Just bought a 1989 Honda NX 125.. anyone else have one? (Picture)

Recommended Posts

I just bought a 1989 Honda NX 125 with just over 4,000 miles on it. I picked it up for $500, runs great just needs a little cosmetic TLC. Its actually pretty clean for being 24 years old. Other than needed a new headlight cowl (original is slightly cracked), turn signals, brake light lens, kickstand,  and a good wash, this thing is ready to be my commuter around town. If anyone else has one of these, or any information about them, I would love to hear from you. For $500, I figured this bike was worth it for being a somewhat rare bike to find in the US. I just love the way this little guy looks! I know its under powered and not a true off road bike, but I think it will make a great bike to take around town. These engines are suppose to be reliable just like any other Honda air cooled engine. I would like to talk to some other rider that own, have owned, or have information on this bike!

Thanks, 

Drew

They advertised it as a 250, but when I got there it was a 125.. Still bought it though!

I saw the one on eBay,

The fact that it is already is going for more than I paid, with a few days left to bid made me feel better about my purchase. I just wish they had more information on these bikes, such as mods, upgrades, interchangeable parts etc.

I bought a brand new off the floor NX650 back in 89. Loved that bike. wish I still had it.

Good luck with yours. They're sweet machines.

I had an 88' back in 1995. Opened the airbox a little, some jetting tweaks...still slow :)

Amazing how I paid about the same amount so long ago!

I thought it was a bit insane myself. Only worth it to a collector IMO.

That is, if someone would be crazy enough to consider it a collectible..

Everytime I see them for sale they are going for more than 1000. I personally wouldn't of payed that much. It's only a 125 four stroke.. It's pretty much part scooter, part dirt bike, part motorcycle. However im happy with my 500 purchase!

We picked up an 88 a couple of weeks ago for the wife to learn on.  She loves it.

Looks like fun!  I love all bikes... Big, small, fast, slow, whatever.  They're all fun to me!  Good Luck with it.
