Honda Nepal has launched their new 125cc motorcycle, the Honda SP 125 BS6 in Nepal. Honda’s entry-level motorbikes like the Honda CB Shine, Honda CB Shine SP and the Honda CD 110 Dream are very popular in Nepal for their reliability and mileage. The CB Shine is still the favourite among many.
The SP 125, designed to meet the demands of this market, offers new features alongside BS6 emissions compliance. With jobs like ride-sharing, food delivery, and product delivery continuing to rise, there is a growing preference for lower CC bikes that offer adequate mileage and performance for city commuting. With its new features, the SP 125 has the potential to be the top choice for many as their first bike.
The motorbike will compete against the TVS Raider, Yamaha Saluto, Hero Super Splendor and Bajaj Pulsar 125.
