I brought this bike as a starter bike as I had my CBT but no licence. The look of the bike was important for me as I was 30 years old and didnt want to be seen on something that resembeled a scooter which this definatly does not. This bike looks fantastic. My husband also rode this bike and said that it was very quick on the uptake which he was surprised about as he is 16 stone and very tall. The bike is a very quick and is extremely good at handling. The bike itself looks like a much larger spots bike and conceals that fact that it only a 125 very well so you dont feel silly riding it. The gears and brakes were really responsive and I felt in command of the bike at all times. The sadle was very comfortable and the design means that you feel moulded to the bike. The dash disply is very neatly laid out and is simple enough that you can read all the relevant info at speed without the dash being overcrowded or being ruined by the designers looking for style over substance. In the time that I owned this bike I clocked up around 8000 miles and had no work done on it at all. It ran as smoothly the day I sold it as the day i brought it and I was very sorry to see it go. For the money I dont believe that there is a better 125 on the market. lastly the fuel economy on this bike was incredible and I was putting about £15 in a month and traveling about 7 miles into work every day. Cant fault it in this day and age.
Summary: a fantastic looking starter or communting bike.
