Honda has taken the popular Beat scooter and given it a fresh boost. The key highlight of the updated Beat is its new 110cc engine. This engine promises to provide more power and improved performance, which should be great news for riders looking for a bit more oomph on their daily commutes.
Honda Philippines created quite a buzz when they recently unveiled their latest models at the Market! Market! mall in Taguig BGC. This event was a star-studded affair, with notable attendees ranging from the media’s finest to influential vloggers and even top executives from Honda themselves. It was a testament to the brand’s commitment to engaging with its audience and showcasing its innovations in style.
One of the significant changes in this version of the Beat is the revised long-stroke design. This modification can have a substantial impact on the scooter’s performance and fuel efficiency. A longer stroke typically means more torque at lower RPMs, making it easier to navigate through city traffic and ensuring a smoother ride overall.
In addition to the mechanical improvements, Honda has also added some visual flair to the Beat. The introduction of new colors gives riders more choices to express their style. It’s not just about getting from point A to point B; it’s about doing it in style. Furthermore, what’s impressive about the updated Beat is that despite these changes, it retains the practicality that made it a hit in the first place. You still get ample luggage space, which is a crucial feature for urban commuters who need to carry their essentials with them.
Moreover, the inclusion of new LED lights enhances visibility, improving safety during nighttime rides. This is a significant update considering that good lighting is essential for any rider. Additionally, the BeAT also receives a handy charging port, as well as a semi-digital instrument cluster displaying all pertinent ride information.
Perhaps one of the most noteworthy aspects of the updated Beat is that it’s designed specifically for Filipino riders. This signals Honda’s commitment to understanding the unique needs and preferences of the local market. Whether it’s the road conditions, riding habits, or aesthetic preferences, Honda has taken all of these factors into account in the development of the Beat.
In terms of pricing and availability, the new Honda Beat 125 carries an SRP of P71,400 for the Playful variant, P72,400 for the Premium variant, and P74,400 for the 50th Anniversary model. Meanwhile, the updated Click 125 50th Anniversary retails for P83,900. Availability of the new models is expected by September of 2023.
