspension, and dual-channel ABS, the NX500 promises better comfort on both on-road and off-road journeys.

Tsutsumu Otani, Managing Director, President & CEO, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India, said, 'This modern street adventure motorcycle is a testament to our unwavering commitment to innovation and offers pure riding thrill. With its daily crossover design, premium technology & lively twin-cylinder engine, the NX500 is set to redefine the riding experience of customers and celebrate the spirit of adventure on two-wheels.'

Yogesh Mathur, Director, Sales and Marketing, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India, highlighted the introduction of the NX500 to the Indian market, just three months after its global debut at EICMA 2023. He stated, 'As we embark on this exciting journey, we are confident that the NX500 will surely excite the ADV buyers in India. The bookings for the NX500 are now open at our premium BigWing dealerships, and its deliveries will begin from next month onwards.'
