Honda's answer to the KSR?

Yep, looks like a cross between the KSR and the older style Honda monkey bikes like the Gorilla. Probably quite a cool little bike with 125cc and FI but I prefer the more moto-styled look of the KSR or the little KLX150 myself.

Nice bike for gf.
It looks ok and has a full manual clutch unlike ksr which has honda wave style semi auto 4 speeder and underpowered 110 cc engine with carb i guess?
Hope we can see interesting bikes like that in Thailand.

Such bikes would be interesting if they would be build in real size, not as toy or for dwarfs [img]http://static.thaivisa.com/forum//public/style_emoticons/default/wink.png[/img]
A simple aircooled moped with good power would be nice. But OK, its a Honda, people will buy it anyway [img]http://static.thaivisa.com/forum//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png[/img]

No need to feel big for me, i am big. This is why such toy isn't interesting for most farang. Any member here owning and riding such toy? Useless waste of space in the garage imo. "Nice for the GF" - keep on dreaming :)

I own a KSR. I also own what Thai people call a big bike, a gsxr600. Fortunately I'm secure enough that neither bike defines me.

I met and had lunch with a KSR group ride in Khao Yai a few months ago, if you met some of the guys enjoying that ride then I'm pretty sure you would keep your opinions where they belong, behind your keyboard :)

No worries Macho man, I guess when you ride a monstrous beast of a machine like the CBR150 you can really start to look down on the 'small' bikes, classic!

Let's see; Honda sold more >151cc bikes than everyone else did regardless of displacement except Suzuki and Yamaha. Having said that Yamaha had 1/3 of the sales that Honda had and Suzuki had 5%. Think what would happen for Honda's profits if they could squeeze competitors like that out of the market?

You would be surprised how many Thai girls are crazy about KSR's and are actually riding them. So, this will not be any different.

In fact you need a "real big bike" for the things i do on a CBR150. And you need a "monkey bike" for the things i do on a bicycle. And i look "up" from my bicycle and wonder "Why does anyone wants to ride a toy bike so he looks like "a monkey humping a football". But we live in a free world. And if it sells it sells [img]http://static.thaivisa.com/forum//public/style_emoticons/default/tongue.png[/img]

I guess i would be surprised, because i never saw one. But hey guys, no need to be offended. I just said that i would prefer that Honda would build bikes in "real size". If anyone thinks i called him a dwarf than i am sorry [img]http://static.thaivisa.com/forum//public/style_emoticons/default/wai.gif[/img] [img]http://static.thaivisa.com/forum//public/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.png[/img]

Wantan I think what people are trying to get across to you is Honda do make bikes like this in "real size" xr , cr etc . This new bike is to compete in the growing popularity of minatures and at a fraction of the cost of a "real size" bike.
Would be fun around the farm.

I have a so called 'bigger' bike, but I also have a KSR and man it is fun to ride, esp' around the dirt roads up country. Looks good too. But I'm just 70kgs and clearly Wantan isn't.

If that new honda is coming out it will sell ok i think, but the KSR looks better.

In the uk I saw a guy smack straight into the Back of a lorry on one of these little bikes ,he was only going slow so it wasnt too bad the bike didn't actually touch the lorry it was more the guys chest and arms smacking into the lorry kinda put me of these little bikes.

ride any bike into a metal truck that weighs a few tonnes and the results arent going to be pretty
this bike will be better than the ksr for at least 1 reason ,fully manual clutch
Although i will also be too tall to ever get comfortable on a bike like that i can see how people could have great fun on it
and if i were a teenager again or 40kg lighter ,i would want one :D

I  know one and she worked on  Pattaya Soi 6. Said it made her look sexy to custoners. Now got a beautiful house and loads of land in Khon Khaen.

 

In a country where loads of ladies ride bikes, isn't a female version of male penis extensions a good idea?

It's a sweet looking ride, and a hair taller than a KSR. I am considering getting one actually...

 

To me it looks way better than a KSR, at least stock. And it has a clutch! Clear winner in my book.

 

wantan you need to get out of the house more, I see girls on KSRs everywhere. Daily. They look hot on those bikes and I guess they know it wink.png

Yep, the use of such bike as quality working equipment makes sense of course biggrin.png
