Honda’s CB125S ( Single cylinder as opposed to CB125K which was a twin) was released in the US market in 1973 and continued in the US until 1985. Over its long production life the CB125 reached all corners of the globe and appeared in a multitude of colours, liveries and forms. Ultimately the CB was replaced by the CG125 which was overhead valve rather than overhead cam.

Like the CB100 the CB125 was the basis of a variety of other models. The CL125, SL125, XL125 and TL125
