In my opinion, this is a good first 125, ideal for the daily commute or as a learner bike. It copes with the daily boredom of commuting but still does not fail to thrill when you put your head and open the taps. Its lightweight makes it easy and fun to throw into corners and its suspension and chassis (despite being vary basic) cope with all conditions with ease. It just inspires confidence in all conditions and when you are being a total spanner on it, there is a little bit of understeer to frighten you into easing off. The motor is fairly gutsy for an old 125, developing 12bhp and an easy top end of 75mph on the dual carriageway, so you will be able to hold your own in traffic. Reliability can be an issue if certain areas are neglected (it eats spark plugs like theres no tomorrow) and you can find your self stuck at a set of lights after the motor cuts out. However, take regular care of this bike (this bike is not for the rider who is not confident in basic motorbike mechanics), treat it with the same love and affection you would treat your dog and it will reward you with a long, happy life, full of surprises.
