I've got a mate who's in a bit of a situation with a job he has to do for Uni for the next 40 weeks. Basically he's got a job that's paying him $300 a week and costing him $190 a week in fuel (200km round trip every day in a thirsty car) just to get to and from. At the moment he basically can't save anything (most weeks he's going backwards) and he's been thinking about a bike to save on fuel. Basically what he wants to know is what would be the cheapest possible motorcycle he could buy that is learner legal (probably a 250), will happily cruise at 100 km/h (no CT110s ) without being unsafe or destroying the motor, will be reasonably reliable and won't cost him a fortune in parts. Any suggestions as to what models he should be looking at and what he should set as a safe minimum spend?
