Flat spots in top gear that cant be solved. 6. Rust appearing everywhere despite keeping dry at… Read Full Review

“Do not buy this garbage”

Written on: 29/10/2013 by zootallures1 (1 review written)

I was originally a fan. Simple, seemingly reliable and even forgave the surface rust on exposed metal, especially screwheads. However, this machine suffered a complete electrical failure that I have never experienced in almost 30 years of riding. A bike whose starter keeps trying to work, despite the engine running, then not running, then with the ignition off? Until it gave up. with only 1100km on the clock. I have yet to determine the cost, the original CAUSE of relay failure now… Read Full Review

Did you not have warranty?

I was unlucky. This happened less than 2 months after the 12 month warranty expired. If Lexmoto want to be taken seriously they should extend the warranty to 24 months and work to get the cush drive and electric problems sorted. I was expecting the bike to need a lot of TLC to keep surface rust at bay, but not problems that the Japanese sorted out in the 1970's/80's.

“Lexmoto 125 street”

Written on: 20/07/2013 by granbys (1 review written)

I'm not going to start by saying the Lexmoto is a rubbish bike. Typically being Chinese it has the same issues of old. The fit and finish is just not good enough. The paint finish and the chrome is poor and before someone say's the secret is keep it clean? should understand one thing. We have several customers CG 125's still running with 30+k on their clocks and still look good and their owners rarely ever put a cloth to them. A mate has a Lexmoto and garages it and keeps it clean, yet it still… Read Full Review

I have just sold my Lexmoto Street 125. I purchased it new 9mths ago for £1200 on the road. I struggled for three months to sell it and got £650 for it. "Value for money I hear you say?" as the saying goes "Nothings cheap if its rubbish". Buy a used Japanese bike.

“Latest word on the Street”

Written on: 12/03/2013 by alanwallace (1 review written)

I've had a full car and full motorcycle licence since 1976. My previous bike prior to the Street was a Suzuki GP 125cc single cylinder 2 stroke and prior to that, a Honda G5 250cc twin cylinder 4 stroke.I knew what I wanted from the moment I started viewing Lexmoto products.I purchased the Street brand new in September 2012 from Lexmoto dealer Jaccol Motorcycles of Rock Road, Torquay, Devon. At the moment the Street is used for social, domestic and pleasure purposes and not commuting. I've… Read Full Review

“All good,so far.”

Written on: 15/02/2013 by wigsy7 (1 review written)

Owned bike for approximately 3 months now and all ok so far. Had its first service last month. Obviously time will tell how it holds out,heard some good and some bad reports.It has a 3 year warranty with it but basically only covers major electrical and mechanical faults.It is a cheap bike to buy and wont get quality of more established makes i agree but there really is little that can go wrong with these bikes and parts are cheap and easy to change. Must admit,probably age related (45) but… Read Full Review

“Worst bike I have ever had the misfortune of owning”

Written on: 16/01/2013 by yg76 (1 review written)

Had this bike for just over a year now and I have never had so many things go wrong with one bike. As of 16th Jan 2013 the bike has had the following parts replaced: 4 solenoids, 2 petrol tanks(original one leaked), 2 sets of clocks(advised to replace by Lexmoto but replacement was just as bad), 1 speedo cable (original snapped) and 2 new fuel filters as well as the usual oil changes and chain replacements. If your looking for a cheap reliable motorbike then look elsewhere. Oh yes its cheap… Read Full Review

Oh and I forgot to say that coming home this evening the rear end of the bike felt weird like I was riding on ice, so I pulled over and put on centre stand only to find the rear wheel was actually moving from side to side as if the bearings were totally destroyed. Had no choice but to continue the ride home at 20mph. Not looked at whats wrong yet, just parked it up outside in hope that someone steals the wretched thing.

“Alright, but bad build quality!”

