Apart from the legacy of making refined and reliable set of wheels, there is something more that Honda does well….making little eye-candies. From the already adorable 50cc Ruckus, here another in the lineup. The Mini Street X-Treme 125 (MSX 125 in short) has been revealed by Honda for the European and Japanese markets. Catering more towards the learner’s segment in Europe, Japan would see it to make up as an efficient medium for cutting through the congested urbanscape.
Powered by a 125cc air-cooled single cylinder engine, the 101.7 kg toddler pumps out a modest 9.65 bhp @ 7000 rpm and 10.9 nm of torque @ 5500 rpm connected to a 4 speed box. Fueling duties are taken care of by Honda’s patented PGM-FI system. An offset cylinder setup, rolling rocker arms for valve actuation make for low friction, reduced maintenance and drinking habits. Typically Honda!!!
Other specifications are a visual delight- 31mm USD forks at the front and mono at the rear with a 220 and 190 millimeter disc brakes running at both ends. To add more to the delectable menu card, you have 12 inchers 120/70 front and 130/70 low profile footwear. And yes a digital dash and a projector too. Such a spec chart would humble a lot of performance motorcycles down here and that priceless feeling of attracting a lot more eyeballs too.
Absolutely delicious….wish we could buy one!
And yeah…here’s a video treat too. Don’t get too carried away by the rush of antics- its just a sub-10 bhp bike 😉
