125cc, yes, you read that right - with a whopping 14.8 brake horsepower

Suzuki Introduces GSX-R125 In Europe

If you don't live in Europe, you're out of luck. Or maybe it IS lucky we won't see these struggling to attain highway speeds.

Cool. How long do you think it will be before SoundWave twin turbos one?

It looks a bit like my old CBR125R, but less gay. Lol.

I had a lot of fun and learnt to ride on my 125. Don't knock it if you haven't tried it and yes, it would happily cruise at 70mph.

My first 2 wheeler was a Honda Elite 150. yes, more upright posture and larger front fairing means more wind drag, but that puppy couldn't exceed 60mph unless the tailwind was strong.
As a learner machine, sure, it'd be perfect to keep throttle control and figure out how to lean.
As a track bike for a limited class, it'd be perfectly stylish and sensible.

For any other purpose, though, I would find it woefully inadequate. I rode a friend's brand new 2006 Ninja 250 from the dealership to his garage while he awaited his license - and I found THAT machine to be hugely disappointing in performance. With half the displacement and brake horsepower of the Ninja 250, I'd be crying - then beating it off the line on my bicycle.

Agreed! about as fast and powerful as Unser Go-carting, but with a LOT MORE CHALLENGE.

My dad has a CBR 250 with a PC and a full exhaust. It's putting a whopping 28 HP. Fun in the tight stuff but as gutless as you would expect. It's all about momentum and keeping the revs up on those little bikes.

I would've killed to have a 125 that looked that good when I was a kid. It's not about the speed when you're just learning. Then again, it'll still be expensive as hell to fix, I bet, lol.

I've been waiting for Zuk to drop something like the Grom or the Kawi Z125 pro but I don't like this one with it being more of a full size bike. I would love it if they dropped something like the Grom and would add one in the stable asap. Now don't get me wrong this things is probably a great learning tool and fun to tool around on but no way could I see myself picking one of these up.

If I could find one of these again:

Oh, absolutely! Avoid the freeways, but otherwise around town... for someone under 18 with little riding experience especially, that would be quite fantastic. Beats the heck out of a moped, that's for sure.
