Honda CBR 125
First introduced to the UK in 2004 as a replacement for the popular Honda NSR125, the Honda CBR125 is a 4-stroke 125cc learner legal motorcycle. It has fast become one of the most popular entry level motorbikes in the UK, even gaining the title of the best selling motorcycle of 2005.
In these short years the CBR125 has undergone numerous cosmetic changes. It started out as modelled on the Honda CBR600F, but in 2007 this was significantly changed to look more like the sleak CBR1000FF Fireblade. The Repsol colour scheme was introduced in 2005, helping make the 125cc motorbike look more like the stylish Supersport motorbike that it is.

The Honda bike also features an electric start for easier use, a 6-speed gearbox and disc brakes at both the front and back wheels.
Buying a Honda CBR 125
Partly due to their popularity and volume in circulation, Honda CBR 125s are relatively cheap 125cc motorbikes, brand new or second hand. Many used motorbike dealers will sell them, or at least point you in the right direction to finding a CBR125 to buy. Being well-built they tend to be relatively long lasting, therefore making them a good buy and ideal for a learner motorcyclist.
