Boon Siew Honda recently unveiled what it calls “Malaysia’s first long-distance moped bike”, the Honda Future. According to Boon Siew, their new kapcai is capable of traveling a maximum distance of 338 km on one full tank of petrol (5.6 litres) in the ECE40 Mode, which is best in class, and 100 km more than what the Wave 125 X Ultimo can do.
The Future is powered by a new 125 cc air-cooled engine. The four-stroke SOHC unit has 7.6% better fuel economy compared to the Wave 125, it is claimed. The Future’s rated 60.3 km/l is a 0.5 km/l improvement over the older bike. Quite substantial.
