Hello I am from Malta and I bought one of these bikes brand-new. My bike is only 2 months old, so I can't judge it that much. But I still have few pros and cons to comment about. Pros: - Cheap to buy and run. - Very economical. I calculated that I can easily make 100 mpg or 36 km/l or 3 l/100km. - Very easy to handle. - It has good torque and keeps the gears very well, even with a light passenger behind you. - Great looks and seems like a big bike. - It's a fun bike. It behaves good on... (read more)

Hyosung 125rt Karion. The bike is good specially the preformance. I did max speed 78 MPH. And is good for a 125cc. But the tyres are dangerous specially in MALTA. They are like soap and bad on the roads specially when they get old. Nylon tyres are bad. I fitted new bridgestone tyres which now the bike handling is very good. Also the frame is rusty after a few years especially the swinging arm. The good think about the bike is that it looks like a big bike. (read more)

Good reliable bike, if your wandering about speed I was behind a 1.4 Clio the other day and over took it with the Clio driver trying hard to stop me. So it has the power to do what you need to do in a city. I personally wouldn't take it on the motorway, it can do over 70mph, iv taken her upto 73mph. Acceleration is quite decent too, there are loads of yzf-r125's were I live and it's as fast as them, really depending on the rider who comes out 1st. I'd recommend any1 on a CBT to get this...

I bought this bike brand new and finally have decided to sell it cos wanna upgrade to a bigger bike. It's an excellent learner bike. It looks great, it sounds great and it rides great. The riding experience is superb.
The fuel gauge would be a nice extra but I worked out that I can go 140miles ish, until it runs out of fuel... just need to keep an eye on it & it's alright.
It hasn't let me down at all. I would suggest it to anyone, it's a great bike for such price. (read more)

This is my first bike and for first few months I thought it was great. But then things started to go wrong the indicator relay has had to be replaced 4 times. Next to go was rear suspension, it took fives weeks for replacement to come. Now the timing screw has gone causing major damage to engine this has taken 4 weeks for replacement parts to come.

A good little bike with very few faults ( flip up stand is a pain, and the decals are really awful ). reliability is first rate ( not one problem in a whole year ),and it goes well for a 125. most people think it looks like a 250 and are suprised it's only a 125.
not so sure I'd buy a new one because of the depreciation, but I would recommend buying a second hand one for around the grand mark. it does around 80 -90 to the gallon, cheap road tax and insurance, what more could you want out of... (read more)

The Hyosung RT125D bike seems to go well for a 125. the bike does more than 85 mpg, and as it's a 4 stroke you dont have to add expensive oil every time you fill it up with petrol, unlike the 2 stroke's.
I think for a little 125 it's a good bike, and in my opinion it's as good as the Yamaha TW 125 and nearly as good as the Suzuki Van Van. I think the Suzuki is a little better finished off and the paint work seems to be of better quality, but it's as well finished off as the Yamaha.
If you can... (read more)

The Hyosung RT125 is a good looking learner leagle bike that hasnt let me down and gets me to work on time without any problems. Enjoyable to ride and looks bigger than a 125. Engine sounds good too! Obviously important to break the bike in as recommended. Stinks a bit as the engine is cooking in. This model is cheap to buy ( £1700), reliable, enjoyable to ride and I dont care if its not made by a Japanese manufacturer. Bottom line, its value for money. (read more)

The engine, although still sounding a little rough round the edges at max revs has loosened up considerably. Front forks have held up good with no leakages and the chrome has stabilised since being dressed with WD40 after chrome polishing. The bike still looks good, and although described as an easy bike to ride, I would say it feels a little `top heavy' and requires the rider to learn to read the feedback from the bike more than other bikes I have ridden effortlessly. It still represents... (read more)

From day one the bike has been extremely reliable and great fun to ride, on and off road. The initial 'shakedown' period is catered for in the owners manual in terms of quarter and half throttle openings in the first 1600 kms use, after which you can use the machine without restriction. As mentioned previously, it rides and feels like a much larger bike, and from the back appears larger especially with the massive tyre! It makes cornering a dream, and adds a feeling of total security and... (read more)
