The Dax made its debut at the tail end of the Swinging Sixties, when cultural creativity – music, fashion and film, most notably, was at a peak. Already, in 1963, Harold Wilson, the then-leader of the Labour Party had talked about the “white heat” of technological innovation. So, it’s no surprise that a bike such as the Honda Dax was devised and manufactured during these heady times.
The modern-day Dax 125 possesses the easy-going style of its late-1960s/1970s precursor – and since technology has evolved substantially since then, it rides even better than before. The reasons for this are numerous. For instance, the bike boasts an upgraded frame, delivers enhanced suspension, produces increased braking power and outputs more oomph than ever.
Today, the Dax is as relaxing to ride as it was back in the day, even more so, in fact – and it’s a whole lot of fun too.
