Honda Vietnam (HVN) has unveiled the latest 2020 Honda Winner X Sport ABS for their local market. The new model represents the success of the model in the country after only eight months since the first model was introduced and more than 114,000 units sold.
The new 2020 Honda Winner X Sport ABS comes with a variety of colour options from Sport to Track versions (we’re assuming that they’re referring to the HRC colours, not an actual track version of the 150cc cub) priced from 48,990,000 VND (around RM9,124 after direct conversion).
Don’t be fooled by the new name as the previous Winner X was already offered with front ABS as one of the options for the model. The 2020 Honda Winner X Sport ABS showcases new design options and choice as well as a new ‘Sport’ graphics on the side to entice the market with a refreshed look.
Spec-wise, the updated Winner X still runs the same 150cc single-cylinder PGM-FI DOHC engine that produces around 15.4hp (11.5kW) at 9,000rpm and 13.5Nm of maximum torque at 6,500rpm. All its power is delivered to the rear wheel via a six-speed manual transmission.
A lot of folks here in Malaysia were actually hopeful that Boon Siew Honda would bring in the Winner X into the Malaysian market as the second version of the Honda RS150R. The current RS150R V2 still has its following and based on a survey conducted by BSH, the results indicated that Malaysians wanted the current offering rather than the Winner X, which comes with all-round LED lights, fully digital meter panel, and a more muscular exterior.
Anyway, the 2020 Honda Winner X Sport ABS will go on sale in Vietnam starting next month and HVN will be offering it with a three-year warranty period (or 30,000km). A cool looking bike that’s affordable and has a long warranty period? Now that’s a winning combination.
