POCKET ROCKET GIXER

When you’re a raring to go 17-year-old biker all you want is the quickest, coolest and baddest 125cc possible. Suzuki’s certain it’s got just the ticket in its all-new GSX-R125 sports bike, but does it meet the cut?

There’s only so much you can expect irum a 125cc in today’s age. I know it’s no Cagiva Mito, that can crack a tonne in seventh gear, but sitting through the presentation you really do get a feeling that Suzuki has ploughed a load of thought into making the GSX-R a class winner. For starters, the mam bragging point has to be its power; thanks to its DOHC engine that’s been combined with a 32mm big bore throttle body and a bigger, optimised bore x stroke ratio, the claimed 14bhp on tap means the Gixer’s motor makes it the most powerful I25cc sportsbike on the market, gifting the Suzuki a pretty immense measure of class leading acceleration. And i the optimisation doesn’t stop there, with the twin-spar aluminium frame shaving a mahusive 3kg over its predecessor
