Well here's a bit of a spoiler. Last Fall I rode it in its original 125R state and absolutely loved the feel of the newer chassis compared to the older 2009 125R (that I still have - now with the newly swapped 2011 125R engine). I've ridden it for 2 hour stretches without getting sore. There's definitely more room on the updated version. It feels like a slightly smaller version of the CBR250R (which I also own). I now have a Givi top case for it. Will probably use my Ortlieb waterproof saddles. Here it is when I first picked it up. A little flashy for my tastes (almost all of my bikes have been black!) but it's growing on me. These are the older Repsol colours which makes the 2011 version unique (they weren't an option on the CBR250R). I think I like it better than the newer 2012 Repsol colours adopted by both the CBR125R and CBR250R last year.
