First introduced in Malaysia in 2011, the 2018 Honda Dash 125 is now updated and priced at RM5,999 for the base model Type ‘S’ with single disc brake. It is joined by the double disc brake Type ‘R’ Wave Dash 125 at RM6,299 and Repsol Edition at RM6,499, with prices excluding road tax, insurance and registration.

Up in displacement from the previous generation 109 cc Dash FI, the Dash 125 produces 9.85 hp at 8,000 rpm and 9.54 Nm of torque from its 124.89 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled, two-valve engine. A four-speed automatic gearbox drives a chain to the rear wheel and fuelling is by Honda’s PGM-FI.

Suspension is with conventional telescopic forks and twin shock absorbers adjustable for pre-load. Depending on model, the Dash 125 uses a hydraulic front disc brake and either a drum rear brake or hydraulic disc rear brake.

Seat height on the Dash 125 is 767 mm from the ground with wet weight claimed to be 103 kg. Starting is with electric and kick-starting. The Dash 125 will be used in the Malaysian Cub Prix series in the Honda One-Make Race, with the race now being renamed the “Honda Dash 125 Challenge.”

There are four colour options for the 2018 Honda Dash 125 – Pearl Magellanic Black, Vivacity Red, Pearl Nightfall Blue and Repsol racing livery. Deliveries of the Dash 125 at Boon Siew Honda Malaysia dealers will begin this week.
