Fresh off the launch of the all-new Click 160, Honda Philippines (HPI) opened its display at this year’s Makina Moto Show with the launch of yet another new model: the Wave RSX.
This is the newest iteration of Honda’s famed nameplate. It gets updated styling with a familiar V-shaped lamps on the front end. This is similar to the design of Honda’s other scooters like the Click and ADV, only this appears to house only the signal lamps on the Wave RSX. For the most part, though, the bike still has a very recognizable Wave physiqu and silhouette.
