125 for my test?


Recommended Posts

hey , i'm 17 , passed my theory and putting in for mod 1 , so afterwards i can ride a 250 for 2 years. But when it comes to buying a 125 ,, i have my eye on the 93 Suzuki RG125, i just wondered if this fits under all the requirements and would be good to go for on my test. If not , what would be a nice sporty , 125 thatd be well suited for slalems etc. thanks again

If i remember correctly, the RG125 is a 2 stroke and can be troublesome for you in two ways;


It might not be restricted (as most aren't) and therefore won't be learner legal.


Its a 2 stroke. It will break. It will need to be treated VERY carefully and nicely. And it will need regular maintenance.

250? :scratch: When you pass you can ride any cc but you need to restrict power to 33bhp for 2 years... Out of "sporty" 125s the best one would be Honda CBR125 as it have most upright riding position. Ones like YZF-R125, Derbi GPR125 are also not too bad but you would notice the difference in slalom and u-turn. If you want to get 125 only to do your tests then get the cheapest thing you can find (but not chinese) Suzuki EN125, Honda CG125, Yamaha YBR125 or even better - hire it from school and save money for bigger bike :thumb:
