i have not been on a bike in about 11 years! (Since i left the UK and moved to the USA) im coming back to the UK and want another 125! i used to have a Gilera DNA 125 and its reliability was something of a marvel! it never ever broke down and just kept on going! rode it from Ware herts up to cherry tree Norfolk and back with no problem at all! and went to Snowdonia in wales from Ware herts too, again no problem at all! cruised there and back at 70mph or little more at times! so i really love the look of the YZFR 125! but! would be be as good as the DNA for the LONG! runs? oh and it was chucking it down with rain pretty much all the way to wales lol!
