“Amazing handling, good speed and cheap in use.”

Written on: 03/06/2014 by Alenak3 (1 review written)

The Honda Cbr 125cc is one of my favourite 125cc motorcycles. when i became sixteen years old and was going to get my first motorcycle i decided, this is the bike for me. i bought it used for 5000 km but it was like a new one. before i started driving the Cbr i had been driving a various set of bikes. both 2 stroke and 4 stroke bikes. the Honda Cbr125 is a 4 stroke bike, it drives a bit slower than the 2 stroked bike, so if you're only looking for a super fast bike, then this isn't the bike for… Read Full Review

“Cbr125r Peter Stevens LEMON”

Written on: 08/07/2013 by Repsol_Cbr125r (2 reviews written)

Hello, My name is Bruce Lynch, I brought a brand new 2012 cbr125r from peter stevens located in Australia, Melbourne, Victoria, 3000. The motorcycle was on the show room floor, the motorcycle was started up by the dealer and so on. I brought the show room floor motorcycle which was my first mistake!. Why well when i had it delivered to my home address, i went through the Owners manual first before taking it for a nice slow ride, and that is when i noticed that the motorcycle had no oil in it!… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/06/2014

hey, you can't complain about the bike because you bought a bike without oil in, there's nothing wrong with the bike. you shall always completely check over the bike before using it. i understand that what happend really suck for you, but hey, don't blayme the bike and give it a rate 1/5 because YOU and that Australian guy didn't check the oil. it's a really bad job from the dealer but also a bad job by you. but it's also hi's responsibility to get the bike ready for you, i think you should really erase this and post it somewhere else. i really support you in what you are doing but don't take it out on Honda for the mistake you and you'r dealer made. it's not their fault. the bike is actually an amazing bike

“Honda CBR125R”

Written on: 01/05/2013 by ripped--off (1 review written)

Brought a brand new Honda 2012 cbr125r from peter stevens in Melbourne Victoria Australia, and what a lemon they sold me. On the first service they done, when i was riding it home i heard a loud crunching noise, which forced me to pull over and stop, also the gears were hard to change through, and the chain was catching the sprocket unevenly. Got it home corrected all the faults myself and it ran perfectly after that, and I vowed never to let them animals touch my bike again. 11,000 kilometers… Read Full Review

“Great little bike for the city or backroads.”

Written on: 07/04/2013 by LS650 (1 review written)

I owned a 2007 for a year, sold it, missed it, and then bought a new 2011 version of the same model. I would not have gone back to a CBR125R unless I was really happy with it. Pros: Starts easy and is extremely reliable in all weather and temperatures. Very light and flickable through the corners, decent brakes, looks okay. Honda quality. Cons: It's only a 125cc, so it's great up to about 90kph (55mph) and then pretty much runs out of steam. If you open the throttle up, it will eventually… Read Full Review

“cutting out and gear problem?”

Written on: 12/03/2013 by FLATOUT27 (1 review written)

Just recently purchased a cbr 125 in march 2013 brand new,when driving it home from the showroom it was smooth as silk and by far the best 125 i have ever ridden. However, after 2days of having it,i started it up one morning (sweet as a nut)and after travelling about 150yds came to a junction and it cut out on me. It took a few touches of the starter button to get it going again and took a while to get up to 3000 rpm? Even after this the bike seemed rather slugish and it seemed as if the clutch… Read Full Review

Seems like the problem is more with the dealership than the bike! Take it back and tell them to fix it under warranty, and not to call you until they've test rode it some distance and know it to be fixed!

“Absolutely fantastic bike ”

Written on: 06/12/2012 by SpeedyGonzales1 (1 review written)

I have just brought the latest model 125R. This is my first bike and i have to say, i absolutely love it. Its really forgiving with gear mistakes and is a real joy to ride. It's not as fast as i expected but it is onyl a 125cc. cant seem to get it past 65 even though spec says top speed 75. I know ill be keeping this bike for a couple of years before i upgrade and i dont think i could of picked a better bike. if you can afford to buy it and you are looking for a decent 125 this is definitely… Read Full Review

ive owned 2 a 05model & a2012 new model with the bigger wheels tires and new body work. its a big inprovement, steering is better and the road pressence is a lot better as it is a full size bike now. it was a little small and skinny in its first incarnashen. body work is more moden with angler lines which i like. as it is more moden than chinesse bikes. which in my apinion the cbr is worth the money as it is honda with good build qualty.

“CBR125 RSC 2012”

Written on: 08/05/2012 by wadey3103 (1 review written)

I have the brand new Honda CBR 125 RSC in the Repsol and Honda Racing colours. It is absolutely fantastic, the bike runs as smooth as anything and now that the new body is even chunkier than the old CBR's, it looks like a bike should too! acceleration is fantastic for a 125, the handling is fantastic, the tyres are nice and chunky now so when it comes to bad weather and ragging it about on twisty roads, it'll hold on for dear life. The exhaust would be my only complaint, I am not sure if i… Read Full Review

“Great little bike!”

Written on: 26/01/2012

I have had my CBR for about a month and the ride quality is amazing! I changed from a TMEC Enduro 125cc to this and already I have noticed so many great aspects of this bike! For example, the ride comfort is outstanding, never had a problem with being uncomfy on any journey. It is a small but very nippy bike! I have the 2007 model and I can get 60mph in 4th Gear, 75mph in 5th and have never had a long enough road to go flat out on it but who needs it to go that fast? The bike is reliable… Read Full Review

“Cbr 125 rwb 2011”

Written on: 05/10/2011

Ive owned this bike for 4 weeks now and still not filled it up yet so a tank of fuel will last me 5-6 weeks doing 60 miles a week (300-360 miles). On my 6 mile ride to work I use the A47 and when coming off the slip road to join I have always been upto speed (70mph indicated) and will happily stay there. My bike has done over 3500 miles and to me it feels like new and no problems starting hot or cold. The exhaust sounds nice for a 125 especially when reving down off throttle. I do have one… Read Full Review

“Great bike & perfect step up to bigger bike”

Written on: 05/09/2011 by koolgaz522 (1 review written)

I have been riding my CBR125R for just over 6 months now and have thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it. I have had a small issue with it cutting out at very high revs but seems to have been fixed by cleaning the carb and fuel tank (seemed to be bad fuel). This on the other hand, did highlight to me just how simple and easy to work on this bike is. Stripping down, cleaning, putting back together and testing took all of an hour and a half :-) All in all the bike is slightly on the small side but… Read Full Review

“Fun little bike”

Written on: 10/06/2011

2007 CBR125R Pro: - cheap to buy, cheap to insure, cheap to run - ideal for a beginning rider or a commuter - acceleration from zero to about 80 KPH is good - nice-looking machine - light and flickable, great on a curvy country road Cons: -it's still only a 125 so lacking in power once you get up to about 90 KPH. - steady cruising speed is realistically only about 100 KPH, with short bursts to maybe 120. This is about the only 125cc streetbike in Canada, as we do not have the licencing… Read Full Review
