I have use of one of these at the moment, not really my choice of bike at all, but I gotta say, I really like this thing
It's a 4 stroke 125cc, 2010 model so it's the smallest engine I have ever seen that is injected, that made me smile - something to do with
emission's I suppose, it's a great little bike, nothing very special at all but it is reliable as anything, it's a minimum of 100 miles to a gallon
it will do 70mph unless your heading into a strong head wind, then maybe 65. It is comfortable but surprisingly precise to handle (of course helped
by the fact it don't weigh much and the breaks are very good) - in fact the front end took a little getting used to, sharp breaks and soft forks and
not a heavy bike, I worried about the first time I'd have to pull the bike to a stop in the wet greasy road type situation... Well I have seriously
tested that out, that front tyre never locked one bit even when uncomfortable banked over! (I love small bikes, I am very hard on them when I push it)
- the control over the front end is very acceptable once you feel it in.
This bike new is about £2,500, total bargain, it does exactly what it should do - I reckon this thing would be a doddle to maintain, it would be
excellent for a city commute to and from work of something like up to 30 miles each way, it's a very respectable little bike.
And no, I do not work for Yamaha, I just needed a bike and this thing happened to tick all the boxes
