Things are on the up for local Honda bikes institution Boon Siew Honda. The firm has been on the offensive eversince the festive Hari Raya holidays culminated, bringing forth a number of new and refreshed models.
Here’s a quick recap of the firm’s recent launches.
CB250R & CB1000R Launched
Things kicked off with the debut of the new CB250R and CB1000R duo during its Hari Raya open house held at the Sepang International circuit. Setting both these bikes apart are their striking ‘Neo Sports Café’ design.
Starting with the CB1000R, it harnesses a liquid-cooled 998cc in-line four-cylinder heart that delivers rough 143hp and 104Nm to power the rear wheel through a six-speed chain-drive setup.
Notable features include a pair of Showa Separate Function Fr Fork Big Piston unit (SFF-BP), a pair of dual radial-mount four-piston front calipers grabbing a pair of 310mm floating discs supplemented with a 2-channel ABS suite, not forgetting full-LED lighting all around to supplement its striking design.
Available in two colour choices, the CB1000R naked street bike commands a base price of RM74,999. A two-year or 20,000km warranty is included in said price.
For the budget conscious, there’s the smaller yet more affordable CB250R to consider. Essentially, this is the CB1000R’s smaller, quarter-litre sized sibling. This one packs a liquid-cooled 249cc single-cylinder that thumps out 27hp and 23.3Nm.
Notably, it boasts features commonly found on much larger machines such as the tapered rubber-mounted steel handlebar, LCD instrument display and full LED lighting.
Availble in three colour choices, the CB250R commands a base price tag of RM22,999. A two-year or 20,000km warranty is included in said price.

In the weeks after their launch event in Sepang, Boon Siew Honda then announced the availability of the updated Honda MSX 125 SF minimoto and PCX 150 scooter models.
With the MSX 125 SF, little has changed apart from the introduction of several new and racy colours and graphics. This pint-sized cult favourite, which packs a peppy 125cc heart, commands a base price of just RM10,499.
