Bike Review: 2012 Honda CBF125August 7, 2012 by: Rituraj Mishra
CBF 125’s getting a new model. Honda’s CBF 125 is basically an economical and comfortable bike that features a normal 1 cylinder 125cc and 4 stroke engines. An innovative half-cowl in the front sporting a tinted windscreen, basically protects from the winds at higher speeds but also helps make the bike look good.
A dependable electric start with a pillion seat that major’s in protecting the driver’s bike while the lightweight antiphonal chassis makes the controlling a bit easy while delivering power to the engine. A 5-speed gearbox with Air cooled does the rest of the job.
A single disc 2-pod calliper lies at the front while the rear sports a expanding drum brake. The 128 kg bike is already a favorite amongst the crowds and the new model will definitely have a positive impact or let’s hope so.
