EICMA 2010: 2011 Honda CBR125R

by mahavir on November 5, 2010

The 2011 Honda CBR125R has been designed to offer exciting and performance led riding dynamics, giving young riders the opportunity to develop sports riding skills from the very earliest days of their careers, but also, designed to offer more seasoned riders a fun and economical daily commuter machine.

The existing CBR125R is an enormously popular motorcycle, one that has schooled a generation of riders. But while its small size is a tremendous asset in many instances, guaranteeing easy handling, a low weight and the ability to slice through urban traffic, the demand has emerged for a 125cc machine that is in every way a full-sized performance bike.

Honda’s response to this demand is a new small-capacity bike with big ambitions – the 2011 CBR125R.

The brief was simple: to create a 125cc sports bike with the look and feel of a bigger and more expensive machine. The new sports bike had to retain the current CBR125R’s user-friendly handling characteristics and free-revving single-cylinder engine, but package them inside all-new bodywork with the sophisticated styling and full-size proportions demanded by the modern young sports rider.

It was decided too that wider, more impressive wheel and tire sizes should be specified, enhancing handling while also helping create the feel of a much bigger motorcycle. Finally, the latest advances in fuel injection and catalyser technology would make the 2011 CBR125R more efficient than its predecessor.

Main features

  • Powerful, reliable and fuel-efficient 124.7cm3 liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine with PGM-FI fuel injection.
  • Lightweight diamond twin-spar steel frame with sporty geometry for intuitive and exciting handling.
  • Comfortable yet involving riding position and low kerb weight (136.9kg) make for a very manageable and easy to handle 125cc sports bike.
  • Wide 130/70-17M/C rear tire for a thrilling riding experience and Super sports style.
  • Advanced multi-function digital instrument display.
  • Striking full fairing cowl

Below is complete specification of 2011CBR125R. We will shortly have first look to this bike.

wat wud be d price of dis bike…..??????????????


fas November 6, 2010 at 1:17 am

Too wide tyres for such a bike which produces just 13.3 bhp. Also the exhaust is so similar on the 150 and 250R. Looks like the CBR name is going on everything now.


Rajan November 6, 2010 at 6:52 am

In India one require City Bike cum highway bike means Bike can be considered in India with Full Chain cover , If not required At any time came be thrown out. Seat Should be Flat do people expect to fuck from behind while on road means females In India donot drive such bike there so Bike designers should not consider this fact.

I have no comments on Engine vise, But Bike should be Raw bike , with Tachometer , Storage space below seating will be Ideal , With full chain cover, Motorbike should not be designed as Death machine means to have motorbike is to save cost , PArking space, To be more fuel saver. There in New Technology should be much cheaper , I expect this vehcle in India should be sold less than Rs.30,000 MRP. Also Idotic JApanese beggers donot have money to invest in thier business , The motorbikes should be just cash and carry type , Instead they Eat dealers money , Customers money Simple way Indian fools are just behind Honda branding. Honda products should be sold means Just any time without any wait period and cost effective by 80% lesserthan Similar Engine should be launched.
So Expect to sell more Death machine for India from Honda. Indian Roads A bike can do around 80kmh to 100 kmph on highway is more than enough.

If I am in AARI board I will ban vehcles which are not worth for Indian Road use.

Saurabh Patel November 6, 2010 at 2:00 pm

Not exactly awed by it…..esp the 13.1 bhp part…..Am I missing smthing here???


Vikas Bhardwaj November 7, 2010 at 9:24 pm

It’s very good looking beauty in 125 segment, When it is launching in India with price can you conform Deepak.

Your effort is to good Deepak for Ride Lover daily once eand of the day i am visiting Bike Advice.com, I am appreciating your work Deepak.


Sreeram November 8, 2010 at 8:31 am

Hi bike looks cool but it has only 13.3 bhp & 10.41 Nm torque, it could be better with around 14-15 bhp & around 13nm torque which would have been a better performer which is my personal opinion.
If they offer for a price tag around 80-85k, i would surely go for it as it would have a much refined engine & handling would be better than normal bikes in india apart from r15.


praveen November 9, 2010 at 4:31 pm

hi deepak, gr8 looking bike for 125cc segment, but can you tell me that will it be launch in india and about price as well,gr8 work dear,keep it up and give us latest update about new launches,thnx


prikshit November 10, 2010 at 5:28 pm

hey it feel from specs that it is lacks in power….even my discover 135 produces 13.1bhp and 11.88nm of torque!!!!!!


Ram November 10, 2010 at 5:48 pm

Ok, here it is. Can ur discover hit 10k rev counter? Does it have 2 set’s of fuel injectors? Is the discover’s compression ratio 11:1? Or is the Discover’s 13.1 Bhp is at the rear wheel? U’ve got it completely wrong mate, these are the finest 125cc machines that only one can dream of and if you can reiterate, it’s a Honda’s offering to the yammy’s R125.


Max Honda September 29, 2012 at 11:42 am

Bike is ok for some features but it should be in the price of less than 60.000 in india and india requires most fuel efficient bikes so it must be give atleast 75 to 80 kmpl

Discover 125cc also has same features and it is giving 75kmpl and its cost is only 54000 only
