Honda today unveiled the CTX700N naked model and the CTX700 model equipped with cowls at the International Motorcycle Show in Chicago as the first motorcycles embodying Honda’s new CTX (Comfort Technology Experience) concept.

2013 Honda CBR250R Minor Model Change livery (Tri-co RM19,999, Repsol RM20,499 and Mugen RM19,499) and Honda Integra 700cc Maxi Scooter (RM64,688)

Honda Integra 700cc Dual Clutch Transmission Maxi Scooter on Boon Siew Honda Malaysia website – RM64,688


Boon Siew Honda has silently updated their website with the newcomer in their lineup, the Honda Integra. This Integra is a maxi scooter with 670cc 2-cylinder engine that can provide 38.1kW at 6,250 RPM and 62Nm of pulling power at 4,750 RPM. This bike is absolutely larger than the recently launched Honda PCX 150. One of the interesting features that can be found on this maxi scooter is the 2nd generation of 6-speed Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT) from Honda. Previously, this type of DCT has been used on Honda DN-01, but that is the 1st generation. Based on the power of this bike, it can be a logical choice for executives who wants to escape from traffic but thinks that the Honda PCX 150 is not powerful enough. Anyway, at RM64,688, we need to think twice about it since that is almost 6 times the price of the PCX. Maybe you think 6 times, before buying this bike, but at least, you’ll have a choice. This kind of bikes reminds me of Yamaha T-Max which is very popular in Europe since the regulations there needs the scooter or bike to have more than 150cc engine to be legal to be taken to highway. In Malaysia, this kind of maxi scooter is almost non-existant, only recently being introduced by Sym Maxsym 400i (UPDATE: There is the market for maxi scooter in Malaysia. There is BMW C600 and C650GT, Gilera GP500 and Nexus 50, Piaggio MP3 and Xevo 400. Yamaha T-Max, Suzuki Burgman and others are also available via parallel import. Thanks to reader JalanJalan for the info). For Honda to bring this bike to Malaysia is a brave action by itself and I know they are trying to wins the hearts of the riders again in Malaysia. Well, this makes me happy. 8 more pictures after the jump:  Continue reading “Honda Integra 700cc Dual Clutch Transmission Maxi Scooter on Boon Siew Honda Malaysia website – RM64,688”
