The other significant change is the introduction of class-leading 41 mm Show Big Piston upside down forks, a claimed first on any 125 cc motorcycle. The forks now get a gold anodised finish, which lends a premium finish to the look. The rest of the chassis remains the same as the previous generation model, with radially-mounted Nissin four-pot caliper up front, and the IMU-controlled anti-lock braking system. The new Honda CB125R will be available as a 2021 model in European markets, but unlikely to be introduced here in India.
