The Honda RS125 has set a new speed record by achieving a two-way average speed of 146.77mph. Scott Kolb broke the 27-year-old world record on the Bonneville Salt Flats with the custom-framed Honda RS125.
The Honda RS125 features radically altered geometry and aesthetics. In order to achieve these feat, Scott had to modify the bike with some additional features. He stretched the bike by 40 inches and replaced the un-aerodynamic radiator with a radically streamlined fairing and also water-to-water chillers for maximum performance.
