New Honda SP160 will utilizes SP125’s sporty profile, while borrowing the engine and other hardware from Unicorn 160
While introducing new products helps target a larger audience base, it isn’t necessary to start from scratch every time. An easier and cost-effective way is to use an existing platform to develop new products. Sometimes, the best of two or more products can be combined to create something new and exciting.
A similar strategy is being used by Honda for developing SP160, a mix of Unicorn and SP125. While Unicorn is preferred for its well-rounded design and powerful performance, SP125 is popular for its sporty profile. A combination of these aspects has potential to create a bestseller.
Honda SP160 features
