Overview


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 in 2018 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’s compact 124.7cc SOHC 2-valve liquid-cooled single cylinder engine (derived from the CBR125R) is designed to be responsive in real-world road riding conditions. Peak power of 9.8kW arrives @ 10,000rpm, with peak torque of 10Nm delivered @ 8,000rpm.

Bore and stroke is set at 58 x 47.2mm, with compression ratio of 11:1. PGM-FI fuel injection delivers crisp throttle response across the rev range. The exhaust is underslung and exits through a dual-chamber muffler.

The 6-speed gearbox offers an even spread of gears for strong low to mid-range acceleration; the CB125R will reach 50km/h in 11.4s.

The CB125R’s styling is unique to the machine, and a deliberate reduction, putting the machine’s blacked-out hardware on display. It follows the ‘Neo Sports Café’ design language of the new CB1000R: minimalist and brutally neat, it brings a new harder-edged attitude to Honda’s entry level range. The cutaway tail unit is minimalist in the extreme, and holds the nylon rear mudguard mount; both rider and pillion footpeg hangers are aluminium.

The CB125R’s frame – which also helps underpin its minimalist style – is constructed with tubular and pressed steel; the swingarm is manufactured from steel plate, irregularly shaped in cross-section. Both are designed to achieve high longitudinal rigidity and control torsion from wheel deflection without excess rigidity or weight.

The chassis’ core strength is anchored by the pressed steel swingarm pivot plates and swingarm, allowing the tubular steel lattice frame to deliver agile handling with stability and feedback; rake and trail are set at 24.2°/90.2mm. High specification 41mm USD forks also complement the CB125R’s handling, with compliant damping and supple spring rate.

A thin (23.5mm) lightweight (230g) full function LCD instrument display provides speed, engine rpm, fuel level and gear position, with warning lights arrayed across the top. Full LED lighting – including indicators – adds a further premium feel and contributes to mass centralisation. The headlight uses a dual bar light signature, upper for low beam and lower for high beam and the taillight is the thinnest ever mounted on a Honda motorcycle.
