Sleek and sporty new Honda Click 160 scooter introduced in Thailand where it retails for THB63,500 (approx. RM7,976.73).


Honda ADV350 and NT1100 claim prestigious Red Dot Design Awards, allowing Honda to mark third year in a row at winning prestigious design accolade.


A few weeks ago, a Japanese publication, Autoby claimed that Honda plans to expand the 250 and 500cc range with an all-new scrambler-style motorcycle.

Japanese render artist Shinji Miyakubo also recently created a CG render of the CL250 and CL500.

However, in the latest report by another Japanese publication Young-Machine, patent drawings from 2018 could relate to Honda’s anticipated CL500 Scrambler.

Using Honda’s design concept all these years, YM has created their version of the rumoured CL500.

YM suggest that the CL500 will maintain most of the components from the CL250, particularly the brakes and suspension. However, the frame will be adjusted to accommodate the larger displacement engine similar to the Rebel 500.

In fact, the patent drawings showcased a similar resemblance with the Rebel.

The patent drawings also show a flat saddle, square fuel tank and a conventional shape exhaust compared to Miyakubo-san’s high-mounted twin pipe.

Meanwhile, it is safe to assume that the CL500 will carry the same 471cc DOHC parallel-twin engine that makes 46.9hp @ 8,500rpm and 43Nm @ 7,000rpm.

At the moment, there are absolutely zero words coming from the Japanese firm regarding the rumoured scrambler range; however, when YM is on to something, those rumours tend to carry something tangible.

Honda has entered the e-dirt bike category with the introduction of the CRF-E2, after a succesfull partnership with California-based startup company, Greenger Powersports.

The CRF-E2 is an electric dirt bike equivalent to a 50cc motorcycle that caters to young dirt bike riders.

The CRF-E2 is built based on Greenger Motors G12R and G12S that was previously launched in March 2020.

Powered by a 48V brushless DC motor capable of generating 1.2kW (1.6hp) and 2.5kW (3.4hp) maximum power, the motor also pumps out 24Nm of torque.

Honda claims that the 20 AH/960 Wh swappable battery can last up to two hours in ideal condition with users able to fully recharge the CRF-E2 in just four hours with standard charger (2.5 hours with quick charger).

The battery only weighs at 5.8 kilograms making it easier to be swap out by owners.

The CRF-E2 also features aluminium twin-spar frame, rebound and preload-adjustable rear shock with 3.9″ of travel at the front and 8.3″ of rear travel.

Other specifications include a hydraulic callipers mated to a 190mm petal disc, two 12-inch wire-spoke wheels paired to a Kenda Millvlle K771 knobby tires.

Interestingly, parents can adjust the seat height to 24.8″ or 25.5″ according to their child height.

The Honda CRF-E2 is priced at USD2,950 (RM12.3k).

The 90s was a great year for motorcycles, with the likes of 900cc supersports were seen as a raw machine.

The non-existent of technological advancement like 6-axis IMU, ABS, Traction Control and Wheelie Control made the 90s supersports  a wild machine.

As such, those who were seen riding on bikes like the Kawasaki ZX-9R and the CBR900RR are either extremely skilled or borderline crazy.

Meanwhile, post 2010 supersports machine are manageable even by the likes of inexperienced riders thanks to technology and electronic aids.

However, if you are in the lookout of something raw and wanting to experience the 90s bikes, perhaps this pristine 1993 Honda CBR900RR Fireblade up for auction is for you.

Debuted in 1992, the CBR900RR Fireblade is  powered by a water-cooled 893cc DOHC inline-four engine capable of  churning out 111hp. Mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, the only electronic aid available is an electronic ignition.

The beautiful beast is currently listed on Bring A Trailer and bidding starts at a whopping USD50k (RM210k).

If your first reaction is to complaint about the price, then perhaps the bike is not for you but if you has a penchant for all things retro and appreciate a thing of beauty, then the CBR900RR Fireblade could be the right gem for your garage.

Looking immaculate, the CBR900RR has only 5,000miles and currently waiting for a new caretaker. According to the description, the bike currently sits in Florida.

Bodywork is finished in white, blue and red with matching graphics and features aluminium twin-spar rame with reinforced aluminium swingarm.

Other additional components includes a black solo seat with passenger pillion, windscreen, fairing-mounted mirrors, a side-stand and a 18L fuel tank.

Other exiciting features include:

  • 16″ front and 17″  rear wheel with Bridgestone Battlax BT65 tires
  • Nissin 4-pot brake callipers (front) and single piston callipers (rear)
  • Showa cartridge-type front fork
  • Pro-Link rear coilover (compression, rebound and spring adjustable)

Meanwhile, the dash features a 185mph (299km/h) speedometer, 11,000rpm redline tachometer and a temperature gauge.

Honda India has officially commenced its new manufacturing plant in Gujarat, India.

According to the company, the new facility will manufacture only 250cc engines and above for the international markets.

Despite the engine details remaining scarce, the new manufacturing plant is set up to meet the increasing demand in markets like South East Asia, Europe, the US, Canada, Japan and Australia.

