Honda CB125E Review

Honda CB125E

Welcome to the Honda CB125E review page. The CB125 name and concept has been around for a very long time and this is the latest revival and update. Based on some simple deduction the CB125 other wise known as the CBF125 and is actually the replacement for the Honda CG125 whose name is just as old. Thus it would appear that the CBF125 is a half faired version of the naked CB125. This model is very popular in developing and European countries and as a learner and commuter motorcycle.

The CB125e’s build quality is very good for the price and better than the lower end of the cheapest Korean or Chinese motorcycles I’ve been looking at lately (2012). It’s low price when new means it competes with scooters and 2nd hand motorcycles. Of course its not exactly the super model of motorcycles but if you want one to practice for your P plates or commuting and parking anywhere then the CB125 is the one to get.

Overall don’t expect super performance just cheap and definitely cheerful transport.
