OUR THOUGHTS ON THIS BIKE:

Having ridden this bike both on and off the track we can tell you that it is a cracking bike with some real drive once above 8000 rpm. With a top speed of 110-120 mph that easily matches and exceeds most 125s. Although quite expensive for a 125 it is definitely worth the money. the bike handles very well on the road and has quite a good fuel economy. Probably the only bad point about this bike is the rear seat. Who wants a passenger on such a flash looking race bike.

Guaranteed to attract women. (or cops)

Rating:91/100
