Honda XRM 125–More positive feedback as a great choice of motorcycle for the Philippines

As many of you are aware I am in the process of replacing my Chinese made scooter that has a habit of bits falling off and the electrics failing at the sniff of damp air. Which brought it down to a very short list indeed as I don’t want a big chunky bike that if something fails I need to wait for airfreight or even worse the expense of it. I want a bike I can get here easily as well as the parts and good reliability.

The Honda XRM125 is one of the bikes on the list I am still tempted though on the Honda CB110 at the moment though due to its sleeker looks with the traditional top full tank. But Cemlyn has been kind enough to send in a couple of photos of his Honda XRM125’s as well as highly recommending them. Would also say here in Minglanilla the Habal-Habal (motorbike taxis) seem to mainly own them as well because of the reliability and cross off road design. The other main thing to remember though is the reliability of Honda’s are good and fuel efficiency is way better than my scooter.

    I’ve had mine for about 1 1/2 years now, and haven’t had any problems. Easy to maintain, although I’ve just changed the oil every 6 week or so, and changed the spark plugs at 8000 km.

    If you’re going a bit off road, or driving a steep hill where the road is not in its best condition, it’s much better than a bigger bike.

    Only downside is your ass gets a little tired on longer trips, the seat could be more comfortable.
