RM85L is way faster, and if you have expierence riding something it will be a lot more fun.

if you got the money, neighbors who disregard sound, the time to do maintenance, race, and don't mind risking a bigger injury (if and when you fall)definetly go with the RM85

get a RM85 youll be fine if you take it slowat first. it is the 85 with most low end.

you WILL get bored of the drz if you have a competitive mindset and you WILL regret buying it.

I THINK HE IS BEING A LITTLE OVER BOARD WITH ALL THAT

THE MAINTANANCE ON THE RM IS NOT BAD ESPCIALLY FOR A BEGINNER WHO WONT BE TEARING IT UP

YOU MIGHT DO A TOP END ONE IT EVERY SO OFTER LIKE ONCE A YEAR

IF YOU RACE THE HELL OUT OF IT MAYBE MORE

it depends on what u need it for, get the RM if u want to race and have a lot of low end, or get the DRZ125L if u want speed and good fun roun the trails. if u do go towards the DRZ125L make sure that it is cheaper than the KLX125L because they are the exact same bike in all ways apart from colour, may i also say to consider the CRF150R if u have the money, these are a grate bike plenty of pickup and enough speed. overall all of these bikes ae grate, but if u don't want to get bored i'd recomend the CRF150R for all situations, weather it be hittin the trails, raceing the track or just cruzin round a mates acreage. i have a KLX125L and i regret gettin it because it was fun for about 1 month and then i got bored of it, and also the KLX/DRZ 125L won't be flogged on the track by a RM85L, 1 dude has already tried againts me, but also he might not have run it in properly. o and when u do finaly get a bike don't bitch about it on the web, quit bitchen and ride i say, peace out

You have got to be kidding about a RM85 not smoking you

A drz125 is a pit bike not a MX Race bike

The guy needs a RM85 or RM/KX100 probly

If you ride alot or plan on racing get the suzuki RM85 it got a fairly broad powerband

( it doesn't have the most lowend power as people say, after riding several 85s i found the kawi has the most bottom)

The DRZ 125 will seem slow after awhile and the suspension is not adequate for the track

I think a 100 would be a better choice for this kid. They are user friendly to the vertically chalenged person yet pack a big punch. I is also a bike you will grow into. My friend who is about 5'9" and probably 150 pounds rides a KX100. He is 18 now and has been riding since he bought it new in 2003. He is just starting to think about moving up but isn't sure yet.

Have you sat on a KX100? Seat height is around 34.5. I'm 5'4" 125" and I ride one, it's a great woods bike and a whole lot of fun!

im a proud owner of an 04 drz 125, and i love it!!! i would suggest the L variant for the front disc brake and better ground clearence. If u know how to uncork a bike, the drz will do u fine. I have the snorkel out and the the screen from your air filter to your airboot out plus the spark arrestor out. She pulls my 5' 7'', 140 pound butt up some pretty scary stuff.
