2009 Honda CBF125

2009 Honda CBF125 Honda CBF125


The CBF125 combines the best features of Honda’s Naked and 125cc motorcycles from the past 60 years to provide the ultimate in small motorcycle style and performance. At its heart is an air-cooled, fuel-injected, five-speed engine that delivers strong power and torque despite its small capacity. Meanwhile the chassis is capable of easy manoeuvring courtesy of its light and responsive handling allied to a powerful single disc brake at the front. Comfortable and practical, the CBF125 is at ease with solo or two-up riding due to its compliant suspension front and rear.

The bodywork design continues the theme of the small bike with a big personality, with attractive half-faired styling, complete with an effective tinted screen. Two-up the CBF125 is as accomplished as larger machines courtesy of its generous rear seat, comfortable pillion peg arrangement and grab-rail. Meanwhile for the rider, there’s a convenient electric starter, while the control panel is simple and easy to read and features a large speedometer, indicator lights and a fuel gauge.

From first-timer to old-timer on two-wheels, the all-new CBF125 provides convenience and freedom for urban travel and is a fitting replacement for the much-loved CG125, which debuted over 30 years ago in 1976.

The CBF125’s DNA combines everything that Honda’s founder, Soichiro Honda, instilled into his first motorcycles – affordable, reliable, safe, good quality and a joy to own and use. The CBF125 - Cheap to keep. Built to last. Fun to run!
