It’s an easy bike to ride; all thanks to the light clutch, easy gear change and simple switchgear. It’s comfy too, with a low seat that gives a decent riding position that wouldn’t discredit a full-size cruiser.
The spoiler that this bike isn’t what it first appears comes with the tiny 125cc single that nestles under the tank, even though it doesn’t look too ridiculous. Being a budget Chinese machine, it’s carb-fed, air-cooled and in a low state of tune, all brought home as soon as you fire it up with its neighbour friendly, whisper-quiet idle.
The quality of the bike looks good. The paint, chrome and welds are of a higher quality than the early crop of Chinese machines. It’s too early to comment on the reliability and durability of the machine but if it does go wrong, Lexmoto have a good parts backup and a UK importer.
The bike is made and targeted at the budget conscious rider. It’s excellent value for money and as it’s a 125, will cost very little to run and insure. The fuel tank holds an impressive 13.5 litres, so given a typical consumption of 100mpg, a 300-mile range looks within reach - all the excuse you need to hit the open road.
Being a budget machine, you wouldn’t expect there to be much in the way of extras. It’s a simple and straightforward, it certainly isn’t a bike with any bells and whistles attached, but for the price you wouldn’t expect it to be.
