Honda CB125F overview

If you’re after a decent commuter bike, the CB125F could be the one for you. The 2015 model makes for a cost effective commute and has a little more to it if you want to take it out on the weekends, too!

Honda have really thought about this bike. They have introduced a new steel frame as well as 18in six-spoke wheels. The CB125F also has a 120mm telescopic fork and five-step spring preload adjustable rear shocks. These aren’t the best of the best but they still do the job quite nicely. The single disc brake on the front wheel and the drum brake at the rear feel comfortable when applied and ideal in traffic situations. What’s also great about this bike is that you won’t get much vibration off it.

This bike also benefits from Honda’s latest fuel injection system, which has increased the bike’s low to midrange torque as well as its fuel economy.

A good reliable bike from Honda, you can pick this one up for about £2500 which is a little cheaper than its predecessor. This does make the CB125F a budget bike, so in some ways it is quite basic and you can expect some of the equipment to feel as such. For instance, there’s no ABS and the dash is analogue. But, it’s still a decent bike if you don’t want to spend out a lot of money and want a reliable name.
