    I'm tempted to buy a kup again because... everyone thinks kups are slow.

    They're not. Lol. Quite the opposite.

    Cubs are the best for cheap transport! They're reliable and last forever. Not to mention,they have fantastic fuel consumption!

    Never take the timing before but 2nd gear over 100km/h on 125z meter. If cruising together with spec 3 my meter show 115km/h while spec 3 only 100km/h.

    I do like kups. Nice and small. Some are powerful. In traffic situations definitely that's the only bike u need.

    But what put me off is after long the plastic bits all start to rattle and crack. That is the one thing that I can't stand. Now that I'm on a supermoto. No fairings. Don't miss the plastics rattle anymore.


    Ride safe people!!
    Ride fast..ride safe..don't crash...

    a s4 should be able to do 0-100 in about 6 seconds.

    if a 125z can win a s4 in pick up, it means a 125z can do 0-100 in below 6 secs

    i find it hard to believe, but who knows its possible

    i am not riding a s4 nor a 125z btw.

    because kup can kup corner very fast. I think it is one of the fastest kinds of bikes in small twisty roads like south buona vista. not encouraging illegal racing though. Hope singapore can squeeze in some motorcycle race before the f1 use the tracks.

    win any stock s4 anytime. flat out other bikes in its class too. just that top speed would lose to 2 Strokes sportbikes only.
    Getting your licenses revoked is much more painful than dying.Don't drink and drive.

    Rode kup last time, but don't feel safe when it rains, or when there's a strong crosswind. So my kup was only to get me from pt. A to pt. B. For speed, I rather go get a wider tire bike, at least if I hit a stone during cornering I feel easier to control the bike back.

    They're not. Lol. Quite the opposite.
    With today 2B bikes running as only 4 strokers and less than 15 hp, using the word SLOW is already a consolation for such bikers.

    Those days when the 2B are 2 strokers, the hp is twice or even 3 times as much as it it today.

    The 4 stroke 2b bikers now are basically riding like ' ladies riders' in those hey days. LoL
