Honda CT125 launch in Indonesia makes it an interesting step since it is unique in more ways than one. You can not write it off for India completely as well…
We recently reported that Honda has filed for patents for its upcoming CT125 Hunter Cub in India. In a latest update, the 125 cc moped ADV has been launched in Indonesia. The company has introduced it as an icon of duck trekking motorcycle that is easy to ride.
Honda claims that the new 125 cc moped can not only be used on the urban roads, but also for various outdoor activities like trekking.
The new CT125 comes equipped with a 125 cc, PGM-Fi, air-cooled engine that is good enough to produce a peak power output of 8.83 PS at 7,500 rpm, and maximum torque of 11 Nm at 4,500 rpm.
In terms of design, the moped features a high-swept exhaust, rounded headlights, and a high-positioned intake duct, that reduces the incoming dust. In place of the rear seat, it gets a large luggage rack with a capacity to carry upto 20 kg.
The CT125 weighs just 120 kg which means it should be a fun gadabout and features 17-inch telescopic forks at the front to handle the suspension duties. While it gets discs at both ends to handle the braking duties, ABS is featured only on the front wheel.
Honda has priced it at Indonesia Rp. 75,000,000 (translating to around Rs 3.82 lakhs), and surprisingly it will be sold through the premium Honda BigWing dealership chain across the Southeast Asian country.
Since Honda has also patented the ‘hunter’ in India, there is a teeny weeny hope that it may land onto our shores as well; as more of an icon rather than a volume product.
