I brought my Honda CBR125 with 400 miles on the clock...I have now covered over 3500 miles on it!
So first thing first...speed! I have got 81mph out of it but this is not a regular occurence...normally it sits between 70-75mph. Now think about it, as the national limit for a single lane road is 60...its quick enough to overtake and on the duel lanes, not every one does 60! Catch my drift?
1st gear is rubbish so its bumped into 2nd sraight away and its happy thru to 4th. Hit 5th and you need to be on a flat or goin down hill to pop over 70mph. Why they put a 6th gear on it I do not know! The front breaks do there job, they dont need to be to sharp as it aint that fast. The rear is only any good for trailing in the corners. Comfortability: Im just under 6 ft so on my 20mile one way commute my legs ache but not an awful amount.
Overall: 1st bike? Buy it, you will love it, but start savin those pennies for a bigger bike cause you will want more power in a matter of weeks!
