Absolutely wonderful bike, just make sure you get tires that you can lean with. This bike is so beautifuly balanced and you can really lean on it. Safe journeys… Read Full Review

“Bought a Honda NS125R Alcast as step up in my learning...”

Written on: 08/03/2010 by paulenew (35 reviews written)

Bought a Honda NS125R Alcast as step up in my learning process, having basically learnt to ride on a cheap chinese 125. As it turns out, it was a great idea. The Alcast italian import is unrestricted, variously defined as 28-32 BHP, and as such has the performance you'd expect from a 125 right up until the revs go past 8000 - then it just gets crazy. The bike pulls smooth and clean past 90mph (I weigh 18 stone, so it says a lot for the bike that it can move me that fast), and the handling is… Read Full Review

Ok here we go. I owned a Skyjet about 3 months which i bought from a so called "bike specialist" in Rugby Warickshire, it was naff and slow, I thought that biking was suppose to be fun and enjoyable, needless to say i got bored of it. Then i thought i would try another bike so i bought the Honda NSR125 from a local garage and guess what, it was GREAT!!!! i've loved every second on it, other bikers pay u more attention and nod as you ride past them and the bike feels alot more secure on… Read Full Review

“Really enjoy riding this bike to uni everyday.”

Written on: 24/11/2008 by joefoster (1 review written)

Really enjoy riding this bike to uni everyday.
I find it a bit hard to manouver through traffic as it has a large turning circle and is a bit chunky with the mirrors and side panels. I've only been riding for about 3 weeks so hopefully this would improve.
Easy to ride/learn on. I did my cbt on an automatic 50cc scooter about a month ago and I got the hang of riding this geared bike very quickly.
Its got a nice seat aswell, I've sat on my mate's Aprilia RS and the seat is too hard and wide. Nsr… Read Full Review

Overall great learner bike, it ' s light, quick, and handles lovely.
looks a lot bigger then most 125's. I pulled up next to my mates Honda 250cc and the bike wasn ' t a lot smaller. The only trouble ive had is I sometimes find it hard to find nentral, and occasionally 1st if I stop at a junction.

Written on: 01/09/2008 by Gary SuperSprint (1 review written)

I have an imported Honda NSR125R super sprint (38bhp). The performance is awsome for a 125. 0-60 between 5-6 seconds. The bike looks a lot bigger than a 125 as well, apart from the exhaust. Very agile and with practice you can get your knee right down. This bike is a fantastic 1st bike. unrestricted you get all the thrills of the Aprilla RS125 with out the head ache when the thing breaks down again. Mine is 2001 model. Paid £1500 for it in mint condition and only 6300 miles on the clock… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/11/2007 by MacKaliba (1 review written)


I have owned the Honda NSR RR 125 bike now for 7 months, I am still a learner and have recently come to the conclusion that my bike must be restricted (I am not however sure whether it is fully restricted because I suspect that It is capable of another 10mph. I know that it has a tendency to loose revs late through 3rd gear and it takes a long time to reach 11k at 6th, but I believe this is a problem specific to my bike and whatever has been done to it).

I brought this bike through a garage… Read Full Review

John Thompson's Response to MacKaliba's Review

Written on: 23/11/2007

Lets add a little reality to this shall we?
<br/>
<br/>1/ You are, by your own admission riding illegally. You are not licenced for an unrestricted 125 (As you are still a Learner)
<br/>
<br/>2/ Same goes for insurance, as your insurer think the machine is Learner legal.
<br/>
<br/>3/ 90mph? Thats not legal in the UK.
<br/>
<br/>
<br/>Most of your report discusses handling and high speed, neither of which you are qualified to report on, as you haven't actually passed a test yet, and as far as reliability goes, the NSR is not exactly known for it either.
<br/>A learner legal NSR is around 12bhp, and capable of 70mph. The handling is good, reliability tenuous, and spares prices outrageous, like most Hondas. These machines are of limited use, as a full licence holder would prefer the performance and reliability of a full sized machine, which will also be a lot less stress to ride than buzzing around on a chainsaw-like two stroke, and Learners can't legally use the unrestricted version such as your own one.
<br/>
<br/>May I suggest you keep your reports pertinent, legal, and don't publish stuff which is likely to make readers think you're just another illegal boy racer on a tuned up moped?
<br/>
<br/>In case you wondered, I am a Motorcycle dealer, Full license holder, RoSPA and I AM qualified and been riding for 25 years from mopeds to Hayabusa's, on and off the track.
<br/>
<br/>Best pass your test before riding it any more eh? You'll have no license at all at this rate.

