Honda CG 125

 

 

 

Ideally restricted to A to B commuting, with perhaps a very occasional foray as far as C, this 125 is one of the least expensive motor cycles on offer from Honda, and one of the few to have pushrod valve operation. Until 1981 a poor seller, despite its low price and economical (100mpg) ways, the CG was confidently expected to climb the sales charts as the October 1982 deadline for reduced capacity learner machines became more pressing.

The overhead-valve CG125 produced 12bhp, compared with the ohc model's 14bhp. In some versions it had a casing for the rear chain

At first glance, the CG seems to be one of the more popular ohc 125s; the different arrangement of cylinder head and valve gear is not obvious and there is little else to give the game away (which perhaps suggests that Honda intended some blurring of the differences between the two).

Price cutting is evident in the 41/2in-diameter drum brakes, which are not up to the job of dealing with the 60mph, sometimes 70mph, of which the CG is capable — especially when a pillion passenger is carried; that, and the use of direct lighting with attendant dimming of the headlight at low engine revs.

Specification
CG125: Single-cylinder, ohv, 124cc (56.5 x 49.5mm). 11.6bhp/9,000rpm. Five-speed gearbox. Flywheel magneto/ direct lighting. 2.2g petrol, 1.8ptoil. Telescopic/pf. Tyres, 2.50 x 18in (fr), 3.00x 18in (r). 2101b. 65mph.
