If you’re in the market for a new motorbike, Honda is a great place to start – for years, Honda have produced some of the most desirable machines in the world. Famed for their reliability, comfort and innovation, you can do far worse than a Honda and for new riders, they offer the best bikes available.
If you’re considering buying a Honda, here’s the top 3 Honda bikes to consider.
1. Honda CBF125
First on our list comes a bike that’s suitable for learners, beginners, and experienced riders. The CBF125 boasts fantastic fuel economy and efficiency, high levels of comfort, and an extremely low purchasing cost that can be spread across 36 months. If you live in a built up area and simply need a bike to filter, this is it.
The 16-valve 125cc offer linear power delivery, and although it isn’t going to set the world alight, it will reach a top speed of 70 mph and because it only weighs around 130kg, it feels quicker than it actually is..
..if something a little sportier is what you’re after, the CBR125 is a great choice – this shares much of the same parts as the CBF, but it’s all wrapped up in a sportier body.
2. Honda CBR1000RR SP
The Honda CBR1000RR SP is the ultimate Honda motorbike – this is for riders who seek the fastest of all thrills. This bike will become available in 2014, and it builds on the hugely successful open-class CBR which has been sold more than 200,000 times across Europe.
With Brembo four-piston mono clock calipers, a circuit ready front and rear Ohlins suspension, Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres and an incredible tri-colour paint job, this bike means business.
Grantham Honda bikes is very excited about the CBR1000RR, which has been built alongside track ready racers. They expect this bike to become a little bit of a classic.
3. Honda CB500X
The Honda CB500X is one of my favorite bikes of all time. Why? Because it’s reasonably priced, it’s got tons of power, and it rides like a dream. It’s also fuel efficient, practical, and it looks great. What more can you ask of a potential bike?
This is the perfect machine for anybody moving up from a 125 or 250 with an A2 license, because the twin-cylinder 500cc engine offers lots of power and the light-weight chassis is easy to exploit – this is, in many ways, the ultimate bike for intermediate riders. It is also great for experienced riders, though, especially where the need for a super powerful bike is low.
With a 6 speed manual gearbox and 46.6 bhp, the CB500X offers lots of thrills for the price asked of it.
