If you follow the local motorcycle industry regularly, then you might have noticed how busy Honda Philippines (HPI) has gotten this year. We mean really busy.

HPI has been continuously updating its lineup on an almost monthly basis, and recently, we were treated to yet another new launch: the AirBlade 160. This joins the brand’s revamped scooter lineup in our market alongside other new 160cc scooters in the Click and the PCX.

How will the new Honda AirBlade 160 stack up against its competitors, though? In this article, we take a deep dive into the specs and features of one of HPI’s newest offerings.

The AirBlade 160 measures 1,890mm long, 686mm wide, and 1,116mm tall with 142mm of ground clearance and a 775mm seat height. It’s almost just as big as the Click 160 across the board, only the AirBlade’s seat is 3mm lower.

The AirBlade sits on 14-inch front and rear wheels shod in 100/80-14MC 48P and 90/80-14MC 43P tubeless tires, respectively. HPI’s website doesn’t list the fuel-tank capacity, but the old AirBlade did get a 4.4-liter tank. This old figure checks out with the AirBlade 160 listed on Honda’s Vietnam website.

In terms of design, the AirBlade 160 still retains most of the original version’s design. The scooter’s silhouette and overall shape are the same, and even the headlights up front see no changes. What Honda has changed up with this bike is its finish—the aforementioned colorways are all new, and they all spice up the AirBlade’s look quite nicely with the contrasting seats and new-look badges.
