Model History

The CBR125R originally launched in 2004 to replace the NSR125, powered by a 124cc single cylinder engine and producing 13bhp at 10,000rpm.

In 2007 Honda introduced new sharper looks from the CBR600RR, fuel injection, a black finish to the swingarm and some tweaks to comply with Euro3 emission standards.

2011 was a complete re-design of the bike and bought the looks into line with the new CBR250R. The rear tyre increased in size while the seat height increased by 17mm and the exhaust took on a more sculpted form.

2017 saw it dropped due to Euro 4 regulations.
