Motron's Nomad 125 is the brand's 13th bike in just over a year

Motron has launched the Nomad 125 naked, with 13 horsepower, a 280-mile range, and the almost industry-standard trio of colour options.

THE Motron Nomad 125 is the first entry of the brand - owned by the Austrian KSR group - in the naked sector as it continues to expand its roster. 

Motron was launched itself by KSR last year, already the brand had 12 bikes in its roster between combustion motorcycles, scooters, and electrics. The Nomad 125 takes that total to 13, as the new marque sticks to its low-to-mid-capacity normality.

Le Repaire des Motards reports that the Nomad 125 features Euro5-certified, liquid-cooled, 124.8cc single-cylinder motor, which has its 12.9 horsepower transferred to the rear wheel by a six-speed gearbox. The engine also produces 10.5Nm of torque at 7,000rpm, and the 2.7 litres per 100km fuel consumption statistic ensures a range of 450km (280 miles) from its 13-litre tank.

On the chassis side, the Nomad 125 makes use of inverted telescopic front forks, and a single, central rear shock. The 17-inch wheels both front and back are fitted with 100/80 and 140/70 tyres, respectively, while the new Motron is stopped by a 265mm front disc, a 240mm rear, which also feature CBS.

The Nomad also features aggressive styling that is somewhat reminiscent of a smaller Yamaha MT (or maybe that is just the author’s simplicity talking) and features a single headlight at the front. 

While the shape of the bike is aggressive and quite interesting, the colour range is more limited. Only black, white and grey are available for the Nomad 125, which is priced at €3,499, or just under £3,000. Not that the price in GBP matters, though, since there are no Motron dealers in the UK.
