The Honda CB125E is a 125cc four-stroke commuter motorcycle, manufactured by the Honda Motor Company. It has electric start and a five-speed gearbox. The engine produces approximately 10 hp (7 kW; 10 PS).[citation needed] The bike is equipped with front disc and rear drum brakes. Electrics are 12 volt with capacitor discharge electronic ignition and the machine is electric start only.

Top speed with a single rider is approximately 100 km/h (62 mph).[citation needed] Although good for city commuting, the bike lacks power and speed to keep up with free-way speeds in Australia.

It went on sale in Australia in 2012 and became one of the most reasonably priced road bikes.
