Suzuki GS 125 Overview
Originally launched by Suzuki back in the 1980’s, the GS 125 was a firm favourite for many years. It’s seen its fair share of updates over the last twenty odd years until its ultimate retirement back in the early 2000s.
Older models of the GS 125 are now classed as a classic bike, you might see a higher demand for those models. Although the Suzuki GS125 wasn’t the most fanciest looking machine when it first came out, it’s was reliable – and that says a lot!
It was designed to provide basic transportation for any biker, the 125cc made it to cheap to run and easy to maintain. Fitted with basic suspension, cheap skinny tyres and a decent centre stand – it’s everything you could need a run around little bike.

The comfort and styling of the bike definitely appeal to me. Cheap running cost as well.
I'd improve the power slightly but given it's a 125, it is expected anyways.
Good position and very comfortable. Seat is great but might not work for taller riders.
No real problems just make sure it is loved and treated. The most I had to do with mine is top up the oil and and adjust the chain - like with every bike.
Braking is very good. The front brake is extremely effective and the rear brake does its job. No ABS though so be sure not to skid.
Rides very well given the year of manufacture. Suspension is smooth and brakes are surprisingly very good and smooth.
Excellent for going around town and even down countryside lanes. Accelerates fairly well as well but you won't be going any higher than 60mph unless the wind is on your back and your going downhill.
Costing me £10.00 everytime to get a full tank and that lasts me for around 150-200 miles. Maintenance costs are extremely low as well but spare parts can be a hassle to find.
Speed and handling.
As it is an older bike it doesn't go too fast and wear and tear.
Good brakes back one slightly worn.
Not very powerful and struggles with speed.
Not too expensive and only £10 fuel for a whole tank.
