There are many exciting 125cc bikes on the market, with something to fit everyone’s needs, whether that’s in a new or second hand 125cc motorbike. We’ve picked out 3 of the most popular models that we could help you finance:

1. KTM 125 Duke

Starting at £4,499

“Built with the same attitude as the bigger bikes” is KTM’s motto for the 125 Duke, and it shows. At a glance, it would be easy to mistake the 125 Duke for a larger bike.

Its TFT dash display and LED highlight round off its aggressive styling. Backing this up is sharp and responsive handling, allowing you to manoeuvre through traffic with ease. The suspension on its newest models (2017 onwards) offers a smoother ride than you might get with earlier versions. The 125 Duke comes with a 15hp single-cylinder engine, anti-lock braking system and an LED headlight.

Our top pick is the KTM 125 Duke. If this bike appeals as much to you as it does to us, then apply today and we can help guide you through the rest.

2. Yamaha MT-125

Starting at £4,700

The MT-125 is essentially the naked junior model in Yamaha’s MT series. Its new look, including a range of new colourways, all add up to make what many consider to be one of the most attractive 125cc motorcycles on the market.

The assisted slipper clutch offers easy gear changing for new riders, and its all new variable valve actuation system helps it get down on the road well. In summary, if you’re looking for a stylish, feature-rich bike, the Yamaha MT-125 might be the bike for you.

3. Suzuki GSX-R125

Starting at £4,299

As you’d expect from Suzuki’s GSX-R line, the GSX-R125 offers a very sporty ride. It has plenty of nice touches, such as its MotoGP styling. It is slightly smaller than some of its counterparts like the Yamaha MT-125. However, this may suit new riders better.

You might find it cheaper to run and maintain than most of its 125cc rivals. Insurance is slightly cheaper than most, servicing and parts prices aren’t bad, and it is frugal in its fuel usage.

Overall, the GSX-R125 is a good introduction to the world of sports bikes while still being value for money.

Why buy a 125cc motorbike?

One of the most compelling reasons to invest in a 125cc motorbike is the price tag – 125cc bikes generally have a lower starting price than their sports or touring counterparts, making them a great option to consider.

With a smaller engine size, 125cc models obviously have slightly less power than other motorcycles on the market. However, with this brings the advantage of an easy to manage ride, perfect for a first motorbike and people just beginning to ride, or those looking to gain confidence and experience on a bike. As the most powerful engine that can be driven with an A1 licence, it’s no surprise that these motorbikes are so popular with those getting interested in driving on two wheels.

However, their popularity certainly isn’t restricted to the beginner rider, 125cc scooters and bikes can be used for both the practicality of a commute, or for fun weekend rides.

Finance your 125cc motorbike

As a specialist vehicle finance provider, we may be able to help where other finance providers cannot. If you have a bad credit history, are in an IVA or have a CCJ, we will still consider your application for finance – meaning you’re more likely to be able to drive away on your 125cc motorbike.

We can offer finance on motorbikes if you have a valid CBT licence, which means that 125cc motorbikes may be of particular interest to you, since this is the maximum engine size before a full motorbike licence is required.
