Generations of motorcyclists were raised on Honda Trail motorcycles. After selling upwards of 700,000 Trails during the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s, Big Red returns to its working class roots with the re-introduction of the 2021 Honda Trail 125 ABS. Originally unveiled in concept form during the 2018 Tokyo Motor show (read the Here’s The Honda CT125 Trail Cub Concept Bike article), we finally swing a leg over this fifth-generation dual-sport in this review.
In the spirit of the holidays, we enlist the help of Kris Kringle, giving us his seat-of-the-sleigh assessment as he delivers Mattel Hot Wheels toys to children in need via the US Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots program.
