New Stealthy Colour for 2024 Honda RS-X

Boon Siew Honda has just announced a new exciting colour for the 2024 Honda RS-X.

Honda dubs the new colour Mat Ion Blue Metallic. It gives the bike a fresh mid-life update: The new colour scheme makes the bike look stealthy, for want of a better word, compared to the previous offerings. It will be available in authorised and selected Honda dealers nationwide starting 22nd February 2024. The selling price of the 2024 Honda RS-X is RM9,798, without road tax, insurance and registration.

The RS-X continues to sell well in the country despite several reported “quirks.” It is mainly due to a pretty good performance courtesy of its 150cc, DOHC engine which produces 15.8hp (11.8kW) at 9,000 RPM and 13.6Nm of torque at 7,000 RPM. That power is channeled through a 6-speed gearbox. Anyone who has ridden the bike will tell you that it has a punchy low RPM acceleration that is great for urban riding. The engine is EURO 4 emission standard compliant, too.

Another selling point of the Honda RS-X is its design, which makes it look larger for a small bike. The Honda press release calls it “muscular.” This look is complemented with features that remain unchanged, such as the 1-channel Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS). 1-channel means it is only available on one wheel, in this case, the front. Hey, before criticising the system, let it be known that even bigger KTMs has a Supermoto feature to turn off the rear wheel’s ABS! Additionally, having ABS at least on one wheel is better than none at all.

Other features include LED lighting and digital speedometer.

Wahid's lust for motorcycles was spurred on by his late-Dad's love for his Lambretta on which he courted, married his mother, and took baby Wahid riding on it. He has since worked in the motorcycle and automotive industry for many years, before taking up riding courses and testing many, many motorcycles since becoming a motojournalist. Wahid likes to see things differently. What can you say about a guy who sees a road safety message in AC/DC's "Highway to Hell."
