2015 Honda CB125F Price Announced, Claims a 600 KM Range

In mid-November 2014 we announced that Honda was planning to deliver a new small-displacement naked bike in the European markets, the 2015 model year CB125F. Last autumn we only knew few CB125F features and tech specs, and the price was unknown, but the Spanish dealers received word from Honda and are now offering the bike for €2,499, which is about $2,700 at today’s conversion rates.

Judging by this price tag, the 2015 Honda CB125F looks like a very interesting choice for beginning riders, especially because it also offers big-bike styling alongside excellent range and urban mobility. One of the cool upgrades is represented by the bigger wheels choice, as Honda went for 18” wheels instead of the classic 17” tire size, and this adds to the comfort when riding on less-than-ideal asphalt.The gear position indicator is standard
Another cool feature usually met in higher-spec machinery is the gear position indicator, a valuable addition especially for the beginning riders. Even though to most seasoned motorcyclists the gear position indicator may seem a bit superfluous, newer riders will find it as a very convenient helping hand in the educational process, allowing them to learn better how to operate a bike and find the best riding manner for various scenarios.

The instrument cluster is all-analog and Honda preferred to keep things simple and functional. Both speed and rev gauges are analog, as well as the odometer and the trip meter. The dash comprises an analog fuel gauge and backlit numbers indicating the gear position. Neutral, high beam, turn indicator and a warning light are all the CB125F can brag about. A tad too simple for some but functional and... helping keep the price down, too.

As we reported already, Honda CB125F is powered by an air-cooled single-cylinder OHC 4-stroke 2-valve engine, which can produce 10.6 HP and a peak torque of 10.2 Nm (7.5 lb-ft), mated to a 5-speed transmission.

One of the coolest tech facts about the CB125F is the range Honda claims from this bike. Apparently in ideal conditions, the small CB can drive for up to 600 km (372 miles) with a full tank of 13 liters (3.4 US gal), which is close to incredible, but if any of this is true, it will be a very strong selling point even for riders who look for an economical commuter other than a scooter. As for the rest, we must add 240mm dual-piston single-disc front brakes and a 130mm rear drum in the braking department, 5-way preload-adjustment for the dual rear shocks and electric starting. And obviously, once more we must mention the modern, aggressive styling which will certainly appeal to a lot of young customers.
