“Brilliant bike”

Written on: 23/09/2013

I bought this bike new in 2009. I keep it garaged and don't use it in the rain generally. I have it serviced yearly and can honestly say it is a brilliant bike and unbelievable value for money. Twin exhaust and sounds lovely, goes like a dream and has never broken down except when the battery went flat because I left the parking light on. Has all the essentials, and more. It looks lovely with lots of chrome and I passed my test on it. It was affordable new and I wanted a new bike and for… Read Full Review

“Good Bike”

Written on: 29/08/2013

Ok I've been lucky, bought second hand for £200 and its 2 years old but spent £150 on it. Replaced clutch cable, mirror, engine casing, chain, sprocket, back light lens, fixed electric start. The ONLY real major problem is the rubbish nylon tyres, came off it on a wet road and slid my bike under a car! Its so bloody hard getting the correct rubber tyres for it. Got some Dunlop ones, same size but werent tubeless and now have to return them. My advice is this, if you wanrt a cheap back… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/05/2013 by wolfburgman (3 reviews written)

i have owned my lexmoto vixen bike for just over a year and a half and covered about 2000 miles. generally speaking this bike is ok for the money but the finish in places is poor. in particular the chrome is cheap quality and soon begins to flake off. make sure you keep the sidestand switch well greased or you will end up with running problems including misfires and cutting out. chains are weak too and soon stretch but after market ones are readily available. don,t over tighten the exhaust… Read Full Review

they can rust very quickly, but again if you stay on top of them they aren,t any worse than many other bikes. regular washing then treating with A.C.F. usually does the trick. my son has a Honda cbf 125 which has rusted very quickly.

Written on: 18/10/2012

First month or so was fine after that I had nothing but problems! Both exhausts fell off and had to spend a further £200 on replacing the head of the engine! The exhaust bracket bolts are prone to snap! After these problems my electric start has just stopped working and I've no idea why! Which is very annoying when your travelling down the road an it just cuts out so you have to pull over to kick start it again! Head bearings became loose very quickly and the oil was evaporating quicker than I… Read Full Review

If its new give it to the dealer to sort out, should still be under warranty. If not i'm no mechanic far from it but how about changing the oil i think they run on a 'wet clutch' system and don't like car oil in em so much. try a good quality bike oil.It certainly won't hurt. good luck mate.

“vixen could be better”

Written on: 11/03/2012

Had my vixen for one year, it does'nt like rain. you will have to get the spark plug connector chainged. Also disconect the stand cut off switch. The bike vibarates but bareable. Head light bulb is prone to blowing. Apart from that its really good on fuel 1oo miles to the gallon,the tank will take £14 without leaking through petrol cap. £50 for a back tyre £60 for a new chain and sprocket fitted you cant go wrong at that… Read Full Review

my one doesnt mind rain
done 5k in 6 months spark plug etc still original
stand cut off switch operates as it should
not a lot of vibration, quite smooth

head light has become a bit of a problem but dealer is fixing it f.o.c

fuel consumption - about 80 mpg - current price 1.36 per litre tank holds 12.5 litres cost to fill
is 17 quid

so you must get cheap petrol, eh

only leaks thru cap if you overfill but i do admit cap not that good

where in uk are you and which dealer did u buy bike from

Bought one of these recently after spending many months researching Chinese bikes on the net and finding this to largely being the best rated.I've covered 500km in all weather conditions and have so far been happy. The side stand kill switch WILL give you problems by cutting your bike out intermittently. Don't leave it and hope for the best, its a simple 2 minute job to disconnect or even unscrew and tuck under the seat. this problem is well documented on blogs and forums and simple steps… Read Full Review

I baught a Lexmoto Vixen 125 in november 2011. it was cheap granted. I have had nothing but problems with the bike. The first was the exhaust studs kept snappin and after 1 month I need to replace the cylinder head (£45). I mananged to solve that issue by reinforcing the exhaust studs. I did this by placing a nut on either side of the mounting bracket. As of late the bike keeps cutting out around every 100 miles. I have yet to find a solution to this problem. Not to mention the lack of a fuel… Read Full Review

only reason for the petrol to seep out of you cap is that you are brimming it, putting to much petrol in, thats what they do thats as there is a little gap in between the cap and the tank

the most likely cause of your cutting out problem could be your sidestand switch. i tried all sorts to find out the problem and finally the switch wasa checked then replaced. problem solved.

In 1981 I had an XJ750 Yamaha - it was fitted with a digital fuel guage.
2 years ago on my 50th birthday I was very lucky to receive a gift from my younger brother, a mint nick 2000 reg XJ600N. It doesn't have a fuel guage!

I've just bought (awaiting registration) a Lexmoto Gladiator 125 Scoot.
Because of the ridiculous price of fueI I was planning to start commuting to work on theXJ600N but at 55mpg it's not really that frugal, as it's in perfect order I don't really want to put miles on it.
Also I plan on fitting a screen on the Gladiator to add to the weather protection alreay there. I'm hoping that the plastics will keep the weather off the electrics/engine.
I'm a practical chap, I'm hoping that with common sense, TLC and copious amounts of WD40 that the Gladiator will be reliable and give me 90mpg!

Why not fill up (making a note of mileage), carry an extra pint in your pocket and keep going until you run out. Or of course just check main tank mileage and only use reserve to get you to the nearest filling station.

tank holds 2.75 gallons

100 mpg = 275 miles

275 miles = 442 km

So if I were you I would fill the tank up every 320km

Set trip meter to zero on next fill up

dials are in km

I have covered 2500km on it already and I havent had any problems at all so far.

