top speed estimated is 190km/h for R125

top speed proven for new 07 version of RS125 is 186km/h

 

r125 has smaller tyres than RS125 but enough alrdy can change bigger max to front 130 and back 160.

 

 

Salesman or marketing guy must have smoked you pretty good. Don believe everything they tell you.

 

 

 

15ps 125cc 4-stroke would have trouble even hitting 140kph, let alone 190kph. The RS125's meter might read 186kph. After error correction, it would most prob be only 160kph or so.

 

Front 130, rear 160? Unlikely. Even the RS125 stock tyre config is F110 R150.

 

The R125 with it's narrow fork and swingarm... plus the tiny rims, won't be able to fit such tyre sizes. To do so, u have to change rims. And, like I said, the fork and swingarm are too narrow to do so.

hi, i'm a CBR150R rider, just wanna do some correction for ur info on CBR150R. the last time CBR150R group did a petrol run, the newer versions of CBR150R (i believe FZ and newer) can clock 160+ on the CBR150R meter on flat strip. the older versions will be around 140-150+ i believe. :smile:

 

clocking against my R6, the 160+ on the CBR150R was 150+ on my meter. :smile:

 

Comparison with CBR150 and R125 is more suitable

 

Top speed=> CBR abt 150km/h on CBR150r meter with help of slope

Rotational mass quite significant based on its small power output..

handling might feel more stable but loss of some handling and power to pull away will be insufficient due to high rotational mass..

 

top speed of R125 should be ard 120-130km/h max on class 2 bikes meters

so this will roughly give u an estimate of how much power a R125 can produced..

Resolution for 2009, stay healthy, get wealthy, make more friends, ride safely & pass all exams!

cheaper parts yes, sturdy, not really i guess. 2 CBR150R riders went down recently, minor road crashes only, both had to rebuild the entire front end which cost up to more than 1k on repair. :faint:

 

i noticed the R125 is more refined in a few aspects ba, digital speedo, LED lookalike tail, Brembo brakes etc. hope Honda will spruce up the CBR150R very soon too!

 

at 10k OTR, i doubt i will buy it even with it's killer-looks and acclaimed better performance 4 stroker around. a 125 will still be a 125, maybe? my own views lah, dun flame me!! :smile:

 

imho.. its more worth to get cbr150r.. thai bikes seems to be generally build more sturdy and parts are available at a much cheaper rate..

worth it or not.. i just can't say....

 

you can buy a cheap bike.. use it for 1 year..

following year you upgrade to bigger bike..

 

and if you get second hand for both.. it will still be cheaper than one of that.. can keep 2 bikes and still save a bit

 

just imo.. :p

fuel consumption i heard should be around estimated 1litre for 18 to 25km...depending on rider...

RS125 aprilia bike comsume 1litre for 20 to 28km..

 

top speed estimated is 190km/h for R125

top speed proven for new 07 version of RS125 is 186km/h

 

r125 has smaller tyres than RS125 but enough alrdy can change bigger max to front 130 and back 160.

 

R125 exhaust nicer than RS125 and is 4stroke...environment frendly less smoke...but less power on pickup cuz 4 stroke.

 

R125 lose on suspension as they uses telescopic front forks rather than the upsidedown inverted fork that RS125 uses..

 

R125 has smaller disc brakes than RS125.

 

design wise..R125 is better than RS125 and more colours to choose from.

 

just for info...

 

Sounds really strange.. 4 stroke 125cc can top 190km/h ??

 

Mayb i'm noob on this thing but i really really doubt tat it can even hit top speed 130km/h..:sian:

 

Trust me.. Alot of 2B sportsbike will be trying out with it if seen OTR..

Only until den we'll see the actual results..

 

Maybe got to ask some pros in forum or get the first owner of the r125 to try it out for us..

Stock is good...Choose your weapon wisely and enjoy it...you can have all the $$$$ to mod and in the end you can't make full use of it....
