    There's a thread on this in Battle Scooters, but it really deserves exposure here, as it's small displacement motorcycle. The MSX125 seems to be a new type of small size Honda, like an updated Monkey or Dax. Apparently, it's designed to be a "world bike." Might it come to the USA?

    I think it would be really cool, and I would be interested, but I for one would be very surprised if it made it stateside.

    It would be a really fun little back road/city bike.

    It's obviously aimed at a market where there are no lawyers:lol3 Can you imagine seeing this add geared toward the U.S.A.

    Cool little ride

    That is why it will not come to the U.S., where even the suggestion of possible danger is illegal.

    I live out in the middle of nowhere and this bike would be incredibly impractical for me, but damn that looks like fun! Also I'm 6'0" so probably a little tall for it as well. However I can see that being a perfect bike for in town, shorter riders looking for something with a clutch.

    Kinda reminds me of a motard'ed KD80X

    It's kind of refreshing really -- over here most guys think they need a $25k Screaming Bad Ass Conan the Destroyer with Extra Factory Accessory Chrome to get the girl.

    In the UK & Europe, if you are aged 17-19, you are restricted to 125cc/15bhp.

    So if you're going to be impressing the girls in your late teens, it'll be on a 125 :D
