Reliability aside, Chinese motorcycle manufacturer is good in one thing, developing an affordable small displacement bike for new riders.
That is exactly what Lexmoto (another Chinese motorcycle brand) is doing in the UK as they recently launched the all-new LXS 125 for the European market.
LXS 125 is a fully faired motorcycle that features the latest design and technology and is priced at EUR2,499 (RM12,366).
What you get are an excellent 10L fuel tank, full-LED lighting and a fully digital instrument.
Surprisingly, the LXS 125 also comes with (a rather unappealing) under-tail exhaust, which we think could have been designed better.
Despite powered by a small 125cc single-cylinder, water-cooled engine, it still churns out a healthy 13.6hp @ 8,750rpm and can achieve a top speed of 110kmph.
Suspension is handled by a telescopic fork at the front and a single shock absorber at the rear, while braking is done by a dual petal disc (front) and a single disc at the rear.
