It's not the fastest
It's not the cheapest
It's not small either.
The R125 is a great bike for ANY beginner. It's my first bike and I'd never ridden a bike before. It was sooo easy to ride. It's max speed is 84mph before it bounces off the limiter @10,500rpm, it's 4 stroke which means it's also very very reliable. It's a big bike. Similar in size to the R6 and what a stunner. The Michelin tyres that come with it stock aren't too good in the wet but most R125 owners wither use Bridgestone or Pirelli Sport Demon tyres. I've had my R125 now for nearly 18 months. It hasn't failed to start once and it hasn't had any mechanical problems. The only problem I've ever had is getting the nut out to change the oil (LOL).
Overall, at just over £4000, this bike is worth every penny and will blow your mind. Don't believe me, then check out MCN's top 10 125cc motorcycles. The R125 sits nice and comfy at number 1 :)
