Honda Philippines (HPI) will begin exporting locally manufactured Honda XRM125 units to New Zealand starting April this year.

“We see the exportation of these motorcycle units as the perfect opportunity to put the Philippine-made motorcycles on the map since we can consider ourselves as a motorcycle-riding country,” says HPI president Susumu Mitsuishi. “It can also help the economy recover as we hope this opportunity can provide and sustain jobs in the manufacturing industry in the future.”

Manufactured at HPI’s facility in Tanauan, Batangas, the XRM125 has sold more than 1.83 million units since it was first introduced in the local market in December 2001.

This dual-purpose bike, equipped with a sturdy chassis and durable suspension system, is good for both rugged and well-paved roads. A pair of hand protectors and an engine sump guard come as standard features. It is powered by a 125cc SOHC air-cooled single-cylinder engine that generates 9.6hp at 7,500rpm and 9.55Nm of torque at 6,500rpm. The new model comes with styling upgrades like the CRF-inspired headlight and digital panel.

With an SRP from P67,900 to P73,600, the new XRM125 is offered in the following combinations: Ceramic Gray, Dark Green, Fighting Red, Black, and Aura Blue.
