Are you looking for a c? You’re in luck because nowadays you can already enjoy a completely new Cafe Racer 125 cc , with a lot of buzz right out of the dealership. This allows you to have a new motorcycle, valid for driving with the main licenses and above all, with a fairly defined retro and vintage style.
There are classic 125 bases that are very good to customize. But as in all displacements, most old-timers have to go through a restoration or overhaul process, plus all the modification. With what the cost, unless you do all the work, the homologation, and most of the pieces are handmade; It will be higher than buying a brand new 125cc Cafe Racer for yourself.
If you prefer the option of getting a motorcycle with the style you like and leaving a dealer with its respective warranty and others. Look at these monsters:
Brixton BX125 R Cafe Racer
I have to admit that this is my favorite, when you see it in person it looks even «more motorcycle», as if it were a 250cc. It has tires and a roll that make it look like a solid and quality motorcycle. Everything is very well cared for and for the price it has, it presents a very competitive option. If you want to know more about the Brixton, click here and see the article analyzing this model in more detail. But now keep seeing the rest of the models;)
Mash Cafe Racer Euro4 125cc
A very stylish bicha that has an engine that lends a smooth handling and moderate consumption. With Delphi electronic injection, disc brakes with 3-piston calipers and Euro 4 emission regulations.
Later, its complete design offers details such as inverted fork, megaphone type exhausts, teardrop type tank, tail and spoke wheels.
Mash Black Seven Euro 4
11.6 CV that make it ideal for riding in style in the city. Its vintage tank with a monza cap, straight two-seater seat, fork bellows and rear shock absorbers with gas tank; they are a success. He only needs a few semis and Go go go!
Sumco Ace 125
With a design similar to the small and precious Honda Dream 50. The Ace 125 is very passionate with its narrow and elongated tank, tail with single seat, straight handlebar and the combination of gray and red paint on the entire chassis.
Hudson-Boss Goodwood 1/8 Liter Standard
Very British design and a very well defined and worked line. The Liter Standard has a classic style that is made up of spoke rims, fork gaiters, semi-handlebars and bullet-type exhaust, among many other details. It reminds me a lot of a Royal;)
Hudson-Boss Goodwood 1/8 Liter 24 Heures
Vitamin version of the Liter Standard. It has a very striking image, with that slight “sporty” look in the purest 70s style. It has an inverted fork, a classic tank with a hollow for the knees, semi-handlebars, a slim tail and yellow rear shocks with gold gas bottles.
It’s the 125 Royal Enfield Continental GT Gaaas!
Hanway Raw 125 Cafe Racer
Like all the previous ones, this donkey features the “typical” coffee design, spiced up with an inverted fork, 300mm front brake disc, electric starter and a two-seater seat with a hump.
Its price is very competitive as I have seen.
Hanway Raw 125 SR Chrome
I have had the opportunity to see it in person and it reminds me a lot of a Honda CG125. What caught my attention the most is the fully chrome-plated fuel tank with knee holes. I also liked how the seat is flat and straight, plus the rims with black rims.
MH Motorhispania Bogga Cafe Racer 125
The MH Motorcycles coffee maker is another option that you have told me. It has an inverted fork, a CBS brake system that distributes the braking between the front and the rear improving safety, LED lights, EFI electronic injection, Euro4 emissions regulations and a quite successful style.
MUTT Motorcycles FSR 125
This bike, better say this brand. It is one of the few, if not the only ones, that makes you ride a real “custom motorcycle.” When you see one, first it looks bigger, fatter and grosser. It gives me the feeling of wearing a 250. And secondly, you don’t imagine that it is a series motorcycle, you think that it is totally customized and built by a manufacturer. And indeed, it is more or less like that. You can learn more about the brand in the presentation of Mutt Motorcycles Spain.
What to say about this model, it is a more “Brat” version, it has all the modern technology on the market, but the difference comes in the details and quality. This bike features hand-assembled in England, CNC machined and all the authentic vibes of a garage custom.
Leonart Vessel 125
Coffee and urban classic aesthetic. From the renowned brand Leonart (As I liked the standard Bobber they had …). This bike is also quite a hoot. Its twin-cylinder engine and the exhaust system on both sides seem like a good differentiation to me. All this also makes it look like a 250 motorcycle instead of a 125. It also has liquid cooling.
Malaguti Monte Pro 125
This one already has a more “modern” touch. But it seems like a good option for someone looking for a recognized brand and a more current base to make a neo Cafe Racer to their liking. Personally, putting some semi-handlebars, changing the license plate holder, mirrors and an exhaust. It can be quite hesitant. The red chassis gives me some very handsome Italian airs.
By the way, it shares a base with the UM Scrambler Sport.
Another «neo» that I consider that with a few simple changes you can get a 125 customized according to your tastes from your garage. I have seen it in person and the finishes and finishes are very good at first glance. Without being a brand “of the usual”, it shows a consolidated manufacture, the fork, the engine, the paint, etc. They don’t have that “poorer” look that other Asian bikes honestly do. In design it reminds me of a modern CB or a Husqvarna. Is it the Svartpilen 125?
UM Scrambler X Café
Here the name has gone a bit of concept (I think they do not know very well the differences between a Cafe Racer and a Scrambler …).
Without major importance regarding the denomination, another one for the list. I see it quite well, I would like to see it in person since I was completely unaware of this American brand. It sticks to the classic in the design of coffee makers, we will have to see qualities.
