“A fantastic fun motorbike!! ”

Written on: 13/03/2013

I really like my motorbike I don't go on the the road with it I just use it to ride around to farm on. I got it second hand but with only 188 miles on the clock so its pretty much new. The only thing is that I don't like about it is that when you put the stand down the engine stops and that when you are just pushing around it does feel pretty heavy. You would not think it was a cheap make. I got it from my cousin it was just standing around in his workshop for years not doing anything… Read Full Review

“Due to a lack of funds after passing my CBT, I jumped...”

Written on: 17/02/2010

Due to a lack of funds after passing my CBT, I jumped straight onto the Urban having not ridden for the first year. Bought from a friend of mine, the bike has given me no end of fun. I've covered over 2000 fantastic miles in the last 5 months and I plan to carry on.

I've dropped it a few times and scraped the side plastics getting it out of my garden, but it's survived my bullying and carries on like nothing has happened. It'll happily bomb along at 60mph, and is great around town.

I'd like… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/11/2009

Amazing bike, I really do not understand why people are saying these bad things about it things. Admittedly there was some teething problems at first but you get that with any bike/car. It tops out at 70mph witch is good. Any problems i have had the customer service from urban had been second to none. Tires are not very good in the wet but that is to be expected (there of road tires)...I would recommend this as a very cheep commuter. Very reliable. Strong bike. What you may find is some of the… Read Full Review

Bought this bike second hand mainly for my son to get to work on and myself to have a play on as said before the bike is so easy to ride tyres are no good in the wet when taking corners it tends to slide but thats to be expected with off road tyres. With the bike being so cheap it makes good practice for my son to fix and sort most of the gremlins out without the big bills, all in all a good cheap runaround… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/04/2007 by lucanhandley (22 reviews written)

Well, my experience of this bike overall was good, it had its teething problems but settled in to be a nice reliable commuter (wouldn't recommend it for off roading too much though) it's as fast as can be expected (70mph) flat out and handles surprisingly well.
Unfortunately someone has stolen it and it was third party only insured, so my days as a humble bike rider are over and its back on the bus… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/03/2007 by lucanhandley (22 reviews written)

I've done a thousand miles on my Urban DZ 125 now and its still going strong. A couple of bolts have come loose as to be expected and the only serious one is on the back brake. Now is sits to high and I have to lift my foot up over it but it will be easily fixed. Its only really happy doing 65mph as more than that it sound like the engine is working too hard. The tyres that are mentioned in previous reviews that are useless in the wet are fantastic in the dry so I won't bother changing them… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/02/2007 by lucanhandley (22 reviews written)

With my Urban DZ 125 we're back up to 9 overall rating again. After I fitted my new tank I have had no problems at all with it and also have got 2 spare new panels for the tank if I ever sell it. A couple of bolts have come loose but I expect this so no big issue. Urban Bikes still haven't sent me a rear mud guard and number plate mount and I will be chasing this up but to be honest my custom one looks better. its done almost 500 miles now and starts in the mornings no problem. I am changing… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/05/2007

It has its problems but if you look after it its not a bad bike at all. A friend of mine also has had one since 2005 he had a big bike but refused to get rid of it because it is so reliable. You must have got a dud or something because none of his welds have broken.

Written on: 07/02/2007 by lucanhandley (22 reviews written)

We're back up to 8 overall rating. Urban trading sent me a new tank and tank panels.
I fitted it all this morning and the tank they have sent me is a better one with more welds and stuff. The bike started first time as before and runs even better than before for some reason (maybe its getting run in).
I am back to loving my bike and overall I would have only used it for one day anyway so it wasn't too much trouble.
Thank you Urban Bikes !… Read Full Review
