Honda XL 125 V Varadero

Honda’s Varadero 125 was one of the best 125s around when it burst on to the market place in 2001.

After eight years of good sales, the Varadero was discontinued but it’s still common on UK roads today.

It’s a small bike but feels bigger than it is, thanks to a tall riding position and solid engine. It’s been caught up by lots of its rivals now but the Varadero 125 remains a decent choice if you’re after a 125 for city cruising.

It's a brilliant bike it rides beautiful. It's solid and reliable starts first time every time even when left standing. I have admirers every day and a lot of people think it's much bigger than 125cc. I'd like to have it's big brother next.
