Here’s a review. I’d say there’s definitely better 125s out there. You for sure want at least a front disc. Drums front and rear? That’s just cheeky!

OK, so I’m sitting in my car on the M3, stationary (again). This time it takes 3 hours before the motorway is cleared and I can continue my daily commute to work. Meanwhile, bikes are whizzing down the space between the cars never to be seen again.
While I’m there, I work out that it’s taking longer and longer to get to work each morning. It’s up to about 90 minutes each way, each day. It used to take 60 minutes and if you do get an especially clear day then the journey from Acton to Basingstoke can be done in an hour.
Thinking about the bikes zooming past, they aren’t affected by the traffic, they’ll be able to do the trip in an hour. So, an hour saved each working day, that’s what, about 230 hours a year. Ok so how far does 230 hours get me. I sleep 8 hours a day so 16 waking hours, that’s 14 days per year. Lets say I work till 65, i’m 29 so another 36 years, that’s 504 days! Thats a year and 4 months! A year and 4 months of my life spent sitting in traffic! F*ck me!
I’ll be f*cked if i’m spending a year in traffic. That weekend I go round the various bike shops I’ve looked up. My journey is 45 miles each way, 450 miles a week. I need something reliable, with warranty. I like the Suzuki GN 125, until I come across the Sym Wolf 125. Electric starter and a fuel gauge! It was also 800 quid cheaper than the competition at
