Derbi turned up at the Milan Eicma show with this completely new Derbi GPR 125 4T. The small sports motorcycle has an agressive design and a new chassis and engine. The suspension is rigid, based on a real racer style, the upside-down fork measures 40mm, a record in this sector, and the rear fork is asymmetrical, leaving space for the transmission chain.The engine of this GPR 125 is a single cylinder, four stroke, four valves with twin cam distribution and Euro 3 compliant. It’s capable of 15hp, and has consumption of 4.2 l/km. The 13 litre tank therefore offers an autonomy of about 300km.Other features include the 300mm front disc brake with radial calipers and four pistons; the rear is a 218mm disc with single piston caliper. The instrumentation includes LCD digital display and the front headlight is halogen.
The soul of the new GPR 125 is the single cylinder four-stroke engine with four intake and exhaust valves and developing 15 actual hp. This engine is one of the highest performing in its class, with consumption in the region of 4.2 l/100km. The Derbi GPR 125’s 13-litre tank can therefore offer a total riding range of over 300km. It more than complies with the current Euro 3 emissions standard.
The braking equipment on the new GPR 125 is of the same quality as the rest of the bike. On the front axle, a 300mm disc is gripped by a two-piston radial brake caliper. The rear brake is of the single-piston caliper type.Looking at the dashboard on the new GPR 125, one can clearly see the influence of MotoGP bikes. An LCD digital screen incorporates the revolutions counter in a progressive line, the digital speedometer, fuel gauge, total and partial mileage counter and a clock.
For night vision, the GPR has a powerful front headlight with a halogen bulb. At the back, the slim tailpiece which accommodates the passenger seat incorporates a modern light set based on clearly visible, rapid illumination LED technology.
