This is my first big bike. And after owning several 125s ranging from a CBF125 to an RS125, I simply can't fault it.
I've happily covered 10000 miles since I bought it brand new in March, and it still looks brand new, is still on the original chain, and brake pads.
I've added a few things to it, including a tail tidy, new exhaust (to free up the awesome V-Twin sound)and double bubble screen, and some Avon Storm 2s', now it's perfect to me.
It inspires confidence, and encourages you to play and have fun, the engine pokes you in the direction of working it, but not in a SS600 fashion, and it'll cruise along more than happily, bodding round town in 3rd gear with no effort.
It's been with me threw my first knee down, first stoppie (accidental), and when my license permits it'll do my first track day too. If I can get away with it I'm never selling it and intend to run it around the clock atleast once.
I just can't fault it and it's gonna keep me happy for a very long time :D
