This is the first Forum that I have actively followed and contributed to on a regular basis. I'm learning so much about the bike and the aftermarket parts.

I'm the first customer at my local dealer to buy the 125 in Black. It arrives in two weeks.


This is the first Forum that I have actively followed and contributed to on a regular basis. I'm learning so much about the bike and the aftermarket parts.

I'm the first customer at my local dealer to buy the 125 in Black. It arrives in two weeks. They have a White in stock but wont bring it on to the show room floor until they clear some 2012 250's.

I went in to the dealer to pick up some new equipment and talk about the bike. To my amazement there was nothing new they could tell me that I haven't already been told by you guys. Actually, I would go as far to say I knew a considerable amount more about the 125 than sales reps and service crew combined.

Anyone else really liking Hondaninja125.com?

I love this forum. I have never rode a street bike before. However, I have learned so much about the bike and other aspects of riding from YouTube and everyone who contributes to this forum!

So true! I have had the same experiences over the years. This is their job. I really don't understand how they cannot know every available detail on what they are selling. It is really not that much information to absorb. It seems that they are just taking money out of their own pockets by not taking a little time to know their own products.

Having worked in sales at a dealership I understand why they don't care...

Back then I pushed product knowledge to differentiate myself...I was the expert on the specs, changes, everything involving the vehicle and competitors. It turns out the best salesmen don't care much about product knowledge because they sell the person not the product. I tried to fight this but didn't become a great salesman until I realized that they were right...it isn't about what you're selling. The right customer will always appreciate thorough product knowledge but it is very rarely what makes the sale

It's because the forum is relatively young; give it another six months. We'll be hit with the spring crowd and it'll be just as noisy as any other forum out there. :p

Interesting point of view. Thanks for sharing that.

The reason I joined this forum was to learn more about the 125. I don't own one and don't plan on purchasing one, but it's a very nice bike that I wouldn't mind learning more about.

Looking at the size of the 250 forum.. This 125 will be even bigger.
