CB125R Introducing the CB125R Starting From £4,299.00

CB125R

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.

From only £4,299.00

Introduction

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.

While the attention-grabbing styling of the CB125R is unchanged, its new DOHC two valve engine delivers 1.2kW more power and 1.2Nm more torque – with improved response throughout the rev-range.
And, in a world’s first for a 125cc motorcycle, 41mm Showa Separate Function Big Piston (SFF-BP)* USD forks - the same unit fitted to the 21YM CBR650R and CB650R, with spring rate and damping changes - are now standard equipment.
