Honda CB125R is the entry level product in the brand’s ‘Sport Naked’ range; draws inspiration from Cb300R and CB1000R
Honda is truly attempting to launch a product offensive in Indian market and a range of possible future models have been displayed at the EICMA 2017 in Milan. One of them is the CB125R that comes as the entry level model in the Japanese two wheeler brand’s ‘Sport Naked’ lineup. The bike gets design inspiration from its bigger siblings like CB300R and CB1000R, both of which have been showcased at the Milan event.
The 125 cc neo sports café racer is expected to come to Indian market in near future, considering the fact that the brand is attempting to introduce a range of premium and exciting products. As demands for unique and powerful sporty bikes have been increasing in the domestic market, we can expect the CB125R and CB300R to come here.
If launched, the Honda CB125R will certainly add zing to the brand’s product portfolio in India and could play a crucial role in the company’s strategy to become number one two-wheeler manufacturer in the country. However, Honda is yet to confirm the launch of the CB125 here. We can also assume the bike to appear at the 2018 New Delhi Auto Expo.
Speaking about its design, the Honda CB125R comes with a round shaped LED headlamp, fully digital instrument cluster, a sculpted and 10-litre capacity fuel tank delivering a muscular vibe. There is a low sitting seat that offers comfortable riding experience and great control over the machine. It also gets a splitted and spacious pillion rider seat along with narrow tail section and LED taillight.
The bike runs on black 17-inch alloy wheels braking duty done by disc brakes both at front and rear. Suspension duty is done by a 41 mm USD front fork and a monoshock absorber at rear. The 125 cc engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox and it kicks out 13.3 PS of peak power at 10,000 rpm and 10 Nm of peak torque at 8,000 rpm.
