“Fantastic 125 sports motorcycle”

Written on: 01/06/2021 by Jay2008 (1 review written)

This is truly 1 of the best 125 motorcycles I have owned over the past 5yrs. Almost full 15hp water cooled engine which is smooth and extremely lively.cruises easily and comfortably at 60mph with plenty to spare. Nice upright seating position allows long journeys with ease.very little vibration from the engine and pulls nicely through the 5 gears. Nice looking large sports bike too with a good road presence.could be mistaken for a larger cc variant. Quality of fit and finish is very good and the tyres are of kenda brand and seem well planted in all weather.overall an outstanding motorcycle for the cost.great value machine that is superb to ride.

“Dealim Roadsport 125”

Written on: 02/08/2013

Having just passed my CBT and wanting to get some experince before going for my unrestricted licence, I shopped around for a good 125. Having never hear of a Dealim I was plesently surpirsed at how good this bike is. I bought new and was happy to pay a little extra. The bike is big for a 125. Parked next to a 600 Fazer I found it was very simular and as I am a 6'4" lump, this was good. The quality of the build is also very good. I would have like neater welding in places but overall I can't fault it. Power is an issue, but that was always going to be the case as it is a 125. Sad to move on. Missing it already. This bike looks big, acts big and still easy to learn on. I would have no issues with recommending this to any 17 year old. It would forgive those early mistakes and still be fun.

would £800 be a decent price for a 2015 bike?

“Daelim Roadsport 125 - All you could expect from 125.”

Written on: 25/09/2011 by wingman14 (1 review written)

Had the Daelim 125 for six months and believe it to be the best value 125 out there. This may not be the case in Europe where they retail at around £3,000, but in the UK there are some spectacular deals to had, especially on second-hand models. The Roadsport is a technical advance on the Roadwin which is well proven and has been around for about seven years. The two bikes share the same frame, not the same engine. The Roadsport is not simply a Roadwin with a fancy fairing. Technically the bike is pretty much everything you could expect from a 125cc four-stroke. Fuel injection, 4 valves, water cooling balance shaft. 14.63 hp (11KW) the same as Yamaha R125. Performance is pretty much on par with an R125 too, perhaps topping out a little lower at 75mph upright and 80 mph tucked down behind the fairing. The handling is assured and petrol economy around 90mpg. I have done a done a non-stop run of 150 miles quite happily. 60-65mph is a genuine cruising speed. Reliability has been 100%. Build quality is good which is what you should expect from Daelim - a Korean engineering company with many years of experience of building small capacity scooter and bikes, some in partnership with Honda. I would say quality is maybe just short of Japanese, but I have owned Suzukis that aged faster. It is large for a 125cc which is both its strength and weakness. It looks like a 600 and feels substantial and secure. It is a little heavy for a 125 at 142Kg. I own a Honda Firestorm which doesn't actually feel a lot smaller, despite being 1000cc. The weight means that first and second gears are low and need to be buzzed through quickly. Power is soft until around 7,000rpm when it starts making sense, reving cleanly into the red zone at 11,000 rpm. If you want to make it sound as good as it looks, put an IXIL can on it and get a little extra torque into the bargain. If you are looking for a 125 that feels and rides like a bigger bike, then a Roadsport is well worth considering. When you can get hold of a one a year old example for around £1,000 then it becomes an absolute bargain. In my mind that price reflects the rather ignorant attitude of British buyers thinking that Daelims must be Chinese and made by three Chinese blokes in a small shed with nothing but cheap materials and a couple of hammers. Nothing could be further from the truth. Take advantage while this naivity exists and grab a bargain.

“Daelim Roadsport 125”

Written on: 24/06/2011

Brought Dealim Roadsport as need a geared bike to pass test. Bike is great for a 125 and in large enough so that you don't fell cramped at all (i found it a better seating position than GS500 that i took my test on). Looks great and is bigger than most 125 bike so you look and feel good riding it. Handles well has all the things on it you need like a fuel gauge and temp gauge and gets great mpg. Build quality seems good I have had no problems with it at all. This is an ideal bike for getting you through your test.

“Daelim is a Korean company, apparently something to do...”

Written on: 16/04/2011 by Kimm742 (34 reviews written)

Daelim is a Korean company, apparently something to do with Kia, and the Roadwin R is a modern sports 125 bristling with desirable features. It has a full sports fairing with twin headlamps and digital/LCD displays including clock, temperature and fuel guages, and speedo and trip meters which can be switched beween MPH and KPH. The engine is a liquid-cooled fuel-injected four-stroke single, with electric start. Add in alloy wheels and disc brakes front and rear, and a box-section frame and swing-arm.
It's early days yet, but build quality and fit and finish of parts seems quite high. OK it's a 12bhp learner bike, but it's quite a looker. Fuel consumption is something ridiculous (100+ mpg) so 17 year old son can maintain his street cred without going bankrupt.
I've ridden it myself a couple of times, and so far I can't fault it. And as an added bonus, a local dealer had a deal going which put the bike on the road for under £2,000, a healthy saving over the normal price of around £3,000.

Well, it had to happen- 2 years later he has passed his test and got a bigger bike. When he parted with the Daelim it was in showroom condition, paintwork deep and lustrous and no corrosion anywhere, and mechanically the same as the day he first got it. He didn't do bad on the part exchange price, either. Not a single problem in those 2 years apart from a new speedo cable, easily obtained and half the price of a cable for a Jap bike. No matter what he progresses onto in the future, I will always have very fond memories of the Daelim. Highly recommended.
