Honda's primate evolution MSX

2013-01-10 11:37

NOVICE-FRIENDLY, COMPACT AND FUN:The MSX125 has all the requirements to become a popular zip around town or school-run motorcycle.

Parents lock up your adolescent children, Honda's MSX125 is sure to become coveted by 16-18-year-olds as one of the cooler "school-and-back" motorcycles.

The MSX125 (“Mini Street X-treme 125”) carries on the tradition of the original, small-wheeled leisure motorcycle, defined by Honda in 1963 with the iconic Monkey, and continued with the Dax and Ape.

Manufactured in Thailand, the MSX125 is small enough to be supremely manageable yet has a fully-fledged feel thanks to a selection of standard sized motorcycle parts.



It is part mini-bike, part motorcycle, with engaging performance matched to confident handling and styling that combines a sense of fun with a tough, urban edge.

The MSX125 is powered by a well-proven and efficient 125cc, fuel-injected, four-stroke engine been refined for fuel economy and smoother torque and power delivery, and also features a motorcycle-style four-speed gearbox and clutch.

Complementing the power train is a compact chassis that features a sturdy steel frame, inverted front forks, monoshock rear suspension, hydraulic disc brakes (front and rear) and lightweight 12" wheels with low profile tyres.

The MSX125's release/not release in South Africa is yet to be confirmed.
