Maybe not that bad?-
...It sounds like an impractical purchase because of the difficulty of ordering parts in USA...
I will be the first to acknowledge (and I literally was, in this thread) that I can not purchase CBR125-specific parts as cash-and-carry, at any moto shop in this entire country, whether dealer or independent. I have found out over the years that almost all have never even heard of the bike, before.
However, I dispute the assertion that parts would be difficult for me to _order_. I would just be responsible for that myself, with this machine. We already have the one easy web-based example, and I also described reading the scenario where a US owner got help from a friendly Canadian Honda dealership.
Further: Tires, chains, air filters, oil, coolant, brake fluid, brake lines, fuel lines, fuel filters, spark plugs, wheel bearings, light bulbs, and handlebar grips are all reported as easy to keep up on, using aftermarket US-sources; the same as you can do with almost _any_ motorcycle.
For this model's bespoke bits, international shipping will cost money after the price of any part itself. But this is how the whole world worked before Amazon.com's free p&p pricing model, and we still got by. The CBR's 125cc engine is not a 2-stroke design, and isn't spec'd for a rebuild at 3.5 usage-hours; so maybe I won't have to sweat that kind of order very frequently.
It would be swell to hear an actual stateside CBR-125 owner's perspective on this though, rather than have me trying to convey forward what I have merely read on the subject. Perhaps someone will chime in.
...Maybe consider a Kymco K-Pipe.
I dont know why anyone would want a 125cc, its lack of speed and torque make it DANGEROUS on the street (A car could run you down) and you cant take it on the Motorway.
If i did not care about going on the Motorway I would just buy a scooter...
Any motorcycle (or scooter) will have jobs it's good at, and those it isn't. I would not begrudge you your preference.
And if I am successful at acquiring a streetable example of the CBR-125r, whenever that works out, I will not force you to ride it. However, I would offer, if you wanted to test your assumptions. What is your region of the country, Radha21?
My prospective Canada-Florida bike still does not qualify as an above-mentioned streetable unit, yet. No change since my original post. I continue to work toward connecting with the particular cbr250.net forum member I know about, who has been through the CBR125r US-registration experience.
