Overall Review

Overall this bike is good, however i have had to spend a fair bit of money on it for it to be useable. For example when i first purchased the bike, a week later the throttle cable snapped! fourth week owning it i had to have a new starter motor put in. I also spent some money on a new heavy duty chain as the old one had seized, upon putting the new chain on i found that the gear changes felt flawless i do not know if it was the chain that did it but it certainly made a difference to the overall bikes handling and performance. one thing i would say though is the motorbike needs a lot of TLC (tender loving care) One thing i didn't mention is the strength even though its chinese and built from thin cheap frame it is without a doubt strong. I have crashed once and dropped it twice, i know amatuer but what can i say i have only been riding for about 6 months. each time i have dropped it i have picked it straight back up and it works fine! the resale value however is not brilliant in a year or so i could probably get about £500 if that!

Strengths

This bike for a first time rider is brilliant, with its large fuel tank (13 litres) and good fuel economy for a run around town it to me works. from riding it since february i spend on average 14 pounds every two to three weeks which for a chinese bike is not too bad! another Pro on this motorcycle is the ride comfort, when i was at college i had to ride around 15 miles one way and for the entire journey it was comfy and reasonably smooth.

Weaknesses

This bike does have its Cons for example when riding it at a high speed (50-55mph) it vibrates a lot, the frame is also subject to rust as its built from a cheap metal, and finally its CHINESE!

Overall Review

I ride big bikes, ZRX1200etc however the wife has a YBR125 (08) and there's also a Lexmoto Steet 125 (12)in the garage that was bought for my stepdaughter or son, another stepson has a SYM XS125. So I know how to wield a spanner, having serviced all 3 of the 125's in the recent month I can say there's not a lot of difference. YBR is better but not by much, it's frame paint can be little thin to. I would say the SYM is next and the Lexmoto a close 3rd. Keep on top of oil changes and use WD etc and you should see off the worst of the weather.

Strengths

Cheap and easy to maintain

Weaknesses

Cheapness. Quality not as good as Jap 125's.
