I am on L plates and only 5 foot tall, so my choice of bike was pretty restricted. However, this bike has everything I needed to give me confidence and get experience. It's light enough for me to have no problems wheeling it around for parking. I reached 70mph on it yesterday on the flat, no tailwind with no problems at just over 9500 revs, but then there's not much of me to weigh the bike down! It looks good for a 125 - quite a classic look and not spindly or cheap-looking at all. The engine sounds good and it has the power for quick acceleration when you need it. I love riding this bike!
The only bad point I can think of is that I think the brakes could be more powerful, and once or twice I've skidded when braking hard but that could just be my inexperience or me driving it too much like a car!
Generally the Suzuki GN 125 is a great little bike for learning on, commuting, doing short or long distances and is excellent value for money in terms of original price (I got mine new) and running costs.
