125cc was the engine limit by my Dad, so there were few commuters in this category include the 2 Hondas, a Yamaha, few Honda’s, a TVS etc

I went to the Yamaha to checkout their latest and I was really impressed by the GLADIATOR RS engine is really revvy its class) at once I decided to go for it. day I went to the Honda outlet and were proudly displaying latest CBF 125 all over their three floors,

22 January My first impression — IS REALLY a 125? Later I met a there who was very eager to give me the brochure, when I the Yamaha and Honda the difference is so that except for the gear every technical aspect is but still I was thinking of Yamaha.


23 January 2009 I along my Dad and Mom went directly to the Yamaha cash, and then suddenly happened there, my father to me Why don’t you test the YAMAHA and one after another? (The are very near to each I took a small ride my option was Yamaha, then we to HONDA and there it was standing in its glory the CBF 125, after the I was a little doubtful of the Honda both the bikes were awesome, well till the Honda had already woven its on my father and Mom, and they to me that You take this one and went to pay the cash, Oh boy what a big but the excitement of CBF 125 faded those away..


Now was the time to the seal. Ahem. I remembered the break in techniques I had read about 2-3 years back can find more info in BHP forum), now I used the same for a not so stretch.

And I must say that it works (Even though it was a big even after 8500kms the plug is in perfect state as it be theoretically. Now begins the real of CBF 125 I was really pissed off due to time for first engine oil change for a few In the mean time when I was around the streets I saw many faces (8 months ago) the CBF 125 and the first question everywhere was kitna hai? I waited the first oil change and didn’t it even beyond 50kmph the first oil change (First which was very early.

After First Oil change I the CBF 125 to check out the pros and cons, the and low end torque is just excellent (I expected this) but the top end torque Open the throttle and the CBF 125 is heavily for breadth in no time (11 BHP only). the CBF 125 feels like a 125 when I am 30-70 acceleration is blistering, I can feel the surge of raw fuel inside the tiny little and this is the only thing I about the engine.

And now going beyond 70. Well be for a vibratory massage for your body, It looks like has fitted in it a exclusive … in the you get the feeling that Yes, now I really crossed the limit. it crosses the 80kph mark it as if every part of it is going to off in all different directions,

The exhaust of CBF 125 is muffled very poorly emission norms I think, the exhaust end might give it a feeling) but overall above for a commuter.

(Note: after few the vibration was reduced a bit by the chief here, I don’t know what he did but a lot better now, is a its peak near 95kph and that you should forget the vibration and concentrate on wind)

Yes! Plenty! It has the peak in the most usable range, and to the well spaced gear you will hit 60 in under 5 sec (Only If you are in changing gears, Overall good acceleration 9 of10 forget this is a 125cc

TOP SPEED. This is a really and I was expecting it to be around 95-100 speed) and well it is, I managed to get (Speedo) when I tucked in and the throttle cable pinned to and honestly it makes you think all the bolts are loosening fast, and I this is what Honda to do DO NOT PUSH THE LIMITS and this reflects in the display console, look at it and you will miss the important thing A TACHEOMETER, engineers think they are clever, duh.


Now we are rolling faster we need to suddenly for some reason anything ), The brakes are a advantage in the CBF 125 the front disc and the large rear drum I don’t use the one except while parking or rear wheel drifts When you start applying the your confidence starts up higher and higher and higher you come to a complete halt, I was never let down by the brakes at till now and I pray to GOD for the future


Do you like cornering at speeds, well I DO and I DO IT all the time, corners at high speeds races my adrenaline beyond its the CBF 125 is a monster at corners you can take turns at speeds you cant imagine (Thanks to its thick fat tubeless tire) and the suspension is good, I mean very even among all 150cc’s and FZ are exception here) the feeling of you get is just exemplary (I have the suspension as per the local road here).


Well everyone in world is unique and has unique I love the way it t looks (Exterior there are many of these around you, your


The after sales is good in my city, many centers all over so that is not a The people in Hyderabad are very and this reflects in their I don’t have any thing to say here and these people are in here.

Usually I drive here not less than will be touching 100 on straights.

(I know how much will the CBF 125 in the long run)

In 8500kms I have driven more 5000kms on the highway or empty on my way to college everyday (Note: My is on a NH and is 20kms away from my
