VSR 125I CBS (EURO IV)

If you want a stylish, economical and reliable ride for your daily commute, then take a look at KYMCO’s new fuel-injected VSR 125i Naked Sports motorcycle.



The first thing that stands out on the VSR 125i is the bike’s sharp & modern styling, and it’s this edgy ‘street bike’ that makes it a popular choice for younger riders looking for an alternative to the traditional style of learner-legal commuter bike.



Powered by KYMCO’s ultra-efficient 4-stroke air cooled OHC 125cc fuel-injected engine, the VSR is also impressively cheap to run, making it one of the most affordable 125 commuter bikes on the market today. With a comfortable top speed of 65mph, the VSR can achieve well in excess of 100 miles per gallon. That means based on average petrol prices, £10 worth of fuel could, in theory, cover more than 160 miles.



Not forgetting you can ride a 125 on L-plates, the VSR is not only a stylish proposition for young learners, it’s also a very affordable one for more mature riders too.



The Euro-4 compliant VSR 125 is available to order in three exciting colours – Matt Blue, Flame Orange and Bright Green Metallic, with a 2-year unlimited-mileage manufacturer’s warranty......

​You would need to have a CBT one-two day course. It's over 50cc and so not eligible for older drivers to use on their existing licence.
This is RRP. There's no deal here
For this kind of money, I'd go for a Honda CB125F a much better bike. On the road price is £2700 but shop around and you will get a better deal especially for cash.

In your opinion the Honda is a 'much better' bike. In my opinion it is not.

In my opinion the Honda is a far better option. Better bike, better resale value.

This is all about opinions, not real research. Horses for courses. The Kymco will suit some, the Honda will suit others. I have owned several 125 bikes, including two Honda 125, and a Kymco 125. This particular Kymco, in my opinion, looks a much cooler bike, but again it is all about opinions. Many people buy a small bike like this as their first bike, and generally looks can be a deciding factor. Other buy on the perceived better reliability of Honda.
is this not the normal price though? ?
Better than a CG125 as they aren't built like most Hondas and at least this has some big bike features so you don't look like a learner or pizza delivery rider. However the sensible money is on a nearly new.125 Honda Varadero instead
Just because a price is the RRP, it doesn't detract it from it being a deal.
Not sure why this is hot. This crappy brand at good brand money.

If you want a cheap bike, get a Sinnis. I picked up a Sinnis Max II for £1k brand new, including the first service and the same 2 year warranty. Hasn't missed a beat.

The "lack of deal" is that for £200 more (or about the same if you haggle) you could have a brand new Honda...

Given that many will ditch their 125 quite quickly after gaining road experience, surely buying one with the best possible resale value (CBF125/YBR125 etc.) is the smart move?

Resale value on 125s are pretty high across the board as demand is high. I know because I've been trying to bag a cheap 125 bike/scooter for commuting on for a while now and prices are crazy. Ten year old 125cc scooters are going for the same price as 600cc bikes!

Interesting thanks for clarifying!

125s generally are very ‘overpriced’ because they know new entrants to the market will have to pay it I guess!

The other thing is that loads of young people are getting suckered into the deliveroo etc **** so there is demand for bikes that can be ridden without needing a proper test.

Kymco isnt a crappy brand, they used to make bikes for honda and were partners with honda for over 50 years before they brke away to make their own stuff and they are noted by those who actually know what they are talking about as only a notch below the japanese bikes and are certainly a cut above the current generation of chinese bikes by the lieks of sinnis and lexmoto which of course arent too bad but still suffer in the electrics area.

The Varadero is a great 125 I have one sat in my garage. Just never get around to using it. It has the look and riding height of a big bike, that's why they are so popular.
ive had Honda cg cm and cb 125s over the years but only as winter hacks. as soon as id passed my full bike licence I traded in fir a biggun. only lost a little in the p/x. in the learner class I found the 125s handy commuters in winter when the big bike was laid up. I miss the RXS100 I had. so small yet so fast compared to the 4 stroke 125s. The there was my rd350lc.....my rg250.....the 350 ypvs...the dumb but fun gt380.....god I miss my 2 strokes!

Its not just the size of the the bike its the build quality, honda made them so well they didnt make much money off them which is why honda discontinued them. They are also very popular because they are one of the fastest 4 stroke 125cc bikes on the market if not the fastest because of its very uncommon v-twin engine, these can apparently cruise at 70mph all day long, most 125s cant even reach that speed and the ones that can sound like you are revving the absolute bollo*** off of it.

It does sit comfortably at 70 you are right. But they are not discontinued no more, Honda have released them again recently.

Oh dear - what a ridiculous statement.

They gave each dealer the option of buying 3 (red, black or white), the rrp is £5k and they've all pretty much sold out all over the country.
