Can I get anyones opinion on these two bikes?

  1. Im in the market for a cheap little 125cc paddock basher and Ive narrowed it down to 2 possible choices:

    the 125cc Defiant Motorsports (?) Dirt Bike, Zongshen engine

    or the

    Orion 125cc Thumpster, DUCAR engine

    They both come to around the same price once you factor in freight charges.
    Which one would be better? bearign in mind that this is my first bike and all....

    Thanks in advance
  2. zongshen make better motors

    remember there is more to the bike than motor alone
  3. yeah I figured as much (the being more to bikes than the motor that is)
    But I thought that of the mile long list of specs that they both have, that'd be the one to choose for the question...

    However Im new to all this and any tips on what specs to look for would be greatly appreciated!

    Ive only just signed up to this forum and Im doing some reading, so yeah, i know my questions have probably been asked and answered by many...
    Chances are I'll find them within the next hour or so...
