Easy to use, fun and functional, the original leisure motorcycle was defined by Honda in 1963 with the iconic, small-wheeled Monkey bike and carried on - redefined for each respective generation - with the Dax and Ape. And it's a formula that still has resonance for a completely new breed of young riders; known as 'Generation Y' in the USA, 'Dek Neaw' in Thailand and 'Street-Kei' in Japan many of today's teenagers, having grown up in the borderless, internet age share a culture, fashion and spirit that defies convention.
Instinctively drawn to motorcycling they need their first two-wheeled transport to be exciting but not unduly challenging, and want it to pack a design that makes them smile. They also have a desire to turn heads and be more than just a little bit different. Plus, given the usual financial pressures of starting out in life, all of this needs to be achieved as economically as possible.
Manufactured in Thailand the MSX125 is small enough to be supremely manageable yet also has a fully-fledged feel thanks to some standard sized motorcycle parts. It is part mini-bike, part motorcycle with involving performance matched to confident handling and styling that combines a sense of fun with a tough, urban edge.
Its well-proven and efficient 125cc fuel-injected engine has been further refined for even greater economy plus smooth torque and power delivery, and also features a motorcycle-style four-speed gearbox and clutch.
Come in to Honda Wing Umhlanga and meet this funky newcomer. You will find us at 15 Meridian Drive, Umhlanga Ridge. Call us on 031 580 7900 for more information.
Caption: The MSX125 has a style and exudes an attitude all of its own. Born of a feeling, of now, it's quirkily fresh and fittingly unconventional.
