OUR THOUGHTS ON THIS BIKE:

Although i have never ridden this bike, it is the one i am looking at getting. It has surperb looks, which are full of aggression, especially in the 2000, and 2001 models. It also has a riding position that causes you have a more heads down position rather than sitting up. Although this bike is not as quick as the Aprilia or the Cagiva, it still does a decent 110 mph, And a reported time of 0-60 in about 5 seconds, which would allow you to beat all other 125's of the line. It is also one bike that is not overly expensive to buy and insure.

There are a few bad points about this bike, Mainly in top gear the power can drop violently in very high revs, causing you to have to drop down a gear or two to correct it. Another problem is that the suspension is quite soft, which is not to everyones liking.

Other than that this is a surperb bike for any learners getting in to sports bikes.

Rating :90/100
