Honda launched the cheapest motorcycle in its lineup. The new model is called the CG100 and has a price tag of only $ 670 (100,000 Nigerian naira), but unfortunately it is available only on the Nigerian market.
Needles to say, the bike is far from being impressive, as it comes as basic as it can be. But its modest character makes it a great choice for countries like Nigeria where versatile, cheap and efficient motorcycles are highly appreciated for their practicality.
The 2014 Honda CG100 can be easily recognized by its old school style, the square headlight, thin wheels and the one piece seat. The motorcycle’s ride is kept in check by a pretty rudimentary fork and dual rear shocks. You also get full drum brakes and a 110 cc engine.
Honda plans to build 40,000 units each year.
