Motorcycle insurance bargains: Honda CBF125

Motorcycle insurance costs are an important consideration for any bike buyer. That's why MCN is highlighting some of the best cheap-to-insure motorcycles out there. This time it's the Honda CBF125.              

Insurance group: 4
Engine: Air-cooled 4-stroke 2-valve single, 5 gears
Power: 11.3bhp
Top speed: 65mph
Weight: 128kg          

The CBF125 has flown out of showrooms since its introduction in January and we’re not surprised. It’s a Honda, it’s good looking, it’s cheaper to run than catching a bus, it may be the only transport you need and it costs just a shade over £2000 on the road. Plus it's only group 4 to insure.        

The CBF’s 124.7cc four-speed fuel injected single is squarely aimed at delivering fuel economy rather that thrills. With a top speed of around 65mph, it’s up to motorway use but you might not want to make a habit of it. Honda claim 11bhp, one more than its closest rival, Yamaha’s YBR125.

Handling and brakes are ok for what is basically a town run-around or commuter. That's what the CBF125 is about - providing you with the minimum you need at a minimum price. As a result the finish isn't quite up to usual Honda standards, but reliability shouldn't be an issue.
