      Great first bike especially for thoose still on L's

      This bike is the ideal learners bike, it has a 125cc engine which means it can be ridden on a cbt, this is great as the Hyosung GT125R shares the same frame as it's sister models the GT250R and the GT650R so whilst it looks like large bike and sound's like a large bike it isn't,

      there is a lot of miss understanding when it comes to hyosungs the first is that they are Chinese and unfortunately receive the bad publicity and misunderstanding that comes with other Chinese bikes. However they are not Chinese they are designed and manufactured in Korea (the same place hyundi's are made).

      I ride the red/black model and i have owned her for just over a year and apart from the usual expenses (i.e fuel, oil filter, brake pads and other generic service parts) i have not had to spend out a great deal on her, i have however done a few tweaks (changed exhaust upgraded brake pads). i bought her 2 years old with 4000 miles on the clock i have since added another 4500 miles to her i paid just under £2k and she was in show room condition with only on minor nip in the paint work

      the bike looks great and stylish and packs quite a bit of a punch for a 125 the most i have got out of her was 74mph on a clear day, the bike has a forward leaning riding position, so you are very streamlined on your journey,

      As with all things there are some minor faults and drawbacks the main fault is the stock tyres they do not have the best grip available despite there width, and parts are not the easiest to come by i usually do a quick google search and find them but most take around a week to deliver,

      there is a really strong community attached to these machines with korider being an international owners club and a uk owners club and several +other localised owners clubs which all arrange regular meet up to show off and discuss the bikes. I myself am a member of korider, ukhyo owners club and the london hyosung owners club,

      A great first bike for anyone
