Gilera Runner ST 125 Bike Overview
The Gilera Runner is an old favourite when it comes to scooters, with a new, updated design giving it a sporty feel. It’s good at handling, too – allowing you to ride through town easily.
In terms of the engine, it seems to get up to speed well, but it isn’t all too exciting. On a motorway you’ll find 65mph is about your limit before it really revs away. However, you do feel safe on this bike. Suspension is OK until you hit a pot-hole, then you might find it gives you a sudden jolt. This is a problem many of these scooters have, though.
This scooter is a practical one to ride, perhaps good as a first-timer bike. If you’re looking for a general run-around bike, this well could be it. It feels a little flimsy in places, but in general the build quality is good and you’ll get some handy features too, like an under seat storage, plus a small rack is fitted to take a topbox if required. The seat is also big enough for two people should you want to take someone along with you (although you might find it struggles a bit with the extra weight!)
