Are you looking for an entry level machine or abouttown commuter that wont break the bank but still provides outstanding build quality and top-notch reliability? Then look no further, the Honda CB125 is unbelievable value at only $3000 ride away! At that sort of dough it is far cheaper than many second-hand machines. As seen here, available in red, white or blue, simply buy one in each colour for different moods or, if you prefer, get together with a couple of mates and have a crack at your own Italian jobstyle caper. Its too slow, uncomfortable and theres not enough power! I hear you cry. Well not so. I met a fellow the other day who had arrived in Darwin from Perth having ridden the whole way, trouble free, on his brand new Honda CB125. Not my weapon of choice for such an undertaking I must confess, but it shows it can be done if youre up for it. But its about town where the Honda CB125 really comes to the fore. It is easy to ride, with classic good looks and uncom plicated, no-fuss traditional instrumentation. It is light and agile enough to cut through the traffic and show heavy, cumbersome scooters a clean set of heels. Proper-sized wheels mean you get superior road manners and a good choice of tyres. The suspension is simple but highly effective, as is the single-cylinder engine. Needless to say this oldschool carburetted machine is ridiculously frugal to run. The seat is nice and low and also exceedingly comfortable for such a small bike, reducing fatigue and making longer trips a real possibility. The greatest asset of this bike is that it is so easy to live with, it feels and rides like a proper motorcycle, not like a souped-up lawnmower as so many 125s do. The brakes work well too, as does the slick 5-speed gearbox. For the novice rider there are no fairings to worry about should you ever drop the bike and it is certainly robust enough to take the odd knock. Therefore, you wont be so worried about where you park it and it is unlikely to draw the eye of any lightfingered Larry who may be lurking about. Seriously, at this price you cant go wrong. The only real choice is which colour to buy?
