CB125M and CB125X Concepts

For 2018 at EICMA Honda is showcasing two new 125cc design studies by the Japanese firm’s R&D centre in Rome: the CB125X and CB125M, both of which take the new-for-2018 CB125R as their platform.

The 125cc segment of the market has enjoyed a renaissance in recent years, with 25% growth in the European market in 2018; the concept models, designed by Project Leader Valerio Aiello and his team, offer two different takes on this 1/8 litre class.

CB125M Concept

The CB125M is a naked street-focused machine in brilliant red, with more than a hint of ‘super-motard’ in its design. The futuristic lines are minimalist with a seat section that runs seamlessly into a short, high tail, and a miniscule LED headlight.

The all-white CB125X, meanwhile, is clearly an adventure-focused ‘X’ model which Honda says: “Bring to mind the world of science fiction”.

The front of the CB125X has a pretty funky set of three lights: one central and one tucked inside each side fairing. Honda says the LED items are fitted this way to give an added sense of safety whilst still looking a touch left-field (our phrase, not theirs).
