good learner bike

friend is looking to get a fisrt learner bike ideal 4 stroke? anyone?

a 125 or a big bike?

CBR125 - Loved my learner bike.

125 MATE

I learnt on a Yamaha TW 125. Suzuki Van Vans are pretty much the same I think. They feel a bit bigger than CGs.

love my CBR 125 too

I had an imported trial, loved it, was a great riding position, loved mine… only sold it because it kept falling apart spent more time rebuilding it than riding it.

I vote for the CBR 125 as well. A bit annoying changing gears all the time but good fun if you can afford one. Otherwise the new Honda CG 125 looks ok too.

Gilera Cougar 125 here.

If I was a learner wanting to buy I’d check out the XT125X as well for a mini slice of supermoto street cred. No street cred but mini Varadero is supposed to be pretty good.

the cbr is very “thin” bike tho its a nice 125 but there are nicer “cheaper” ones out there,

aprilia rs 125 ( geared)

gilera dna 125 ( twist n go)

cagiva mito 125 ( wicked bike very nice!)

honda cbr 125 ( very thin)
