Not the worst but no where near the best, starting & some idling problems finish on the crome & paintwork is only just better than chinese copys. Left out in bad weather for awhile & you have to keep it constantly clean to stop corrosion. Overpriced & trying hard to compete with yamaha ybr & honda cg125, fails on all counts. Shame as cheap parts are used & spoils what should be a good bike. You might as well buy chinese at least its half the price & same quality built. (read more)

Bought this bike 3 months ago after getting my CBT. I love this bike, it handles well, it is reliable and fun to ride. The only problem I have had with it is it does need the engine warming up before you ride it or it does tend to cut out on you. I have done 4,000 miles on my bike in such a short space of time, I go off on rides with other bikers (often long runs) and this bike just keeps going!(having said that I bought it brand new 13 plate!). The only other thing is it is under... (read more)

Am writing from Singapore. Gotten my license 6 months ago and then gotten this almost 9 year old bike (done 49,000 km since year 2004) recently. My first one. Sent for a major servicing and changed a lot of stuff. Starting the bike after parked for one or two days seems to be a problem. It idles for a couple of second and stalls. I can feel / hear that the idle is 'weak' or the engine is 'lacking' something. Sometimes if it idles, it will also stall once I throttle it. I then realised that... (read more)

I bought my EN125-2A 5 months ago and I cannot be more pleased with the little monster. It over takes most 125's like a knife through hot butter. I reach 110km/h flat and the mpg is 100+ i measured it the other day and got a monstrous 123mpg. But then again its a 12 plate and very new. I should wait till about 7k's on the clock. By far the best starting bike ever. Economic and completely reliable. Speed - decent. Breaking - decent. Fuel capacity - 14L Fuel consumption -... (read more)

I've had my lovely blue Suzuki en 125 2A 2004 since April 2012 never really had a problem that was the bike fault mainly my own (losing the keys, puncher)have had lots of fun on it and it holds the road really well.I would recommend the bike to anyone would, i would say there's a lack in power at the top end with half tank of fuel but that might be the fact I got a huge box on the back. Great economy 160 miles to a tank 96 mpg, easy to learn gears on for those whiling to improve from a twist... (read more)

Bought mine a couple of years ago with 7k on the clock and was a late 06 plate. Anyway I have had nothing but problems with this bik. For a start it’s an import. They are made to Suzuki spec however they are made using cheap materials and cheap metal that rusts to the max. My bike has been garaged ever since i bought it and the rust just keeps coming. First problems i had was electrics shorts and bad earths and god knows what else. Finally got that fixed after multiple visits to a garage.... (read more)

I have had this bike for over a year now, bought it second hand. It was my first ever manual bike, and I learned to ride it very quickly. Great for learner's, have been using it everyday to travel to work for the past year. Very little to complain about. Starts fine in winter, with a little nudge. It may be my bike, but does struggle to get above 55mph, especially on any inclines.. Max speed I reached was 65mph, and that was on a nice sunny day on flat tarmac. However, I am still happy with...

needed to downgrade to cut fuel expense,and had chance to buy this en125.initially,the bike was very sluggish and seemed as if it was on the choke all the time.even then,it was doing 200miles to the tank. found that the diaphram in the carb had split in several places,and now she revs out in top gear and fuel consumption should go up.for daily use i would recommend this commuter to anyone (read more)

I've had the EN-125 just under a Year now, Bought it as a little commuter to get to and from Work. I'm quite a heavy guy at 220lbs and this bike is absoloutely great off the line, I leave behind other 125 bikes I ride with and on a nice warm day I've had her over 75MPH on flats.

I had my thunder last October, 2009 and I'm still comparing it with the other bikes available in the market. I wanted to upgrade the size of the tires and was thinking of either reducing the rims to a 17 inch rim or just get a 120 or 140/80/18 for the rear and just transfer the original rear tires in front. I guess i want it to look like a big bike. Acceleration is good but an additional hp would definitely be a plus. I'm happy with it and would like to know if there are after market... (read more)

Bought this little bike to get experience on the road before going in for my full DAS course. Wanted a little bike that was cheap and easy to maintain and easy to ride.
The little engine pushes out about 12hp and will leave most cars behind but runs out of puff above 35-40mph. The exhaust note is surprisingly throaty and the airbox makes a nice noise at full throttle. It will cruise at 60mph but at that speed you tend to get blown about a bit as the bike doesn't weigh much more then about... (read more)

The Suzuki EN 125 is a nice bike to ride, except in the wind. I had mine 6 months and then got knocked off and am going through the whole process to know if its a total loss or not. It goes quick when given time to get there, but from a stand still can be a bit slow off the mark. I think in the 125cc category its definately a good option. But be aware its an import, not a genuine suzuki and will not get as much as something like a Yamaha YBR or yzf125 if/when it comes to selling for upgrade... (read more)

MIne is the Suzuki EN-2A model and have had it since new (march 2006). It has covered 23,000 with no problems at all.
Over 100 miles per gallon every time. I once checked the fuel consumption from a full tank and it returned 112 miles per gallon.
It will reach speeds over 60mph with ease.
Starts first time every time.

The Suzuki EN 125 bike is a real head turner, nicely designed and extremely comfortable to ride. The bike is very very quick and ive had 75mph out of mine unmodified. It just gives and gives, good alround acceleration and brilliant mpg. handles well cornering at both low and higher speeds. The honda cg125 looks very dated and old fashioned next to it. Great sounding engine, a really talker. I love mine and haven't regretted buying it for a second. (read more)

This is my first ever bike which I'm riding after passing my CBT. The bike was brought to commute to work and save some cash. Fuel economy is fantastic compared to the car, I've gone from 150-200 quid a month in the car to 20-30 quid in the bike! The bike is fun to ride and has made me fall in love with biking, the full test isn't far off! The Suzuki gets up to 60mph easily and quickly. It will sit on dual cariageways at 60mph and I dont feel intimidated at all. The build quality appears to... (read more)

My first bike and no problems so far. I did my CBT on a Honda CG and was looking for something similar but this bike is much better in my opinion. Good acceleration for a 125 and tops out around 65mph. Managed to get 70mph once but it was in the red so bailed out. I have been using it all year and it's never failed to start and no bulbs have blown and no other problems to mention. (read more)

Just a quick note I bought a aftermarket alarm system (that had the same amount of connectors for the alarm connector block in the wiring loom)
I fitted it and since then I have had no bulbs blow on me and this was a regular occurance before hand as I was changing it every other day at the longest time.
If needed I can supply a wiring set up document if you want to install an alarm yourselves. (read more)

Parts for the Suzuki EN125 are easy to get, light, fun, fun and fun... does around 150kM before I get a 1/4 tank left and then I fill it back up I will one day run it dry just to find out how much I can get out of it on a tank.
If you can pick one of these up and its running get it you wont regret it. I paid £750 for mine with a lot of issues... not a lot left now just breaks, bearings, L/H mirror, 1st gear bulb, clutch change) but my bike has done 20600kM and was a learning schools bike so... (read more)

This bike is a sound all round bike and I recommend it. The way it operates and performs of course it is only a 125 but it's value for money and if you are looking for economical satisfaction then go out and buy one as I have had an RG125 and a GN125 in the Suzuki range and even the Van Van which does not come close because it has a tiny tank and is quite slow with no fuel gauge. The gears were a bit crunchy but I am not trying to put the little blighter down. But every bike has its faults... (read more)
