Suzuki RV125 VanVan Overview
Produced from 2003 to 2017, this retro styled 124cc machine is ideal for a new rider or fans of smaller engine bikes.
The VanVan 125 looks the part as a small, vintage alternative to a scooter or moped. This bike is often used by race teams to get around the paddock; and it is clear to see why. The pocket sized motorcycle is cool, small and nippy… perfect!
As well as this, it is very comfortable, which may come as a surprise given the size, and is extremely easy to handle. The somewhat basic brakes and suspension do the job required, although can be seen to struggle at times on the open road.
A major plus point of the RV 125 VanVan is the running cost, with cheap insurance and parts, this bike is easy to maintain – as long as journeys are short and sweet.
Priced at £3,149, this motorcycle can be seen as rather costly for such a small bike, although there is certainly a market for such a distinctive retro styled machine.

The large seat looks comfy at first however after longer rides can become uncomfortable but has plenty of room for a pillion.
The bike is built like a tank. Never broken down on me the only faults it has had are minor electrical which were fixed in seconds.
Never had a problem with brakes handles even emergency stops with no effort. However slightly older style drum on rear.
The large rear tyre helps the mono shock suck up the bumps in the road it's very comfortable over any surface even down green lanes. It's surprisingly light for its large appearance and corners great despite the large rear tyre.
While around town it can easily hold the speed limits as soon as you get on to a larger road it can take a while to get to speed and struggles to reach 55. However it's a 125 so have to adjust expectations.
This can run forever on £5 worth of petrol and even if it's your very first bike, with Devitt, it's very easy on the wallet to insure too.
Never failed me
Smooth and forgiving
Not bad for a 125