It is however essential to have the bike regularly serviced and oil changes along with filter changes are a must!The performance is good and it will plod along at 60mph without a… Read Full Review

This Haotian 125 is a new acquisition for me so still have a lot to learn.
I am returning to motorbiking after a break of 40 years.
I think this is an ideal "test the water & learner" machine.
It looks the part. Has enough oomph for a novice but is no racer.
A great "beat the traffic queues" commuter bike.

Written on: 14/05/2009 by T SHEPPARD (1 review written)

The Haotian HT-8 125 (Vixen 125) is exellent value for money.
Look after it and it will look after you. An easy bike to handle great first bike or for those coming back in to bike`s.
I last rode a bike in 1972 an old Ariel Arrow I have`nt `rode a bike until now April 2009. This Haotian Vixen sort of puts me in the mind of the old B S A. Bantam. or Triumph Tiger cub.
Just a bloody good ole work mans bike. Cheap economical and very very presentable… Read Full Review

The Haotian HT-8 125 (Vixen 125) is a nice looking learner bike and sounds much bigger will tell in a few months what reliability is like but pleased so far

ok have had this bike over a year now and its been reliable an a pleasure to own allso after a bit of tweeking have taken and past the mod one and module two bike test on it i recommend one for learning or back to biking points to watch for are the crank case vent needs emptying every service other wide it fills with water (thats what it is desinged for crankcase condensation etc) but if it fills and blocks then crankcase pressure builds up so drain it every service if not more often i do mine every month as i do a bolt check

Written on: 18/03/2009 by The Mac (1 review written)

The Haotian HT-8 125 is a fantastic buy for commuting (I do 60 miles per day) or as a first bike. and does easily 130 to the gallon. The chrome is as good as new with very little attention and the build quality is amazing for the money. Reliable is not saying enough, it starts everytime and runs sweetly, have clocked up over 3000 miles commuting to work. great in traffic as it is very nippy and manoeuvrable but still manages a steady 60mph on the A3… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/12/2008

I had this bike for one and a half years and it was a great first bike. I paid £800 for it delivered to my door and sold it for £600, so better impossible.
The bike is extremely confortable and very good looking and the sound goes together with the bike (nice low rev grunt), I had more attention on this bike that I have today with my Ducati. It is extremely easy to use, the clutch is very soft and there are no many problems to find the gears (the gear indicator is great).
It handles… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/09/2008 by hazard11 (1 review written)

I have had my bike three weeks and to say i am happy would be an understatement. It looks great sounds great (like a bike three times it's size). Very stable at all speeds with little or no vibration. i only bought the bike as a replacement for my lifan 125 after it got written off when the front tyre blew and i binned. would recomend this bike to any new rider or seasoned rider who wants a cheap a to b bike with great looks… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/08/2008

I have had one for work since Jan 07 and it's never missed a beat. For the price a good starter bike and with a lower seat height it helps smaller riders. Good to learn on and easy to maintain with parts getting more accessble now. When I bought the bike I took the time to cover all areas in silicone spray, changed the chain and put a good chrome polish on. Good MPG about 85+. Still looks good and I ride in all weathers… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/08/2008 by johnnycatfish (1 review written)

I bought mine two years ago and have had my ups and downs with it. When it arrived it took a long time to find a mechanic willing to even look at it, but once I did it took about 3 visits and a few months to get it all working correctly. It now does about 180 miles a week to take me to work and back through the four seasons - a true, inexpensive commuter bike. I've now passed my DAS and I'm looking for a big bike, but the Haotian Vixen has been an inexpensive and quite enjoyable way to give me… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/05/2008 by AndyAndrew (1 review written)

I bought a Haotian Vixen several weeks ago & have been pleasantly surprised. Despite its reputation for being a bit slow I managed to get mine easily to the red line at 10000 rpm (64mph) & with a bit of a push got it to 70mph, albeit at 11200rpm, something I dont recommend you do too often however it happily cruises at just under 60 which is really quite enough for a learner bike. As for reliability in the wet, I took it from Andover to Glastonbury at the bank holiday weekend in the worst… Read Full Review

This motorcycle is very easy to ride, it handles well at all speeds, and is extremely comfortable, I have owned mine for over 12 months and have covered over 6,000 miles without any problems what so ever. This motorcycle is a first class 125 for the new price asked, I would defiantly purchases this model again… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/10/2007 by Azazel2k (1 review written)

I bought a Haotian HT-8 125 (aka Vixen 125) from new almost a year ago and although it has only been used for social occasions and has thus only done a little over 1000km it has served me well so far. It has always been very reliable and for the scant £800 I bought it for I must say I have been very impressed. First off this bike looks fantastic, it is an absolute monster much bigger than I was expecting and certainly a lot bigger than most 125's it has loads of chrome and as long as you look… Read Full Review

I found this review very helpful because...the costumer uses a good argumentation to give a all round user the details needed to make his own choice..
<br/>
<br/>This bike should be sold in Denmark, but is not due to no importer or distributor.. Neither for this small chopper nor any from other from the CG125 family..

I found this review very helpful because... I am purchasing the Lexmoto Arrow. its the same bike, same engine and comes from the same factory but has a different shape. Its my first bike and I too have had a hard time finding reviews on the Lexmoto Arrow. After reading this reviews i feel much more confident in making my purchase.

Written on: 06/09/2009

I found this review very helpful because...I am thinking of buying one to commute to work etc, I was originaly going to buy a suzuki marauder but my funds will now not allow it and I want to buy from new. So reading this and other reviews I think I am comfortable buying one now, and you cannot fault the price.
