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.
- 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
