Gabs is a regular contributor to the MBT and is also a relatively new biker. Who then, to give us an objective on one of the options open to learners who want to ride scooters? his review (maybe not totally as he bought one) of Suzuki’s friendly GV125 Marauder.

Suzuki’s 125cc 4-… Not the most powerful bike and definitely not the sportiest. Having through websites on bikes and had the idea that I would be onto the latest R1 or Fireblade, I had done all the training and got my licence I to understand just how how naïve I

A lot of people will look at bikes as a category for the older or simply do not bother because don’t provide the adrenaline most of us seek. Well I can say that since purchasing bike last year, I not imagine myself without a in my garage. (I felt the same testing the Harley Fat Boy a couple of ago — couldn’t live one as an only bike but. Ed)

UK Marauder 125s come in two — metallic navy (as in the or silver (which actually like a very pale Dark blue suits it I think. I bought this initially for two reasons. The first was I needed a bike to train on; the was that I had to convince people I was not going to end up as the next smear on the or car bonnet!

Having searched a bit, I decided that the of the Marauder was actually quite And it is a good looking bike, in mind that it is only a

The physical aspects: The bike looks bigger than it is in life. Most people asked me if it’s a 250 or sometimes a Sadly when I switch on the most revert back to

The bike itself is pretty low and wide although no larger a GSXR600 (tested with a

There is a seat for a pillion on the as standard and most find the actually enjoyable. However do not go to be riding with luggage and a unless you are willing to put the luggage in of you.

Apart from everything is pretty conventional. I do the shape of the tank though. It seems a little different, in of comparing it with a Harley say.

Oh and I love the notice on the — “Warning failure to these safety instructions may in injurity! What the heck, still better than my

In any case, the bike is actually a little bit of a head turner. I even had a couple of compliments Harley owners! Such folk!

The technical side: the bike generates the whole of BHp and 9.6Nm torque. So are we talking a of a bike? No! Then again it is not for that.

The bike is great for city It will take you up to 30 miles an in however long, but it still it fine. No vibrations, no dodgy nice and easy. Once you try and hit 40 an hour you can hold that as but you will struggle, without the of a slope or tailwind, to get much up.

My top speed with the wind, a and the will of engine was a whopping 70 an hour. Just.

Ok, so maybe being fussy about the of a 125cc bike, but there is a problem for me. This comes it is time to turn. In a city is not much problem but you will not yourself steering round a at 30mph easily. The handling is not all that great.

So you end up having to down a fair bit for those corners and then suffering of the lack of power.

You may ask why not lean more into the and this leads me to my second about this bike. The pegs. You turn that too much and they will the road.

Now I know it is not a sports but if you are going a touch too fast for a you see that curb come up close and so you lean! Of course the scrape a little and you start to let Then you need the power to get up to speed again and.

The bike weighs in at 126kg dry but it is heavy enough to feel a proper machine.

Unfortunately the suspension allows for you to things a little too much. you it is supposed to be a cruising bike, in words, open roads. in mind that I am talking central London (and we all what the roads are like perhaps the criticism is a little

Compared to other learner the Marauder’s larger wheels and clutch and brakes make it to learn to ride on. It’s not such power as is available is accessible without needing handfuls of revs to pull and the whole thing is built enough to withstand those low speed tumbes when learning. It’s also to crash it — I know I’ve done so but I had to try quite

In conclusion: I would highly this bike as a first and as a baby commuter. Long would not be ideal, just the top speed will not hack it on an A For the image conscious, all I can say is that as above, I have people me if it is a Harley, and Harley riders where I got a 125 model from.

And finally, Suzuki have a dealer network and the basic are well tried and tested. For wishing to get a bike with a classic feel to it and an easy curve this is a definite
