Spanish motorcycle manufacturer, Derbi , launched a restyled motorcycle destined for dual-sport long distance riding. The Derbi Terra Adventure 125 is based on Derbi's Terra motorcycle, with some changes.
Below is the standard Terra 125:
The Terra Adventure receives dirt tires, optional panniers, hand guards, bigger wind screen, larger bash plate and bigger wheels:
At the heart of the 125cc Terra Adventure is Derbi's new 4T 4V, Euro 3 compatible engine.
The 125 cc engine has a liquid cooling system, carburetor and with its 11 liter fuel tank (includes the 2.5 liter reserve), weighs 117 kilos.
Though 11 liters will not get you very far, even on a 125 cc, 117 kilos is a nice weight to ride in the sand. The redesigned handlebar come complete with a GPS mount.
Since the bike is a 125 cc with less then 15 hp, you can ride it with a car license as long as you've had the license for 2 years (for most European countries). So anyone can follow the Dynamic Duo (Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman) on a trip through Africa (minus the support cars).
For a 125 this is quite a smart motorcycle. It looks rugged and should be able to withstand a shock or two.
So if you're not allowed to ride a big motorcycle, and still want to play in the big sandbox, here's your chance. Or use it to ride up and down the strip... but make sure there's a lot of dust and mud on it...
