Honda SP 125 rivals the TVS Raider 125.
Both bikes are focused on being sportier 125cc commuters.
TVS Raider stands out for its segment-leading performance, features, and styling. However, the TVS Raider is still available in its Carburetor avatar for the Nepali market to keep things affordable.
In contrast, the Honda SP will bank on its reliability and brand history. If it gets the pricing right, then the battle between the two offerings will be interesting.
