Honda has updated the livery of the fuel-efficient bike, the Honda Future 125 Helmet-in that has been popular among commuters in Malaysia that are looking for a economy bike with big space under the seat. The fuel economy has been proven with the ECE40 Mode test that shows this bike can go all the way to 338 kilometers on one full tank. That is less petrol station stop to worry about. This is provided with the presence of 5.6 liter fuel tank with new 4-stroke SOHC 125cc engine that recorded 7.6% fuel improvement. Customers will be able to choose from two distinct variants of the same model, as well as a Special Edition. Variant 1 boasts sporty wheels, electric starter and front disc brakes; whilst Variant 2 combines the electric starter, sporty wheels and front and rear disc brakes. All two variants come in choices of three colours – Luminous Orange, Pearl Magellanic Black and Candy Scintillate Red. Interestingly, the Special Edition colour comes in Mat Charcoal Gray Metallic, and which features an electric starter, sporty wheels as well as front and rear disc brakes.
Practicality That Endures
The Honda Future features a larger 19-litre U-box that can easily accommodate a full-face helmet. The bigger 5.6 litre fuel tank also allows longer traveling distances, of up to 338km, 100km more than the Wave 125 X Ultimo, without the constant need for re-fuelling stops. Other innovative highlights include a side battery casing that allows for easy maintenance access, a push-seat function and automatic key lock shutters.
Unrivalled Fuel Efficiency and Eco-Friendliness
Grounded on the ECE40 MODE research, the fuel consumption of the Honda Future has been mapped at 60.3km per litre, a 0.5km per litre improvement as compared to the Wave 125 X Ultimo. The Euro 2 engine also provides improved fuel-burning efficiency and cleaner emissions that makes the Honda Future an eco-friendly motorcycle.
Comfort Comes First
The overall design cues of the Honda Future makes it perfectly adaptable to a range of riders of all shapes and sizes. In order to live up to the expectations of a long-distance moped, the Honda Future is built with a wider seat. The enlarged seat space allows for a more comfortable ride for the rider and pillion over long distances. An ingenious moulded front design also eliminates the need for the use of screws in order to reduce vibrations from the front cover.
Safety. For Your Peace Of Mind
The Honda Future includes a novel rear LED light that is more visible in any riding conditions. Night riding is also a lot more safer with the blue-lit speedometer and the integration of a fog light too.
