One of the most interesting features of the Royal Alloy GP 125 is the dual disc brake setup. The front and rear both have discs. These scooters are very much stable on the road. The scooter’s exhaust is also very exciting. Just like the Royal Alloy GT 125, the Royal Alloy GP 125 also has a very punchy amd strong exhaust sound.

The Royal Alloy GP 125 has a very premium seat with under-seat fuel tank. The rear section of the scooter also has a carrier rack and a very clean look. The scooter comes with a front storage. The storage is not as much as most of the competitions, but it is enough.
The Royal Alloy GP 125 comes with a nimble body, which is intended to squeeze through the hectic city traffic. The weight of the scooter is around 148kg, which is mostly because of the full metal body. The weight allows the scooter to be stable at high speeds, and the metal body protects the internals of the scooter itself. This scooter comes with a fuel capacity of around 11liters, which is more than most scooters out there and enough for the regular commute and even small tours outside town.
The length, width, and height of the Royal Alloy GP 125 are 1870mm, 620mm, and 1115mm. It also has a low saddle-height of about 770mm; at this seat height, anyone above the height of 5’2” can easily ride it. The scooter also has an average ground clearance of 330mm, which is more than enough for Bangladeshi speedbumps. The wheelbase is only of 1390mm, which is quite a lot for a scooter and it is also one of the reasons for the stability of the scooter.

The Royal Alloy GP 125 is not at all a forgiving scooter. This scooter is for the ones who have some experience with bikes or scooters. This weight of the scooter will make it a bit exhausting to control in heavy traffic. This makes it more suitable for people who will use it for basic commute, e.g home-office, university-home, and will use it for the occasional out of town rides. For the people who want a scooter for being on the saddle the whole day this should not be an option. This scooter will appeal to the people who wants a scooter with a retro look.
