Fuel Economy (Around 90 mpg)
One of the easiest motorcycles to ride
Like most 125cc, can't go faster than 70 mph
The Suzuki GN125 is a great nifty little bike, especially in town or village centres. In my eyes it is the best mass produced 125cc out there. Suzuki once again have done an excellent job!
I got this bike prior to me passing my bike test, and it really helped me to achieve the wonderful pink licence that I now have! It is a very good first bike which will help you improve your motorcycling skills, especially if you have not been riding for that long.
I have been riding my suzuki for nearly 5 months now, and I still love the bike. Even though I can now get a bigger bike, I just don't want to.
Another positive point is the fact that I have only had to fuel up a handful of times. THIS BIKE SEEMS TO RUN ON PETROL FUMES! Amazing!!!!
Yet there are some negative sides to this bike. One is the top speed of it. At 40 mph you are already in 5th gear doing about 6000 revs! By 65 mph you are going at 9000 revs. I have not gone faster than this, in fear of going into the "Red Zone" of the revs, and blowing the engine!
Yet apart from this, I really like this bike, and I think anyone who gets it will enjoy it to!
