Honda Custom 125cc Motorcycle


This is one of my posts from August, 2006. At that time I wanted to get a Honda Custom motorcycle. The price was quite expensive for used motorcycles back in 2006. The reasoning was the it was nearly impossible to import new motorcycles to Vietnam. Nobody would pay these prices today. Below is the post from 11 and a half years ago.

Yesterday my friend, Phu, and I went around looking at motorcycles. I want something that is really comfortable on the highway. The Yamaha Nouvo is more of a city bike than a country bike. I am considering buying a Honda Custom but a used one will cost around $2,000 (the seller here tried to charge me $4,000). In Vietnam, the only available motorcycles are used. The Vietnamese government will not allow new motorcycles to be imported into Vietnam. Hence, any motorcycle you can find will be a bit pricey. At Vietnam ascends into the WTO, the Vietnamese government will allow the sale of new motorcycles. In the meantime:

(I like the 2nd Honda Custom)


  1. I really want a superbike but with the roads in Vietnam, they are too dangerous, even the 250cc bikes. Plus, all the superbikes are used since the Vietnamese govt. will not allow new superbikes to be imported into Vietnam. After ascending into the WTO, this is supposed to change.

    The Honda Custom is nice but I want to get the right price. I even like the Honda Rebel as well. Again, they are both used but you can easily find parts for them if something goes wrong.
