So if and outright performance isn’t an that’s for sale, then you as well go for style and cool

If that was bag and you still wanted the Honda on the tank, then the obvious was the 2-… NSR125, at least up the end of 2003 it was.

However, growing environmental the implementation of the Euro 1 regulations and not that fact that about everyone knew how to them, meant that its were numbered. Just MotoGP, the 2-… was … and it was for a 4-… replacement. Enter the for 2004.

Using the same cues as its larger CBR600 and brothers, the diminutive 125R all the looks of a sportsbike but at a much rate of acceleration. You could say a sheep in wolf’s clothing and you wouldn’t be far wrong.

However, not all show and no-go, and although the is never going to get you surfing on a of adrenaline, it does have a performance for its size, and anyone on to two wheels for the first time or up from the twist-n-go fraternity, going to be intimidated by either the or the power delivery of the CBR125R. the suspension seems a little on the side when you first get the seat, it does a very job of keeping the tyres in contact the road surface and telling you they’re doing, without your backside into or diving you over the bars you get nifty with the brakes.

However, it did get dark at the end of day and I was able to check that the headlamp setup gives a spread of light on dipped and good penetration on main

The cockpit and dials are old-school with the large speedo and flanked by smaller gauges for and coolant temperature, all with to read markings. There’s a miles odometer, but no trip, and for main beam, neutral and indicators. The knob for the choke is on the top yoke and easy to get at, although it needed at all during the test, on the first start of the day.
