READY TO ROCK THE STREETS
There’s a science to building high-performance engines, and the GSX-R125’s DOHC engine could be used in a university textbook as an example of how to make a lot of power out of a very efficient and compact powerplant. The engine makes high horsepower for its size and produces generous torque, delivering strong, effective power across a broad rpm range.
There is a connection between the GSX-R125 and the race-proven four-cylinder GSX-R600 sold around the world, because the GSX-R125’s single cylinder is almost one-quarter of a GSX-R600. Although Suzuki engineers experimented with different bore and stroke figures to find the most efficient combination for the GSX-R125, the two engines both use an over-square design, with a larger bore and a shorter stroke, and have a similar bore x stroke ratio, 1.576:1 for the GSX-R600 and 1.505:1 for the GSX-R125.
Lightweight BOSCH unit
The ABS unit is the latest Bosch ABS 10 base unit, which is the lightest and most compact two-channel ABS system on the market, weighing on 0.59kg. The pro-active system monitors wheel speed and immediately intervenes when imminent wheel lock is detected-before actual lock-up.
Full LCD instrument panel
The Suzuki GSX-R125 features a full LCD instrument panel set in a modern dashboard. The bright LCD panel includes a segmented-bar tachometer across the top, a digital speedometer, gear position indicator, digital clock, digital odometer with dual trip meters, an average fuel consumption meter, fuel gauge; and an oil change timing indicator.
KEY-LESS IGNITION SYSTEM
The GSX-R125 features a convenient key-less ignition system, and the rider can start the engine as long as the compact key is close enough in proximity to the motorcycle.
Which means the rider doesn’t have to fumble around to retrieve the key from their pocket or backpack.
A button on the remote control also activates an answer-back function, causing the indicators to flash and making it easier to find the GSX-R125 in a crowded car park.
Vertically stacked LED Headlight
Reflecting its GSX-R heritage, the GSX-R125 features vertically stacked LED headlights, with the low beam above the high beam, and position lights on each side of the headlight. LED headlights are bright and compact, lighter and longer lasting compared to conventional halogen-bulb headlights as seen on competitors.
LED Combination Unit
The LED tail light unit features a racer-like design, compact and sporty in appearance.
10-Spoke Aluminium Wheels
The GSX-R125’s lightweight, sporty 10-spoke 17-inch cast aluminium wheels are shod with Dunlop D102 tyres.
Electronic Fuel Injection
GSX-R125 features a large 32mm diameter throttle body. This results in great intake efficiency for high rpm and power output. A dual-spray, four-hole injector aims the spray from two holes directly at the intake valves.
Suzuki Easy Start
This system enables engine starting at one push of the button. A computerised ECM checks the status and engages the starter motor immediately after activating the switch, making the engine starting process even easier for the rider.
