Taliban loves the Honda CG125

Written by:

Just as the news broke of the Honda CG110 that went on sale in Nigeria, we heard about another Honda that is making news, for all the wrong reasons though.  Apparently the CG125 is the 2-wheeled vehicle of choice for terrorists.

Their website featured an image with two men wearing keffiyehs and armed with AK-47 rifles and a RPG-7 grenade launcher astride what appears to be a Honda CG125. The image shows a few modifications such as the addition of engine guards which can double as mounting points for bags. One odd modification is a mount on the left handlebar for an MP3 player so that a rider could listen to the Qur’an on long rides.

I’m not sure how Honda’s PR department feels about this?
