On the outside, it gets several old-school design elements that give it a proper retro design appeal. The square headlamp, tail lamp, and indicators get traditional lighting. Also, the use of an elongated fuel tank, as well as round mirrors, gives the bike a proper old-school look. To save costs, the CG125 Special also comes with a fully-analog instrument cluster that appears to have been sourced from a 90's bike, needless to say, all these elements contribute to making it a proper oldie. However, the company hasn't used much chrome on the bike but went ahead giving it a blacked-out theme for the engine, exhaust, and wheels. The bike also missed out on the grabrail/luggage rack for a cleaner look towards the rear end. Other bits the bike misses out on include disc brakes, and alloy wheels.
At the heart of the motorcycle can be found a 125cc, air-cooled engine which dishes out 9.9bhp of maximum power and 9.5Nm of peak torque. The engine is rated to deliver a fuel economy of 55.5 kmpl.
In terms of pricing and placement, the motorcycle has been priced at the equivalent of ₹90,000 in China.
