Benelli VZ 125i Review 2024

The Benelli VZ 125i is one of the most powerful underbone that has come out from the designers of Benelli in a long time. The bike that has one of the most aggressive looks across its 125cc lineup in Malaysia, the scooter also marks comfort and performance to its buyers. Interestingly, the styling of the bike is easily recognizable as it adapts to a streamlined look that is mated to its premium design, ensuring proper attention to the vehicle. Further, the unique colour blend used in the bike adds to its overall aggressiveness. The wide stance of this scooter gives the rider a feeling of a cruiser and its sporty handling hardly leaves the impression of a scooter. 

Designed with practicality in mind, the VZ 125i is also the most affordable offering from the Italian automakers forte. Overall, the bike is indeed a reliable machine to use on long drives, thanks to the ideal seating position and reliable suspension that adds to the joy of riding.

Benelli VZ 125i Design

Talking of its exterior, the Benelli VZ 125i is a reliable offering that offers the sharpest of looks for its segment. Being a 125cc machine, the bike is styled to match the strong styling statement that can be witnessed among its larger competitors (150cc-200cc). Coming with an ideal ride height of 1820mm, the bike keeps up with a fair height for riders of average size. Further, the bike comprises a centrally-mounted LED light that ensures lighting up a viable distance on the streets and the highways. Complementing the sleek, appealing headlight are two similarly styled indicators. Further, right below the headlights, viewers can notice the beak-shaped mud-guard on the vehicle. 

Moving to the rear, elements of a sharp design are continued. The scooter shows an elevated rear (at around 30 degrees), topped with a sleek and triangular-shaped tail light. Interestingly, Benelli has also done some revamp around the exhaust piper as it dawns a dual-ring exhaust with a proper cover to add on to its styling. 

Talking of its features, the Benelli VZ 125i does justice to its affordable price tag. The scooter comprises an array of features with a beautifully designed digital console that comprises a pass Switch, side reflectors, engine check warning, situated close to the reach of the rider. Interestingly, the automaker has introduced the scooter with a street riding mode (something completely new for a 125cc mill). Further, the scooter also highlights side wings to add to its list of features. 

Some other features of the VZ 125i include side wings, a dual stepped seat for improved comfort levels, and a chine body frame to add to the durability of the build under extreme conditions. 

VZ 125i Ride & Handling

Coming to the handling of this great bike, the Benelli VZ 125i handles well and provides practicality to the rider. The bike provides convenience at steep turns and can be good with speed on the highways. The suspension over the scooter does its job but cannot really be experimented over rough terrains. Further, its convenient riding position also adds to the overall comfort that the vehicle adds to the rider. The ride & handling experience of the scooter is reliable.

Benelli VZ 125i Engine & Fuel Consumption

Talking of the powertrain, the Benelli VZ 125i rides on an air-cooled EFI 124 cc engine that is able to churn out an appealing power output of 8.4 hp at 7500 rpm. Further, the engine gives out an appealing 9.2 Nm of peak torque. The automaker has decided to pair the mill with a Variable Speed transmission gearbox that is able to give triple-digit speeds. 

VZ 125i Braking & Safety

The braking of the Benelli VZ 125 is managed by a dual-piston caliper single disc in the front and a drum brake at the rear. Further, the bike provides users with improved comfort over a kayaba suspension on its rear and telescopic fork for its front. 

Benelli VZ 125i Verdict

The Benelli VZ 125i is one of the most affordable offerings under the brand. Considering the price tag and the features that the bike provides (notable mention of a sports mode), the vehicle can be a good option for everyday use within the city.
