The Combi-braking technology ensures a shorter braking distance with more stability, while the equalizer, unique to Honda, ensures you get perfect balance while braking hard. The 125CC HET engine is also equipped with the superior Optimax Honda eco-technology (HET). The new stunning graphics on the tank give the bike a bold look. The special edition is also available with two new paint schemes: Black with Imperial Red Metallic and Black with Spear Silver Metallic.
