It’s light and nimble, weighing just 119 kg. It costs only a few loonies to run. And with its catalytic
convertor, it’s even easy on the environment! Say hello to the new CBR125R, the fun and friendly sportbike that makes it super simple to enjoy all the cool things about motorcycling.

You can’t miss the sexy styling — from the sleek fairing with twin cat’s eye headlights to the race-style cast wheels to the rich, gleaming paint, it’s pure eye candy. And what’s underneath that sweet exterior
is just as exciting. The Honda CBR125R includes all the features you’re looking for in your first bike or your next bike, all combined in an amazingly light and compact package.

Hop on and see how easily your feet reach the ground.

Notice how relaxed and natural the seating position feels?

Now pull in the clutch lever. Wow! It takes hardly any effort at all.

The CBR125R is all about making you feel confident and in control. Of course, it wouldn’t be a
Honda sportbike without a clean-running four-stroke engine with fuel-injection, a six-speed transmission, a stable twin-spar chassis with bump-smoothing suspension, and safety features such as
hard-stopping disc brakes front and rear.

All this good stuff, at a price that makes owning your own wheels a breeze.

Bored of the bus? Hop on a CBR125R instead. Want to have a blast riding with your friends to the café or the cottage? The CBR125R can’t wait to get in on the fun.

It’s the new way to enjoy the thrill of motorcycling.

It’s the new Honda CBR125R.

With its excellent fuel economy of about 38 km/L, it doesn’t cost much to run the CBR125R,
so you have plenty left over for music, clothes, concert tickets… whatever

When it comes to motorcycle engines, Honda knows a thing or two about how to pack a whole lot of performance in a small package. After all, some of the most exotic engines the world has ever seen were designed by Honda for its Grand Prix racing motorcycles, including a five-cylinder 125 and the famous six-cylinder 250.

 

 

 

 

Features & Benefits

 

Engine/Drivetrain

– The 125 cc SOHC four-stroke engine delivers excellent low-end and midrange power that makes getting going from a stop super easy.

– Liquid-cooling ensures consistent performance in hot or cold weather, or city or highway riding, while also improving reliability.

– Honda’s advanced PGM-FI fuel-injection system delivers the precise amount of fuel for optimum performance. You get easy starting, accurate throttle response, better overall performance, and even lower emissions and improved fuel economy compared to a bike that uses a carburetor.

– A balancer shaft inside the engine reduces vibration for a comfortable ride.

– The close-ratio six-speed transmission shifts smoothly and helps keep the engine in the meat of its powerband.

– A catalyzer in the exhaust system keeps performance high, and emissions low. In fact, the CBR125R exceeds the stringent Euro3 emissions standards.

– The clutch and throttle have a light operation that makes them easy to use.Chassis/Suspension

– Powerful front and rear disc brakes mean sure, predictable stopping power and light effort at the brake lever and pedal.

– A slim yet sturdy twin-spar steel frame and a box-section swingarm reduce unwanted flex for better control during spirited riding.

– 17-inch U-section six-spoke cast aluminum wheels mounted with high-traction sport tires look great and ensure excellent traction.

– A short wheelbase combined with carefully calibrated suspension components mean sporty handling, reassuring control, and excellent comfort.

– High-tech chassis components contribute to the CBR125R’s easy-to-handle weight.Additional

 

Features

– The racing-style seat blends smoothly into the tank and side panels, providing a secure perch for sporty riding plus superb comfort for when you’re just cruising.

– Flip up the lockable passenger seat and you’ll find a spacious storage area for a spare pair of gloves, a light rain suit, or even your lunch.

– The riding position is sporty without feeling cramped, and the low seat height means most riders can easily put their feet flat on the ground.

– You can’t miss the CBR family resemblance in the CBR125R’s sleek fairing and racy pair of Line Beam headlights. The fairing also cuts cleanly through the wind for excellent aerodynamics and weather protection.

– The fully featured instrument panel includes a speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge and temperature gauge tucked neatly behind the CBR125R’s windscreen.

– The CBR125R comes with Honda’s renowned quality and reliability built right in.

– Almost every component of the CBR125R is recyclable.

– 1 year, unlimited mileage, freely transferable warranty.

 

The CBR125R continues that long tradition of superior performance. Check out some of its cool features:
> The four-stroke design with a single overhead camshaft means excellent low-end and midrange
power that makes getting going from a stop super easy.
> Liquid-cooling ensures consistent performance in hot or cold weather, or city or highway riding, while also improving reliability.
> Honda’s advanced PGM-FI fuel-injection system delivers the precise amount of fuel for optimum performance. You get easy starting, accurate throttle response, better overall performance, and even lower emissions and improved fuel economy compared to a similar bike using a carburetor.
> A balancer shaft inside the engine reduces vibration for a ride that’s all-day comfortable.
> Serious sport bikes have a close-ratio six-speed transmission. That’s why you’ll also find one as part of the CBR125R’s engine.
> A catalyzer in the exhaust system keeps performance high, and emissions low. In fact, the CBR125R exceeds the stringent Euro3 emissions standards for 2008.
> The clutch and throttle have a light operation that makes them easy to use.

Want proof that the Honda CBR125R is a serious sportbike? Just take a look at its high-performance chassis. Spindly tube frame? No way. Drum brakes? You won’t find ’em here. Rough suspension?
Sorry, you’ll have to look elsewhere.

We want CBR125R riders to have confidence in their bike’s ability to stop quickly, steer easily,
corner with precision, and generally stay composed and in control. So we made sure it was built
with many of the same features you’ll find on the bigger CBRs. Take a look at what you get:

Powerful front and rear disc brakes for sure, predictable stopping power and light effort at the brake lever and pedal.
> A slim yet sturdy twin-spar steel frame and a box-section swingarm to reduce unwanted flex for better control during spirited riding.
> U-section six-spoke cast aluminum wheels mounted with high-traction sport tires for a great look and excellent traction.
> A short wheelbase combined with carefully calibrated suspension components for sporty handling, reassuring control, and excellent comfort.
> High-tech chassis components contribute to the CBR125R’s easy-to-handle weight of just 119 kg (262 lb).

Sure, the CBR125R makes a great first bike. But it’s loaded with features that riders of all ages and skill levels can appreciate:
> The racing-style seat blends smoothly into the tank and side panels, providing a secure perch for sporty riding plus superb comfort for when you’re just cruising.
> Flip up the lockable passenger seat and you’ll find a spacious storage area for a spare pair of gloves, a light rain suit, or even your lunch.
> Settle into the seat and reach for the handlebar, and notice how the riding position is sporty without feeling cramped. And see how easily your feet reach the ground?
> You can’t miss the CBR family resemblance in the CBR125R’s sleek fairing and racy pair of Line Beam headlights.

The fairing looks great, sure, but it also cuts cleanly through the wind for excellent aerodynamics and weather protection.
> A true sportbike needs a fully featured instrument panel, so you’ll find a speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge and temperature gauge tucked neatly behind the CBR125R’s windscreen.
> Some inexpensive motorcycles simply can’t match Honda quality. We think a bike aimed at new riders should be built with the same care as every other motorcycle in our line — maybe even more. So the CBR125R comes with Honda’s renowned quality and reliability built right in.
> Almost every component of the CBR125R is recyclable.
