New rider looking for a 125 starter bike


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm looking for a starter standard bike, don't mind too much about make and model as I'll be moving it on within a few months and I'm based in Cardiff, UK. Looking at a budget around £1000.

 

Thanks.

Welcome. 

 

A £200 budget is unlikely to find anything that will last a week. 

Thought as much, I'm happy to go more, any thoughts a decent budget and I'll make an edit?

I'd say £1000 is the minimum you'd be looking at for something with an MOT etc :thumb:

At 1k I would look for Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha & Suzuki second hand, you might stretch your budget.

 

Becareful buying Chinese they look good but don’t necessarily have the longievity of the big 4.  You can do well but as is often is the case you get what you pay for…

Used bike market is still quite high but you should be able to get a reasonable yam ybr or Honda cbf for that and get your money back come time to sell

Get yourself onto FB and join a few groups for the bikes you are looking for, there are usually members selling bikes for very reasonable prices, and much better than taking a your chances on evilbay or gumtree :thumb:
