HEIGHT 5ft 11in WEIGHT 110kg si­mon.pat­ter­son@mo­tor­cy­cle­news.com I have man­aged to get in a cou­ple of longer trips on the J125, in­clud­ing 150 miles to Snet­ter­ton and back for a day out at a Bri­tish Su­per­bike race. The big scooter is sur­pris­ingly at home on the mo­tor­way and on dual car­riage­ways, sit­ting quite com­fort­ably at 70mph. It’ll hap­pily over­take, and it’s not even out of place in the out­side lane at times. There is one thing that needs chang­ing if I’m go­ing to be do­ing more miles though – the screen. It’s fine around town, but the wind off it seems to just hit me across the chest at higher speeds, bounc­ing my head around and leav­ing me deal­ing with a fair bit of wind noise to boot.

Ur­ban war­rior is good on faster roads too
