    I love the Idea of R125’s built and fairings to be input in the R15.. Because R125 is much sleekier and gorgeous. I hope that the New breed R15 would also be available in the Philippines. We have R15 here but no signs of R125. Maybe it’s not possible to have the R125, But this new R15? Man I’m gonna buy this one at all cost.
