Honda to roll out MSX125 in the UK in late spring 2013

Article by Anita Panait, on January 11, 2013

Honda will start selling its latest small-wheeled leisure motorcycle, the MSX125 (Mini Street X-treme 125) in the United Kingdom in late spring 2013. The MSX125 continues on with the tradition that Honda started in 1963 with the iconic Monkey, and followed by the Dax and Ape.

The MSX125 is described as mini-bike, part motorcycle – making it small enough to be very manageable while giving its driver a fully-fledged feel, thanks to a number of standard-sized motorcycle parts.

The MSX125 promises to provide engaging performance while ensuring nice handling and styling, making it more fun to ride. Powering the Thailand-made MSX125 is fuel-efficient 125cc fuel-injected 4-stroke engine, which Honda further improved to deliver better fuel economy, more power and smoother torque. The engine is matched to a motorcycle-style four-speed gearbox and clutch.

To complement the MSX125’s powertrain, Honda installed a compact chassis that features a sturdy steel frame, inverted front forks, monoshock rear suspension and hydraulic disc brakes in the front and in the rear. It also sports and lightweight 12-inch wheels fitted with wide, low profile tyres.
