I had a 125R that I bought new on 2009 (08 model). With only 13 H.P. it does not have a great amount of acceleration...BUT if you use it as intended (not on the Highway) as use it a recreational "toy" to get from point A to point B it is just fine.Welcome! We're down in Chatham and have a 300f. I'd love to know, how much of a difference is it? We were back and forth between a used 125 for 2k or a new 300f.
I could never really get a good sense as to how much an improvement it is. Keeping in mind I'm used to small displacement bikes.
I'd still love to borrow a 125, just to see for myself.
