Summary:

Good 1st learner motorcycle

Faults:

Rear brake caliper slider seized due to old rubber boot.

Rear wheel bearing worn due to caliper slider seize.

General Comments:

Good looking bike with a trellis frame and underseat exhaust, good performance for a 125cc 4 stroke, and exhaust sounds good too.

Spare parts other than service parts sometimes hard to come by, especially bodywork, mostly the headlight fairing.

Headlights a bit dim for night riding.

Can have problems with water ingress into the tank via the filler cap; usually shows itself after having used the reserve setting on the fuel tap, and then bike doesn't want to rev.

Easy to work on. The Suzuki engine is so reliable as long as the oil is topped up.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? No
