Cool bike but you'll be wringing its neck to do anything and it'll need top end rebuilds often.

RS125 is a good second bike to fuck around with, it is not a good first bike imo.

If you have a 125cc restrictions and it's the fastest bike you can get I empathize, but I'd still have another bike if I was needing to use it to commute in that circumstance.

If it's just a weekend warrior fun machine while you're restricted to 125cc bikes go right ahead.

If you're fat and tall the rs125 will be Italian satan, they might look smaller but trust me a cb125e will actually be more accomodating to a larger figure.

Look for a 2t 125 mortard, it'll make similar power but fit you better

probably a 690 enduro r adventure (or however its name is correctly), a regular (xt660z) tenere or >>12195816
you don't need a liter to ride around on dirt roads

What's your opinion on electric bikes, sportbikes in particular?
I've been fascinated by the progress they are making, and I would love to testride one some day.
Price is of course a huge issue, but I'd be very surprised if it didn't come down in the next decade or two.
Unlike electric cars, electric bikes like this aren't really conceived out of a desire to save the planet, but rather because some people realised that they have enormous potential.
From a practical perspective they offer little advantage over ICE's admittedly, but they are very smooth and probably great for urban commuting.
Also, electric dirtbikes are great for countries like Germany where you can't legally offroad in many places - the fact that they make no more noise than a bicycle means that the negativity towards dirtbikes may go away.

And lets face it, there is a definite risk that sooner or later, only EVs will be allowed on public roads, and I'm on favor of anything that will let me keep motorcycling. If all we're giving up is the howl of an ICE, but no performance, I wouldn't even be mad.

that's just horsecrap. Sure, it may be harder to pick up a HD Electra Glide in a puddle of mud.
But out of bikes you could reasonably expect to take off of paved roads, are there any heavier ones?
Even if so, It's a fucking boat by roadbike standards, let alone enduros.

If you only commute and make some little tours on the weekend a electric bike may be ok but sometimes I want to spend the weekend riding somewhere and you simply cant do that with a electric bike.

Yes, they make poor tourers at the moment, and it will probably be a long time until that changes.
But 180 miles from a large battery pack in for example the LS-218 isn't anything to scoff at either. There are roadbikes getting less - so the question really comes down to charging.

they just now started beating combustion engine motorcycles (pikes peak). they have come a long way.

but the battery is still holding them back horribly. a long with cars. once we find a real better replacement for lithium batteries that we can mass produce i imagine they will become a common thing.

but as it is they are expensive and take forever to recharge

180 miles is a lot. But when the battery is empty I thinks thats it for the day since charging will take too much time.

The motor has 225Nm of torque, that's a shitload.
The reason why the rear sprocket is so huge is that the primary gear ratio is equivalent to 6th gear on a normal bike. Going with a transmission to increase torque would just mean that you need traction control to keep the wheels from spinning on takeoff while incurring parasitic losses and weight gain and hence less top-end performance. So there would really be nothing to gain.

>>12195927
Well, the batteries are a lot smaller than in an electric car, so naturally they take a lot less time to charge.
It's still long compared to filling up a 17L tank on a regular bike, but 30 minutes on a supercharger isn't quite the whole day either.

start vaping with nicotine so its easy to step down the dosage with different oils and then you can figure out breaking the physical hand to mouth habit without the nicotine craving killing you too.

youll need to remind yourself why you're quitting at times to keep your will up, sit down and tally up how much cigs cost and the medical costs of what they do down the road and keep that around.
and dbt will support you however we can

Carbed bikes have chockes to richen the air-fuel mixture when starting the bike.
Even older bikes sometimes need setting the petcock into the correct position.
EFI bikes don't require a manual choke. It works as you said.

Apparently some early 2000's Suzukis had a faux-choke lever which opened the throttle slightly to raise the "idle". That's different from a choke though and isn't necessary on modern EFI bikes, where the ECU will manage the air-fuel ratio.
