Honda: The Dax is back!
The unique selling point typical of the new ST125 Dax is the T-shaped frame made of pressed steel plates, which runs from the steering head to the bottom of the seat, with a tall upper body and short running gear reminiscent of the stature of the dachshund, which led to the name of the first ST50 Dax in 1969.
The 2023 ST125 Dax continues the typical look of the original, with the frame, which also houses the tank, flexible enough for passenger use. The suspension consists of a $31 fork and dual rear shocks. The ST125 Dax features 12″ Minibike Balloon wheels with black die-cast aluminum wheels for easy urban agility. The classic look is completed by a chrome steering wheel, rear seat grab bar, headlights, taillights and turn signals in modern LED lighting technology and an attractive passive LCD display in the cockpit.
The air-cooled 124 cc SOHC single-cylinder engine delivers linear power and smooth torque – the centrifugal clutch and four-speed gearbox ensure comfortable driving, even with two people.
The new 2023 ST125 Dax will be available in two attractive color variants: Pearl Nebula Red and Pearl Cadet Gray, both with the classic Honda wing badge, Dax lettering and a model dog logo of the same name.
