I am considering replacing the original tyres on my Honda CBF125. Can you recommend a set that will give a combination of good mileage and decent grip?

The Honda’s wheel sizes do limit your tyre choice, but Bridgestone have the BT39SS, which were developed for small-capacity production racing in Japan. They give really good grip with half-decent mileage too as your bike’s power isn’t up to the level of those tuned 125s belting around Twin Ring Motegi and Suzuka.
