NEW! Su­per-cool Mutt 125

Mutt’s Fat Sab­bath is as re­bel­lious as a small bike can be

MCN - - CONTENTS -

Founded in 2015 by two for­mer bike builders, Birm­ing­ham-based Mutt have made a name for them­selves with some of the loud­est, black­est and bad­dest 125s go­ing. Now they’ve gone a step fur­ther with the lim­it­ededi­tion Fat Sab­bath.

The Fat Sab­bath is ba­si­cally Mutt’s Black­est Sab­bath on steroids (although the Black­est is ba­si­cally their en­try-level Mon­grel on pills). Like the base bike, the Fat Sab­bath shares a ver­sion of the bul­let­proof Suzuki GN125 en­gine which pro­duces 12bhp and 7.4ftlb of torque. Teamed with a fivespeed box, Mutt say it’s good for a gen­uine 70mph.

Re­ally though a Mutt is all about look­ing great, which is why so much time has been spent on the fin­ish. If you didn’t know bet­ter you’d think it was a cus­tom-built spe­cial with a 500cc sin­gle-cylin­der thump­ing at its heart. De­spite so much fo­cus on the bike’s style, it has some prac­ti­cal touches too. It’s got a 12-litre tank that should go 200 miles be­tween fill-ups. And, although it looks old-school the Sab­bath has thor­oughly mod­ern in­nards. It comes with Euro4-friendly fuel in­jec­tion, LED lights and a gear po­si­tion in­di­ca­tor. The Fat Sab­bath is £3495 and in­cludes a two-year war­ranty. That’s not cheap, but it’s a pretty unique piece of kit.
