Best 125cc scooter for deliveries..
« on: January 01, 2021, 04:29:24 pm »
Hi Dogs, best wishes for 2021 for all! Lets hope its a better one than last year..

Im looking to buy a new scooter for the delivery guy. I see the pricing is about 20-25k for a major brand scooter. Vespa is too much..

What do you guys think? Suzuki 110 or 125/ Honda 125 or maybe something else?

thanks! :thumleft:

If your guy is fairly lightweight, the 110 will do fine.

Honda 125 will be a good safe bet

Thanks! I had a quick look at the specs and the 2 major differences between the Honda and Suzi are weight(Suzi is about 25kg heavier) and cooling system(Suzuki125 has a liquid cooling system and Honda only aircooled) . Not sure if my research is accurate..

Isnt a liquid cooling system better?

I have the Suzuki address uk 110. It's air cooled but has fuel injection. It can get my 115kg body up to 90km/h while giving me 30km to a liter. I love my little scooter.

The suspension will hold. It's a T7, not a 790, it will only go "kaklunk". :imaposer:

Frans, depending on your delivery distances, the Kymco 100 2stroke, 2nd hand at around R8000 is a great and strong scooter, with minimal maintenance.

Any of the Kymco's can be considered, along with the Japs.

My pal here at Honda offered me a new Suzuki 125 at R 21500.........apparently old price. I wanted it for my daughter but decided against it (safety issues).

Shout if you want this number - brand new, white one, R 21500. Honda in Bloem sells a Honda 125 at around R 26500 I think.

Frans..............obviously reliability/price  is important factor, but also remember that this will be a working machine
and it will make money.  Parts availability and quick turn-around time(s) on break-downs might be a very
important consideration. 

No use you buy at bargain price and parts are all ex-japan/china with eg. a 4 week backorder time...........
In such a case it would cost your more money, as you will actually loose money while waiting.
