Zontes Motorcycles ZT125-U1 2022

According to Zontes Motorcyces

An outstanding adventure-sport styled 125cc motorcycle, the Zontes ZT125-U1 delivers performance to the limit of learner legal regulations in the UK. A perfect blend of style, performance and technology. 

A keyless entry system delivers added security and convenience. Keep the transponder fob about your person or luggage and the motorcycle can be unlocked and started when you are within 1.5 metres. The bike can be stopped and locked without removing the transponder. Without the transponder, the motorcycles’ steering lock cannot be removed, nor can it be started.

User friendly controls adorn the handlebar switchgear with LED backlighting for clear night-time use.

A simple press of a button toggles between ECO and Sport modes to suit your ride. Mode selection is clearly visible on the digital display.

Cast and CNC machined in house, the all-aluminium cylinder operates without a liner, which facilitates larger waterways to channel heat away more efficiently. Improved heat dissipation enhances both performance and engine durability.

The dual-channel Bosch ABS system allows the rider to calmly control the motorcycle in any unexpected situation. The ABS system brings confidence under heavy braking, especially in adverse weather and on unstable road surfaces.

Lightweight rims with side pull spokes ensures good impact resistance and enables use of tubeless tyres. And they look stunning…

300mm front brake discs provide huge stopping power and a linear feeling under braking.

Automotive grade LED lights projected from an aluminium die-cast shell, produces outstanding illumination field of vision. The lamp unit is designed to dissipate heat to prolong LED life and reduce luminaire decay.

A centrally mounted mono shock softens the ride whilst delivering excellent control. Filled with high pressure nitrogen to ensure stability over long journeys and set with a small amount of pre-load, the rear suspension offers excellent comfort with reduced rider fatigue.

Big-block adventure styled tyres from CST operate exceptionally well in all weather conditions. Reinforced tyre carcasses prove resilient to punctures and run tubeless.

Discreetly under-slung, the full stainless steel exhaust system is designed for a long service life, with the exit pipe shrouded in a cool-touch cover to avoid burning you stylish riding kit.

Running a high compression ratio of 12.5:1, the engine delivers 10.8kW @9000rpm. This puts the engine output and bike performance just within the limits of L Plate use in the UK. Another important feature of a high compression engine is low fuel consumption, an increasingly relevant feature in today’s World.

To achieve this Zontes utilise the latest materials and technologies available to design a class beating engine.

Often seen in larger capacity, high performance models, Zontes introduce a slipper clutch to their latest 125cc models. The movement feels lighter in the hand and if a gear change is mis-timed so as engine and road speed differ hugely, the slipper clutch softens the blow. Unintentional wheel lock ups are avoided, mechanical shock lessened, and rider comfort and safety enhanced.
