What Is It?

The Honda CB125R is a premium naked bike with a distinct retro feel. It's powered by a liquid cooled 124.7 cc single cylinder engine, producing 13.1 bhp at 10,000 rpm and maximum torque at 8,000 rpm.

Features include:

  • Steel frame and swingarm
  • 296 mm wavy disc up front with Nissin radial two piston caliper
  • 220 mm wavy disc at the rear with Nissin single piston caliper
  • Dual channel ABS with IMU
  • 41 mm Showa upside down fork
  • Showa rear shock with adjustable pre-load
  • LED lighting all round
  • Inverted LCD dash with backlight
  • 6 speed gearbox with gear position indicator

The engine is essentially the same as the CBR125R in a new chassis and the ABS system uses an IMU but only to give front-back measurements, not the full lean angle aware ABS you find on the more expensive bikes.

Check out that exhaust though! Lovely, small and tucked away, in the age of giant Euro 4 monsters.

Honda's Neo Cafe Racer styling is shared with the larger CB300R and CB1000R. The 5-spoke 17" wheels take a Dunlop Sportmax GPR-300 110/70 tyre at the front and 150/60 at the rear.

  • 2018-2020: Black, matt black, white, red
