    Default An Opinion needed from Honda 125 users

    I am looking for a new bike in the 125 category. Now i have used Honda 125 myself first a 1982 point model which i kept for 3 years, then bought a new honda 125 in 2004 which blew right after first 1000 kms. I have also used Suzuki GS 150 which by the way i used for 5 years and what a bike it was apart from minor electric problem which i faced at the start. The other problem and a cause of major concern which i realized after the bikes started showing problems was of nonavailability of spares and mechanics who actually understood the bike.
    Now i am riding a road prince 70cc which was more of a stop gap till i could actually afford a new bike in the category of 125. Now Alhamdulillah i can which comes back to the purpose of me starting this thread and this by the way is my 1st ever thread on this forum though i have been a member of pakwheels for very long time.

    So i need an opinion on the new 125, whether its worth buying. I am no fan of Honda because of their constant deterioration of quality however for some strange odd reason the new 125 in black attracts me. Compared to Suzuki it has better resale and most importantly parts and mechanics are easily available. Whats stopping me is the quality of the bike because of my bad experience with honda i am a bit reluctant.

    A valued opinion and suggestions are welcome from the users of the new 125.

    Thanks in advance and sorry for the lengthy start

    All of them are not tested on test track. However each and everyone of them is tested on full throttle on a testing machine on which the bike stays still and the rear wheel moves a conveyor belt. Computerized readings are taken and the bikes checks out only on satisfactory performance.
    Running is a highly recommended process its better for the life of the engine however AHL engineers don't enforce it specially in Euro 2 case.

    First time in the history of the CG-125, major change in Engine has hapended
    I guess Roker Arm and some other head components have been changed in order to reduce vibration on high speed.

    Engine life of a bike depends on the running style and period, so first 400 km no double sawari and never use full throttle. I own a 2004 Honda CD-70, with standard parts it has mind blowing pick and touches 80kmph on local roads and 90 kmph on smooth city roads, with 80kg weight of mine...

    axi bro, the vibration is reduced (not removed) as they incorporated the rokkers, rokker follwers,and cam follwers same which come in GS-150 and paiggos but offcourse the road grip remains the same dangerous and life threatining.

    I wish they must introduced the self adjusting valves over haed too just like paiggios and GS to make it completly maintaince free as well...

    ROckers and cam guides seems less bulkier....... matlab less weight of moving parts.....means less torque(maybe) and vibration........Acha hai....If the vibration has lessen then A little bit less torque wont hurt.

    there is a small self adjusting valve type wahser between rokker valve .... in head which adjust its direction acording to available space and valve direction, it assures there wont be any tik tik noise even valve are losen after a long time use as the adjuster adjust itself according to available space in between hence less vibration due to no patting and also less noise even engine is not tuned for long..

    it can be seen when the tappet cover is opened..
