2011 Derbi GPR50 and GPR125 Get Racing Colors

Managing to take the 125GP racing title in 2010 with the young Spanish rider Marc Marquez, Derbi decided to celebrate the feat by launching the GPR125 and GPR50 in all-new ‘racing red’ and ‘racing grey’ paint schemes for 2011. Marquez, riding his number 93 Derbi bike, dominated the season with no less than 10 first places and 12 pole positions.

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.

The braking system consists of a 300mm disc with 4-piston radial caliper at the front, backed up by a 220mm disc at the rear.

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.
