After launching the base model RS-X in Malaysia in November last year, Honda has now launched its new MotoGP-inspired Repsol Edition in the country. Although he is unlikely to come to India anytime soon, his unique and classy personality deserves careful consideration and we bring it to you through this picture gallery.
With the sharp edges of its body panels, its wide and muscular front apron and its large 17-inch alloy wheels, the RS-X already stands out visually.
Today, the Repsol Edition takes its distinctiveness to a whole new level. Much like Honda’s MotoGP bikes, this version of the chassis sports a garish two-tone paint scheme featuring shades of white and red along with streaks of orange.
To add to its visibility, Honda fitted the RS-X with 17-inch alloy wheels dipped in a bright orange color.
Although it looks like a maxi sport scooter, similar to the Yamaha Aerox 155, the RS-X has a six-speed transmission system, just like motorcycles.
The gearbox is mated to a liquid-cooled 149cc single-cylinder engine that produces 15.8hp at 9,000rpm and 13.6Nm at 7,000rpm.
As for the features, there is an LCD instrument cluster, full LED lighting setup and a 4.5 liter fuel tank. The empty weight of the RS-X is 122 kg.
Production of the Honda RS-X Repsol Edition will be limited to just 5,000 units to maintain its exclusivity. And no, it will not come to India due to lack of demand for subs in our country.
