Zongshen Cab 125 Next Generation review

Hermaphrodite beings

Scooter or motorcycle? The answer is simple and simple: a bit of both. Far East holidaymakers are familiar with the countless four-stroke mopeds with leg shields and deep access that scurry around in Asia, all of which are offshoots of that
Ancestor that Soiricho Honda had presented in 1958.

Many manufacturers have copied the million dollar thing or are still making it; every Chinese motorcycle factory has one or more “pirated copies” of it in their range.
In Germany, the undemanding Honda fifties “Super Cub” was against Kreidler, Zündapp in the sixties & No chance, so a larger displacement version was never offered. But
Today, a modern copy of the four-stroke economy vehicle, hopes importer Fritz Röth, who also offers a Mokick version, has market opportunities. His
Asian bread-and-butter machines are currently being made at Zongshen, China’s
well-known manufacturer and recently
even contract partners of Piaggio and Harley-Davidson.
The lying ohc engine of the Cab 125 starts either by kick or by pressing a button. He is ventilated by carburetor and sounds robust, the gear selection of the four gear steps is semi-automatic with foot switch, the idle is up. One step on the shift lever disconnects the centrifugal clutch ?? also after foolish ones-
rem Honda prototype? when changing gears
additionally mechanically. Honda Dax and Monkey experts can dose them almost like a conventional hand clutch with the ideal setting. With the Cab 125, this works almost even better than the original, because the four-plate clutch does not work on the crankshaft, but rather on an intermediate shaft with low wear and tear.
Thanks to 17-inch wheels and a motorcycle-
moderate weight distribution drives the Zongshen accurate and handy, although the spring elements respond only moderately and are laid out limp. As with the Honda original, the chain is fortunately completely encapsulated, the simple reset mechanism of the side stand has no ignition breaker. The disc brakes with double-piston calipers work acceptably, but without a noticeable pressure point. On the rear one, a short cable pull activates the brake pump attached to the rear wheel.
The high-torque single cylinder is not free from vibrations, but consumes little. One full tank of the 3.5-liter container under the lockable, uncomfortably stepped bench seat is enough for the Cab 125 for more than 150 kilometers. Inexperienced people should always use the cockpit first
Have an eye on the integrated gear indicator, because the gearshift works according to the principle of rotation: if you step further after fourth gear, you end up in neutral again, the next foot movement is followed by first gear, which can have serious consequences. GMO
