Great learner legal bike, holds its own in looks and has a few notches up on the style indicator even when compared with some of the larger 600cc models out there.
I had a modified scorpion end can on my exhaust system and the growl it gave was very impressive.
Shame they took these bikes out of production i would have loved to have seen the next few generations of this bike… Read Full Review

I have had my Sachs XTC 125 for one year, and bought it with just 500 miles on the clock and have now done 8500km and the bike has never missed a beat. I have ridden the bike in the wet and not had 'wet spark plug' or 'water in fuel tank' problems which other owners have had. Some bikes that are for sale appear to be messed around with - so watch out when you go to buy one.
- Consumes lots of oil - so check regularly.
- Cold starts are sometimes difficult,but never a… Read Full Review

I saw people are having problems with there spark plug getting wet, try craft urself a cover for it i've already started on working on 1 made from a peice of copper [cus it wont rust] and it will just work as an umbrella for the plug
for good sound use a honda cbr end can… Read Full Review

i bought my sachs xtc racing brand new at the end of 04, since that time its had to have 2 replacement fuel tanks as faulty ones were fitted ( causing petrol leaks ) so its now on its 3rd tank, bearings went in the front and back wheels and that was not through general wear and tear, the bike has only just done 28000 kilometres ( 4 years later ) and is serviced on a regular basis. also the engine diaphram had to be replaced in early 2008 as i was getting hardly any power from the bike( mainly… Read Full Review

I love the look of the Sachs XTC Racing and as its rare people stop and look wondering if it is really a 125. Pulls well although not like a 2 stroke, it makes up for it in its economy and sound… Read Full Review

Brill bike brilliant bike to have lot of street cred, looks good in the college car park, but watch the plug to the spark plug, if it gets wet your knackered and it won ' t run till it ' s completely dry, and I mean really bone DRY also, as there is a lack of a rear hugger, if a wet road seems to aid the problem, my idea is, try and make one or fit a non standard hugger… Read Full Review

The Sachs 125 xct is a great looking bike but why not make it compete with the Aprilia rs 125? The thing that I like about this bike is it looks great and handles well and its also very tall because I am 6.3ft and I don't look out of place… Read Full Review

I bought this bike new 3 years ago and for the money I think the bike should have been more reliable. Sourcing replacement parts is a nightmare and the battery has to replaced at least once a year… Read Full Review

I just got a Sachs XTC 125 Racing and like it had 2 Honda NSR RR 125 before and like this better it does not sound like a hair dryer or smoke. Yes its a bit slower than my Honda NSR RR 125 but it pulls up hills better and sounds like a real bike. I have had 125kmph about 80mph today was not trying as still running it in only had it 4 days. The stopping power is far better than a Honda NSR RR 125 or the Honda NSR 80 and the TZR 50. It's very good on the petrol. As well I filled it up when I got… Read Full Review
