EX5 Overview

Honda EX5 is by far the most favourite Honda bike that has impressed a large audience with cheap mobility feature. Its current version, EX5 Fi, was first launched in Malaysia in 1987 and has sold over 2 million units back then. In this span of time, Honda EX5 has also witnessed many changes and many revamped versions during all these years.

The latest 2020 version dons new graphics, layout and appeal and looks refreshingly new. It comes with two new exterior shades (Pearl Magellanic Black and Pearl Nightfall Blue), and the two new variants - cast and alloy-spoked wheel.  The wheel trim is alloy based which is surrounded by chrome headlights and there is also a rear passenger grab rail in the alloy variant.  The models are priced at RM 5,009 and RM 4,783, respectively. Under the chassis of EX5 is a 110 cc air-cooled, single-cylinder engine supported by Honda’s PGM-Fi system, that has the capacity to churn out 8.6 PS of maximum power at 7,500 rpm and 8.62 Nm peak torque at 5,500 rpm. The suspension is taken care by telescopic front fork and twin rear shock absorbers. The drum brakes are present to handle the braking at both ends. EX5 locks horns against Honda’s own Wave Alpha, homegrown Modenas Kriss MR1, and SYM Bonus 110 SR. 

Honda EX5 Design

Honda EX 5 has some amazing some designing which holds relevance even after so many years of its existence. EX 5 has so many competitors alongside but despite that, its design is unmatched and unbeatable. On its 30th anniversary I 2017, EX5 was overhauled with major cosmetic changes. The most prominent feature being the side panels and chrome-plated emblem on the front. Right beneath it lies the headlight assembly. The front apron is flat in design to give the rider strong protection against the winds. Within the handlebars, we see the large and functional indicator, giving the front fascia a strong style quotient. The electric start version comes with black alloy wheels while the kickstart version comes with spoked wheels.

Dimensions wise the EX 5 measures 1923 mm (L) x 696 mm (W) x 1046 mm (H). The wheelbase at 1212 mm makes it easy to roll the bike in busy city traffic roads. The seat height is 745 mm which makes it very convenient for short heighted people. There are 17-inch wheels front and rear along with 70/90 and 80/90 tires at both ends. Honda offers the bike in varied colour options including Euphoria Red Metallic, Vital Blue Metallic, and an almost black Mariana Purple Metallic. 

EX5 Ride & Handling

The suspension set-up is handled by 81 mm telescopic front forks while the rear gets dual 68 mm shock absorbers that are adjustable with a pre-loading feature. The whole suspension set-up enables the rider to have better control and stability to the bike. With a weight of under 100 kg, it is easier to manoeuvre the bike on busy city roads.

Honda EX5 Braking & Safety

At the heart of EX 5 lies a 109.17 cc air-cooled, single-cylinder, OHC engine producing 8.35 hp at 7,500 rpm and 8.4 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. It is mated to a 4-speed transmission gearbox that uses a wet centrifugal clutch. The engine is Euro 3 compliant and is also fuel injected since its launch in 2015. The engine is highly refined and reliable, boasting 58.3 kmpl, this is naturally certified as an energy-efficient vehicle.

EX5 Verdict

Honda EX5 Fi is going to be the best Honda bike segment version. Given its solid design, bulletproof engine and affordable price, EX5 carry an unmatched legacy that you would definitely like to treasure. If you are looking for a light-weight sleek bike which is also fuel-efficient, EX5 is one of the appropriate models available in the market. The air-cooled engine quality is smooth and strong.
