Too bad the rider wasn't pushing it more. would have liked to see some hard accleration and braking to go with it right before those turns.

Still, thanks for posting this, these look better on the track :D

Yup, just need to get it up to the right speed and find turns that help to bring up those leaning opportunities.

Just have to wait for some brave riders to come along. With how much slower things are taking off for the Z125 i won't to expect to see it as fast as the Grom has.

Probably great practice before you move up in cc and go on track. Shouldn't be too bad since it's a smaller bike and you're not going at high speeds. would be interesting to see someone this with a Z125 but that doesn't seem to be the 125cc culture in thailand.

Good point, getting a feel for the leans and developing your balance control and all is essential. Basically using this as a platform to get the fundamentals well seated is what this can be, which is what most starter bikes act as any ways.

The smaller bike is more forgiving in the sense of getting in trouble plus on the track it gets squirly quicker if you do something wrong making you really try to improve your riding. However if ur strictly a street rider who wants to go down highways you should get a bigger bike

Most 125cc bikes are bound to have huge chicken strips since it is supposed to be a street bike. People don't usually take them on track.
Of all my local friends with Z125s, I don't know any who don't take then to the track.

Probably great practice before you move up in cc and go on track.
What if we practiced on big high powered bikes for 15 years before moving down to 125's?

This is an ancient 4 year old thread dug up that reeks of preconceptions from the early days.
