Sales figures are testament enough to Honda's expertise in the creation of successful entry bikes - machines that are easy to own and manage, and instil confidence and pleasure for years on end. Honda's incredibly versatile Naked machines are a huge success among commuters who revel in their sharp looks, sporty performance and deft manoeuvrability in town traffic. The CBF125 is an outstanding combination of the best of all these features.
Developed for learners, commuters and anyone else who is interested in using two-wheels to get around the city, it benefits from the same attention to detail that has been lavished on the larger Honda Naked machines. And where some 125cc motorcycles are developed merely as stepping stones to bigger and better things, or functional but rather ordinary workhorses, the CBF125 was created to be cherished.
Its fuel-injected engine was designed to deliver more power and torque for a pleasurable ride feel that's both satisfying and confidence-building. Its fuel efficiency is unrivalled and, in combination with minimal maintenance, makes running costs incredibly cheap. It operates with the least possible impact on the environment, and easily within EURO-3 emission level stipulations. The chassis is light, responsive and a joy to play with in town traffic. A large and powerful front disc brake provides assured and, again, confidence-building stopping power that adds to its overall feeling of safety and stability. Its styling also sets it well apart from its peers. Sporty, sleek, modern and distinctly European it has a style and character that are unmatched in this class. Comfortable and practical, even two-up, it features a superb build quality and a host of styling and convenience features that will make ownership a long-lasting source of pleasure and pride.
