As mentioned already Mugens have the exhaust ports AND HPP valves/guides placed 1,5mm higher compared to stock cylinders. The other ports are raised only about 1mm. Compression is like stock (so rather low). In the last 25 years i have seen many 125s

No-as mentioned everyone believes it was about lighter weight but that wasn't the case. But it was much stiffer than the stock Cromoly frame and this translated in a much better feel/ride. Earlier this year i weighed my '90 VRP together with my ultralight

Liked a comment on the item 1989 VRP MUGEN Honda CR 125 - 1st aluminium chassis !! 10/31/2015 2:19 AM

This is Not a 'crazy one' - it's something very, very special - and well beyond the usual 'bling mobile' . I, and a lot of others here, have followed 'LuckyNinos' many posts on his VRP(s - he's got a few of them!) in the Old School Moto section. Thank you Nino, for sharing your wonderful bikes with us.

Thank you for...more
