Paton S1 (2014-current)

£19,074

649cc, 72bhp, 140mph, Insurance group

Meet Paton’s all new, hand built S1, the road going version of their Lightweight TT bike. The mix of old and new works together very well and from two feet away it’s a stunning throwback. But after the initial admiration you start to notice a few niggles and we were expecting a little more for the price.

Aprilia SR Max 125 (2011-2013)

£2,171

124cc, 15bhp, 65mph, Insurance group

The SR Max 125 is a nice little city scooter, with bags of weather protection and comfort for longer journeys. Struggles at speeds above 40mph, but at town speeds it's perfectly adequate. Handling is spot on. If you want an all year round scoot with good wether protection the SR Max 125 is a great choice.

Harley-Davidson FLS Softail Slim (2012-current)

£14,795

1690cc, 110bhp, 112mph, Insurance group 15

The Slim is essentially a standard Softail (ie a big twin with hidden rear shocks for that ‘hardtail’ look) but given (as seems to be repeatedly fashionable with cruisers from all manufacturers at the moment) the minimalist, ‘50s ‘bobber’/hot rod look. The difference here, though, is the ‘Slim’ bit. Harley’s view was that its existing Softails had become ever bigger ...

Vespa GTS125 (2007-current)

£3,549

124cc, 15bhp, 65mph, Insurance group 4

You get all the style and cool of an original Vespa, wrapped up in a package with modern reliability and running gear. If you're commute is primarily on busy city roads the engine and handling are spot on. But the GTS struggles out on the open road.

Piaggio MP3 Yourban 125 (2011-current)

£4,820

124cc, 15bhp, 70mph, Insurance group

The Yourban 125 is certainly not cheap, but you can't put a price on confidenc, which is exactly what the extra front wheel gives. The 300cc version is less than £1000 more expensive, has more power and can be ridden on a car licence.

Kymco KR Sport 125 (2010-current)

£2,599

124cc, 13bhp, 68mph, Insurance group

A very decent sporty 125 with great equipment and good handling that’s let down by an inflated price tag. Those that need a cheap runaround will opt for a Chinese-made budget equivalent, while performance obsessed young ‘uns will go for the pricier CBR125R or a YZF-R125. If you find yourself in possession of a KR Sport or can nab a ...

Suzuki Burgman 125 (2002-2012)

£3,465

125cc, 12bhp, 65mph, Insurance group 5

If you want the comfort and practicality of a maxi-scooter but you’re limited to 125cc, the well-spec’d Burgman is a safe choice. It’s not quite up to a motorway commute, but for city use it’s a classy ride with more luggage space than you’ll know what to do with.

Gilera Fuoco 500ie (2007-current)

£5,695

493cc, 39bhp, 90mph, Insurance group 9

There are motorcyclists out there who will cheerfully denounce the Fuoco as a car with a wheel missing. Ok so the Fuoco does have three wheels but in every other way it is a bike; it leans, stoppies has handlebars and so on. More to the point it is fun, practical and safe. No, seriously it is. MCN originally tested ...

Derbi GP-1 250 Racing (2006-current)

£2,999

249cc, 22bhp, 82mph, Insurance group

When you hear the spec of the Derbi GP1 250 Racing scooter it’s easier to think of a proper motorcycle rather than a funky-looking twist-and-go scooter. It’s got radial brakes, earlier versions had a single rear shock and it even has a twin-spar aluminium chassis too. This is about as cool-looking as it gets in the 250cc scooter market.

Derbi GP-1 125 Racing (2006-current)

£2,495

124cc, 14bhp, 65mph, Insurance group

This is the middle capacity in the GP-1 Derbi range and when you hear the spec of the Derbi GP1 125 Racing scooter it’s easier to think of a proper motorcycle rather than a funky-looking twist-and-go scooter. It’s got radial brakes, earlier versions had a single rear shock and it even has a twin-spar aluminium chassis too.
