Want to show you guys the Kymco KR 125 or the Quannon. Not really well known in the world of 125s, seems to be overlooked by alot of people, only ever seen 2 out and about and 1 was my best mates. These things r literally about 4 mph slower than our bikes they are rapid (for a 125 4 stroke obv lol ) maybe slightly faster acceleration if im honest. Big bikes too, makes you wonder why people go for Honda over these as Kymco used to make parts for Honda.

That fast? Even though it is a 5 speed? (I suppose that is where the extra 4mph is from)

Yup. That is the reason RIGHT there :p
Also the fact that nobody has heard of it?

Oh yeah, my friend has one.
Terrible. Constantly adjusting the brake sensor, and cables etc.
It's slow.
The dash looks unreliable at best.

And he constantly has to kick start it, and even then, the kickstarter looks like it could snap at any moment.

And this is all on a 2011 bike with only a thousand or so miles on.

these bikes arent too bad, had a friend who had one till he killed it :p was near as fast as mine and my friends r125, but getting to somewhere he would be faster, because hes a nutter though, overtaking stupidly etc. its not what bike youve got at the end of the day its how you ride it, he threw his Kr-125 about no end, me and my mate care about our R125s abit more so made sure we got to where ever not as fast as possible :p

Heed my advice fish tell him to change ALL the cables to Jap ones. Get a good qaulity battery and what ever electrical components he can, also change wheel bearings to jap ones, change the tyres and brake pads.
But the main thing here, and i meen above everything else tell him to wack an irridium in it. Tell ya mine was touching 70 with it in the originals are called Torch plugs, get an ngk in itll be so much better. Also a sprocket with 1 tooth up at the front :)

N agreed azz its the rider. if you fearless and a complete nutter youll get places faster or die in the process, but us on our near-as-makes-no-difference £4000 bikes we need to be more sensible
