Honda Philippines launches the new Honda XRM 125 series motorcycles proving that these ride continue to be in demand as a mode of transportation. With the ever-problematic traffic situation in the country, I’m not wondering why. If I can only drive one. Heck, I can’t even ride a bicycle. For those who can and is currently scouting for a new motorcycle ride, the newest Honda XRM is here for you.
I learned that Honda XRM series is a top-seller in the motorcycle industry. That makes Honda Philippines Inc the country’s number 1 motorcycle manufacturer and distributor. This is not surprising as Honda is an established brand for years. I can remember seeing these motorcycles even when I was still a child. And for Honda to continue topping the industry through these years, that means they have consistently provided motorcycles of the highest quality. The company executives present during the launch of the Honda XRM 125 pointed out that in every bike produced, Honda is committed to the highest goal of fulfilling every customer’s dream.
In 2003, it was the first motorcycle in the Philippines equipped with Automatic Headlight On (AHO). On 2004, it has already gained the number 1 position in terms of sales. On 2005, HPI reached 1 millionth production unit with the XRM. On 2007, Honda Philippines, Inc. launched XRM 125 – equipped with Euro2 compliant engine which is again the first in the Philippines. On 2008, the No. 1 most trusted motorcycle model in the Philippines with its new stripes was introduced. And then on 2010, giving the customers the power of choice, XRM trinity with 3 model variants – the Dual Sport, the Off road model and the Motard were launched.
The Honda XRM 125 Series has been unchallenged since it was first introduced as XRM 110 in 2002. Apparently, Filipinos love for the XRM is just unmatched. Designed and developed specifically for Philippine road conditions, Honda XRM is and will always be the country’s On/Off under-bone motorcycle king. The bike is made to challenge the extremes – from the paved roads of Metro Cities to the toughest terrains of Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao country roads. It is a powerful, rugged yet easy to ride bike.
A look at the motorcycles on display at the event, it’s tough, powerful and sporty. I learned that the Honda XRM is also the most modified model in the country– making it the bike with the most available accessories in the market. Honda introduces another innovation with the new Honda XRM125. This bike is now equipped with the face of the world-famous CRF Series motorbikes – a fusion of toughness, powerful agility and style! The Honda XRM 125 is available in 3 variants – the XRM125 Dual Sport considered as the peoples’ bike, the sleek ride XRM125 Motard for urban riders and the special edition XRM125 Dual Sport Extreme (DSX) designed to go beyond. All bikes are developed and designed with CRF DNA that will surely give Honda’s valued customer the real joy of riding both on/off road condition.
The built-to-last feature of XRM is now upgraded to CRF characteristics that will provide customers with years of trouble-free, low maintenance and riding enjoyment. Now, attention focus on the new headlight and front fender, which project the dynamic off-road look of Honda’s most popular CRF machine. The frame provides a low seat height and easy to reach ground that is appealing to Filipino riders. The broad comfortable seat offers ample room for two. The handle bar is ergonomically designed for safety On/Off road manoeuver. Braking duties for XRM125 Dual Sport is handled by wide front disk brake while for Motard and Dual Sport Extreme is a combination of rear and front disk brakes. Tyres are rugged, dual purpose treads designed to provide an easy comfortable ride on both roads. Total packaging and combination is so dynamic that is poised to stand out from the crowd and be another top selling model.
Introductory price for the new Honda XRM 125 series motorcycles is Php 64,500 for Dual Sports Model, Php 69,800 for Motard and Php 67,900 for Dual Sports Extreme. With the price, I’m sure the statistics of the motorcycle-riding public will grow again in the months to come. I can only drool at these rides. The new Honda XRM125 is readily available at all Honda 3S Shops Nationwide. From XRM125 that suits the Filipino lifestyle, to XR125L that is ready to step-up for the next challenge, to CRF250L that conquers greater heights, Honda Philippines, Inc. has now sealed the Philippines’ On/Off road bike line-up.
