Hi Bikers

I would like to review my motorbike which is AJS ECO E2 Js-125

These is my first bike, I had a lot of choice like YBR-125, SYM XS125, Piaggio x9 or Phantom 125. I haven't chosen ybr125 because it was too expensive for me, Sym has bad seat and I decide to not buy a scooter because I want to do full licence for manual. So my choice becomes AJS ECO, my first impressions hasn't been positive because of how its look like and it is Chinese, however I decided to buy it. On my first ride from dealer to home was 60km and that was the first time on manual motorbike but after few engine stalls I learn how to handle this beast. When I bought it 4 months ago it was second hand and was 4000km on the clock at the moment there is 15000km on the clock and I can say straight away that whose bike is much better than any YBR125 or SYM XS125. This bike can be used as a commuter but also as a short range Tourer, because my hobby is to ride a bike at night and on farm roads : lol: I already tried to ride for a long time and successfully done 980 km in one go.

Good Points:
-No maintenance needed except oil, tyres and brakes.
-Stock can go maximum 60mph but after changing sprockets, tuning carb and changing valve clearance my bike is going maximum 89mph GPs checked.
-Best rider and bike protection if fell down, I fell down once during the ride and have been knocked off the car on parking and no scratches or injuries at all except mirror and crash bar.
-Extremely economical, in town 30-40mph 2l/100km and at 70mph 3-4l/100km
-Nice acceleration for 125 same fast as YZF125
-YBR125 engine and all parts can be fitted so good quality, easy and cheap parts.
-All other parts can be bought from Ajs website very cheap and with fast delivery.
-Beautiful exhaust sound nice and deep and at the 9krpm sport bike sound BEAUTIFUL screams.
-After 15000km Never broke down
-No oil burning

Bad Points:
-Head Light is not good enough so think about HID conversion
-Brakes are not good enough if compared with XS125 or YBR.

Advice:
-Use 10w-40 oil not 10w-30 it will give much better protection and lower engine temperature.
-Fit good tyre straight away like Pirelli because the bike needs better grip.
-Use bike at higher RPM because this gearbox doesn't like low RPM

Would you get another?
The answer is easy YES!!!

At the end I will say that don't worry about reviews or opinions and buy this bike :D Insurance is 40 pounds cheaper than YBR.

Sorry about my English but I'm learning. If got any questions comment :D

RIDE SAFE BROTHERS AND SISTERS.
