    Red face My new CG Classic... (automotorsport_lover)

    Updated: Bought Honda CG 125 Classic on 31st May 2014

    My new CG Classic automotorsportlover -1430374My new CG Classic automotorsportlover -1430375


    Ride & Impression:
    After riding Yamaha Junoon for 4 years, CG feels quite different.
    Its not smooth or refined as Junoon but surely is brute raw power! Tourqe at low RPMs is good but at 6000-9000 Rpms you can feel the best acceleration!

    I'd describe CG Classic as: Simple, Robust, Reliable & Raw. A work horse.


    Build Quality:
    Build quality of Honda is indeed good, nice paint & chrome finish along with a crisp sounding engine. Another thing that I have noticed in Honda is that it does not need much running/break-in. I have driven her below 50Km/hr for the first 500Kms and after that I felt she had broken-in enough. I started slowly increasing speeds & lately I have also touched 90 km/hr but no signs of her getting annoyed or something. Did't even feel her heating up... this makes me think that either Honda bikes have better engine fitting or these come half broken-in from the factory... Im not sure though.

    I also noticed that the user manual of my Honda did not stress that much on the break-in process as much as my Yamaha's did. I now frequently cruise at 70-80Km/hr and she never minds!


    Flaws:
    There are no major flaws a.k.a. factory defects in a CG. Yes the rims needed allignment (well that goes for all new bikes) but I don't mind since I had to get the rims and mudgaurds compunded anyway, so getting them alligned as well wasn't something that bothered me. The whole job was done expertly and neatly by a local shop and they charged only 350Rs.

    Yes the front tyre is a little defected as it wobbles, the wobble is not that much so for now I am ignoring it but I might go for a claim if company allows claim on tyres.

    As claimed by some of the PW members that new CGs have these problems:
    2nd gear khatak sound - is not present!
    Khee Khee sound - is not present!

    Patakha Sound from exhaust while DECELERATING through engine braking IS present in all new Euro 2 Models. Some have more, some have less.

    Congratulations on your ride.

    Don't tempt yourself into thinking that this ride will be any better on long routers. Because it'll be 2x more uncomfortable than it is now. Your Junoon was MUCH more comfortable and for comfort level, you just can't compare these two bikes.

    Discomfort:
    The primary reason for this discomfort, are the rear shock absorbers. They are stiff for a number of reasons. They are the reason this bike's rear tyre sticks on the road, and keeps the weight down during bends. Thats also the reason why this bike can take sharp turns even when it doesn't look like it. Having softer suspension on this ride will mean dangerous ride.

    Tyres & Rims:
    One owner to another ... PLEASE get its Rims changed ASAP. The current rims are of a very pathetic quality (only the chrome quality is good). Buy Araya or Union Rims with ISH wires (whatever you call those wires inside the rim). Note that front ISH wires won't work on front tyre because they don't come for bigger hub models, so for front you'll have to use AHL Geniune wires. The maximum expense for this task is approx 5k. (Refer to my thread for that matter)

    If tyres are aligned, leave them be. Because Rims are more important. Tyres after some time, will improve road grip.

    Braking:
    You may already know this but DO NOT try to use Rear Break only on CG125, or you'll risk Skidding Off. Keep 75-80% pressure on the front brake, and slight push on the rear. You'll notice this more prominently once you get to know this ride. Also, without Engine Braking, you won't be able to adjust yourself with better breaking. Its not Junoon. So practice downshifting while breaking.


    Number Plates:
    You are in Lahore. There is a crackdown on the kind of number plates you are using. Punjab Police will stop you the instant they spot these plates and They WILL Break them. You are required to get Computerized-like Number plates made from the plates maker. I am surprised how did they make you these because they are perfectly well aware of this issue, and they mostly warn you themselves about WHY you should not choose these plastic/glass plates. I guess he might've thought about double-billing you ... once for these and once you go back to him for other plates :p


    Anyway ... enjoy your ride.
    Riders on the storm ... literally.

    Computerized plates were made before, now a days you have to get it made yourself.... they should be black with white text or white with black text...

    Thats what I've been told by mamun, my junoon had computerized plate issued by govt.

    Congrats on the ride. I think people are over-reacting a bit too much, this bike isn't made of glass as far as i can see. Do as you feel and learn the bike..

    Once again, congratulations

    Front number plate k bagair guzara ho jata hay. Because i have experienced Police doesn't say anything as long as you have PROPER plates installed (even if its one, mostly rear one).

    Baaqi museebat kabhi aap ko notify kar k nahi aati.

    I have spent lots of time in Bannu - Lahore - Muree - Islamabad but never had any number registration mark on my bike / car and never been stopped by wardens/police.

    Wardens don't stop you for that. Punjab Police do ... especially on their Chowkies.

    Baaqi as mentioned before ... museebat bata k nai aati. In past couple of months, i have seen THOUSANDS of cases where these Number Plates were being asked by Punjab Police. Plenty of times i have seen breaking the plates infront of my eyes, and ask the owner of the vehicle to get new ones.

    CG125 is like their favorite bike to harass. And they specifically stop the brand new ones.

    Try some after market brake shoes in rear drum, it did the trick for me in Deluxe. I wasn't satisfied with OEM shoes as well.

    On long tour comfort, i'll agree with abobilly. Junoon offers superior comfort and can cruise at 80km/h for long intervals.
    While CG will be able to take you to 100+, but above 80 vibrations start getting in the way and less weight make the bike feel gripless.
    So it's great for drags and cutting through traffic but i wouldn't get my hopes up for long tour "thing".
