Review Honda XR 125 L

The price is hot

2890 euros ?? thus the new Honda XR 125 L robs the price segment of the Chinese and Korean manufacturers. Japan quality at a China price?

Most know the problem, even if it may have been a few years. The driving license
Saved from the mouth, the cool replica helmet, the rest of the protective clothing

were birthday-Christmas-Easter presents, and the wallet is low. So how do you convince your parents that you need a new motorcycle? Inexpensive, with proven technology and Japanese quality ?? that would be a good basis for argument.
In any case, Honda did not skimp on the equipment of the XR 125 L. The air-cooled four-stroke engine can be brought to life feudally with an electric starter. However, starting off becomes a finger game if you don’t want to stall the engine straight away: the Honda’s starting weakness has to be overcome with high speed and a slipping clutch.
Of course you can use the ange-
given and measured eleven PS none
Expect heroics with which the
Honda doesn’t even use the legal limit of 15 hp. After all, the four-stroke engine keeps it from 7000 to 10000 rpm.
The eleven horsepower practically never embarrasses the brakes. So the rear drum brake is enough
perfect to force the bike to stand still at any time. And the front disc brake grabs so vehemently that it mercilessly reveals the fork’s weaknesses. The acronym XR, which was previously reserved for the uncompromising crossers from Honda
the spring elements by no means do it justice.
Beats due to lack of cushioning
the fork quickly depresses when braking hard, and the shock absorber quickly reaches its limits on the road when fully loaded. The spring elements of the XR are simply overwhelmed in the terrain.
So you get a Japanese branded product for 2890 euros, but because of the chassis weaknesses and
dit does not give rise to any enthusiasm for the powerless engine. And also a more conservative design? It remains to be seen whether the young people will take on the exhausting negotiations with their parents.
