Hi Benito
I have the Go Pro fitting, not cheap but very secure and stable.

Ram Mount X-Grip. Not exactly inexpensive, but Ram Mount products are top of the line quality. You might find something on eBay too. 

https://www.rammount.com/product-lines/x-grip

You’ll need a Ram Mount mount and arm too to attach everything to your handlebars or go with the Ram Mount plate (w/ball) which attaches to your brake reservoir.

I second the vote on Ram mounts. They are a good choice.

This is how I mounted mine. I don't use it for my phone but my MP3 player. Where it's mounted between the handlebar I put some flat washers to take up the extra length of the screw so it would hold tight and not harm the plastic.
In the last pic I'm showing the arm that I use to extend it so I can lower it out of the way and see the dash gauges. It works good for my purpose.

The Honda S-Wing 125 has a different design of handlebar cover to the Honda Silver Wing. You can't mount a RAM ball centrally DennisB fashion or otherwise as the two threaded screw holes aren't there. The only options are the handlebar controls utilising the brake fluid reservoirs with a RAM Ball cover, or using the blanked off threaded mirror holes. They're unused because unlike the Silver Wing the S-Wing has it mirrors fixed on the bodywork.

The brake fluid reservoir option is OK as long as you don't put a lot of weight on the four fine threaded screws that hold the reservoir lid on, longer screws are supplied in the RAM Mount kit. You also need a RAM Arm to secure it to the reservoir mount. Small is 2 inches long, Medium 4 inches, and Large 6 inches long. The longer the RAM Arm the more weight and strain on those fine threaded screws, and that's before you've added the weight of the phone holder/cradle with a RAM Ball, and of course the phone.    

Looking at the handlebar layout on the S-Wing, the mirror holes have a lot of clearance to screw in some type of RAM Ball, and the coarser threads will take the weight of a RAM Arm, phone and holder.

When I purchased my Silverwing, it was slightly butchered here and there. One of the places was the handle bar covers. The lock tabs were broken and held together with electrical tape. The whole system was also cracked requiring replacement. I didn't get there yet to replace them. Good thing too because I added a cell mount to the handlebar at a point where the cover was cracked. A little cleanup of the cracked area with a clean cut here and there and this is the result. I purchased a cheap cell mount from Walmart in store. Yes, they had it on the shelf in the auto area. Surprisingly it was actually a lot more then I expected in quality and strength. It was actually robust enough to handle my Garmin GPS.
