I don't know much about bikes so unsure if a great deal or rubbish
Use code TD-PT7N for this price. Also available in red
With the Motoroma SK 125cc you get an excellent retro styled commuter
bike with responsive handling that is ideal for both novice and
experienced riders.
This blue bike comes in European commuter styling, and packs a 125cc
oil/air cooled 4-stroke engine to help you power your way through the
traffic and is also fuel efficient. This bike comes with an electric and kick
start with CDI ignition and a 5-speed constant mesh transmission system
helps you get the most out of your engine.
The SK 125 has cast wheels with a wavy disk front brake for maximum stopping power in case somebody is not looking properly and pulls out in front of you. Plus a 130mm drum brake on the rear wheel.
This SK 125 is a sensible commuter bike that has a 12L fuel tank and will return good fuel economy with decent performance.

10000 Clubcard points when you buy any Scooter!
great value just for the clubcard points thenX)
I don't know much about Motoroma but assuming it's just another cheap chinese motorcycle, you could spend less on this chinesemotorcycledealers.co.uk/HT1…php and get it from a dealership (probably £100 OTR costs to add to the price). I am happy to be wrong on this though, I know nothing about Motoroma, it could be a good brand name, in which case, ignore my last statement!

On a different note, I'm not sure how happy I'd be getting a motorbike from Tesco - my local branch seems barely able to sell groceries!

Someone at work has got this (similar but different name)

Its the same think with the cheap Pitbikes (Smaller off road bikes) they will need all the screws re tightening frequently or replacing. People who buy the pitbikes just replace ALL of the screws.

Its okay if you want a cheap commuter though!
These things are cheap for one reason, they are made from crap, simple really, the same as most "cheap" products they are produced with cost being the ultimate issue, but unfortunately if you buy a cheap tv and it breaks then that's no big issue, but with these things you could be travelling at close to 60 mph on a dual carriageway when it decides that it's had enough of trying to stay in one piece, avoid at all costs, the decision to buy could well be one of your last !!

You're right, its a very similer spec bike. Not that id invest a grand of my hard earned cash in either of these, if you're after a cheap 125 buy a 2 year old bike from an established manufacturer. Plus, dont believe the mpg figures, you'll not get over 100mpg from one of these.

If Tesco were willing to offer a 2 or 3 year warranty then maybe people would think they had some confidence in the product and be willing to pay the premium

Any 2-wheels is dangerous enough... this low quality bike might add to the risks.
But Why would a company like Tesco sell this things? Any law-suits so far?
ever notice why the always show you view from the right and never where the chain,sprocket is?, if you saw it from the other size you'll notice it has an incredibl small sprocket and it will just pack in buy a used honda or similar and you'll have years of great fun

look at this muppet youtube.com/wat…nel

Tescos would sell old grannies if it could make a profit on it....
These make sense at £600, but thats abit steep. Get a real used CG, CLR city fly. XR, CB. SR, EN, GN etc all can be had for under £800

I really like MZ 125 SM's hard to find them though.
There are several makes of these (mostly) Chinese made bikes, they have huge amounts of failures and problems as the build quality and parts quality are generally low, they would not be so bad at £500 as a learner throw away for a few months of use (safety issues aside), but at the prices they are charging, you can buy a 1-3 year old Honda, Yamaha, etc (all the brands you know) for solid quality, better performance and safety, also you can probably re-sell for not much loss. You will probably never get a buyer for a Chinese bike, so no recoup of the cost, give them 5 years and they will probably be upto par (the Japanese bikes had the same issues in the beginning, now they dominate the market), but not yet.
