Oh, you didn't see the in-store bargain one in Brighton, then?

4-stroke engine is a pleasant change for a 125. Worthwhile to check out availability of spares before commiting to buy. Describing it as a Suzuki type 'clone' is a bit confusing.

Most likely just cheap Chinese crap. All bolts will need replacing within a year, if they don't shred off before that time. Buy a second hand Honda, yamaha or suzuki!

These Chinese copies were based on the old Suzuki GS125 from a few years ago I had one when I first started and it was no worse than the Chinese made Honda 125 which was over 2k! My thoughts on this bike are to use it to take your test on and then sell, 2 and 3 year old examples go for £1000 to £1200 so its cheaper than having one on rental with the bike school. Obviously if you're just not cut out to be a motorcyclist and always falling off its best to have the rental package!!

To be honest I would say by a 1-3 year old Honda CBF or Yamaha YBR for about that price, they will be far less likely to have corrosion and other issues, also they will hold their value, I sold my CBF for a £100 profit after owning it for 10 months, Chinese bikes tend to drop to £500 or less straight away.

if you know what you're doing and not get a thrashed to pieces s/h bike then maybe. If not these are good solid bikes that sell at good prices on eBay, just checked!

Buy a second hand bike for £500 then spend the rest on learning to ride it and pass your test!!!

I agree with above, buy 2nd hand for £500, £70 - £80 for cbt ,insure for a year, gain some experience and sit test with remainder.

I personally bought a Honda cbf125, sat cbt and rode for a year, got 120mpg knocked 20 mins of journey to work, gained experience and sailed through big bike test. If you buy a used CBF then you will not loose much on value when you sell on again as they are well built machines and the most sold bike in the UK at the moment

Big problem is that most usable CBF125 start second hand at this Tesco bike's asking price new. Most probably will need exhaust, tyres,chain and sprockets and front fork seals which all adds up.
