There’s a new king of motorcycles sales in the UK; Honda’s CB125F.

Honda’s CB125F tops the UK SALES charts for July

Last month it was Royal Enfield’s Interceptor 650 which took the top spot, but this month it’s been overtaken by Honda’s CB125F which sold a total of 233 units in July. Honda’s has a good month all round, with its PCX 125 topping the scooter sales charts too – with a total of 458 heading out of dealers doors.


According to latest numbers released by the Motor Cycle Industry Association (MCIA), July was a good month all round, with bike sales up a massive 37.9 per cent compared to the same month last year. And if you take into account the rest of the two wheel market, overall sales increased by a total of 41.9 per cent.

It’s possible that the surge in popularity of Honda’s learner legal machine is a result of the government encouraging commuters to avoid transport – during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. And the MCIA’s been proactive too, with its recently launched #UnlockYourFreedom campaign. It seems to be having a positive effect on the industry though, with he MCIA reporting that it’s noted “record levels of first-time riders taking their CBT training, a course that gives access to commuter-friendly 125cc petrol or 11Kw electric scooters and motorcycles.”
