That front fender is huuuge. I bet it must not be fun to ride at night, because the headlight looks like it would barely do anything with the fender right in the way.

Aside from that, it looks...

Thanks!

I bought it in 2008 with only 1500km on it too. 49,000 is nothing on one of these 125s. You see them are everywhere in Europe and Asia. I've even seen them go well and above 100,000 !

I actually like the 250R better, to be completely honest. It's the exact same styling as the 2011 125R as well. So you might as well just stick with that.

I considered buying the CBR 250 and doing the exact same thing it did with my 125. Look up the Varadero XL125 on the British Honda website.
