Featured Listing: 2006 MetraKit Pre GP125

2006 MetraKit Pre GP125 L Side

Although they’re often overshadowed by bigger, badder, modern superbikes, or vintage racebikes with history and links to famous riders, bikes like this Metrakit PreGP 125 are where it all starts for riders of the future. A tool they’ll use to start writing their own stories.

2006 MetraKit Pre GP125 Engine

If you’re not familiar with MetraKit, they’re a Spanish company that’s been making scooter, moped, and mini-moto hop-up parts for road and track since 1976. More recently, they’ve branched out, building a variety of complete racing motorcycles with powerplants from established manufacturers.

The Pre GP125 was introduced in 2005 as a step up from smaller mini-moto machines like the YSR50. It features 17″ wheels and is motivated by a modified, two-stroke 124.8cc Husqvarna engine that puts 32bhp through a six-speed gearbox. That reliable powerplant is hung within a tubular steel frame and aluminum side-plates and the complete package weighs in at 176 lbs dry.

But don’t assume this bike’s relatively tiny powerplant makes it a “learner bike,” unless you mean “learning to whip your buddies at the track.” They pack two-stroke punch into a featherweight package, providing racebike handling for riders looking to cut their teeth before moving on to bigger, faster machines. Keep in mind: these are racing motorcycles designed for teenagers moving up from mini-moto classes and aren’t really scaled for larger riders. So if you’re built like a jockey or don’t mind folding yourself up like a contortionist to fit on board, something like this should provide plenty of thrills for track day or race fun.

2006 MetraKit Pre GP125 R Side

With a Buy It Now price of $5,500, this looks like a great way to pick up a ready-to-race GP bike for a relative song. As is often the case with genuine race bikes, this one comes with a wealth of spares and upgraded parts that should help keep the little two-stroke running, including several sets of bodywork in case you happen to subscribe to the philosophy that “rubbin’ is racin” or have more courage than talent. Although I understand that lightweight 125’s often fare better in crashes than larger bikes as they tend to skim along instead of tumbling…
