The CBR125R is the pinnacle of Honda's nine-model 125cc lineup in Europe, and is even available to dealers in Canada.

In fact, here's how Honda Canada markets the bike to customers: "It's light. It's nimble. It costs only a few loonies to run. Hey, it's even easy on the environment! Say hello to the Honda CBR125R, the fun and friendly sportbike that makes it super simple to enjoy all the cool things about motorcycling. You can't miss the exotic styling — from the sleek fairing with twin cat's-eye headlights to the race-style cast wheels, it's pure eye candy. And what's underneath the sweet exterior is just as exciting. The CBR125R includes all the features you're looking for in your first bike or your next bike, all combined in an amazingly light and compact package."

The CBR125R retails for $3,399 in Canada and
