Anyone else pimp one of these cool mites?

I bought a Z125 back in March. I've got almost 2000 miles on it now commuting back and forth for work and backroad shenanigans.

She scoots pretty well for 9hp!

I added a full exhaust, intake, rear shock, springs, PCV, and a D'Cors graphics kit (free from Kaw) and slightly larger Michelin Pilots.

Get 100 plus MPG and does an honest 60mph on level ground.

We did some Grom vs Z125 runs. The Zs have more top end when you derestrict them but if you don't get the gearing right you're toast. The Honda had the better street power. If you wanna beat the living sh!t out of it I would suggest the Honda. Heavier riders can use a little more midrange.

Upper 60s to low 70s on GPS.

The wind, as always, wins.
