The UK's Best Value Quality 125cc

“Early motorcycle designs from Motorhispania were sleeker, tougher and quicker than their counterparts and this is a technical advantage that has remained with the company throughout recent years” – Quality Scooters

Sometimes having a nice looking on the road motorcycle just isn’t enough. I know for sure that I like to feel dirt beneath my tires and nothing is so satisfying as feeling my back tire dig in and kick off at a start over some loose track. This is exactly what the Motorhispania DUNA SX 125cc off road learner legal motorcycle was built for.

Now something you not know about Motorhispania is that their business actually evolved through aviation technology development processes and this gave Motorhispania an edge that no other Spanish scooter manufacturer had at the time. The result was that early product designs from Motorhispania were sleeker, tougher and quicker than their counterparts and this is a technical advantage that has remained with the company throughout recent years.

The DUNA SX is one of the company’s brand new off-road motorcycles aimed at the learner legal market in the UK and boy, does it deliver. It is one of the most robust and tough off-roaders we’ve seen in the last few months and the excellent design capabilities of Motorhispania mean that this extra toughness does not come at a price – either a financial one or a performance one.

As well as excellent design, the DUNA SX supplements this with real quality parts. The upside down, shock absorbing forks are designed by Paioli Meccanica and the superior brake disc technology is supplied by Tecme. These quality parts enable the DUNA SX to hit over 60mph with it’s 12 BHP in complete control whilst at the same time offering a satsifactory 7.8 litre fuel tank.

When all of this comes together with aviation design knowhow, you get a pretty fantastic, nippy and solid piece of kit at an excellent price-tag. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more compelling offering in it’s class.

“The conclusion here is that we can without doubt heartily recommend this 125cc Enduro Motorcycle as an excellent step into learner legal motorcycling” – Quality Scooters

The Artix Enduro 125cc learner legal motorcycle from Zongshen completely changes our perception of chinese motorcycle quality. We write about chinese motorcycles and scooters every day so we know what horror stories you might have heard in the past but we can happily say that this Enduro bike from Zongshen truly breaks the mould.

It is one of the few chinese motorcycles currently available in the UK that you’ll find an array of branded parts on including the fantastic Showa forks and shocks and Galfer Wave disc brakes. This introduces a whole new playing field for chinese motorcycles because with this bike, Zongshen have managed to maintain their excellent low prices whilst bringing in real value add in terms of better quality parts.

They’ve also taken a leaf out of ‘better design for dummies’ because unlike some of their previous offerings, they’ve really spared no detail in terms of the quality of finish. This is apparent in the newly anodised chain and galfer wave disc brakes, both front and rear. You’ll also notice a slick new chassis with performance-enhancing aerodynamic forms that serve to improve fuel efficiency and, of course, speed.

No summary of a new bike is complete without the customary testosterone-fuelled exploration of speed and performance. The new Artix Enduro from Zongshen comfortably matches everything else in it’s class and price-range when it comes to this aspect and without too much trouble, you can expect to wring 60mph out of this 125cc with it’s 11.7 BHP. A hearty performance, for sure.

The conclusion here is that we can without doubt heartily recommend this 125cc Enduro Motorcycle, especially at it’s fantatsic ON THE ROAD price of £1669.99 inc VAT from Scooter Central.

Alternatively, you can pick up a used vintage scooter for around the same price and if you’re handy at all, this may be the better hobby-cum-commuter scooter solution for you. Used italian vespas, tamorrettis and piaggios can command a higher resale price that is comparative to a new 125cc or 50cc retro scooter so it really is up to you to decide just what sort of quality you want for your scooter.

At the end of the day, you could end up saving a couple of hundred pounds buying a used scooter compared to a new scooter but you’ll have to weigh the time i’ll take to get the scooter up and running to perfect condition + the cost of putting that time into it (as well as buying the parts) against the extra few hundred you could pay for a brand new scooter.
