The new breed

Pocket performer.

Unique, unconventional, with an attitude all its own, this bike may be compact and incredibly nimble, but it rides and feels like a much bigger machine. If you’re looking for serious fun, look no further than the MSX125.

Get noticed

It’s everything expected of a Honda, in terms of performance, build quality and usability, but also wears a style and has an attitude all of its own.

Clutch, gear change and throttle control are all operated as you would a full sized bike. Underneath its bold muscular body, a whole host of features create a balanced, agile and comfortable ride. These include inverted front fork, a mono-backbone steel frame, thick 31mm tyres and Y-shaped spokes - like those featured on our very latest Sports bikes.

Pocket power

Increased intake and exhaust efficiency along with low friction technology has produced a highly economical PGM-Fi fuel injected, air-cooled 2-valve, 125cc engine. Together with a 4-speed gearbox and wet multi-plate clutch, the unit delivers good torque from low, but with a smooth, responsive roll-on acceleration when you need it.

Hard-working pipes

The exhaust pipe features a larger, 28.6mm diameter bore with increased 3L multi-section muffler volume, allowing a strong power output in the mid and upper rpm ranges.

See and be seen

The MSX125 uses a combined projector headlight, not only does this feature give the front of the bike a strong identity and presence, it also uses a single light source rather than a pair of bulbs for both high and low beam. Easy to read for its compact size, the LCD digital dash delivers all the information the rider needs.

Dual purpose frame

The MSX125 has a rigid steel mono-backbone frame. Specifically tuned vertical/horizontal rigidity and flex in the swingarm pivot and engine hanger plates provides the perfect balance of comfort and confidence.

Small enough to be supremely manageable, yet it also has a fully-fledged feel thanks to some full-size motorcycle parts.
