THE FACTS 15bhp 133kg Seat height 785mm

Suzuki un­veiled their all-new GSX-R125 a month ago, and it’s lit­tle sur­prise that they’ve fol­lowed that with a naked ver­sion, which joins their grow­ing GSX-S family.

The new light­weight naked ob­vi­ously shares the vast ma­jor­ity of its parts num­bers with its faired sib­ling, while the styling cues are very clearly aligned with its naked el­ders.

Suzuki claim it’s got the best power-to-weight ra­tio in the class, and at 133kg it’s cer­tainly lithe, while the low and rel­a­tively nar­row seat will also open it up to a wide range of rid­ers. The seat and footrest po­si­tion is iden­ti­cal to the R ver­sion, but the bars are 100mm higher, push­ing the rider into a more up­right po­si­tion for im­proved vi­sion and com­fort in town.

It too gets Bosch ABS, and de­cently wide tyres, run­ning a 90/80 17 front and 130/70 17 rear.

The naked GSX-S125 will be in deal­ers next sum­mer
