Default 2012+ 125??

Haven't been able to find anything on the 125...Is the tiddler no more??

I'm a small bore rider, had a couple husky 125/144s and currently on a TM 125.

My cousin has a 02 XC 125 that I picked out for him, we both love the smaller bikes and are planning to buy some new ones soon. Do we have to go Husky or TM again?

Not here in the US. We brought in fifteen 2011 models and it took forever to move them. I might be able to special order one for you but it would take something like 3 months to arrive.

Maybe find one of those '11s still at a dealer? I'm sure the '12s do not use the new frame like the bigger bikes, so no big difference.

Surfer,
This dealer bought the last 125 we had. Not sure if it is new or not. It may have been demo'ed.

Kind off topic, but how many total units does Gas Gas move in the US each year? When you say something like that about 11 125's that were slow to move, it amazes me. We need to get the word out there and get sales up!

We sold 504 units in 2011. We initially ordered 600 2012 models but would up getting 140 due to the late delivery. I hope to do 400 2013 models. About 65% of these units are 300s. We brought in low numbers of 125s and 250 4Ts and they moved very slow. I wanted to give those models a try though to see how they would do.

Thanks Clay! That amazes me. That really puts things in perspective for me. You guys (along with the Gas Gas) do a darn good job of keeping prices in check when competing against other manufacturers where economies of scale change things drastically.

I liked Clay's remarks about Mark so much that I have added it to my signature Ha

I don't think I'd go the 125 route with GG as there seems to be very very little info around regarding them, and very little of them in circulation. The 200/250/300 are the ones getting the development, and the 4T range is proven Yamaha tech so no issues with parts availability or information there. Just my thoughts. I'm sure they're great bikes to ride.

Very interesting on the figures Clay. Hope you make your expected sales for 2013! Don't sell too many mate!
