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?
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.
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.
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.
