Suzuki GSX-R125 and GSX-S125 pricing confirmed
The new entry level motorcycles will be priced at £3699 for the GSX-S125 with the sportier GSX-R125 available for £3999.
Both machines are powered by a single cylinder 124.4cc engine that Suzuki claim to have the best power-to-weight ratio in its class.

As well as featuring a Bosch ABS system, they also benefit from a double overhead camshaft (DOHC) design which is rare for a 125, allowing improved airflow at higher engine rpm and more precise valve timing.
GSX-R125 at Intermot
We got our first glimpse of the new machine at last year’s Intermot show. It only took Suzuki 32 years to give us an R 125cc bike.
The GSX-R125 comes with a full LCD dash display that displays a fuel gauge, clock, gear position indicator and an oil change indicator light, featured alongside the usual speedo, odometer and tacho display.
The sporty number also has the benefit of a keyless ignition system too.
Naked is more fun
The GSX-S125 announcement followed at the Milan show later in 2016. It makes perfect sense for Suzuki to offer a naked option to their 125 range, with a slightly more upright and relaxed riding position.
The styling of the machine ties in very well with the other GSX-S family of motorcycles too.
A hire purchase finance deal, with a deposit of £977.86, means that the new GSX-R125 can be ridden away for £75 per month over 48 months, while the GSX-S125 can be bought for £69 per month over the same period with a £925.29 deposit.
With hire purchase, the bike is owned at the end of the agreement term and doesn’t have a final balloon payment that is often associated with PCP deals.
