Honda’s premium Neo Sports Café 125 gets a power and torque boost from an all-new DOHC 4V engine, improving performance across the board. It also receives a major suspension upgrade – high-quality 41mm Showa’s ‘Separate Function’ Big Piston (SFF-BP) USD forks, the first 125cc motorcycle in the world to do so.
When embarking on a two-wheeled career, there are certain fundamentals that every rider looks for from their first motorcycle: an easy-to-ride chassis, with engaging real-world engine performance, and super-agile handling. Wrap those fundamentals, however, in distinctive, classy styling and add a host of premium specifications, and the result can be an extra special machine with which to begin a two-wheeled career.
It was for new riders looking for this kind of package that Honda introduced the all-new CB125R in 2017. The smallest member of Honda’s minimalist, bare-boned ‘Neo Sports Café’ family, the CB125R was launched alongside the CB300R and the flagship CB1000R, and represented a bold new, premium addition to the ranks of Honda’s entry level machines.
Now, for 2021, the CB125R gets a brand-new engine and major front suspension upgrade, keeping it at the head of a competitive field, and at the top of many young riders’ wish list.
