Well there are now 3 new Honda 125's in production.

- The veteran Honda CG 125

- The sporty Honda CBR 125 R

- The all new Honda CBF 125F


My question to you is, taking into consideration both price and performance, which would you have?

I'd have to go for the Honda CBR 125R although the second one does seem pretty good for fuel and that but... it's f**k ugly.

 

OY! :evil:

I've got one of those!


But you're not far off the mark actually (all i can say is that it genuinely does look better in real life than in photographs).

I wouldn't have another though - it's frustratingly slow. And the brakes are made of cheese.


CBF is almost certainly going to be the most practical one out of those three.


Disclaimer: I am talking about the older style 2002 CG here - apparently the newer style one has a disc brake :shock:

:lol: There are a few people on here in possesion of a CG 125 actually, djtdon found out the hard way :lol:


If im honest i would still prefer the CBR 125R, just generally because its got 2 extra horsepower and it looks a little sportier.


I should have added the Varadero 125 to that list come to think of it :oops:

Don't like the look of that one either :)


But it's all down to you really, sit on em all have a look and just see which one feels best to you, no else's opinions really matter it just helps.

Too young though.


Are you going to get a car when your older?

 

Nope dont see any reason to do so.


I will get a drivers liscense simply because id like to have one if i ever need it, but i dont think i see myself buying a car.


Hardcore bikers dont get cars :wink:

Hardcore bikers die before they hit 40. Whereas if you have a car for the rainy days and the risky stuff you can get the best of both worlds. I'm not a fair weather rider because I will ride in the rain though I don't trust some routes nearby to me.

So I should have been dead 10yr ago, and I ride in all weathers year round. I might even ride in "risky stuff" whatever the f**k that is.
