Vehicle Overview
Honda CBR125R is the youngest member of the CBR family, producing 13.1 BHP at 10,000 rpm and 10.41 Nm at 8000 rpm from its 124.7cc, liquid cooled and fuel injected engine. It weighs 136.9 kg and carries a 13 liter fuel tank. The design of the motorcycle is identical to the CBR150R that is being sold in India. It uses a 276 mm front disc with dual piston calipers and 220 mm rear disc with single piston calipers. The front forks measure 31 mm while the travel is restricted to 120 mm. The motorcycle rivals Yamaha R125, Suzuki GSX-R125, Aprilia RS 125 and KTM RC125.Suzuki GSX-R125 is the youngest R series bike from the manufacturer. It will be sold independently in Europe and those markets where licensing restriction force the manufacturers to either stay under 125cc or go for an even effective 250 or 300cc model. It is powered by a 125cc engine and the values are still not official from Suzuki. GSX-R125 carries a fuel injected and liquid cooled engine, mated to a 6-speed gearbox for effective gearshifts. The weight of the bike is still unavailable while it can be safely assumed that adding ABS and using 125cc engine in place of 150cc from GSX-R150 will place it around 131 kg only. It rivals KTM RC125, Honda CBR125R, Yamaha R125 and Aprilia RS 125. As of now, Suzuki has no plans to launch the GSX-R125 in India.KTM recently launched the BS6-compliant model of the RC 125 in India with an ex-showroom price tag of INR 1.55 lakh. The entry-level sportbike continues to be powered by a 124.7cc single-cylinder fuel-injected liquid-cooled engine which is good for 14.5HP of maximum power and a peak torque of 12Nm. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox. The bike continues to be equipped with a single-channel ABS unit along with an all-digital instrument console. Apart from the BS6 engine and the new Orange-White shade, no other significant changes have been made to the new model. 2020 KTM RC 125 on-road price is Rs 1.80 lakh (approximate).
