Im am not so good at english but i wil try to explain what a dax is.
Lets start the Dax was introduced in 1969. Its a Honda ST 50 some versions had bigger displacement they where called ST 70 ST 90. The name dax came from the place where mopeds reassembeld in Dahcslunde (i think its what the city is called, anyway its something wtch starts with dahcs) Too when you asked, as far as im am informed they are still produced. But maybe not by Honda, i think its Jincheng or something in china.
The moped has the honda 4stroke SOCH engine. It has 3 gears and automatic clutch. its the same engine witch is on a Honda CF50 chaly. Theres is a brake pedal, a gearpedal and a kickstarter.On the handle bars theres only a frontbrake handle no clutchhandle beacause of the automatic clutch. Its got 10 inch weels. The handle bars and the bars you have your feet on when you drive can be folded so it can be transportet easy. The Fuel tank is under the seat, The speedo is build in the headlight.
I guees that was the look. I will try to find a pic.
Why it so popular you will understand when you see the pic. the reliable engine could allso be a reason.
Yes i think it has been imported to the US of A
If any of the things about a dax that i made puplic now is wrong please let me now.
