I bought one of these of a friend for 280 on a 63 plate (2013) never drove a geared bike before so took a day or 2 to learn as I'm a quick learner. Very comfortable bike had about 77 out of it feels much bigger than a 125 the engine is sound will run for miles on end with no problems mine has done about 4 thousand miles and is good the problems lie in the exhaust bolts which are terrible and will snap and come loose took me 3 days to drill them out and replace them with steel bolts and the… Read Full Review

I was GIVEN one for getting to work on, a 2009 fairly clean bike which considering its age looked pretty beat up with some heavy rusting around the battery housing but apart from that it looked OK. I took it out for a spin and found it really doesnt like low cornering as the big flat foot step hits the ground before you think it should. It looks bigger than it is, its a bit of an inside out tardis and gets lot of comments with none of them negative. Appearance wise, its really nice… Read Full Review

bought one of these machines about a month ago for 500 quid, it had a few problems as do they all mostly due to lack of maintenance, enjoyed doing the work, enjoy riding the bike and it looks the part, true things work loose this is why we check them,this bike has done 8000 miles and the engine is good, changed the oil as you do, on the hole have to say for the money these bikes are well worth it have to say many things are made in China and they are a very clever race of people, and best of… Read Full Review

I hope anyone planning to buy the bike reads this first. I brought my bike from an online bike/scooter company for around 1k. Firstly, i had to wait like 3 months for the bike. Then it didnt start. Fuel was not passing through the carb. Garage cost 135 quid. Lukily the warranty covered this. Then had not much fun driving around at 30mph for two weeks as i couldnt go over 5k revs. I have since done just over 1000km. First problems...afted 150km the left exhaust fell away from the engine whilst… Read Full Review

I got a second hand one and drove it all over Scotland for 3 years or so. Firstly it is a very nice bike to ride, big and heavy too so get's you used to the weight for bigger bikes. The engine seems to keep going and going without any problems - think I did around 20-30000 in those 3 years. It is very econnomical on fuel. The bolts on the bike do seem to come loose quicker than with other 125's I've ridden however the main problem lies in that the bolts are of an inferior quality. On… Read Full Review

Having read a lots of reviews on Pioneer Navada I thought it was time I put my pennies worth in. I bought my Nerv 2013 (Gladis) 200 miles away from where I live. She had only done less than a mile on the clock and had been stored since April of this year. On collecting her the Battery was dead so a new one was bought and the return trip made. My journey took me over 7 hours running into the early hours of the morning. Breaks taken during the trip were more for my behind than anything added to… Read Full Review

Only done 400 km on it, but already having problems. Doesn't run in the rain, keeps cutting out when wet, but we returned to the garage , no fault found. Bearings on forkes failing ( yes after 400km!!!) , you can hear a grinding noise,and feels lumpy. Rust coming through on almost every part. Crome falling off. Also various bolts keep comming undone, ( eg Foot plate ) , i keep tightening them up , but they vibrate lose again. All wiring exposed , not even Taped together! Bike looks the part… Read Full Review

I purchased the Pioneer Torro 125CC as a fair priced way to get about as I am short of funds at present after being made redundant some time back. (I only cover 8 miles a day if I am lucky! I have owned this bike for just over 3 months and all I can say is if you are tempted by the stylish looks and big bike build for a 125cc don't be tempted, forewarned is forearmed!!!! These bikes are a total waste of money and will throw a catalogue of problems up from the moment you drive it away from the… Read Full Review

Pioneer Nevada XF125L-4B
A review by Wes Fazzani
Having just finished watching the final episode of season 2 of "the Sons of Anarchy", I had watched the whole of season 1 and season 2 over the course of about a week (it's a great TV show!!!) I had one of those moments men describe as a flash of inspiration, and which women describe (when said moment relates to her male counterpart) as a moment of madness. I decided I wanted to be a biker. So, clutching the trusty Visa card I picked up the… Read Full Review

its well built , the four-stroke is a good quality , I don't vibrate , Nd its giving me a 75mph speed burst Nd 60mph cruise control , I cruised at 60 on a motorway all day Nd did 200miles before filling up.
chrome sis bars. spotlights remote start , abs , cruise control , Nd the reliability off of Pioneer's 4 stroke.
this bike cruses from herefordshire 2 london with ease at 60 all the way… Read Full Review

Well i decided to get one of these as my first ever motorcycle. That was somewhat of a mistake. Initially upon delivery of the bike, i was impressed. It looks the part with its shiny chrome twin exhaust and crash bars, 2 panniers for storage space and nice large foot rests for a comfortable ride. Unfortunately, as it was my 1st bike, i didnt know what i should check before i signed for it, and the delivery driver told me it had had a full Pre Delivery Inspection before coming to me. Well after… Read Full Review
