I BOUGHT THIS 2006 XR-125 L6 FROM A HONDA DEALER FOR £1600 AND I NEVER HAD A SINGLE PROBLEM WITH IT. ON THE OTHER HAND MY DADS PIAGGIO NRG HAD 1 PROBLEM EVERY MONTH. IN THE END HE GOT RID OF THE PIAGGIO AND BOUGHT A HONDA NOW HE IS SO HAPPY. I BOUGHT A VERY LARGE 65 LITRE BACK BOX AND FITTED IT TO THE BACK AND I CAN CARRY ABOUT 5 SHOPPING BAGS INSIDE IT. REALLY GOOD BIKE, HANDLES DIRT, WATER, MUDDY, GRASS. POSITIVES: VERY ROBUST ENGINE SUMMER OR WINTER VERY LARGE TIRES VERY VERY VERY… Read Full Review

Ok, I'm a 40yr old new to biking and am a big 18st+ and at 6'4" needed a bike to reflect my size. After some research I looked at the Yamaha WR125R, the big enduro style bike, which I really liked but was put off by the price. So for a second hand reliable learner with some size I went for the XR125L. It's not a true enduro bike, its a four stroke with a permanently restriced engine (11bhp), you'd need to buy some after market parts to increase the power. Now I'm a big fella so the… Read Full Review

i had had this bike on a 07 plate with tax and test it was just 1000 pounds!! it has never let me down to get to work and back all weather only lil problem is its a bit weird to ride in the rain with the nobly tires but apart from that it is a very good bike Honda CG engine that goes on for EVER! my biker mate swears by Honda and i see why! DO NOT BUY THEM STUPID CHINESE PEACES OF DUMP they might cost 2000 pounds new but it will fall apart before 2 years go for Japanese the real bike makers!… Read Full Review

well its designed for onroad and off use, but i would strongly not recommend taking one for heavy off road use as the front tends to really wash-out when pushed and the suspension is VERY "splodgy"! but on the road it is really good is very smooth and handles speed well, i had 65 with a modified pipe!
very good front discs and rear drum does the job... just!
you wont be keeping up with any really high perfomance on road bikes, but you wont be keeping up with much… Read Full Review

ive had my xr 125 for around 2 years now,mainly for commuting to work on a 20 mile round trip.these arent the fastest 125,s ,mine will do 55 all day long and 65 with a bit of wind behind you but apart from that these are fantastic little bikes,ive used mine every day for work and it starts every time ,ive even been to work this week and its been -10 degrees .solid and bullet proof,would reccomend to anyone as a commuter bike does 90 to the gallon too!… Read Full Review

I brought a 03 XR125 L-3 with 9,100 miles on the clock over 19 months ago. In them 19 months I have covered nearly 13,000 miles on the the little beast! It has NEVER let me down!
I have ridden the bike in all weathers and it just keeps going and going. The engine is solid and will never let you down as long as you keep it topped up! MPG of my bike is around 75-85 depending how you're riding.
I went on a month long tour of England in the summer where I covered 1800 miles in a month!

I have had honda xr125 bike for one year. it is a good little bike, very reliable, cheap to run and fun for using it on or off the road. the only bad point seems to be the gear when you stop at red light, sometimes it is difficult to get it into neutral or sometimes into the first gear. i have been told this is because the bike is new… Read Full Review

I have a honda xr 125 and for the first time took it further than out of the town i managed to do 111km on £5.00 no joke. It's probably due to the fact it isn't a fast bike and i was only doing 60mph. I would recommend this for someone who wants a 125 instead of 50cc… Read Full Review

My son has had this bike from new for 3 years and in that time has covered 28k which is a lot of miles on 2 spark plugs and the original oil. It was used it every day regardless of weather conditions and it has never and I really do mean never let him down. He has religiously ignored service schedules failed to replace worn out consumable parts and never cleaned it. It's been stolen twice -so you can assume it has been seriously abused as well - It has, however generally been ridden… Read Full Review
