Hi guys, as the title suggests I'm unsure of what my first bike should be, and seeing as none of my family or friends are motorcyclists, i figured this place is probably the best place to ask for advice. I've been looking around and it seems that the honda cbr125r maybe my perfect 1st bike - its cheap, seems reliable, it won't kill me, and i won't feel bad when i inevitably drop/scratch/crash it. (and sadly im extremely superficial with bikes and love anything that looks/imititates a sports bike) Only negative things I've been reading about the bike is that it seems to lack power and that I will probably 'get sick of it' (how can you get sick of riding a motorbike? :S). Anyway, my main use of the bike if i get it, would be pretty much just mainly inner city/suburbian riding, and if i build up enough confidence maybe riding to uni. I'm about 175 cm and weigh 75ish kgs. So my big question is (being an L plater) does someone like me, who intends to ride the motorbike around inner city/suburbs, need to worry about power (or the lack of?). I would've thought that a lack of power may even be a good thing as it'll allow me to focus on selecting right gears, scanning, buffering etc. Anyway, I'm completely open to any opinions you guys may have regarding this whole power thing, so feel free to post it, even if it seems useless to you. Thanks in advance. P.s: Being a uni student (and under 25), my budget would probably be around the 5k mark max (incl. insurance hopefully), and a cbr125r seems to fit into this category?
