Default 2010 Honda CBR125R

The good news is you can keep the 125R’s throttle pinned without worry of getting speeding tickets. However, with a top speed of 75 mph tucked in and with a tailwind (and it takes some time to get there), you’d be wise to avoid multi-lane freeways.
Despite spinning between 9,000 and 10,000 rpm at 60-65 mph, the little Honda’s counterbalanced Single remains remarkably free of vibration. If you’re heading out for a weekend cruise, though, you’ll prefer riding partners on bikes of similar displacement and power, otherwise you’ll struggle to keep up and passing will be a challenge—it has to be well planned.

But this is really a city bike, and the tiny Honda is a real gem around town, where its light weight and nimble handling make it an ideal commuter. Its slender profile and stealthy exhaust note (I sometimes found myself blipping the throttle at a stop to see if it was still running) are conducive to snaking through idle traffic without irritating the caged-in cagers.

You can easily stay ahead of most city traffic coming off a stoplight, but if the Prius beside you does manage to get a holeshot you can at least take comfort in the fact that the CBR burns less fossil fuel than it does.

I enjoyed the article on the '10 Honda CBR125R. Would highly consider adding a additional bike like the CBR. Any plans on US to carry this model in the future?
