Top 125 bikes: Nakeds

The 125cc market is a huge part of the motorcycle industry. It's not only made up of teenagers at the beginning of their two-wheel journey, but also commuters looking to beat city traffic.

Head into the centre of London and there'll be countless naked 125s effortlessly slicing through the gridlock. The six bikes below are our favourite naked 125s.

Looking for a 125 of your own? Head over to

Honda CB125F

The much-loved CB125F is about as basic as motorcycles come and is all the better for it. There's no bike as easy to use as the CB, due mostly to its low weight and ultra-light controls, making it the erfect bike for first timers or those not super confident handling a big heavy bike.

KTM 125 Duke

Built in KTM's Indian factory, the little 125 Duke blends style with practicality and plenty of fun for more experienced riders. The KTM feels like a premium machine and the styling is spot on - it 's a worthy addition to the Duke family.

Kymco CK1 125

The CK1 is a stylish air-cooled 125, which has the big names from Japan and Europe beat on price without compromising too much on quality. If you're on a budget, the Kymco is a great option that delivers a good, solid ride.

Lexmoto Venom

Not quite on a par with the always reliable Honda (the Venom's engine is based on an old Honda engine), but the Venom is well-suited to the city, is built well and priced competitively. Added kudos for the inclusion of speakers and an MP3 player!

Sinnis Trackstar

Sinnis did away with modern styling and instead embraced the burgeoning cafe racer and classic scene with the Trackstar, without compromising on ride qualiy. The Sinnis is easy to handle and incredibly cheap.

Yamaha MT-125

The MT is a worthy addition to the Yamaha range, with amazing looks and performance to match from the YZF-R125-derived engine. While stylish, the MT isn't quite as learner friendly as the others on the list, there's minimal steering lock and it's top heavy, making it difficult to control at slow speeds.
