The title was the twenty-first world title for the Spanish brand that now has nine Manufacturer's world titles and twelve Rider's world titles.
Taken separately, the GPR125 is powered by an advanced liquid-cooled 4-stroke 4v engine developing 15 hp at 9,250 rpm and, according to the manufacturer, boasts the kind of specification you’d normally only see on big capacity sports bikes.
In addition, the GPR125 also comes with a MotoGP-style multifunction LCD, Derbi GPR125 instrument panel and underslung exhaust, 41mm USD forks and a dual beam aluminum frame. The sharp tail unit boasts an LED rear light as well as removable indicators and number plate bracket for track or race use.
The Derbi GPR125 retails at £3,819 (OTR).
On the other hand, the GPR50 2T boasts practically the same class-leading spec as the GPR125, only that it comes powered by a 50cc liquid-cooled 2-stroke engine that develops 8.5 horsepower at 10,000 rpm.
The 4-piston front brake caliper remains, as does the 41mm USD fork, dual beam aluminium frame and MotoGP-style digital clocks.
