What to Expect

Learner laws mean that some of these 125cc Bantams are still used on the road. Single saddle, rigid rear end and minimal forks make them something of a spine rattler but they can scoot through traffic in a thoroughly annoying manner. Stock engines are reliable (and make nasty noises and smoke when on the way out) but most tweaked, making the piston and rings short-lived. Plunger rear end and crank upgrade on later models.
