2018 CB125R

Take motorcycling down to its bare essentials and often less equals more.

Which, for anybody considering his or her first motorcycle is a good thing.

The fundamentals of an easy-to-ride machine, with engaging real-world engine performance and super-agile handling are all you need. Wrap those fundamentals in a distinctive new style, and add a host of premium specifications, and the result is a great place from which to begin a two-wheeled career.

Honda understands this formula well, and for 2018 has created the CB125R. Part of a distinctive new family using Honda’s new ‘Neo Sports Café’ styling – which includes the CB1000R and CB300R, both new for 2018 – it distills all of the excitement of two wheels into a compact, lightweight form.

Fun to ride, a joy to own and representing a bold new direction for Honda’s entry level machines, it has many of the premium features found on its larger capacity siblings. The CB125R injects a freshly new style on to Europe’s city streets with a minimalist, bare-boned attitude.

The CB125R may possess big bike looks but it weighs just 125.8kg (wet), making it an extremely easy machine to manage. Its free-revving liquid-cooled single-cylinder engine delivers strong low-to mid-range acceleration and it offers a unique new presence, aimed to engage and inspire young riders.

A brand new frame mixes pressed and tubular steel; it both looks good, and provides a tuned rigidity balance that gives great feedback. The CB125R also features high specification 41mm USD forks, preload adjustable monoshock, radial-mount 4-piston front caliper, IMU-based ABS and full-size Dunlop radial tyres.

Valuable features more usually found on much larger machines such as the tapered aluminium handlebar, LCD instrument display and full LED lighting, exude quality and add to the pride of ownership.
