I purchased my 11 year old Suzuki to replace my 3 year old Kymco Pulsar which was a total loss through an insurance claim. Between owning these two bikes, I was riding a Yamaha YBR 125, and so have a reasonable base to review the GN. For one, despite being years old the build quality is much better than the Kymco. Not because the Kymco was poor, but because the GN is just built to a better standard, and that shows in it's age. The GN looks very nice and feels more compact and balanced than… Read Full Review

I have had my GN for just over a year and its been amazing. when I brought it it had 9,000miles on the clock and now has 13,000 and its never let me down. The bike feels very light and nibble in traffic and on the country roads. the tyres are not big fat road tyres but they have plenty of grip. The Suspension is very effective in taking sharp jolts from potholes and not to bouncy. The engine is great, slightly difficult to get going on a cold morning but once she's warm she's fine. Pulls… Read Full Review

Bought my Fym suzuki 125 gn 8 and a half months ago and iv =e never had to repair or rebuild a thing! im nearly 10 stone and im 5"9. on a long straight i hit 73(ish)mph without too much of a push. going down a hill with a slight negative gradient, i have had past the 80 mark without red lining. the bike has 5 gears but if you put a 6th gear into it she would SMASH the 90 marks and make it easier to cruise on. the bike ticks over very smoothly and is fairly quiet. everything is standard on it… Read Full Review

Hi, I'm a great fans of 2strokes bikes and previously hate 4strokes. I guess because of bad experiences I had riding 4strokes 125c bikes of some friends. They were sooo slow on the first gear and they reached 100km/h with big effort. As my 2stroke Suzuki A100 (yr 92) riding cost was becoming too high, decided to have a 125cc 4srtoke ( for low cost maintenance reasons) even if in the start I was not that excited. But now i'm happy riding my Suzuki GN125cc. Got bike since 8 month now and made… Read Full Review

I`ve been riding bikes for over 14 years and have had everything from sports 600`s to a chopper (bad move) so like to think I know me bikes ! Been without a bike for a few months due to garage space so thought I would get a little 125 to commute on. Had my 2007 black gn for about a week now and I think its great, makes me smile just as much as my big bikes although in different ways. It handles great, its nippy in traffic and is great for a blast along country lanes. OK I except its never going… Read Full Review

I got this bike as my first bike, it was a gift from my parents so naturally I am thrilled with it! I completely stripped mine to clean it up and fix any issues as it is second hand. The bike is very very easy to work on and service so its a perfect introduction to bikes! It also looks great. Parts are easy and cheap to obtain if needed. It only needs a litre of oil for a full change!
The riding position of the bike is upright and comfortable, you could sit on it all day. Basically its as… Read Full Review

My first bike, perfect for me beging a girl. But even me standing at 5ft 5 thinks its a bit small. But i couldn't have bought a better bike.

The GN125 is great bike to ride, had 70mph out of it along a strait (after going downhill) and that was pretty much it, few revs more but wouldnt trust going that much futher (atlest for now)
great for around town, great thing to learn on, has enough power to pull a wheelie (done one, didnt mean to, was trying to pull away)
great for the money as well, cheap on fuel (10litre tank/2.2gal)
cheap to repair as well (even though it is a bit of a pain to find parts, but when you do, they are… Read Full Review

Suzuki GN 125 is a great bike for learning how to ride. I am 155 lbs. and 5'8". The bike is a tad small for me, but is a lot of fun and cruises nicely up to 55 mph. Extended riding at 60-65 mph is possible (except up hills and when riding into the wind) but is pretty well maxed out at 65 mph. I've had it up to 75 mph when going down a hill. This is a great bike for riding around in small towns or out of town on roads with a 45-55 mph speed limit. At 90 mile per gallon, it is cheap fun… Read Full Review

I've had my Suzuki GN 125 for nearly 2 years. Its a 1998 and has done around 35k miles.
In my eyes its been an absolute trashmonkey. It seems every week something else goes wrong, most recently a complete engine refurb which cost a lot and was only done because I thought it would be cheaper than a new bike entirely. I'm not sure it will. The wiring started to fail and numerous other repairs have eventually left me with a bike costing more on repairs than it did on the price of buying it in the… Read Full Review

I have a 2000 Suzuki GN125 (I have owned it for 3 yrs) and think it is totally ACE! Fair enough, newer bikes might be more 'punchy' BUT you have to admit, aesthetically this bike is just gorrgeous! Spoked wheels, lots of chrome, dead cheap to run - retro styling without the retro price. I am totally in love with it and if forced to choose between it and the husband, it would be a tough call! These bikes are the 'classics' of tomorrow, so if you have one, hang onto it!… Read Full Review

A friend a I just crossed South America from North to South (12,000 km) with those two little Suzuki GN 125 and they were amazing! Everybody told us we were crazy not to buy a big BMW as every rider does but we did not regret at all! We bought them new in Quito, Ecuador and the only problems we had during those 3 months were burned candles (mainly due to the altitude in Peru).
In addition, the GN125 is incredibly easy to ride for beginners: I had never ride before this road trip and I mastered… Read Full Review