Written on: 14/10/2012

I've had this bike now for 2 months and it's spent more time in the garage where I bought it from than in my own garage. It's had 3 petrol tanks, two of which were the ones that leaked and then just the other day it broke down at the side of some dual carriage way where it just wouldn't start at all no matter how many times we tried and the carb was fine the fuel flow was fine we don't know what was wrong with it. Everything that's gone wrong with it seems to be related to fuel. Don't get me… Read Full Review

Scotriders's Comment

Written on: 22/10/2012

Have to agree, I bought two for my business earlier this year and both have an identical problem, if you rev the bike over 4000rpm when releasing the clutch it bites violently causing the bikes to lurch forward.
There is no other real faults I've noticed and if it was on just one of the bikes it wouldn't be so bad but both bikes with the same problem is too big a problem to ignore.
Unfortunately the dealer Bikingdirect have been no help what so ever and it looks like I'll have to pay out for another dealer to repair these.
I definitely would not recommend these to anyone.

I had a Street 125 previously which gave me no problems at all.
I purchased a new one a few months ago and though I've not had any of the problems you mention, my clutch bites violently if the revs are over 4000rpm.
The dealer Bikingdirect claim there is nothing wrong with it and have washed their hands of the bike.
My bike is only a few months old but it looks like I may have to order a new clutch assembly or pay for another dealer to repair it.

“Lexmoto Street125”

Written on: 02/06/2012

Hi All Collected my Lexmoto Street125, first impression is a nice sized 125 as I am not the smallest of build ;) First day of ridding it was raining, but the bike held the road well with plenty of grip. Even when I went over a large diesel spill on a roundabout. Brakes seam to be good, back brake is a little light but when applying both brakes. The back dose not lockup which I found to be rather refreshing and nice :) still running the engine in so still only running at 50 mph, but it pulls… Read Full Review

“Lexmoto Street 125”

Written on: 12/03/2012 by GJS (5 reviews written)

I paid £1200 OTR for my black Lexmoto Street. As the Japanese bikes I looked at were two and a half to three times the price and having read up on Chinese bikes I decided it was worth the risk. It's generally quite large for a 125 with a 17 litre (3.74 gallons) petrol tank, so does well over 400 miles between fill ups. The build quality and finish, whilst not quite up to Japanese standards seems failry good. There's very little chrome etc making the bike more practical for day to day use… Read Full Review

There has been a general improvement in the quality and build consistency of Chinese bikes over the last few years but some models are clearly better than others.
Research on the internet before purchasing. Also, buy a known brand with proper importer, dealer, spares back up like Lexmoto. Finally, some Chinese bikes are getting too expensive - near the £2000 mark - I'd steer clear as it defeats the object, seeing you can get a Honda CBF 125, for example, for £2500.
The Lexmoto Street and Vixen models at about £950 - £1300 are the best bet in my opinion as they're known quantities and appear to have good reputations for reliability etc.
My 'Street's' done over 1000km in three months and I'm satisfied so far.

“Lexmoto Street Great bike”

Written on: 14/11/2011 by cozamidlands (3 reviews written)

I have had this bike for 2 months and have done 1200 miles so far, A lot on a little bike in a short time but it has sailed through service 1 at 300k/180 miles and service 2 at 1000k. Starts first time every time, Fuel efficient (£17 full tank does 350 miles), REALLY cheap to buy brand new! it cost 1300 for my street and is a copy of a Yamaha YBR that is apx £2500 brand new. EASY to learn to ride, instrument panel shows which indicator light is on, which gear you are in, the clutch is… Read Full Review

“Lexmoto Street Review”

Written on: 10/11/2011 by emmievixen (2 reviews written)

Clone of Yamaha YBR 125 Fracrtion of the cost By all accounts faster. I have had one for two nights when my Vixen was being serviced and have to say I was impressed with the whole package. Took to riding it like a duck takes to water! If I was buying a sportier bike than my Vixen this would be it Same as a Ybr but a third of the price, well maybe half!! I was shocked at just how fast it was and how fresh the engine sounded despite the bike having a quite high mileage and being used for… Read Full Review
