  • 2021 Honda MSX 125 (Grom) Now Comes With A 5th Gear & Euro 5 Certification!


    Late last year Honda gave us word that a new, redesigned MSX 125 would be hitting most parts of the world as a 2021 model. Changes revealed on the global model gave some hints though, like the addition of a fifth gear, a new headlight, Euro 5 certification for the engine, and a full styling revamp, but we were left to ponder what the price tag or when would it be available.


    As noted in last year’s Euro release, the MSX 125 will also have new bodywork and a Euro 5-spec engine with a five-speed gearbox. As we’d hoped, the MSX 125 will get those major revisions, including a reworked 125cc engine and a five-speed transmission. The two-valve single-cylinder mill has a higher compression ratio (now 10.0:1) and meets Euro 5 emissions standards, and the addition of the fifth gear gave Honda the opportunity to add a larger 38-tooth final-drive sprocket for a bit more snap.


    The 125cc two-valve engine has a narrower bore and longer stroke than its predecessor (50mm x 63.1mm compared to 52.4mm x 57.9mm) as well as a higher compression ratio of 10.0:1 (9.3:1 previously). Another big part of the makeover for the 2022 model year is the new bodywork with pared-down styling. Because the MSX 125 has always been about easy customization, owners can get at the four main body panels via six big fasteners, allowing them to pop the panels off the steel backbone frame and mix and match colors for a simple way to swap looks. Also on the styling front is a new look for the engine, exhaust, wheels, and swingarm, which all get blacked out for a more up-to-date vibe; the wheels keep their signature 12-inch size, but feature a new design with a five-spoke pattern.


    You might notice a subtle change with the seat too; it’s flat rather than stepped and gets thicker padding. With that comes a new subframe, though the frame and suspension remain unchanged, and Honda is quick to point out that the saddle is still an easily cleared 30 inches off the tarmac. You’ll also see a more robust LCD display with provisions for a gear change indicator added to the speedo, tach, fuel gauge, clock, and twin tripmeters. Dig even deeper and you’ll find out that the mini moto’s 2022 iteration (the MSX 125’s third) now has a replaceable oil filter, ditching the previous oil spinner and screen for easier maintenance. There’s a redesigned exhaust pipe and muffler now designed as two separate parts, which should give customizers way fewer fits.


    For 2021, the MSX 125 has also boosted fuel capacity a smidge to 6 litres.

    As a bonus—or at least, instead of an unwelcome surprise— Honda is keeping the price tag in line with last year’s model, at a suggested US$3,399 for the base trim in the US market. Boon Siew Honda Singapore currently does not list the MSX 125 in their price list but we'll have a clearer picture of pricing in Singapore once the new revised models starts to hit our shores.


    But there are tastier options too, like the new special SP version which sports a gold finish on the fork, wheels, and brake calipers, and tucks in a yellow shock spring out back for an extra pop. Then there’s the higher-spec MSX 125 ABS, which again is expected to cost a premium over the base model.


    To sum up, the 2022 MSX 125 can be had in Queen Bee Yellow or Matte Black Metallic for the base trim; the MSX 125 SP with its stylish graphics and gold finishes for slightly more; or the MSX 125 ABS, available only in Candy Blue, for a higher premium on top of that. The bikes will be available sometime in 2021 and we will update on availability soon.

      When Honda unveiled the City Adventure concept bike at the 2015 EICMA show in Milan it was frankly confusing—the firm didn’t reveal any specs or information alongside the bike, nor did it try to justify the existence of a machine that attempted to bridge the yawning gap between adventure bikes and scooters.

      So when that concept became a production reality a year later as the 745cc, parallel-twin-powered X-ADV, combining NC750 underpinnings with those urban-adventure looks and a surprisingly high spec and high price, it was even more of a surprise. Now the X-ADV is in its second generation and a success in Europe, despite costing 45 percent more than the NC750X adventure bike that shares the same engine.

      The Honda ADV150, which is a mini ADV750 if you will and competes in the very crowded Class 2B scooter segment, has grown to become on of the most popular scooters here in Singapore due to its rugged good looks, higher ground clearance. Now the Japanese firm is planning to launch a third “ADV” model: the ADV350. Having filed trademark applications for the “ADV350″ name earlier this year, Honda now has model type approval in Europe, and the resulting documents give us the first glimpse of genuine specifications for the bike. We expect the Honda ADV350 to arrive in Singapore soon and it will go up against the likes of the XMax 300, Forza 350 (which it shares a lot of similar parts with), and other middleweight scooters. 

      Mechanically, unsurprisingly, the ADV350 will employ the Forza 350 scooter’s 330cc single and much of the Forza’s chassis. Honda
      has shorten route to production and increased cost efficiencies by using the Honda’s Forza 350 as its base, carrying over the same 330cc single-cylinder engine and twist-and-go transmission. There’s no change in performance in the transplant, with Honda’s documents showing a peak power of 29 hp at 7,500 rpm.

      The chassis, too, appears likely to be borrowed from the Forza 350, as most of the dimensions are close to those of the conventional scooter model. The ADV350′s wheelbase is fractionally longer at 1,520mm (59.9 inches) instead of 1,510mm (59.5 inches), which is likely to be the result of larger, off-road-style wheels and tires instead of the Forza’s 15-inch front, 14-inch rear combo. Weight is similarly up a fraction, going from the Forza’s 406 pounds to 410 pounds. A second version of the ADV350 has also been approved with the same physical dimensions, but a weight of 415 pounds, suggesting it features extra equipment as standard.

      What the Honda ADV350 could look like fully kitted out
      The ADV350′s overall length, at 86.6 inches, is a fraction longer than the 84.5-inch Forza, again probably due to the larger wheels. It’s also wider at 35.2 inches across instead of 29.7 inches, pointing at broader bars, but even though it’s sure to have more ground clearance than the Forza, the ADV350 is lower at the top of its screen, which can be adjusted to give a height range from 51 inches to 56.3 inches. In comparison, the Forza sits 59.3 inches tall.

      Another modified version of the Honda ADV350
      Honda’s strategy with current ADV models is now complete for all the licenses classes in Singapore, with the ADV150 catering to the Class 2B riders, the ADV350 catering to the Class 2A riders, and the X-ADV750 catering to the Class 2 riders. For those of you currently riding the ADV150, will this 330cc single cylinder engine be a worthy upgrade? Let us know in the comments section below!
