It all started back in 1964 when Honda manufactured the CT200 Trail 90 which was later changed to the CT90 Trail 90 in 1966. Engine size has changed several times over the years starting from 87 cubic centimeters going all the way up to 124.9 cc.

Today this same model is sold as the CT125AM Honda Trail 125. It's equipped with a single cylinder, 4 stroke, SOHC engine with 2 valves. The engine is fuel injected and the transmission is a 4 speed manual with an automatic centrifugal clutch. The bikes gas tank holds 1.4 gallons of fuel and the curb weight is 259 pounds. The large stock rear rack on the back can haul up to 45 pounds of stuff. Seat height is 31.5 inches and the miles per gallon is over 100 miles.

The Honda Trail 125's smaller size and use of modern technology like transistorized ignition and fuel injection gives it incredible fuel economy. However, its small size makes it difficult to reach freeway speeds, but it was never really designed for that.

If your looking for a motorcycle with very good fuel economy for use in a city or town, you can't really go wrong with a Honda Trail 125. They're also good for hunting, riding on a farm or riding in the wilderness whether its a forest or desert. Good luck finding one though, most dealerships are sold out and there is a waiting list.
