1989 Honda NX125

In Dual-Sport, Japan by AbhiLeave a Comment

The Honda NX125 was the smallest of the NX’s, which were only imported for a few years. The combination of XR-roots with a slightly more street friendly composition made it an excellent all-rounder. Offered in the states in 125, 250, and 650cc versions, the NX650 was by far the most popular in the US.


Despite the knobbies and the general appearance, this bike is very much a dual-sporter and not a serious off-road threat. Marketed in Europe as the Trans-City, this bike was designed more to be a runabout that you could take off pavement when needed.


This specific Honda NX125 seems to be in great shape. Everything works, the plastics look to be in great condition (unexpected on a bike of this age), and it comes with new tires, service manual, 2 keys, and a trunk for extra utility.

One of the niftiest old school Honda features – suggested gear positions on the speedometer.

This bike would struggle to get about 60mph, so realistically you’re looking at a city/fire-road bike. But if that’s what you’re looking for, the NX125 is not a bad option. And as a bonus, even though it’s quite rare, a lot of parts are interchangeable with other 80s Hondas. As long as you’re not looking to replace plastics, you should be all set.
