2021 Honda RS-X debuts in Malaysia in three shades
Japanese automaker Honda has revealed its 2021 RS-X motorcycle cub in Malaysia. Its arrival in India seems unlikely. The two-wheeler has an aggressive design and is available with an LCD instrument cluster as well as full-LED illumination. Under the hood, it draws power from a 149cc, single-cylinder engine that generates a maximum power of 15.78hp. Here are more details.
The two-wheeler is offered in three color options
The 2021 Honda RS-X has a headlight-mounted front apron, a stepped-up seat, an upswept exhaust, and arrowhead-shaped mirrors. It packs an all-LED lighting setup, an LCD instrument cluster, and rides on 17-inch alloy wheels. The vehicle has a seat height of 795mm and weighs 122kg. It is available in three shades, namely Tri-color edition, Lemon Ice Yellow, and Candy Caribbean Sea Blue.
It is fueled by a 16hp, 149cc engine
Under the hood, the 2021 Honda RS-X runs on a 149cc, single-cylinder engine that generates a maximum power of 15.78hp and a peak torque of 13.6Nm. The mill is linked to a 6-speed gearbox.
It gets telescopic front forks
To ensure the safety of the rider, the 2021 Honda RS-X motorcycle cub is equipped with disc brakes on both the front as well as rear wheels. Meanwhile, the suspension duties on the two-wheeler are taken care of by telescopic forks on the front side and a mono-shock unit with adjustable preload on the rear end.
