What to Expect

Trail version of the GS which could rumble over rough terrain but most used on the tarmac. Long travel suspension’s useful on rotted town roads but age causes wallowing at speed. Higher centre of gravity makes it less easy on learners than the GS. Same long term problems as the GS but also quick rot rear shock and high level exhaust. The Jap market has the great benefit of a 20hp 200cc version. Opt for the GS unless a really good DR125 turns up.
