Not a bad sporty 125 that does everything you could want a 125 to do with litte hassle. Cheap price means these are a very tempting choice over more expensive, but better Japanese machines like the Honda CBR125. f you're not bothered about the name on the tank, the Lexmoto is a good choice.
The engine's nothing special, and it's certainly not a pleasant sounding thing, but it is a 125cc four-stroke that'll get you moving up to legal speeds in comfort and safety. On our test bike we were unable to get the bike in to neutral with the engine running.
The XTR125 goes round corners perfectly fine, with bumps upsetting the bike due to its lightweight and budget suspension. Of course it's nothing like an Aprilia RS4 or Yamaha YZF-R125, but what did you expect?
Equipment is basic, as you'd expect. You get two wheels, a frame, engine, seat and everything needed to get where you're going in relative comfort and safety. The test bike supplied had an ABS sticker on the fork legs, but there's no ABS.
Our test machine had a mysterious nut rattling around under the seat, a missing end-plate off the chain adjuster and a couple of peeling stickers. These should all be sorted at the factory, and aren't problems you'd expect on new bikes. If it does go wrong, Lexmoto have a very good parts back-up and UK importer.
It's hard to argue with a price tag of just £1099.99, although Lexmoto do have cheaper bikes available.
