    The Z125 make's a great mini sized fun Dual Sport bike / It's like having a Street Legal (plated) pit bike . It has amazing street manners, and honestly its smoother than my KLR on 100 mile rides . I myself would not suggested it as your only adventure/dual sport bike , but It's a great bargain for a brand new bike at 3,500 as a extra or starter bike . and the 'Kid Type Fun' size and handling will leave you smiling the whole time
    .
    I've stripped a lot of the street looks and accessories off of mine and have been places I wouldn't have tried on my big bike ... Size Matters :bow

    Cool!

    I was eyeing one at my motodealer the other week.
    Yes, not what I would ever want an my only bike. But as a 3rd/4th bike it looks super cool.

    Very cool bikes! I want one but I'd need a high exhaust like this one. I do not see any for the Z125.

    There's no big difference between Z125s and Groms ... Kawi riders will probably get the Z' , and Honda riders will probably get the Grom .......... The BMW riders $$$ will probably get one of each .
