I recently came across this for sale on Yahoo Auctions - I'd never seen one before:








Honda LS125R - 24ps, 100kg, made in Thailand from 1995 onwards.

I think it looks pretty good...if you get rid of the ridiculous rear mudguard and perhaps also change the pipe. However, it seems some UK owners in particular bemoan the model's rarity and the difficulty in obtaining parts.

Anyone got any experience of these bikes?

Regards,
James

They are very nice bikes. I have a engine from one of those sat on the shelf, waiting for some future project Rolling Eyes

Andy,

Do you know if the engine is based on an earlier model, or perhaps shares any major parts with any other Honda two-strokes? Anything interesting or unusual about the engine?

Thanks & regards,
James

You have got me thinking now. I must try to find some engine pictures and do some studying and comparisons. Rolling Eyes

Thanks Andy. I'm sure we'd all be interested to know your thoughts for a future project - how about a two-stroke Grom...!

Regards,
James

Its on a long list of project. Laughing A 20+ HP Grom would scary. I got the engine when i had my Asian Honda Sonic. It was a great 125 4 stroke. Asian Honda also made the same bike with a 125 2 stroke. I think it was called the Nova Sonic. But i stupidly sold the bike before i got around to try and fit it.
