Does anyone know if the MSX125 is available in Bangkok in Yellow? In the north the only colors are Black, White and Red.

^ I had a yellow VF750S on my drive, but Honda never painted it that way.

 

I'm sure you can buy the yellow panels & tank from Honda.

I'm wondering how these compare to the KLX 125 @ B82,000

To the best of my knowledge Kawasaki and Honda are the only two who make pit bikes, in Thailand - everything else is made abroad..

The KLX125 is a taller dirt bike.

The Dtracker125 is a closer comparison but really the KSR is the main competition.

The DTX125 seems a taller bike for Farangs but it is air cooled so probably makes less power.

The MSX has more modern technology than all, but it is short.

I think they look cool and can't fault anyone for riding one.

Okay, cheers. Wasn't aware that Kawasaki had more than one model in its off-road bike array.

These are not stock msx though.
But this bike gained the cult status already. They sols 50k msx in thailand what i read!
Besides, great bike to play with both ride and mech.
Lots of aftermarket options as well.
Seen some too notch ones at last bike fest.
Also seen a nice and clever swing arm extension recetly like a switchblade. You can extend it or make it shorter, up to your needs. Nice!

Yeah, the MSX has to be the most popular enthusiast's bike in Thailand.

I enjoyed seeing all the mods and variety of customs at the recent show.

 

It was very smart of Honda to sell this bike.

I think it would be the best bike for anyone that likes to customize.

That video does look fun, the bike won't last too long jumping around like that but with so many aftermarket parts, breaking it would mean upgrade time.

I think this would be the funnest bike to race since speeds don't need to be crazy fast to be fun. 

 

The positive and negative to me is it being so short.

The small size equals fun, but I could never ride it for over an hour; my legs would cramp up.
