About Honda CGL125 125cc
The Honda CGL Sport Touring was from the same family product with CG125, GL125-160 & CB125 for developing country markets. There were many parts in common between the four. The main difference was in the top ends. However, the CB & GL had an overhead cam. One fault with many Honda OHC engines of that era was that they had a tendency to wear the camshaft bearings if oil changes were skipped. The Japanese giant made the CGL engine specifically to address this problem (among others). In fact, Honda realized that riders in developing countries performed little or no preventative maintenance. To make the bike more reliable with minimal servicing, the CGL125 uses overhead valves with push rod, a paper air filter and cast wheels.
The Honda CGL Sport Touring is a commuter motorcycle from Sundiro Honda of Japan in China. It was in production from 2004 to 2008. The CGL125 has a fuel-efficient 124 cc four-stroke. In reality, this overhead valve, single-cylinder engine has changed little over the years.
In the UK, the Honda CGL Sport Touring is popular with learners due to licensing laws. They allow a rider to operate a 125 cc motorbike with L plates by completing a Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) course. Most training schools in Europe also use it because it is an easy bike to control and operate.
We imported this model in early 2014 for beginners or inexperienced riders. The gear is rotary (N-1-2-3-4-5-N) that means you can go to Neutral from 5th gear. That’s not usual for experienced riders and most manual bikes but for riders who just need an easy bike this is it.
Can This Bike Ride Off Road?
You may wonder: can Offroad Vietnam cheapest bikes ride off road? The answer is yes, this bike can manage it but light off road, not extreme! Watch a short video here for more details.
– This Honda CGL125 is not really suitable for riding two up on one bike because of the HP, seat and luggage added. Ideally, riding solo is the best option. If you have to ride two up, relax often and don’t ride long everyday, especially after dark or on rainy days.
– We are based in Hanoi, Northern Vietnam only and unfortunately we don’t offer bike hire outside of Hanoi nor one-way rental. Sadly, we have nobody to recommend because we don’t know their bikes or quality of services.
