Which is why the Dax is back. Born in the late 1960s, all the things that made it so good then – small size, easy-going engine and light steering – make it even more enjoyable today. We’ve added more power, an upgraded frame, suspension and brakes, but the simple essence remains the same: Dax and relax, riding is fun.

Magic ones, too. That first twist of throttle, the feeling of moving forward, of individuality. Of freedom. This is what the Dax does. It opens the door of motorcycling wide open, for anybody and everybody and does it with authentic, cheeky charm. After 40 years away from Europe a faithful old friend is back, ready to make new memories.

And a Thoroughly Modern Motorcycle

Why is the Dax, called the Dax you might ask? It’s because its T-shaped pressed-steel mainframe looks rather like a Dachshund dog. Constructed with 21st century engineering know-how it’s both sturdy and stylish. All the other parts are perfect in period detail; the high mini-ape handlebars, off-road-inspired upswept exhaust muffler and dual seat all give the Dax its unmistakable, charming form.

What Else Do You Need?

The Dax is for everybody. So we’ve made it easy to ride. Starting with a seat height of just 775mm and natural control from a relaxed, upright riding position. High-quality suspension – 31mm USD front forks and twin rear shocks – provide a plush ride, as do fat front and rear tyres, which grip well on a variety of surfaces. For peace of mind, single-channel ABS controls braking force to the hydraulic front and rear calipers.

With Twist and Go Simplicity

Built for durability and smooth delivery, the air-cooled, 124cc engine produces 6.9kw peak power with 10.8Nm torque. That equals lively around-town acceleration and a realistic, two-up cruising speed of 90km/h. It also sips fuel, at 63.7km/l (WMTC mode). To make life even more straightforward, a centrifugal clutch does away with a clutch lever – just open the throttle and go. Shifting through all four gears is via foot lever, but the system does all the work.

Big On Features

It’s all the small things that catch the eye. The chromed rear grab rail is styled just right and also provides a neat handhold for a passenger. A cover protects the final drive chain from the elements (and loose clothing) while blacked-out, 12-inch 5-spoke wheels add a touch of modernity. As does full LED lighting and a compact, circular negative LCD instrument display full of the information you need, and nothing else.
