Motorcycle insurance bargains: Honda XL125 Varadero

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 Varadero 125.                  

Insurance group: 6
Engine: 125cc 4v v-twin 
Power: 15bhp
Top speed: 72mph
Weight: 149kg                  

Although only a 125, there’s plenty of big bike feel with the Honda XL125 Varadero. As a first bike or commuter the Honda XL125 Varadero represents a clever investment with its low insurance group and parsimonious fuel consumption                                   

The Varadero's proportions are right, the motor feels spunky and as it’s a Honda you know it’s not going to fall apart beneath you. Since it only weights 149kg the Varadero's v-twin 125cc lump has no problem ripping around at town speeds. 

The Honda XL125 Varadero is a neat handling thing, thanks to its wide bars, a terrific steering lock, commanding riding position and poise. The brakes work fine, but it pays not to get too ambitious. The Honda XL125 Varadero's seat and riding position is very comfortable and not a bad place to spend a morning carving across town.
