Replacement for UK's 125cc best-seller makes NEC debut

The new Honda CB125F is make its European debut at Motorcycle Live at The NEC, Birmingham.

The CB125F is extensively revised, with CB-F-family naked style plus new chassis and six-spoke 18-inch wheels. Honda says it is “built for real-world usability”, with its new air-cooled engine said to deliver strong low to mid-range torque.

“Build quality is also enhanced,” says Honda, “while purchase and ownership costs remain outstandingly attractive.”

The model’s predecessor – the CBF125 – has been the UK’s best-selling 125 machine for the past four years and was the best-selling motorcycle in the UK in both 2012 and 2013.

The 2015 CB125F is “drawn from a fresh gene pool, and while it maintains the previous model’s core strengths, it builds heavily on quality, ease of use and a desirable new look”.

Honda says the CB125F is perfectly aligned with its ongoing commitment to welcome and introduce fresh entrants to both the brand and to motorcycling. From its ‘My First Licence’ initiative to its involvement in the industry-led Get On campaign and the launch of the Honda School of Motorcycling earlier this year, Honda (UK) aims to provide the right initial experience that can lead to a lifelong association.

In addition, this year’s Honda (UK) stand at Motorcycle Live will see the introduction of the Honda Hub, which aims to strip back the jargon and provide easy-to-digest expert advice on all elements of motorcycling, from learning to ride, to financing a new machine to organising insurance.
