Race Hyosung GT125 Rating
The looks of GT 125 is a bit odd but it is completely new in design. The naked edition sports bike is heavy strong by considering the body parts. Besides, the seating position of the much comfortable though customer service of the bike is yet to be proved but due to the Bangladeshi brand, they would probably provide best service to the customers. Top speed is most important for sports bikes where the top speed of GT 125 would impress you. Though, it is a 125 cc bike but can compete with any 150 cc bikes in Bangladesh. However, resale value would be poorer due to poor brand value but within few times, the situation would change.
