When Honda re-issued the 125 as a trail bike rather than a street machine, off road accouterments took the place of road trim. The high plastic front fender and mud flap come from the MT 125 two-stroke enduro. The rear fender is also plastic. The seat and Elsinore-style steel gas tank come indirectly from the two-stroke enduro bikes. Also from the MTs are the handlebars, levers, controls, instruments and fork assembly. A final trail touch is the inclusion of the block pattern trials-type tires.
