1989 Honda NX125 from United States of America

Summary:

It's very reliable, but slow acceleration

Faults:

It only needed oil changes and spark plugs

General Comments:

The bike is pretty slow at acceleration, the top speed for me was around 60 mph, pretty good on the highway, but it's a bit of a bumpy ride.

1st gear went to 5 mph.

2nd went to 15.

3rd went to around 30 mph to 35 mph.

4th went to 45mph.

5th went to 55 to 60 - 64 mph.

1989 Honda NX125 from United States of America

Summary:

Reliable and Slow

Faults:

Literally nothing.

General Comments:

Slow top-speed, but it would maintain it for miles. Never had anything break on it. Routine maintenance was simple.

The top speed on this bike was 64 mph on the road. When it got hot from running at this speed for so long, it would drop to 57 mph. It was not too happy on the freeway. At 64 mph, it got 86 miles per gallon. I was going to try and put a smaller sprocket on for more top speed, but it probably wouldn't be worth it.

It was not the best off-road. I got stuck in the mud and had to rock it out a couple of times. On the road it did not accelerate very quickly. The best spot was 3rd gear from 35mph to 45mph, that was the most fun. Oil changes and spark plugs were the only maintenance. Had to buy a special spark plug socket for it.

It was a fun commuter and cheap on insurance.
