VIDEO: Small in size, big on charm - Top 10 Best 125cc Motorcycles of 2021

If you're on a budget and your licence doesn't quite stretch to a 'big bike', there remains plenty of choice still in the 125cc market 


Yamaha MT-125

The 125cc motorcycle category is thriving in the United Kingdom with a host of options across a variety of styles from the conventional naked to the more dynamic supersport to even the odd ADV with designs on conquering the great outdoors.

In short, if you’re on a modest budget and you don’t need to make a dash from the traffic lights, there is a fine selection of multi-talented  urban runarounds primed for your attention. 

But with such immense choice comes an immense headache of ensuring you’re getting the motorcycle that is right for you… fear not, Visordown is here to bring you what we think are the best 125cc motorcycles on the market whether you’re seeking something versatile, affordable or maybe even a little head-turning. 

We’ve covered a range of models here from the venerable Yamaha R125 and Honda CB125 to some less obvious considerations, including the sharp little Lexmoto LXR and the ambitious Sinnis Terrain.

Coming into 2021 the 125cc category will see the Honda CB125R, Kawasaki Z125 and KTM 125 Duke updated with either fresh colours, updated kit, minor styling tweaks and more. 

Meanwhile, Lexmoto - who ended the year with the best-selling supersport in the UK last year with the LXR - has teased more tricks up its sleeve as the growing Chinese brand increasingly diversifies from its 'bread and butter' scooters into larger, more ambitious markets.
