An Economical Commuter | Honda CB125e

by Tristan Goodfellow | July 29, 2021

Honda’s CB125e represents fun and economical motorcycle riding. With a 124cc, air-cooled, single cylinder engine powering this lightweight chassis, CB125e is an affordable bike to start your motorcycle journey.

Honda spares no expense when it comes to quality, and the CB125e is no different. Having a reputation for being rather bullet proof, CB125e have been known to run with tens of thousands of kms on the clock, without any issues. Year after year, Honda refines this iconic package, making it one of the most popular models of bikes roaming Australian roads today.    

Honda CB125e Colour Options:

  • Pure Red
  • Pearl Cancer White
  • Pearl Procyon Black
  • Glint Wave Blue Metallic

For many of us, the CB125e was the bike we used to pass our motorcycle learner course, or at least it was in my case. Because of this, I’ll always have a soft spot for the CB125e, as it was in fact the first motorcycle I ever rode on the streets. Weighing in at an incredibly light and welcoming 137kgs, anyone can approach the bike feeling instantly comfortable. Pair that with a power output of a tame 10hp, it's the perfect recipe for an entry-level motorcycle. 

Controllable, reliable and most of all forgiving, the CB125e is competitively priced and offers value like none other in the class. 

Honda CB125e Overview:

  • 124cc, Air-Cooled Single Cylinder
  • Light Weight (140kg)
  • Easy Handling
  • Durable
  • Low Maintenance
  • Fuel Efficient

A front disc and rear drum braking system offers learner riders sufficient braking performance, boosting confidence when braking at any speeds. The ergonomics of the bike are incredibly inviting, with an upright position, and a low seat height for most riders to flat foot. Handlebars are well spaced apart and comfortable to ride for large amounts of time. I remember while completing the RE motorcycle test, we did a couple hours of riding, through the back of Bunya and the Samford Conservation Park. Throughout that entire trip, not once did my legs, wrist or back feel strained. For larger riders (over 6 foot), you will feel cramped, so opt for a slightly larger displacement bike to carry the extra load. 

Not to mention the stylish rear rack enables riders to carry small loads on the back - maximum weight of 3kgs. This would be a perfect delivery vehicle for somebody that wants an affordable, reliable and zippy urban commuter.
