I rode mine to a bar ,parked with the Harleys (where I used to park my Harley). Someone walks into the bar and hollers " Who's the cute one outside?" I raised my hand and a bunch went outside to check it out. I never would have expected that. The other day I was camping and my big ole 125 was just sitting there and I was having a cold one and this lady told me my bike was cute. They checked it out and left. Anyone else get any attention?

Lol... I was at my local dealer over the weekend and they had 5 Zs sitting there. A few KRTs and a few regular Pros. Guy and Gal walk over and she comments on how cute they are. He asked if that's something she would want and for a minute she seemed to entertain the idea. No idea if he was just playing with her or serious but I could see the cute comments regardless.


Don't lose focus though, they are definitely just checking the bike out most likely lol

It isn't a scooter, I don't ride with my knees together. My wife has a scooter thats why I didn't buy one. The Z125 is just a hair manlier than a scooter, I'll accept a hair. ;) . I used to refer to my Road king as a scooter. But It's fun and I don't mind the cute comments.

Yeah, for sure this thing is far more amazing than any scooter. It's when you see people riding scooters you question why they wouldn't just get a Z125, Grom or Benelli! Granted I know a scooter has its place for some people but for the majority taking it on the roads? Why not go this route.

May be the area I'm in but riding around on mine I get people leaning out their windows asking me how fast it goes and every other question. Especially in traffic or at a red light. I did have a dude on a 1 ton Harley try to overcompensate by challenging me to a race at a gas station. Ok man... you do you.

I get a lot of comments and some of my butthole friends rib me about my fat butt riding a mini bike but I'm having fun and I've always done whatever I wanted regardless of what people think. Just be yourself! I've had more fun on my Z than my Bandit 1200 so fun can definitely come in small packages!

When I saw mine on the show room floor I remarked that "that's sorta cute"..the floor people didnt think much of my comment, but I ended up buying it. About 8K miles later and still love it.

Strangely, none of my friends ever tease me about the Z125. In fact they all want one too.

Same when I had my YSR50 on the road, we had endless fun flogging that thing on the roads to see how fast we could make it go. The P in MPH was the fastest for me which was somewhere above about 50mph.

i've gotten the cut comment a few times so far.
i showed mine stock to my brother's buddy that rides larger liter bikes. at first he said it was cute, i let him ride around the block and he said he didn't think he would like it but actually kinda did. then i did fender elim, intake, exhaust, hd clutch, and sprocket, he coulcn't believe how much it changed, said he would ride one around town.

I think that's the problem in general, people judge it before even trying it or seeing it in person not realizing how capable it is considering its size but moreover just how fun it is. I will say I'm not a fan of riding it at 55MPH with wind bursts... otherwise it's a blast.
