Great Learners Bike!

AdvantagesEconomy, 4 Stroke Induction 'Roar!', Cheap to run, easy to maintain, its a bike!

DisadvantagesA little too slow on dual carriage ways, Can be overpriced, Poor wet handling

"The Yamaha SR125 has received a lot of stick from some people, while a lot of praise from others, during this review i will attempt to give as unbiassed an opinion as i can on this bike, having owned mine for around a year and covering over 10,000 miles i feel that i am fairly qualified to give a good review. I purchased my bike back in august 2006 when i needed something not to expensive to get me to work, i had yet to pass my driving test and ..." Read review

Queasy Rider

Advantageseasy to ride, cheap to run, comfy about town

Disadvantagestotal lack of power, dodgy cruiser styling

"My experience with the Yamaha SR125 took place a few years ago when I was sitting my bike test. Under current regulations, after completing a CBT course, at 17 years old you can take a test on a 125cc bike restricted to 12bhp after which you can ride any bike as long as it is restricted to 33 bhp, and after 2 years you may ride any bike you wish. At the riding school there were two fleets of 125s, the Honda CG125 and the Yamaha SR125. Being a bit ..." Read review

Yamaha SR125

AdvantagesComforable, light on fuel, easy to repair

DisadvantagesSluggish on cornering

"The Yamaha SR125 is a small, custom-style bike. Being 5'3", it was a good choice for my first bike. It's reliable and easy to ride. Over the 5 years that I owned one, all I needed to do was give it an annual service, apart from topping up the oil and replacing the headlight bulb. The bulb needed replacing, on average, about once a year. It uses the same 12v type as a scooter so there was no lack of supply. ( Scooter shops seemed to offer it cheaper ..." Read review

The easiest way into biking!

AdvantagesSimple, easy, reliable and fun

Disadvantageslacks a bit of power

"For most new bikers on the roads, the SR125 was possibly the first bike they rode, as it's used a lot in CBT training. I am a motorbike instructor with a school that uses the SR125, and I have nothing but praise for them! A very simple, cruiser/mini harley styled machine with a single cylinder, 4-stroke engine. Over the years, the SR has evolved, with tiny touches such as clocks updates and so on, but has essentially remained a 'get on and go' ..." Read review

Great First bike

AdvantagesMPG, Easy Handling

DisadvantagesSlow Speed, Styling

"Bought a cheap 1994 reg SR for £475, 26K on the clock. Perfect for learning & gaining confidence for the test. Certainly not the fastest bike you'll ever ride - struggles to mid 50's (but quite pokey at 0 - 25 mph) Nice & comfortable, good for short people as the seat is pretty low. All the controls are easy to reach with gloves & the minimalist speedo unit is ok - wish it had a fuel gauge though. Holds itself quite well at slow speeds, ..." Read review

Perfect learner bike!

AdvantagesPerfect learner bike!

DisadvantagesNot very much power

"I bought one of these bike at the age of 17, ready to lean on and go for my bike test. This bike without and doubt is one of the easiest 125cc motorbikes to ride with a low seat height and very comfortable rider position. The bike is not the most powerfull 125cc, but as a first bike power is your last need! This bike sailed me through my test and now i have a big bike! I think this bike is perfect for a lady or a person of smaller build. My own bike ..." Read review

EVERLASTING BIKE

AdvantagesDurability, Comfort, Engine..soo much

DisadvantagesCan't Think of Any

"I bought this bike second hand just about 3 months ago. It is a 1991 model and Still running beautifuly. The speed goes upto 60-65 and this is on a flat road, but the pick up on it is very good and has a decent amount of power for a 125cc engine. I have drum brakes on mine, they aren't as sharp as hydrolic disc brakes but that's mayb because i go much faster on this than i did on my 50cc Derbi Senda. The seat is really comfortable and it has ..." Read review
