Suzuki GP 125



Suzuki the DR-Z125 as the machine that join beginners through accommodation period out on the bumps. As buys motorcycles to use them for a short period, the new project had to great characteristics in order to a more capable rider initiating him in the world of motorcycles and Today we are facing the 2008 and this makes us believe it did it in style.


First in 2002, Suzuki DR-Z125 was out to the off-road experts of today and claims it did its job properly, as expected. to deal with a bulletproof bike right from the the engineers from Suzuki they got rid of the task of renewing and this bike’s 124cc SOHC 2-valve, air cooled, but brought good news for the DR-Z125 riders which now had the to benefit of the bike’s brand new Discharge Ignition (CDI)

The rest of the plans included upgrades destined to attract with variety and beauty so brings, apart from the blue color option for the The last mentioned was to be replaced black a year later and for 2008 also so yellow and are the colors available for the 2008


The key class that is aiming to dominate is very by Yamaha TT-R125E, the same bike like the TT-R125L with smaller wheels for a seat height. The miracle of electric starting couldn’t bee from the battle so Yamaha, as the features CDI which can quickly a future rider towards o a motorcycle.

I could also Honda CRF100F and Kawasaki as competitors of the model I am reviewing but their abilities, the cylinder tends to position them in a of their own, apart the models offered by Suzuki and


Suzuki designed the to look and to handle like a As “handling” goes in my next of the review, I will now discuss the way motorcycle was created in order to good. Normally, I would say the tall front fender and wheel give the tone of the appearance of the bodywork and it is true: The fender shows us the way to the side fuel tank, seat, plastic cover and the even rear fender but this features something special it comes to looks.

For 2008, DR-Z125 presents aggressive new that makes it stylistic of the championship-winning RM-Z machines


As I was heading to encounter the of my test drive for the review, I was that I have the occasion to the machine that marks the in motocross because until now I only manage to get to the bottom of and not the other way.

Got my helmet, my gloves and a single to the DR-Z125 made jump on it. Once on the bike I felt I was up to the challenge and this motocrosser disappoint in any way (well, at least if you that it was created for beginners) and it didn’t as I have to admit I expected.

The bike is not that but having a bit of experience, you can really it to the max and feel it as it gives the best out of its cylinder engine. I enjoy the which is tuned for strong rpm power by carefully selecting the of the intake system and exhaust and by using a MIKUNI VM20SS that contributes to better response. This allows opening of the throttle after a corner preceded of a series of

Doesn’t this sound the definition of something? Oh, motocross!

But for the to be complete, the bike has to feature brakes (front and rear and comfortable suspension (telescopic, oil front and link-type, oil-damped which I have to say that it does.

In motocross, a strong-pulling which enjoys revs always end up in appreciation and the DR-Z’s no exception.


The off-road that will initiate the adrenaline junkies in the sport with a six month limited and a retail price of no more or than $2,399. For the money, performance and maneuverability won’t be a of worry as the bike also stylish look in order to customers and it does it big time!

The already reliable package with significant visual and the technical features that it desired, ridden and enjoyed by and teenagers all over the world. It have been a shame to put an end to the story.
