Motorcycle insurance bargains: Derbi GPR125

Motorcycle insurance costs are an important consideration for any bike buyer. That's why MCN is highlighting some of the best cheap-to-insure motorcycles out there. This time it's the Derbi GPR125.                                             

Insurance group: 2
Engine: 124cc 4v 4-stroke
Power: 13bhp
Top speed: 78mph 
Weight: 129kg                    

In terms of bling, the Derbi is the king of the 125s. It has a digital race-look dash that records highest top speed as well as more useful information, upside-down forks, radial calipers and an underslung exhaust. Plus it's only group 4 to insure.      

Back-to-back with other four-stroke 125s the GPR125 is right up there with the quickest (we saw 83mph on the digital dash), and once you get used to having to rev it hard all the time, it’s loads of fun to thrash everywhere. It even holds speed up hills OK

125s have to be built to a price – teenagers usually have a limited budget. The Derbi's chassis may look tricker than it is (the aluminium beam frame is two parts bolted together at the headstock!), but it works OK. The suspension is firm – sometimes too firm over potholes, but it steers and holds a line better than bouncy rival machinery.
