Honda CB125R

This early-entry motorcycle – a tenacious sibling of the CB1000R – really makes a statement with its alloy radiator shroud, hugging sump guard and all-black engine. A new tubular frame and tough-looking 41mm upside-down forks are topped with a state-of-the-art LCD instrument panel; headlight, taillight and indicators are all LED for extra brightness.


  • All lights, including indicators, on the CB125R are LED. Up front the distinctive round headlight with its metal-toned rim – a signature feature – includes a daytime running light that will make you much more visible to other road users.
  • Safer Stops: Front brake is a radial-mounted, 4-piston caliper, wave-style floating disc brake. The rear is a 2-piston caliper, 220mm wave disc. They are both constantly regulated during use by 2-channel ABS. This high-specification system works through an IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) to give a finely-balanced, front-to-rear operation in all riding conditions.
  • Cafe Style: A brushed aluminium look radiator shroud, contrasts the overall blacked-out engine, adding to the hard-edged, attitude and Neo Sports Café look of this new street machine.
  • Short and sharp: Underslung exhaust, cradles the dark shape of single-cylinder engine and exits through a dual chamber muffler down low. Finished in contrasting black and alloy, it adds to the sporty nature of the CB125R.
