Yep, its a fact about the Roaring sound of older 125s.
Waisay i love all of them equally (just don't like the rather silent tone of Piaggio & GS150)
Another thing about Deluxe & Classic (Euro2) sound is that if you remain below or up 50/60km (drive with ease i mean) ... you won't notice the sound of the bike.
But drive it hard upto 8-9 or even 10k RPM and you'll notice that the bike will actually road much more than the older 125s. (Bike's exhaust note gets Stronger and Punchier as the RPM rises)
Btw ... still can't forget that ZZZZZUUUUUUNNNNGGGGGGGGGGGG sound from last night (its not like its the first time ... maybe the last night was really enjoyable for me since i haven't gone out for this long since ... maybe last 3 years)
