Honda Benly CL135 is a touring sports bike that runs smoothly from medium-low speed in urban areas to easy access to highways. Honda Benly CB135 and Benly CL135 were announced on September 25, 1970 and released on the 27th of the same month. It was based on the CB125K1 engine, the inner diameter was expanded by 2.0mm to 46.0mm, and the displacement was increased to 136cc, making it a normal motorcycle (light motorcycle) that could run on highways. The maximum output is almost the same at 15ps/11,000rpm (14ps/10,000rpm for CL), and since other basic components are also shared, the distinguishing point is the emblem that indicates the displacement on the side cover. By 1973 production was discontinued.
