Honda NSR 125
The Honda NSR125 was always my least favorite 125cc sports bike for a number of reasons. I thought it looked rubbish compared to the offerings from Aprilia and Cagiva, and I also believed it to be slow.
Well, now I have ridden one, I can say that it is a very good bike. The slow part was sort of true, as the bike struggles to pass 90mph, however the engine has a fair amount of torque for a little 125cc and is smooth and feels quite strong. It looks ok in some colour schemes also ;). The handling from the suspension is good, only let down slightly by the skinny tyres, and then only when you're really pushing it.
