Boon Siew Honda Launches All New Honda RS-X

Press Information

Penang, 1 November 2021 – Boon Siew Honda introduces Super Sport Essence in CUB with the All New Honda RS-X, to deliver a motorcycle to Malaysian users with a perfect union of sporty styling, superior performance and advanced features. The RS-X invokes its Super Sports essence with an aggressive, muscular and mechanical design, a powerful 150cc DOHC engine, EURO 4 compliant with ABS and several hi-tech features to give a comfortable and confident riding experience.

Some of RS-X highlights are:

  • Powerful 150cc DOHC, 6-speed engine for high speed and responsive acceleration.
  • 1-channel ABS for added braking confidence.
  • Full LED lighting & Dual LED Headlights for aggressive image and visibility.
  • Honda Seat opener, Sealed Chain, Full Digital Speedometer for added convenience.

For its sporty styling, RS-X focuses on an aerodynamically designed full cowl appearance, an aggressive front face with dual LED headlights and a sleek super slim tail.

The all LED setting not only increases the presence of RS-X on road, but also increases the visibility when riding under different lighting conditions. The muffler not only resembles big bike design, but also creates an attractive sound, giving the RS-X a distinctive racing feeling. Its high performance is the result of a 150cc liquid-cooled DOHC engine combined with a 6-speed transmission, capable of exerting a peak power of 11.8 kW@9,000rpm and torque of 13.6Nm @7,000 rpm. The PGM-FI (Programmed Fuel Injection) feature, allows significant fuel saving with reducing emission.

The RS-X is equipped with hi-tech features like the 1-channel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) which allows rider comfort and braking confidence. This all new RS-X is also equipped with features to increase convenience like the Honda seat opener, sealed chain drive and a fully Digital Speedometer giving a plethora of information to rider for a safer and relaxed riding experience. This model is also environmentally friendly complying with EURO4 emission standards.

The launching event for RS-X was held virtually due to ongoing pandemic restriction and marked with a special message from Mr. Masayuki Igarashi, Chief Officer for Regional Operations (Asia & Oceania), Honda Motor Co., Ltd.
