A bargain basement substitute for the much-heralded CG125 is the Honda CBF125. The very same reliable transport is provided and it even adds a special touch of class. Ever since it was first introduced in January, bikers galore have been snapping up this model. This has made it hardly a surprise that many dealers have been unable to source the model quickly enough to meet the demand.
With a top speed of about 65mph, fuel efficiency is what is delivered by the CBF’s fuel injected, 124.7cc single engine. This allows you to put it to use on a motorway, but on a regular basis this may not be your choice. Honda reports that in relation to the nearest competitor it has which is the Yamaha YBR125, the Honda model offers 11bhp which is in fact 1 more. The fact of the matter is that in overall performance, there is really nothing much separating these two models.
Ride And Handling
The handling is reasonably satisfactory as are the brakes(single disc front and drum rear). It is truly as comfortable as any motorbike for 30 minute or so rides. On those journeys which are longer, due to the twin rear shocks which are inexpensive, your rear end is going to hurt, especially on the motorways. And when you make the switch between accelerating and braking in town start/stop traffic queues, you may experience a rocking horse sensation.
Quality And Dependability
You should understand that everything is not going to be perfect, at such a low price. This should make it come as no surprise that the exhaust finish gives the appearance that longevity may not be in the cards. There have truly been a number of reports from customers in which the matte black finish workmanship has received some criticisms. In addition, with grommets that are fragile, the plastics are weak.
Rather than a rev counter, it is which gear that you are in that is indicated by the numbers round the speedometer dial. There is however, a fuel gauge. And once that the gauge displays half, you are going to have about a third of a tank remaining, assuming that you began with a full tank.
Verdict Of The Honda CBF125 Review
The model is from a reputable brand and is aesthetically pleasing. In addition, as opposed to taking the bus, it is less expensive to operate. And at a price of just over L2000.00, it may in fact be the transport you have been seeking and will enjoy!
