Based in Southwick, just west of Brighton on England’s southern coast, Sinnis Motorcycles has been developing and selling small-displacement two-wheelers since 2005. An extensive dealer network in the British Isles sells the inexpensive motorcycles—mostly displacing 125cc for A1-licensed riders. The new 2021 Sinnis Terrain T125 is the company’s latest adventure bike, and a significant step up from the previous Terrain 125.With 17-inch wheels, the off-road capability of the 331-pound Terrain T125 will be limited. However, the motorcycle is ready for adventure touring with a 3.7-gallon fuel capacity and a luggage capacity of 66.5 liters. The top box and panniers are standard equipment, as are extensive crash bars (perfect for newer riders), linked braking, and LED lighting. All that cargo space also makes the Terrain T125 an excellent candidate for commuting duty.
The liquid-cooled DOHC single puts out 12.7 horsepower, a half-horse more than the previous Terrain 125, which has an air-cooled, two-valve motor and a five-speed transmission. The new T125 boasts a six-speed transmission and sends the power to an O-ring final drive, giving the T125 a top speed of 56 mph.The 2021 Sinnis Terrain T125 has traditional ADV styling, with a beak below the headlight and a windscreen above. There is seating for two, with wide footpegs for both the rider and passenger.The dash features an analog-style tachometer, matched with a blue-tinged LCD panel. Readouts include a large mph display, as well as a fuel gauge and gear position indicator.There is currently no US distribution of Sinnis Motorcycles.2021 Sinnis Terrain T125 SpecsENGINE
Hello everyone and welcome once again to Ultimate Motorcycling’s weekly Podcast—Motos and Friends.
My name is Arthur Coldwells.
This week’s Podcast is brought to you by Yamaha motorcycles. Discover how the YZF-R7 provides the perfect balance of rider comfort and true supersport performance by checking it out at YamahaMotorsports.com, or see it for yourself at your local dealer.
This week’s episode features Senior Editor Nic de Sena’s impressions of the beautiful new Harley-Davidson Low Rider ST that is loosely based around the original FXRT Sport Glide from the 1980s. Hailing from The Golden State, these cult-status performance machines became known as West Coast style, with sportier suspension, increased horsepower, and niceties including creature comforts such as a tidy fairing and sporty luggage.
In past episodes you might have heard us mention my best friend, Daniel Schoenewald, and in the second segment I chat with him about some of the really special machines in his 170 or so—and growing—motorcycle collection. He’s always said to me that he doesn’t consider himself the owner, merely the curator of the motorcycles for the next generation.
Yet Daniel is not just a collector, but I can attest a really skilled rider. His bikes are not trailer queens, they’re ridden, and they’re ridden pretty hard. Actually, we have had many, many memorable rides on pretty much all of the machines in the collection at one time or another.
From all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
