From The Experts

Things we like

The light weighted character of the Honda Dash 125, with the kerb weight of just 103 kgs, it is easy to maneuver for tackling city traffic. This is very helpful for those who are new to the world of two-wheeler motoring, as handling the Honda Dash 125 is very easy and convenient.

It is not only the handling which is benefited by the light kerb weight of the Honda Dash 125. The four-stroke, single-cylinder, air-cooled, 125cc engine in the Honda Dash, with its power output of 10 PS, makes it the most powerful cub class bike of its category.

Despite being an entry-level cub class bike, the Honda Dash 125 is mechanically well sorted with the presence of alloy wheels and disc brakes at both the ends. With this, the Honda Dash 125 is one of the most affordable cub class bikes which gets disc brakes on both the wheels.

Things we don't like

The Honda Dash 125 does get a full LED headlamp which looks nice and premium. However, the throw of the light from the headlamp isn’t too great in darkest of the conditions.

The Honda Dash 125 does come with a long single-piece seat, which however lacks the cushioning. This can male longer commutes not so comfortable.

The full analog instrument console of the Honda Dash 125 has got a unique gear indicator. However, apart from it, the console looks a bit dated and odd due to loud colors in the background.
