First ride of the Suzuki GSX-R125 incoming

Published: 26 August 2017

We’ll be riding Suzuki’s hotly-anticipated GSX-R125 at Silverstone’s Stowe Circuit at its European launch next week.

The bike uses a 124.4cc single cylinder engine producing 14.8bhp and tips the scales at just 134kg, giving the baby GSX-R a claimed best power-to-weight ratio of any 125cc in the A1 sportsbike class.


This should help the bike to launch and steer easily, which is important when you’re only 17 and limited to a 125cc machine.

Away from performance, the £3999 (launch price) L-plate compliant Suzuki comes with keyless ignition and a full LCD dash, which is sprinkled with useful touches such as a fuel gauge and gear position indicator. Suzuki also boast a claimed MPG figure of 122.82.

Check back on MCN’s social media channels on Wednesday to discover our first thoughts of the bike and read the full report in next week’s MCN.
