Honda has begun exporting the SP125 commuter motorcycle to New Zealand and Australia. A shipment carrying around 250 units of the SP125, manufactured at Honda’s Tapukara Plant in Rajasthan, was dispatched earlier this month.

The SP125 is powered by a 10.7hp, 10.9Nm, 124cc air-cooled, single-cylinder engine mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The SP125 boasts of features such as a silent starter, fully digital instrumentation, range indicator, average fuel efficiency, side-stand cut-off, LED headlamp, engine start/stop tech, eco indicator and gear position indicator.
