Good buy, good fun, get one


Nothing really, just wear and tear on friction parts ie. pads, clutch etc.

General Comments:

The bike in unrestricted form is very quick for a 125. Mine has a dep pipe and YPVS. Off the lights it is a rocket. If you get the clutch and revs correct, you will struggle to keep the front down.

Excellent around town due to the high position.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
