Plan on getting taken to school and back if someone on your block has a PW50!!!!
A buddy of mine has a yz 80 and he can beat this thing on any trail, track, or straight away!!!!
And just imagine my torquey yet 4 stroke air cooled tt-r125l yamaha eating it and spitting it out the exhaust pipe!!!!
Suspension
It bottoms out when I rest my gloves on it!!!
If you go off a 4 ft. jump or higher your fork will bend and your rear wheel will take a bite out of your fender!!!!
I have to stop and ice my but every 5 minutes!!
Brakes
The disk brakes get red hot after casual braking for an hour!!!
Don't brake if you're allergic to smoke!!!
Let's just say if you plan on stopping don't buy this bike!!!!!!!!
Comments
If I could rate it any lower than 60 it would be a 4!!!
If you want a good bike get a TT-R or YZ by Yamaha!!!!!!!

Power
this bike has good low and top end power. this alows it to be a good trail bike for an experienced rider it is quite different from the average 4 stroke trail bike because this bike needs to be ridden harder.
Suspension
the bike has a kips suspention system which is excellent for any kind of ridden weather it be trails or the track this bike can handle it without any problems.
Brakes
this bike has front and rear disk brakes. they are excellent just dont squeeze the front to hard unless u are prepared to go over the bars.
Comments
this is a good bike for a rider with experience but a dont recomened it for a beginner this bike will leave a beginer on his back wondering where the bike is.

Pretty good

fair
Comments
I had to move to a TTR125L. I wanted to raced so I modified it. I will say I would rather have a modified TTR than a stock KX100. The KX was pretty much faster though.

Power
This bike has plenty of bottom but to get the top end to race with other bikes you need to put after market parts on it. Over all this bike has alot of power for its class.
Suspension
Both the front forks and the back suspension is great. This bike is great for big air jumps and also great for woops and small jumps.
Brakes
This bike has very sensitive front brakes so watch out when you are using them even at a slow pace.The back brakes are very good also but for stoping at a high speed they might slip.
Comments
Over-all this bike is a very good bike for a rider with some experiece who wants more top end out of a smaller bike. Also this bike is very reliable so you can start it in any weather.

Awesome...Great Top-end power and very good low in power too.
Suspension
Great, you can jump as high as you want and it want mess up at all, and with the inverted forks you got all the suspension you need.
Brakes
Not great you have to use both the front and the back to stop fast...but my advise is to not slam on the front brakes! (common sense)
Comments
GREAT BIKE for making the transition from the 85 to the 125. the front will can come up in 5th and 6th after the power-band kicks in!
