Honda CG 125

Ok after considering a lot of 125s looking at the Chinese lexmoto arrow and a Honda CG I have decided that in the long run a second hand cg would be the best.


So has any one ever had one? If so what are they like?

Yes good choice

I have had two of the early models. My friends have owned many of them too. They are an excellent bike and can be fixed quite easily if needed. The tool kit that comes with it you can strip it down to all its individual pieces. An excellent bike for a first timer you will learn a lot. Have fun and take care. :smile:smile

Rock solid

Good sensible choice, nothing to go wrong with them really. The lack of a sidestand is a bit of a pain, but it's no biggie if even a wimp like me can get it onto the centre stand with minimal difficulty. Cheaper than walking, no trouble getting spares if you ever need any. Won't keep up with traffic on a big main road (or a small main road up a hill), but not many other learner legal 125s will either. No real vices (blows around a bit in a crosswind, but I think that's just inevitable with a light bike and a fairly lightweight 6'2 rider in an upright position) , happily did a few relatively long rides (100-150 miles or so) on mine before I moved up. Zero pose value, but still probably better than anything Chinese in that respect.

great,so is the yamaha ybr 125.

  better than a  chinese bike of which the value will drop like a stone.

 I had a cg,and the misses a ybr.lost very little selling them on a year after perchase and neither of em missed a beat.

 Better second/third hand quality than first hand crap.

CG125

I had one and did my test on it. Simple engine, loads of spares for them if you need any on ebay and elsewhere on the interweb. The only thing I'd warn you about is Honda's stupid dipstick/oil filler cap. Leave it loose when checking the oil level or you'll end up doing what I did, seized the engine because I didn't read the instructions properly. Stupidity aside, good, reliable bike, not too exciting but it will get you where you need to go and you'll probably miss it when it's gone, especially when you think you can get over 100 miles off a fiver. Get one, DON'T EVEN THINK ABOUT CHINESE STUFF unless you like throwing good money away. 
Happy biking!
