Honda’s mod­ern in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the mon­key bike is a big hit with city com­muters. Fun, funky and to­tally unique, it’s pow­ered by a hardy sin­gle-cylin­der air-cooled mo­tor that puts out just shy of 10bhp. The chas­sis is great fun, and weigh­ing in at just 101kg it’s bril­liantly chuck­able, and will even lighten the dullest of win­ter com­mutes by tempt­ing you to pull lit­tle skids and cheeky wheel­ies when­ever you get the chance. The MSX is big news in the States and Ja­pan too (where it’s known as the Grom), mean­ing there’s a healthy af­ter­mar­ket ac­ces­sories cat­a­logue avail­able too fea­tur­ing all kinds of tun­ing and styling up­grades.

Made in Thai­land, but with fairly de­cent build qual­ity and su­perb style, the MSX125 may be small, but it’s cer­tainly not dull – and it could well de­velop into a fu­ture clas­sic too.
