What’s made in Nigeria, has two wheels, and costs barely more than a new XBox? Why, the new CG110 motorcycle, of course!
Made by Nigerians, for Nigerians, this new machine shows Big Red can still offer a motorcycle with a low price tag, if they want to. According to a Honda press release, the bike costs 100,000 naira in Nigera. That works out to about $675 CAD. To put that in perspective, a new XBox One retails for $500 right now; add in a few accessories and games, and you’d be over the price tag of the CG110!
You don’t get a lot of motorcycle with the CG110; it’s got super-spindly forks, drum brakes, and styling straight from the 1970s (square headlight! twin shocks!). But hey, who’s going to notice all that low-spec hardware when you’ve got three children, a couple grandparents, a few goats and a basket of lentils all strapped down to the machine?
Still, it’s too bad we can’t get a machine at even a remotely close price tag to this in North America – or maybe XBox Ones wouldn’t be so popular to begin with.
