Hey it’s finally here…the much anticipated Honda MSX 125 or widely known as THE GROM that has been flooding the internet lately.
Back in the 70’s and 80’s we would call them Monkey bikes…and the trend is back.
These are a hit in asia as well around the globe. I was in Siem Reap 2 months back and I kept seeing these MSX 125’s on the streets. Was talking to myself…Eh when lah Malaysia…
Guess what it is finally here and this is some head turner. Not by its super bike looks which there aren’t, but the intriguing design of it that gives you an impression that even a child can ride it. Here are the dimensions. 1,755(L) x 730(W) x 1,000mm (H). No wonder it is so senang to cilok as they say (weave through traffic) and a favorite amongst users. Nice one Honda!
Small and low profile tyres, the ability to customize and all. I was on youtube the other day and I came across a video of a Grom/MSX125 hitting the corners like there was not tomorrow. I was like….really? I had to take a 2nd look…
This will be an awesome play bike and your daily commuter that will not blow your money bag.
So what is the MSX 125 all about?
It’s powered by a potent 125cc air- cooled single cylinder 4-stroke engine that delivers maximum power of 7.2kW at 7,000rpm and maximum torque of 11Nm at 5,250rpm. Not bad at all…no wonder it was hitting the corners effortlessly.
It has a 5.7 litre fuel tank, Fuel Injected and a Euro 3 standard compliant engine. Meaning cleaner emissions. That we like.
Chassis wise, it is constructed from an extremely strong and durable steel mono-backbone frame claiming to provide confident handling in all conditions (Yet to give it a good go). Its underbone frame is claimed to be rigid yet flexible enough to allow a certain degree of yield, which enables it to better respond to changes on the road. Ideal dimensions of 1,755(L) x 730(W) x 1,000mm (H) with a make the MSX 125 very easy to manage and navigate through tight traffic.
It also comes with a sleek fairing with its LED headlight & taillight. The LCD display with speedometer, twin trip meters, fuel gauge and clock although taken from the CB series is definitely refreshing in lines with Honda’s revamp plans to prioritize new designs with technology in every new line up.
So what is the Price tag on this…? Well not too hefty.
Currently it has an introduction showroom price of RM11,128.94 (GST included), with a manufacturing warranty of 2 years or 20,000km (whichever comes first).
The MSX 125 available in two color options, Hyper Yellow and Burning Red.
