The learner legal 125 that thinks it’s a super sports!

The first thing that strikes you about this 125 is the looks; they’re stylish, eye catching, sharp and bang up to date. They make the bike look like a far bigger capacity machine. Its true size is only given away by the small power plant. The bike really does have super sports dimensions and looks. I parked the bike up on test in a busy touristy town centre and loads of people asked me what the bike was and most were surprised when I told them its was KYMCO 125. They all thought it was a mid range Japanese super sport, I’m certain this will give the bike massive street appeal and road presence.

The bike doesn’t just look big, it is big, easily accommodating my 6ft 3” frame.

This bike is almost over engineered for its somewhat small power plant. Its huge single beam frame is far sturdier than the maximum 12.9bhp power out put requires. This over engineering continues to the large ventilated single discs front and rear, with twin pot calliper and the front and single on the rear. These stop the bike effectively and safely, though we’re not talking about slowing it down from super sport speeds. Claimed top speed is 65 mph and it only weighs a mere 141 kg, so the brakes are not being over stretched.

The super sports styling and high quality continues throughout this machine, from the full aerodynamic fairing, the raked screen, the twin headlights, white glass indicators, sculpted tank to the semi-prone riding position, all adding to the super sports illusion.

Particularly eye catching is the instrumentation, the KR Sports has white faced rev counter with red and black figuring, which makes them very clear to read, additionally the bike also has a big clear digital speedo, digital fuel gauge, odometer and clock.

Super sports ride?

The KR Sports has hydraulic forks up front and rear adjustable monoshock (with eye catching red spring) and sits on painted 5 spoke alloy wheels which are shod with Cheng Shin tyres. Within the limits of the power available this 125 has razor sharp handling with a taut and firm ride. The Cheng Shin tyres for the most part provide excellent grip even on gravel strewn country back roads, not a surface recommended to ride on generally. The light weight means the KR Sports can be flicked through corners, like the super sport bike it pretends to be.

This lightness of action is complemented by the light action clutch and sweet 5 speed gearbox, both of which enabled rapid and smooth gear changing; though, out on the open road it was quickly up through the box to fifth to make the most of the available speed.

Disappointingly the KR Sport only produces 12.9bhp at 10,000 RPM from its free revving single air/oil cooled engine. This does somewhat blunt the ultimate performance in that the bike tops out at 65mph, but for many learners this will be more then fast enough. The engine can be come a little buzzy as revs approach the red line but for the most part it’s fairly smooth.

Riding twisty roads is where the KR Sport really excels. Its lightness and good handling enables quick changes of direction and spirited cornering to be easily achieved, which make one easily forget the bike’s modest power output.

Because of the bikes large dimensions it’s surprisingly comfortable, even with the semi prone riding position. It was really only the squab seat which – after a couple of hours riding – lacked a little in the support department. But it’s doubtful this sort of bike will be used for touring.

Top Choice

The KR Sports is very easy to ride, handles well, has good brakes and light controls making it an ideal first learner legal machine. It’s hard to fault the KR Sport and it should give the more firmly established Japanese choices a really serious challenge.

It should be cheap to run as well. Whilst I didn’t have the KR Sport on test long enough to run conclusive mpg checks, it was very frugal on fuel. KMYCO UK say the bike should average 85mpg. The bike has a 6,000 KM or six month service interval with typical service costs* being £65 for an interim and £100 for an annual service Combined with a competitive suggested retail price** of £2,399 which includes a two year unlimited mileage warranty.

Kymco Quannon 125

If commuting is about keeping things as simple as possible, then the fully faired Kymco Quannon 125 doesn't leave many questions unanswered.

The compact Taiwanese machine is as down-to-earth as they come, melding an air and oil-cooled single-cylinder 125cc four-stroke engine with a steel twin-spar frame, and tracking on 'big bike' 17-inch rubber with disc brakes at both ends. Dry weight is 139kg.

That's not an intimidating cocktail in anyone's language, but like most bikes in this small-bore single-cylinder class the narrative is more about what the bike offers for learners, rather than what it lacks.

The Quannon 125, which was actually first released way back in 1997 as a derivative of another pushrod engine in the Kymco stable (the Quannon has an overhead camshaft), has a few direct competitors in the small-bore 'sportsbike' segment, primarily in the form of the Honda CBR125RW ($4990) and the higher-spec Yamaha YZF-R125 ($6999), which are both fuel injected.

But that could be about to change, as there is a strong possibility Kymco Australia & New Zealand could be bringing in an updated 150cc fuel injected version of the Quannon, either late this year or early in 2011. We'll certainly keep you updated on that one.

But back to more market-related chatter for one minute. The 250cc roadbike class, which was starting to become a stale wasteland about five or six years ago, is now a vibrant segment once again, thanks to the likes of Hyosung, Kymco, Kawasaki, Megelli and Sachs.

Let's not forget the Kawasaki Ninja 250R was the biggest selling roadbike - across the board - in Australia last year, confirming that novice riders certainly haven't abandoned quarter-litre machines under the wide-ranging LAMS system.

The Quannon 125 may not have the power of a Ninja but it still tracks along at a respectable pace - certainly enough to meld into highway traffic once it's up to speed.

With just 13hp and 9.8Nm to work with, taking off is not really a time to be complacent on the Quannon. In fact, exacting standards in clutch and throttle control have to be followed to get off the line with some purpose - otherwise it can leave some nerves jangling.

Perhaps a shorter first gear is the answer, which has apparently been addressed on a naked version of the Quannon, which will go sale in Australia later this year.

The nakedbike also has an aluminium frame, a beefier fork and a bigger fuel capacity.

Once blast off has occurred on the "Quantock" (our nickname for the Quannon, in deference to Australian comedian Rod Quantock), it's all about going along for the ride.

Fourth gear is probably the upper limit for city work, which leaves just a little bit of top-up acceleration if it's called for.

I only used fifth gear for a bit of highway work, where the Quannon sits on about 95km/h without a worry in the world.

While the horsepower certainly isn't overwhelming, beginners should enjoy phenomenal fuel efficiency from the four-valve engine. With the ample 13.5lt tank - which makes Honda's 18lt in its new VFR1200F sportstourer sound positively woeful - the Quannon should be good for at around 400km between fuel stops.

The bike's steel frame is mated to a non-adjustable 33mm telescopic fork and monoshock, which handle all but the biggest bumps with composure.

And the 17-inch wheels make sure it doesn't lose out to machines like the Ninja in the comparison stakes.

Elsewhere, the story is one of getting the job done: the cable-actuated clutch is light 'n' easy to use, the mirrors are functional, and the 800mm seat height doesn't discriminate against too many people. And the seat is fine for short-hauls, which is the Quannon's raison d'être.

The instrument cluster is a mix of analogue (tacho) and digital (speedo), which is functional and not rendered redundant by sun glare or an awkward pitch.

At $3590, the Quannon 125 is not going to wreak havoc with finances, and for that a well-made and honest commuter will be at your disposal. For beginners, the template shouldn't be much more complex than that.
