From Honda in the Philippines. I wish they would sell something like this in the US.

XRM125:







And only 64,500 php! ($1,450)

I would take that adventure version of the Zuma 125 over this. The Honda looks like an electric powerwheels kids toy.

Are they going to fight?

Is it a dual sport, or a street bike for really bad roads?

I love how the chain is all protected for all those rough, off road duties

I'd rather go find a nice used Trail 90 in orange, please.

That thing is ugly and cheap. Where is the scabbard on that thing? They must need it to fight each other off since its a duel bike.

I'm going to go against the flow here and say this thing would stomp a Trail 90 in the woods. If the engine is anything like or slightly better than my 125 engine, this bike will smoke a trail 90. And it has disc brakes up front, definitely more ground clearance, and is much lighter. It's an underbone evolved from the old Cub design, except it's lighter, quicker, more suspension travel and better stopping. I'll bet it has also 12 volt electrics.

To me it looks like the homemade bikes we saw all over northern and northwestern Thailand. Underbones with dirtbike forks, an extended swingarm, taller shock and knobbies. They looked like fun to us!

That looks good... Watercooled to boot?

Gotta say I agree with Yamageek. I've got two CT-90 s and I just never use them mainly because of the 6 volt systems that I have to charge before I can go anywhere. I tend to grab my Yamaha Vino cause I know it will always start.
