The Derbi Terra Adventure 125 showed its pedigree out in the wilds and handled the terrain perfectly. Great suspension front and rear, fantastic brakes (which stayed sharp despite our heavy abuse) and precise steering all added up to one of the best learner legal rides around. The saddle sits at 815mm but due to its narrow profile actually feels much lower, so riders of less than average height can manage the stylish 121kg bike.
Derbi’s Terra Adventure 125 has a four-stroke, liquid-cooled engine that kicks out a claimed 15hp and should be good for a little over 70mph. The Derbi Terra Adventure 125 may not have loads of power but it loves a handful of throttle and will happily rev to 11,500rpm.
Derbis have long been classier and better quality than most 125s – think Aprilia and you won’t be far wrong – and the Terra Adventure 125 is no different than most. Finish is generally good and, thanks largely to the Minerelli engine, there are noi reported reliability problems yet, either.

The Derbi Terra Adventure 125’s styling is well thought out, perfectly executed and also has a bash plate to protect that vulnerable engine whilst you’re living the dream out in the countryside. So, not only does the Derbi do the job, on or off road but it also looks the part and gives the appearance of a larger capacity bike. Compare and buy parts for the Terra 125 in the MCN Shop.
