Alone in its niche for a number of years now, the 125 Varadero is still valiant in defending the chances of road trailering in the 125 niche. A beautiful machine, expensive, rewarding, ready for the road but a little heavy for its (excellent) small V-twin of an 8th liter.
Like the new version CBR 125, the engine is now equipped with injection. This is the only modification on this 15 hp mill. A very good mechanic which does not demerit; but in front of 169 kg all wet to tow, the twin starts to struggle a little. You have to drive it like the old one: push it through the towers to use it correctly. Let’s be satisfied: the Varadero, with its injection, passes Euro 3 and should gain in consumption.
To make a small (and heavy) GT à la carte, Honda options allow you to prepare the Varadero for the trip:
– A large 45-liter capacity top-case designed to be installed on the original luggage carrier via a keyed mounting system.
– A set of heated grips equipped with a temperature control system.
– A central stand
– An aluminum handlebar trigger guard for a more adventurous image.
– A large resin shoe that protects the engine from projections from the front wheel.
– A U-shaped lock designed to fit easily under the passenger part of the saddle.
– A preformed cover that protects the machine from rain and prying eyes.
