The Honda CBR125R is a 125 cc (7.6 cu in) four-stroke sport bike, part of the CBR series 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.

It has the smallest-displacement engine of any CBR motorcycles.


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

2004 to 2006[edit]

The models produced during these years resemble the CBR600F4i and used a carburettor in the fuel system.

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

2007 to 2010[edit]

In 2007, the CBR125R received some major changes including a fuel injected engine.

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

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


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