A bit of a let down is the low apparent build quality; now don’t get me wrong, we’re not talking about reliability. Just the general fit and finish, we only test most scooters over a period of three days so are not able to comment on reliability; that’s what the long term fleet is for. The Suzuki uses rather cheap plastics and generally doesn’t feel as solid or as well finished as say the Piaggio Fly 125.

Summing up is pretty straight forward. If you want the fastest and most fun smaller bodied 125cc scooter around; buy the Suzuki. If you’re more concerned about smoother handling and general all round quality, buy something more refined, it’s that simple.

I have a 2007 model uz 125 and its by far the best buy for money around ,I checked honda,yamaha,and the top eruos,but the suzuki was the best,as for running it on 95 octane,its ok,so little differance its not worth it,tavel 18kms a day on a motorway, all weathers ,its tops,now 87000 kms never missed a beat,so easy to service,but would love a work shop manual.

I was wondering what type of fuel you put in the Suzuki uz125. The guy at the motorbike shop said to use 95 octane, but the book that came with it says 91 unleaded.
Love the website.

Hey there, I have heard about you... you bought from Colemans yeah? Plastic comment was more to do with the overall feel (ie a bit creaky and rattly compared to some of its italian bretheren) rather than the actual solidity of it. Mine came out pretty good from a drop also. Yeah am hoping to hot it up a bit, nothing too major but I am having the same trouble as you. Keep an eye on the long term fleet article and I will put in any updates in there.
