A limited edition 2017 Honda EX5 Dream Fi has been launched by Malaysian Honda motorcycle distributors Boon Siew Honda. Retailing at RM4,874.94, this special edition kapchai comes in a special paint job, along with other embellishments.

Unique to the EX5 Dream Fi Limited Edition is a pair of factory-fitted alloy wheels, shod with tubeless tyres. This is a popular aftermarket upgrade with EX5 Dream riders, as the tubeless tyres are more puncture resistant than the standard tube tyres on spoked wheels.

Being a mainstay on Malaysian roads since the 1950s, today’s Honda EX5 Dream Fi is the culmination of 50 years of kapchais, with its air-cooled, single-cylinder 109.1 cc engine. Fed by Honda’s PGM-Fi, the EX5 Dream puts out a claimed 8.35 hp at 7,500 rpm and 8.4 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm.

With this limited edition kickstart only version of the EX5 Dream Fi, Boon Siew intends to start a trend of collectible cubs for fans. In this case, the Honda EX5 Dream Fi Limited Edition also comes with chrome logos, as well as chromed passenger grab rail and headlight garnish.

Retailing at RM4,874.94, including GST, the 2017 Honda EX5 Dream Fi Limited Edition will be in dealerships from today, beginning in Penang and Kedah, followed by the rest of the country. The standard model Honda EX5 Dream Fi – with spoked wheels and tubed tyres – is sold at RM4,715.94 for kickstart, and RM4,959.74 for electric start.
