Honda’s AirBlade160 steps up

Who said riding a scooter has to be bland and boring? Set to be launched in the Philippines is the All-New AirBlade160, featuring a powerful and step-up performance, with sleek design that’s all sorts of exciting. The ride will be available to all Honda dealerships nationwide on 15 August 2022.

Designed to step up your cutting edge, this latest offering from Honda Philippines, Inc., (HPI) the No.1 motorcycle manufacturer in the country, caters to the lifestyle needs of first-time and experienced riders alike. It’s the perfect ride for daily commuting and leisure trips for those with an eye for performance, features, and design.

The All-New AirBlade160 lives up to its name by allowing you to slice through the wind while speeding on the new generation 157cc, 4-Valve, eSP+ engine. It’s the model’s star upgrade that generates peak power of 11.2kW @ 8,000rpm and top torque of 14.6Nm @ 6,500rpm, which proves more than enough in making your way through city traffic or going full throttle in long drives.

Riding comfort is also ensured with Twin Shock Rear Suspension, a system that effectively absorbs bumps better, limiting bouncing for a smoother experience, which means that the passenger is also guaranteed a comfortable and smooth ride, sparing you from worrying about the limitations of traveling light.

The weight allowance also enables you to make the most of the large compartment where you can store your helmet (may vary depending on size and design) and other personal items.

For even more storage convenience, smart partitions can divide the trunk into two compartments, which is equipped with an LED lamp that makes for easier item navigation. This feature is just among the many qualities of the All-New AirBlade160.

The All-New AirBlade160 also comes with a full range of essential features and technologies developed to make every ride safe and secure.

The Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), for instance, prevents wheel locking and increases stability, especially in case of sudden braking or when traveling on wet slippery roads.

There’s also the Idling Stop System (ISS) that automatically switches off the engine after three seconds of being stationary. This reduces fuel consumption and increases efficiency alongside the engine’s economical fuel consumption of 47.5km/L, based on the World Motorcycle Test Cycle Method. The engine automatically turns on again once the throttle is rotated, without having to restart.

Meanwhile, to avoid the hassle of forgetting where you parked, the Honda Smart Key is integrated with Answer Back System and Anti-Theft Alarm that helps you locate your responsive AirBlade160.

For your charging needs, you can access a new USB Charger (Type A) port. Equipped with a waterproof cover inside the luggage box, the 2.1A charging port output allows your phone to stay juiced up throughout every ride.

In terms of display, the All-New AirBlade160 features a modern and neatly-designed Full Digital Meter Panel. It’s easy to read and even shows other important data, including instantaneous/average fuel consumption information and a trip meter, helping users to analyze optimal driving situations.

The All-New AirBlade160 is also equipped with an All-LED Lighting System. Characterized modern LED lighting clusters create a dynamic sporty feeling.

Speaking of dynamic and sporty feeling, The All-New AirBlade160 boasts the same cutting edge and sleek appeal.

Turn heads with the new and impressive Two-Tone Color Scheme, which comes with the iconic 3D emblem that signifies sophistication and elegance. It’s the perfect touch for those who seek the premium and powerful look in every detail. The same concepts are exuded by the new Two-Tone Leather Seat that looks and feels top-notch.

The All-New AirBlade160 will be available in three color variants. There’s Matte Dim Gray Metallic, furnished with Gold 3D Emblem plus a “Special Edition” sticker on the body; as well as Pearl Dark Ash Blue 2 and Candy Luster Red, which comes with a Silver 3D Emblem with a suggested retail price of P119,900.
