Honda has recently revealed the 2021 Honda CB125R Neo Sports Cafe Racer globally. It will now come with a Euro-5 compliant engine with some minor cosmetic updates.

As per the looks, the Neo Sports Cafe Racer remains almost the same with the circle-shaped all-LED headlamps, sculpted fuel tank, LED instrument cluster and the neo-retro compact design.

Braking duties on the updated CB125R works under a 296mm disc with Nissin radial calipers at the front. Meanwhile, at the rear, it comes with a 220mm disc that makes it a sure-footed motorbike. Apart from this, the Japanese bike manufacturer has also updated the suspension setup of the 2021 CB125R by offering a 41mm Showa Separate Function Big Piston at the front. Meanwhile, the all-new suspension setup would help the CB125R in improving the ride and handling of the bike to a large extent.

While getting the emission updates the power figures rarely increase. However, Honda while updating its 125cc engine as per the Euro-5 emission norm has increased the stroke length that resulted in increased power output in return. The all-new Honda CB125R now produces 14.7BHP of power that is 1.6BHP more when compared to the Euro-4 compliant engine.

Honda will start delivering the 2021 Honda CB125R to the global market soon. However, the launch of the Honda CB125R is unlikely to happen in India.
