“Suzuki Rv125 van van”

Written on: 02/08/2014 by Kemp96 (1 review written)

Not the fastest 125 on the road, but very reliable, comfy, durable..... capable of 55mph on the flat, 65 downhill ! Copes with woodland, dirt tracks, sand etc..... chunky tyres ideal for slow traffic riding but can follow road surface imperfections more than other 125s like the ybr, cbr125s etc. Unique looks, half retro roadster, half trials bike. The 125cc engine produces smooth power and has a 6 speed gearbox, driven at commuting speeds 40 to 50mph, you will get between 90 and 100 mpg !… Read Full Review

“Suzuki Vanvan RV125 - a good little 'un”

Written on: 19/10/2012

The Suzuki Vanvan RV125 is slow. Its gear-box has known issues (often an integral spring is lost from the selector mechanism due to incompetent servicing - i.e. the gear-box bolt being mistaken for the sump plug can lead to the loss of a component as oil - and the aforementioned spring - spill into the old oil tray, never to be retrieved simply because it fell out unnoticed). Some have also questioned its ability to resist corrosion (the rear shock absorber is *very* exposed to the elements… Read Full Review

Written on: 03/04/2011 by Smellthecoffeefatboy (2 reviews written)

I have only owned this bike for 2 days now, but what a great little bike this is. Easy to ride, lots of fun, looks cool, i also own a 2008 r1 and 1995 dr350 but i think i will be riding this the most in the summer. This bike screams retro. Maybe the only bike you can ride in shorts and t- shirt… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/10/2012

I have a 2007 van van one week ago after being off a bike since 1967. I totally agree that it does all you said and I don't think I could have chosen a better bike to start riding again.

Written on: 06/06/2010 by Edna M (1 review written)

I only ever rode a schwinn bicycle up till the point where i got fed up spending a third of my wages on public transport and fell in love with the magenta vanvan in my local bike showroom. it's small and confortable for a girl like me but feels a lot safer and more stable than a scooter because of the low seat and big tyres. It is really economical to run, i commute everyday and spend on average £10 a week where i used to waste £50 on train and bus. it's not super fast but i'm a learner so… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/03/2010

A superb bike for the engins size and the coolest looking 125 on the road. The best for commuting and getting around town. Very cheap to run and around 100 mpg.

EVERTHING you need to know from how to fix, modifications and get togethers. Very helpful people on the forum.

Written on: 26/01/2010

what can i say its an amazing 125 iv done 26,000 miles on it. the orignal rv1 (pre 2005) is the better modle due to suzuki removing the 6th gear and 20mph off top speed!! i have the original and its fun fast and comfterble to ride. the standard tyers are not amazing i have upgraded to bridgestone racing tyers. i have reached a top speed of 89 mph i wanted 90 but it rely didnt sound very willing. the bike loves to have the taps opened up and get low on corners due to its stunin corner… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/12/2009

This is my first and only bike. I admit that I love almost everything about her. She can do off-roading to a certain extent, handles really well during commuting and is an absolute pleasure to ride.
The acceleration is fantastic for a small engine, a lot of torque. The only downside is its lack of speed. I agree that this bike is not built for speed, but if the van van had just a little more top-end power then I would stick with it for a long long time (if it could do 70mph instead of 50)… Read Full Review

this is my second van van and i am loving it.
i had dr600, 650, 350, etc, and this small motorcycle
is brilliant, comftable, economic - 40 km/L - go any place, send,

speed.. well maybe beter to go max 90 - 95 km/h - ttoopp ssppeeeedd...
the engine prefer to go in 80 km/h which is "crusing" speed
and the look - handsom - look as the old bikes as he is. old bike… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/09/2009 by swiftian (2 reviews written)

I've owned my 07 plate Suzuki RV125 Van Van for just over a month now and purchased purely to commute on. It had only done 1,400 miles and was in showroom condition. Its a fun bike to ride and certainly turns heads. The 70's retro styling is great and those bike chunky wheels are just brilliant. It's not particularly fast, but as mentioned previously, that's not its purpose! I cannot comment on reliability due to my short ownership, but I have no doubts that it will be troublefree as its… Read Full Review

Paulied's Response to raggerty's Review

Written on: 08/06/2010

Hmm, having done 13000 miles so far on my K9 I still have plenty of tread on both front & back wheel & have taken it enduro riding so the tyres can handle the rough stuff. I have changed front & rear sprockets once so far & upgraded to a HD chain as OST is pants. Excessive tyre & sprocket wear is usually caused by wrong tyre pressures or poor chain adjustment. I would double check those if you are having these kinds of problems. I would say it's your riding style but I thrash mine everywhere so it can't be that ;]

Written on: 27/03/2009

The Suzuki RV125 is a perfect first time bike. Good riding posture ( I'm 6'2''). Fun to ride and I'll probably keep mine even when I pass my test. Durable and forgiving and very robust. Economical too! I feel mine lacks power, but not always a bad thing for a beginner… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/02/2009 by devilshaircut (1 review written)

Soon as i seen this Suzuki RV125 I wanted one there was no other bike I wanted to ride except the van van at beginner level. An experienced biker tried to talk me out of buying the van van as he thought it would be awful handling and looked like something a circus dwarf would ride. I have to say I'm glad I followed my heart on this one, the beauty is in the simplicity , I hate the way other 125s can be gimmicy and try to imitate other larger bikes, the van van is straight up, real, non… Read Full Review
