Braking is provided by a 300mm disc gripped by a two-piston radial brake caliper in the front and a single-piston caliper type in the back.

An LCD digital screen incorporates the revolutions counter, the digital speedometer, fuel gauge, total and partial mileage counter and a clock.

The Senda DRD125 4S is built on a frame from Derbi's Terra dual-sport bike.The new Senda DRD125 is a specialist high-performance motard built around the Terra 125 steel chassis, modified to withstand the demands of off-road riding.

The rear features a link-type progressive suspension with long travel shock absorbers. Braking is provided by radial caliper front brakes, with wave discs on the Enduro version for additional performance on extreme off-road conditions.

The Senda DRD 125 relies on the power of the single-cylinder 125cc liquid-cooled engine, fed by carburetor. According to Derbi, this four-stroke cycle and a four valve cylinder engine offers 15 hp.
