are you after anther trail bike or enduro?
whats the budget?
if your going to be doing a lot of road miles or if its going to be your main mode of transport then i personaly would stick with a trail bike.


you could put a 200 head and barrell on the 125 but there getting a bit thin on the ground now.


i,d avoid any of them chinese copy things like the plague through

he did say after a 125 rich Rolling Eyes

but if you can find one a kdx 125 is a brilliant bike in it time same sort of pork as the kmx (different engine) same sort of looks as the kx of its time mush better suspension then the kmx and derestricted it would pull almost 90 flat out.
