Has anyone actually bought or ridden a 125 yet?

Apologies if I my skills with the Google and the DBW search function are sub par, but I can't find any reviews from punters.

Trying to make at least a semi-informed decision between the Sherco 125, Beta 125 and Beta 200.

I have only ridden the Sherco 125. Really nice fun bike, but you have to like dancing on the gear lever!! The Beta 200 will be a killa bike I recon

125's are generally a bit underpowered for tech riding unless your a flyweight or you only ride open terrain. I find my sons ktm xcw150 has alot more torque then a 125 and it can lug down well if needed where as a 125 can't do this,especially on hills. If a ktm is out of the question, then the beta 200 would be my pick. They are about 7kgs heavier then a ktm 150 though and the the ktm150 has a 10.5 ltr tank standard which gives excellent range. My sons mate has a sherco 125 which is a nice bike but my sons 150 eats it for torque.
Ktm 200 is still a quick young juniors weapon of choice so the beta should be great. Beta forks are the only ? and unknown for me. Xplor can be tuned well with a bit of work and tuners know them well. It's a real pity that beta can't put kyb on their bikes like gg. Gg will hopefully make a 200 with kyb soon as their old 200's were excellent bikes.

This wouldn't be my first 125 or 200.

I'm trying to get an idea of how the Sherco 125 goes compared to (say) a late model YZ125.

I read on a Facebook page a while ago that a Sherco shop (think Newcastle area) who put one on a dyno . It had 1 extra hp and 1 extra ftlb of torque over the current KTM 125sx . Not bad I thought for an enduro bike with electric start and full ADR.

If that's true then that is massive considering the new ktm 125 engine was packing so much HP!

Not that you can necessarily trust magazine reviews, but this one was very positive. It sounds like it has heaps of torque for a 125.

Devans, The link isn't working.
I can't find anything newer than 2016 on trailrider.com , presumably I'm not even on the right site.