Written on: 24/10/2008

That was an excellent review. He introduced himself as a learner rider, obviously making his audience aware that whatever statement he makes is not the gospel.
<br/>I get the feeling Macs not daft and knows the score. I'm going picking an NSR 125 R stolen recovered tomorrow for &pound;500. I estimate it's going to cost &pound;300 to get it road worthy. I've never really rode large bikes (as I to am a learner) although I did get a go on my mates' zzr600, it had sports exhaust the works. I got blown away, it was like a violent roller coaster ride where you can't see coz the wind is that powerful. So anyway, I'm going picking this NSR125 RR up tomorrow, so I'm going round looking for videos of them 'getting ragged', and finding this review has just cranked up my excitement even more so.
<br/>When you said about BMW touring bikers!

Written on: 26/11/2007

Firstly Thankyou for pointing out the obvious with your 3 main points, But as far as I'm aware anything you have included in your analysis on my review, I have already included in there.
<br/>- I brought this after searching for 5 months for a RELIABLE but relatively FAST 125, as I was told when I brought it it was restricted and I brought it intending to have a fully legal bike.
<br/>Obviously I have since learnt it is not and I am not going to go to the trouble of restricting it seeing as I am now booking my test (and no I am not using this bike for the test as It's Speedometer is in Kp/h and its obviously deristricted. I will instead be renting a bike from the same place I took my CBT and further rider training).
<br/>- I am by my book qualified to talk about handling and the speeds I have rode at, because I have rode at these mentioned speeds, and I have had some scary situations that I think might test rider's of any age or experience, in which cases, I have learnt everything about the handling of this bike.
<br/>- I have reported in my review on the reliability of my bike (which I brought used) It has had NO RELIABILITY ISSUES and as far as I'm aware has had none in its past - I know quite a few people who own or have owned NSR's and they agree they are surprised that for a 2 stoke they run rather nicely.
<br/>- I have lived with this bike for 7 months so you have no right to tell me that I don't know what I'm talking about, You may have had to deal with these bikes before and you may be a dealer, but whatever problems you have seen with this bike, you may not know the full details of. I know for a fact that when it comes to problems with bikes, a lot obviously come from rider error or rough handling, and rider's are not always honest with garages.
<br/>- I haven't aimed this review at learners, and obviously most people would prefer a bigger bike, but I'm reviewing the NSR
<br/>not the entire market. As I said in the review, I've grown to love this bike and will probably keep it even after buying a bigger bike.
<br/>- I have since passing my CBT had what I consider quite a lot of experience for a first year riding, and I have taking further rider training and I can be quite a safe rider, and I can control this bike completely at both high and low speeds, and as they say "Any fool can ride fast, It takes a real rider to control a bike at slow speeds" Well I can control it, and my training records prove that.
<br/>- While I realise that the reason you have commented on my review with such negativity is probably due to the fact that you have seen to many riders killed or injured at speed... I do try to ride responsibly, I am a very aware rider and like to give other road users their space. When I ride at high speed, well that's just my own choice and MY RESPONSIBILITY, not your's, and I take along all tha possible risks and consequences and I am the only person I am putting at risk so I shall probably carry on until I learn to calm down.
<br/>- I am not a boy racer, which may sound odd to you after reading portions of my review, but if I see some pretty boy in his 'Argo' tuned fiesta at the lights, then I WILL wipe the smile off his face. I'm sure that if you rode up to the side of me and I was revving wildly at the lights then you'd quite happily leave me in your trial just to put me right.
<br/>
<br/>May I suggest you keep your comments constructive, helpful, and don't make comments which are likely to make readers think you're just another kill-joy bore on the usual old BMW tourer or whatever.

I have had my Honda for just over 2 months - not long I know - but the bike has been brilliant for a seven year old bike. You never get one with the lasting solidarity as the NSR125 has. Not a bike that demands constant care when fully tuned will do 115mph 0-60 5-6 seconds what other 125's offer that without blowing up next week?… Read Full Review
