Ok, I'm in the market for a new 125 motorcycle. I've been doing the rounds all day finding out prices and offers that are about. Not that many greats deal atm to be honest.

At a Honda show room today in chesterfield they seemed pretty excited about the new 2009 CBF125 model. They said it'd be around £2600 to me.

Anyway, from another forum I came across this deal - No launch date on there but £1770 on the road for the new 2009 Honda CBF125. Seems pretty damn cheap and the only place I've found so far that are taking deposits for it. So unsure if to be a bit skeptical?

I've not heard of these before and with a 020 number - its at least 200 miles from me. I've not called to ask if they deliver motorcycles but suppose if some1 was in the area they could check out the store to ;-)

Doble is a reputable bike shop. Bought from them a few times so at this price it looks like great value!
#2
I would have to pass my bike test to ride this right....

Is it only 50cc you can ride after just doing CBT?

Looks like a nice bike anyway.
#3
over 17 with cbt you can ride 125. if 16 with cbt onlt moped 50cc but on 17th birthday can ride 125

Sham only 3 colours - black, red and silver. I was thinking it would be great in blue.

I 'grew up' on one of these - fantastic learner bike, excellent fuel economy and a steal at this price - HOT!

As far as I thought - CBF125 is a new model (I know the CBF already comes in larger displacements). I know CG125 has existed a long time - it £2k on that site which it is everywhere else.

demontec - do you know if Doble will deliver nationwide?

i learned on one of these.. fab little fun bike :)

Available from December apparently. The Doble site says this is the list price and I suspect this may be an error. Firm recommended pricing has yet to be published by Honda but estimates range from £2000 - £2700. Doble are a Honda merchant so I doubt that they will publish prices below list prior to launch.

Genuine bargain if priced as advertised. Early reviews suggest it is a worthwhile development of the obselete CG.

Lovely looking bike for the money. Voted Hot!

I wanted a 125 scooter for my exxxxxx
Dobles in coulsdon south croydon were the cheapest.But dont offer nationwide delivery .So
I took a copy of there ad to my local dealer they ended up £30.00 more but closer to home.
#10
This is a good price, so i've got to give it hot.

But for anyone buying this to take their test and then get a bigger bike, you will only want to keep it for a short while, then you will have huge depreciation of about a £1000 when you sell it.
#11
^^The test is changing in March to. I'm wanting a 125 for a year plus I think so I'm not after something 'just until I pass my test'. But from the 2nd hand 125s that are available they ain't really dropping in price that much (well not like a new car would).

Thanks bigwheels on the delivery thing - I've email http://www.lings.com/ for a quote as they are taking deposits on it to, will delivery and say they'll beat any price. I'll soon find out.
#12
The price on these 125s dont drop that much as they are in demand. What do you mean by "The test is changing in March"?

For that price you could find a good used RS.

I worked next door to Dobles for many years. Used to be an excellent family run business with customers coming from all over the country.
This was back in the 80's. Not sure if its still the same.
#17
how fast can this go ?
#18
Seems like a good deal. My first bike was a Honda RS.That was 17 years ago. To be honest I dont think its worth buying new because as soon as those L plates are off ,your already onto your next upgrade.I was sooooo impatient I did the 3 day course which was from CBT to Test in 3days. I owned my 125 for about 3 months. So if I was to do it again , I would have bought a cheap run around & kept the money for the big boy.

After your CBT you can drive up to 125cc.

The launch price on the Honda France site is 2190 Euros. But some UK Honda outlets are quoting £2700!

I'm currently riding a CBR125 and assume this new bike isn't much different - it develops 14.5bhp (I'm limited to 15bhp) which isn't much, if you give it a decent amount of revs the performance is reasonable up to 50mph if you're good with the gears but much above that depends on conditions. At a push it will go to 70mph but you really need to be tucked in, have a tail wind and going downhill!

It can be frustrating on a main road especially if you're used to driving a reasonably powered car however I'm glad I did buy the 125 as it's been good to get to grips with. I really like the CBR as it doesn't just look like a learner bike, I think it looks great. It's a pretty clever little bike as well, won't let me start if I have it in gear and if I try to engage a gear with the stand down it switches off the engine. Just hoping to get my direct access test done this month as I've ordered my first 'proper' bike.

Yeah, it was the CG I had - but I reckon from reading the specs, they're not all that dissimilar.
#24
Honda is the best.
Can save a fair bit going secondhand. I bought an 8 year old CG125 in the summer in showroom condition for a grand less than this. Only 1,000 miles on the clock.
Depends how deep your pockets are.
This looks a good deal but the APR is rather high.

As a learner motorcyclist you are restricted to 125cc and 11KW or 14.6BHP.
As this bike is only 8.5KW its only about 11BHP. So you will lucky to get 60MPH out of it.

I guarrantee you wont want to stay on this hugely underpowered bike for long after you've passed your bike test. And dont believe people who are saying there is hardly any depreciation in 125cc bikes. They depreciate horrendously like any new vehicle does.

I once believed I was the world record holder on my CG125 - 73mph downhill, flat on the tank. :giggle:

And that was in San francisco with a hurricane behind you.
#28
my advice is to buy a old Yamaha DT 125, do your CBT and then your DAS test before the laws change. Then buy a 400cc bike such as a Honda VFR 400 (nc24/30) and enjoy!

Good price

i would buy one but it is not powerful enough to transform into a trike. good starter bike though.

I am sure if you bolted the engine into this trike frame the performance would be more than acceptable:w00t:

Absolutely cracking price and a great bike to boot.

You simply can't go wrong with a Honda, best build quality on the market and at that price new you won't lose a lot when it's time to trade up. I sold mine many years ago when I passed my test and lost about £500 on what I paid for it and 12 months old (good deal on initial purchase). Now on my **th bike, traded up about 5 weeks ago, this time lost nearly £4k, that's the down side, it's an addictive and very expensive hobby :-D

Biking is big business at the moment and their is always a demand for used 125's, do it, you know you want to :)

Another point to note is that if you take your test on this bike you will then be restricted to 33BHP for two years...
But take your test on hire bike of 33BHP on a direct access course and you can then ride anything you want. You could even go out and buy a Kawasaki ZZR1400 with 200BHP..... But you will probably kill yourself.

Can anyone tell me, with a full uk driving licence you don't need a CBT..is that right? I was thinking of doing a 3 day course and then getting a bike which might at least accelerate faster than my car...if not what's the point?

Thats the route i took, but slotted in the middle was a TZR250 Yamaha.
You really can't beat the fun of a 2 stroke, but they are rare now above 125cc

Agree that Honda are great quality and my VFR 400 WAS FANTASTIC.

Got to agree with Biker Jeff, if you plan to move on then you need to take into account the depreciation associated with any new vehicle.
The minute you ride it away it's second hand and you just lost a load off its value

Afraid not, you still need to do CBT which now includes the theory test before you can ride on the road.

However, if you take a DAS course you can do the whole lot in 5 days (in theory) and walk out with a full or A1 licence.

I remember when I passed my test, I could've moved to a ZZR1100 right after my test - mental!

I did, well sort of. Rode to the test centre on an ER5, rode back after passing my test on my mates Blackbird :)

To be fair, it was his school bike and I'd ridden it during the week up to my test. Not often you see an 1100 with L plates on :whistling:
