X-RIDER BLACK EDITION
ISUZU LAUNCHES EXCLUSIVE KB
Isuzu Motors South Africa has now also succumbed to the attraction of a black edition, already seen in the Toyota Hilux and Ford Ranger ranges, by adding a dash of exclusivity and appeal to its X-rider model.
The X-rider Black – a limited edition allblack model is now available as part of the popular KB double cab line-up. The X-rider has created a niche of its own with its distinctive styling elements and upmarket features, setting it apart from the rest of the range.
Initially introduced in 2016 as a 700-unit limited edition, demand for the X-rider led to it being added as a permanent fixture of the KB range. The X-rider Black is painted exclusively in Black Meet Kettle, giving the special model an aggressive and distinctive appearance. An extensive list of unique features includes a black front
bumper guard, projector headlamps with integrated LED daytime running lights, front fog lamps, 18-inch alloy wheels, red Isuzu badges, blacked-out B-pillars, black side steps, and a black sports bar in the load bay featuring the X-rider logo. The cabin is imbued with black leather seats picked out with red bolster stitching and the “X-rider” logo embroidered on the headrests. Red stitching is also used for the leathertrimmed steering wheel with a red Isuzu badge, and on the gear lever boot.
Interestingly, the X-rider Black is only available in KB250 double cab form with 4×2 and a manual transmission. Its price of R426,300 includes a five-year/120 000 km warranty, roadside assistance and a fiveyear/90 000 km service plan.