I bought a brand new 2008 Suzuki GN125 back in June and I have to say I absolutely adore it! I'm about 5"4ft and female so I'm by no means strong. I've found it to be very easy to handle, on road and generally moving around on foot. As for the speed of the bike, it takes off very quickly, extremely nippy! Top speed for me is near abouts 75mph, not sure if that's due to my weight or not but either way, I have no problems whatsoever keeping up with fast traffic.
Very comfortable for longer… Read Full Review

Started learning on a GN125 which I purchased privately on ebay for £500 (1998 S plate with 9000 miles on the clock in good order though not pristine).
Normal 125 budget motoring applied. £15 road tax, £56 Third Party F&T and about 85 mpg by my reckoning, bearing in mind I'm 6'3" and 14 stone. A lighter rider would get more no doubt.
The GN ran like a dream and never once gave me any problems. Needed a new battery but that was all I ever replaced on the bike prior to selling it on after… Read Full Review

In general the Suzuki GN125 is good, its good on petrol, good ride quality, superb build quality and taking into account what the GN 125 is actually made for which is commuting through towns and cities to work it does the job excellently its loads better than any of the chinese copies available so dont waste your money on those it will last you decades if you look after the engine properly and maintain servicing, but to sum up the bike itself disregarding it's commuting purpose I would say its… Read Full Review

Have owned my Suzuki GN 125 for 2 years now, and it still puts a smile on my face! very responsive bike, plenty of power and it's 4 stroke engine sounds fabulous. Great fuel economy 90 mpg. very comfortable for reasonable journeys, but remember: it's a 125! This bike is not a sports bike, so if you are looking for a speed machine try a CBR 125. However the CBR has the looks, but in my opinion get trough the test and trade up for a proper machine, unless you want to want an L plate racer, that… Read Full Review

Handling and braking on the Suzuki GN 125 are Good. All those things are if you service it in the right time. For the Disk brake problem, I fixed a new grooved disk and the problem vanished! Suzuki should thank me for" Tweaking" this issue which is a common problem among GN and GS 125 Series. Oh and another thing, please put in a fuel indicator, because I keep on riding until the Bike stops (and then I end up walking)

Advertisements lead you to believe you can hit 65 mph at 9600 rpm, I advise not to try it. The Suzuki GN 125 bike will last a lot longer if you set a red line at 7000 rpm or so; Japanese bikes have an unrealistically high red line so they will wear out more quickly. I think I can keep my bike on the road for another 20,000 miles, and when I hit 100,000 I would like to retire it and buy another one… Read Full Review

I got a bargain for my Suzuki GN 125, £950 for it second hand but basically a brand new bike. I am learning to ride on it, so far I have found it great. It's very comfortable, and feels stable. Plus it is imposing enough that other road users respect my space on the road (in general!) It also looks good! Minor points, the carburettor flap sticks slightly, causing high revs when idling in 1st gear, and the front brake squeaks a little. These may just be initial symptoms as I break the bike in… Read Full Review

I love my Suzuki GN 125 and I could not be happier with the price I got it for. I picked up my 125 for the price of only $800 with 3,000 miles on it. The kid fortunatly had no idea what the bike was worth and all he knew ,in his mind, is that it was just a small older slower bike. I would suggest this bike to ANY first time rider.

The Suzuki GN125 is a great nifty little bike, especially in town or village centres. In my eyes it is the best mass produced 125cc out there. Suzuki once again have done an excellent job!
I got this bike prior to me passing my bike test, and it really helped me to achieve the wonderful pink licence that I now have! It is a very good first bike which will help you improve your motorcycling skills, especially if you have not been riding for that long.

I got my Suzuki GN 125 in October 2000. I rode it for three weeks, then moved away for four years. I've been driving it regularly for about 15 months now and I LOVE THIS LITTLE BIKE! Everybody said "get a bigger bike, one that'll go on the freeway. You'll grow out of a small bike in a month". The problem with that theory was that I was too afraid to go 60+ MPH on a motorcycle. I was also afraid of falling over while parking. So I found the secondhand GN125 at a dealer for 900 bucks!… Read Full Review

I have owned this Suzuki GN 125 bike for about a year and a half and have done about 9000kms. In general it is a good bike - good ride and handling, it's nice and light with a low centre of gravity, light controls, good lights, clear instrumentation and yes, it even sounds good too.
However I have had a few problems. At about 7000kms the oil pump driveshaft, which is plastic, broke, and the engine seized; this has scored the bearings, which is particularly a problem as the camshaft bearings do… Read Full Review

I just bought my Suzuki GN 125 and I couldn't be happier with it. It looks, sounds and feels like a bigger bike so I've had more nods from other bikers than I ever got on my scooter.
It goes anywhere on a sniff on fuel (about 88 mpg) and tops out at about 70. (75 downhill.) It goes like [expletive] off a shovel and I even beat a lad on Sachs XTC from the lights the other day, which rocked!
It's really comfortable, looks savage and I only paid a grand for it second hand! It's done 2000 miles… Read Full Review
