I have the 2012 ssr 125cc A-1. For the money u can't beat this bike. I have only had the bike for three months now. After doing all the prep work and breaking in the engine I can say that I am very happy with this bike. You have to go in knowing that for less than $800 u are not getting a bike to take to a track and start jumping. However, for wheelies and trail riding this bike is perfect!!! I decided to put in an adjustable fast ace rear shock with a 250lb spring. ( Im 190lbs). Cost me around 120 shipped and out of all the mods I have done this one made the biggest difference. All in all I would say that this bike is well worth the money and I feel like the upgrades it comes with compared to the base model ssr 125cc were well thought out and all important ones for giving this bike more durability. Quick list of upgrades from factory list. Aluminum a style swing-aluminum skid plate-better hubs-aluminum handle bars. Great buy for the cash!!!!
