The Honda CBR125R is a 125 cc four-stroke engine sport bike made by Honda. The CBR125R first appeared on the market in 2004. It is manufactured in Thailand alongside the CBR150R, the latter for the Far East market.

History[edit]

The CBR125 was introduced in 2004 by Honda to fill in a gap in the 125 cc market left by the discontinued Honda NSR125. It is powered by a liquid-cooled four-stroke, two-valve SOHC, single cylinder 124.7 cc engine with a claimed power rating of 10 kW (13 hp).[1]

2004 to 2006[edit]

The models produced during these years resemble the CBR600F4i and use a carburetor in the fuel system.

The Repsol color scheme was introduced in 2005 and remained for the following year only as the CBR125RS5/6.[2]

Example of the 2004-2006 CBR125R, manufactured in mid-2006.

2007 to 2010[edit]

In 2007, the CBR125R received some major changes including fuel injection.

The 2007 model received new front fairings to resemble the look of the CBR600RR as well as colour changes to the swing arm and front forks which are now black.

Engine changes included PGM-FI: electronic fuel injection, IACV (Idle Air Control Valve), which operates with the FI system, and HECS3 oxygen sensor to comply with EURO-3 regulations.

2011[edit]

In 2011, the CBR125R received the first major overhaul since its inception, bringing its looks in line with the 2011 Honda CBR250R, which in turn borrows from Honda's VFR1200F sports tourer.[2]
