Budget-focused British motorcycle company Sinnis Motorcycles has launched a brand-new addition to its range, the Sinnis GPX125 sportsbike.
Pitched as a value-for-money alternative in an illustrious and competitive market of learner legal targeted 125cc sportsbikes, the Sinnis GPX125 aims to offer sporty styling and eager performance at a competitive price.
Conceived and engineered in the UK, but manufactured in China, the Sinnis GPX125 debuts a confident design direction for the firm with the poised, fully-faired profile emphasised by some smart design touches, such as the side pod-housed LED headlights that flank a sharply-sculpted nose and slender LED running lights on the front cowl.
Under the skin is a liquid-cooled single-cylinder 124.2cc engine designed for brisk urban motorcycling and low speed control. It produces approximately 12.7bhp at 9,500rpm and 10.67Nm of torque at 7,500rpm.
This compares favourably with its target rival, the big-selling Lexmoto LXR 125, which offers 11.7bhp and 9.49Nm of torque.
Available in Carbon Black with teal decals or Ultimate Grey with fluro detailing, the Sinnis GPX125 adds a digital instrument panel with ‘crisp illumination’ and glove-friendly touch buttons, while the firm says it has paid particular attention to ensuring it is easy-to-ride with a comfortable ergonomic ‘triangle’ riding position of footpegs, handlebars and seating.
A tubular steel frame is paired with upside-down front suspension and linkage-driven rear mono-shock for greater stability and keen handling.
The Sinnis GPX125 is available now at a starting price of £3,299 OTR making it marginally more expensive than the flagship Lexmoto LXR SE 125 (£3,099) but much cheaper than a host of other premium 125cc sportsbikes, such as the Kawasaki Ninja 125 (£4,199), Suzuki GSX-R125 (£4,499) and Yamaha R125 (£4,900).
We’ll be road testing the new 2022 Sinnis GPX125 in the coming weeks so keep an eye out for the full review…
