Title: BIG BOY for 16year old?
Post by: Offroadbiker on April 10, 2015, 12:43:09 pm
Any reason not to get my son one of these for his 16th?

I had a Honda NXR 125 few years back but the dealer is a bit away, where as this one is like 5km from home.

Thanks a lot.

They are not too bad, my son had one for a first bike.
It was fine in a way, the motor never broke but many other bits as well as on the electrical system which was not covered for some reason and always cost a lot.
His next bike was a secondhand Japanese 125 and he did over 20 000km without any problems
I would rather advise to go for a good secondhand Jap before a new China

My experience from Big Boy = BIG TROUBLE Rather go for a good second hand Japanese bike.
