Honda releases new tough terrain farm bike
Honda says its new release, the XR125L is a rugged and reliable work horse that will suit every farmer

The model will be available in Honda dealerships nationwide from May 2013.

The XR125L is powered by a quiet and smooth running single cylinder 125cc engine, a 12-litre fuel tank and 5 speed gearbox that allows for long hours of operation around the farm.   

Honda says its robust suspension will absorb bumps on tough terrains and allow for various farm tasks such as following slow moving cattle or transporting essential equipment around the farm safely.

A low seat height and comfortable riding position takes strain away from riders while the powerful headlight and indicators adds to the practicality of the machine.

The bike is powered up by an electric kick-start while a back-up start is also possible if necessary.