“As demand for mobility rises globally, Honda envisions further expansion of its exports footprint across the world.

“With the introduction of BSVI norms in India, we are a step closer to achieving this vision.

“Building products which are at par with global standards of manufacturing, this new expansion will allow HMSI to develop production capabilities to strengthen our direction of make in India, for the world,” said HMSI MD, President and CEO Atsushi Ogata noted.

Honda claimed the new facility is able to produce close to 50,000 engines in the first year and will eventually increase to meet global demand hence strengthening the Japanese brand in the market.

In commemoration of Honda’s 1961 win of the world championship in road racing, CASIO has released the EDIFICE Honda Racing Limited Edition EQS-930HR.

This is the 5th collaboration model between CASIO and Honda Racing in the EDIFICE range of high-performance metal chronograph based on the concept of “Speed and Intelligence”.

2021 marks Honda’s 60th-anniversary win in Round 2 of the 250cc Grand Prix in West Germany thanks to Kunimitsu Takahashi on board the RC162.

The achievement was a big step not just for Honda but for Japanese motorcycle manufacturer as a whole, as Takahashi success marked the first time a Japanese racer won a road racing world championship.

The RC162 is powered by an air-cooled 4-cylinder 249.3cc DOHC that is capable of producing over 45PS @ 14,000rpm and 20NM @ 12,000rpm while mated to a 6-speed transmission.

Despite the small displacement engine, the RC162 able to reach the maximum speed of over 220km/h thanks to a light chassis and frame that weigh only 126.6 kilograms.

The overall design of the EQS-930HR watch was to evoke the legendary Honda RC162 race bike that powered Takahashi to victory.

The limited-edition timepiece features a bezel and dial reminiscent of the RC162’s aluminium fairing, while RC162 design features include red that resembles the colour of the tank, yellow that resembles the fairing line, a classic Honda logo, and a genuine leather band.

EDIFICE also took the extra effort to highlight the classic Honda logo on the dial, band ring and back cover.

The band is genuine leather with black on the front and red on the back including a series of details on the outer side to pay homage to a rider racing suits.

Built on the EDIFICE EQS-930 series, this limited edition watch is powered by CASIO’s innovative shadow-dispersing solar cells that sit under the inset dials that allow even the smallest amount of light to get through the design-packed dial.

The EDIFICE Honda Racing Limited Edition EQS-930HR also offers a variety of features which includes:

  • Mineral glass
  • Screw lock back
  • 100-meter water resistance
  • 1-second stopwatch

Honda Motorcycle Europe is pulling out all the stops and the 2021 Honda CB125R got our attention for a number of things. Don’t be fooled by its displacement, the new CB125R carries a lot of ‘big boy’ parts which makes it a genuine ‘Geng Tayar Besar’ model right out of the showroom. (more…)

If you thought that the current Honda X-ADV is already impressive, wait until you feast your eyes on the 2021 Honda X-ADV. Out of all the newly-launched models, the 2021 X-ADV receives the most updates from redesigned looks, increased firepower, and upgraded riding technologies. (more…)

  • Patent files shows Honda is working on an electric-powered motorcycle based on the CB125R.
  • The patent drawings show a small electric power plant that matches the form and purpose of the CB125R.
  • The bike is already 75% production ready, which means a global debut is not too far away.

Electrification is the future, and there is no doubt about that. Our prediction is that almost every form of transportation will be electric powered in about 100 years.

Honda for one is already working on patenting such technologies, and though we have had electric motorcycles for a while now, this is interesting because it marks the possible arrival of an electric powered 125 sized motorcycle from Honda.

How do we know this? Well the internet is a abuzz with news about Honda filing patents on a new electric motorcycle that looks a lot like the existing CB125R.

From the patent drawings seen here, it is probably safe to assume that the electric powered CB125R is already in its final R&D form somewhere in a Honda lab.

The internet is speculating that the electric power plant will be small and lightweight and perhaps even ‘dinner plate sized’.

This is not too far fetched considering the CB125 itself is a compact lightweight motorcycle.

Having a small lightweight electric power plant means it will fit right into the form and purpose of the CB125R.

Other than the obvious change in power plant, the rest of the CB125R’s frame, suspension and braking systems look unchanged.

Of course this is all we can tell from the renderings, but you can be sure that there will be lots of small adaptations inside the frame to accommodate the electric engine and batteries.

We hear you asking about performance and range and charging periods, but all we know so far is that Honda has filed patents and with all patents, performance and range specifications are kept secret.

But you can safely assume that power won’t differ much from the 125cc engine. This is because the overall chassis and related parts are also designed to handle a certain amount of power and torque.

Any more and the frame won’t be able to handle it. Redesigning the frame doesn’t make sense due to the cost factors involved.

And so, because 75% of the electric CB125R is production ready, it won’t take more than a year or so for the final product to reach global markets. Watch this space!

Honda has revealed its challenger for the Kawasaki Ninja ZX-25R and unsurprisingly, it’s the 2021 Honda CBR250RR. Packed with more power this time around, the new Honda 250cc sports bike now produces 41hp @ 13,000rpm and 25Nm of torque @ 11,000rpm. (more…)
