Penang, 5 September 2013: Boon Siew Honda (M) Sdn Bhd today launched the new motorsport-inspired Honda Wave Dash R and S Series.
The two new bikes, which feature sporty aerodynamics, styling and performance, are set to raise the bar in the mid-size cub segment of the local market.
“The Wave Dash R and S are inspired by Honda Racing’s rich heritage in motorsports and are targeted at customers who want a bike that stands out. Furthermore, the Wave Dash R is available in a luminous orange with Respol Honda’s trademark styling,” said Mr Satoshi Okada, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Boon Siew Honda.
He said the new Wave Dash is built on four cornerstones – Dashing, Advanced Style, Sporty and High-Performance – and offers an adrenaline-filled ride while maintaining excellent fuel economy, affordability, reliability and durability.
More importantly, both the Wave Dash R and S feature tubeless tyres – a first for Honda Cubs – for improved safety.
“Another attraction is the inclusion of double-disk brakes for the Wave Dash R, which is a first for the 110 cc segment,” Mr Okada said.
Both the Wave Dash R and S are powered by an advanced 4-stroke 110cc engine that produces a maximum horsepower of 6.18kW (8.39PS) at 7,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 8.15 Nm (0.83kgf.m) at 5,500rpm, while maintaining Honda’s excellent fuel-efficiency standards.
Moreover, the new Wave Dash’ gearing ratios offer a smooth performance and excellent ride characteristics. The engine is also compliant with EURO 2 standards for low CO2 emissions.
Class-leading Safety Standards
Safety isn’t compromised either in the new Wave Dash as both feature 17-inch durable tubeless tyres. The tubeless tyres prevent the sudden dissipation of air in the unfortunate event of a tyre puncture, which in turn allows the rider to safely bring the bike to a stop.
Additionally, the new Wave Dash R is equipped with double disc brakes which offer superior braking performance during emergencies or other unfavourable conditions. The new Wave Dash S is equipped with a single disc brake.
Both the Wave Dash R and S feature motorsport-inspired aesthetics to truly reflect the exciting and dynamic ride the bikes have to offer. The new Wave Dash features a new stylish white halogen headlight that makes the bike hard to miss while on the move or at a standstill.
In addition, a distinctive crystal eyeline winker design and bright illuminated tail light with multi-reflectors enhance the visibility of the new Wave Dash for trailing motorists while raising the bike’s sporty presence on the street.
The sporty design also extends to a wide-angled multi-function speedometer with a clear display, 3D leg shields which improves aerodynamics and protects the rider from road debris, sporty exhaust muffler, exhaust heat shield and five-spoke sport rims.
The Wave Dash R and S are available in Vivacity Red, Pearl Magellanic Black, Luminous Orange and Force Silver Metallic while the Repsol Honda-inspired Luminous Orange is exclusively available for the Wave Dash R. The showroom price for Wave Dash S is priced at RM5,029.00 while the Wave Dash R is priced at RM5,289.00 and the Wave Dash Repsol design is RM5,419.00. Both come with a two year or 20,000 km manufacturing warranty.
