as handy as you may think these are, i personally wouldn't spend my money on one. i very rarely catch myself thinking i'm in the wrong gear and you really do get used to engine noise and the speed your surroundings are travelling at. i could most probably ride my bike without an instrument panel.

Yeah I would not have a use for that the only time I look down is when I'm using 5th and need to take it all the way to make use of the 6th gear. Don't like hitting the limiter if possible.

Was considering one just for general helpfulness, but then I saw they're about £100 on average. So naaaah

Agreed andy. I'm not sure why it doesn't come as standard tho especially as its aimed amd marketed as a 'learner' bike. Just in the tach where the rev range isn't in the bottom right corner would be good

With the gearing on an R125 they are widely spaced with a low powered engine, with a closer spaced gearbox and a more powerful engine it is harder to differentiate instantly what gear you are in, based on revs alone.

plus the shift light would always be on!

Rarely see that, you know when you are geting close to it, the white line is beginning to look solid even though it's dotted, and the scream is something else.
i can imagine.
