    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.

    Default Honda have announced an all-new 125 for 2013 the MSX125

    Honda have announced an all-new 125 for 2013 the MSX125 (Mini Street X-treme 125) which, according to the company, carries on the tradition of the original, small-wheeled leisure motorcycle, defined by Honda in 1963 with the iconic Monkey, and continued with the Dax and Ape. Manufactured in Thailand, the Honda MSX125 is powered by a 125cc air-cooled single-cylinder fuel-injected 4-stroke engine that produces 9.6bhp and 11Nm of torque. It is part mini-bike, part motorcycle, with engaging performance matched to confident handling and styling that combines a sense of fun with a tough, urban edge, claim Honda.

    The Honda MSX125 has a 4-speed gearbox, projector headlight, LED tail-lamp, LCD digital dash, mono-backbone steel tube chassis, 31mm USD fork at the front, monoshock at the back and rides on 12-inch cast-alloy wheels shod with 120/70 (front) and 130/70 (rear) tyres. A single 220mm disc with dual-piston caliper (front) and single 190mm disc with single-piston caliper (rear) handle braking duties on the tiny Honda, which weighs just 102 kilos. Fuel tank capacity is 5.5 litres and colour choices include black, white, red and yellow.

    We actually quite like the little Honda MSX125 it looks a bit quirky and is way cooler than, say, a Honda CBR500R. Pricing and availability details coming soon

    Personally love the looks! Is this for India? Not sure, but gotta keep on eye on this new kid!

    Default The return of the Honda 'Monkey'

    If there ever was a motorcycle that earned the word cute is its best descriptor, the Honda Monkey might be it. A diminutive and fun motorcycle, it was hard to look good on Hondas old Z-series bikes, though the machines themselves still carry their own unique flavor of cool to this day.

    Fast-forward fifty-years later, and Honda is bringing the Monkey back, this time in the guise of the 2013 Honda MSX125. Manufactured in Thailand, the Honda MSX 125 (MSX = Mini Street X-treme 125), the 125cc, 9.7 hp, four-stroke, two-valve, single-cylinder, fuel-injected fun machine will be a Spring 2013 model in markets around the world (no word on North America though).

    The ultimate pit bike for us Anglo-Saxons, the Honda MSX125 also serves as a practical and durable machine for markets where potholed asphalt is a luxury where roads rarely exist. With the seat just a touch above 30 inches off the ground (30.1″ to be exact), the new Honda Monkey is a friend to the short man (or woman) as well.

    Twelve inch wheels, a four-speed gearbox, 1.45 gallon fuel tank, and USD forks complete the consumer feature package, though Honda engineers have done some fancy packaging to the MSX125 to get its PGM-FI system and other electronics in place.

    Available in Asteroid Black Metallic, Pearl Himalayas White, Pearl Queen Bee Yellow, and Pearl Valentine Red, if there was ever a 125cc machine we wanted to zip thru traffic in, this might be it.

    Now that is a good looking 125CC bike.

    Advice is a form of nostalgia.
    Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.

    This one is very beautiful and high tech. but why this tiny motor? a 15 HP should have made it a nice 125 without fairing.

    I don't think MOJO is gonna be significant seller considering the options laid out in front of us. Mojo is still years behind, at least in my opinion to get an image for itself

    I got the point. But I really wanted someone to post a detailed review of Mojo, real soon.

    Let's see. It sure will happen, but it sure is gonna take its own sweet time
