  1. G'day guys, another new member from Perth here!

    Finally decided to make a start after years of daydreaming and wishing of riding a bike around town, I've got my Learners permit a few weeks ago and currently doing lessons, hopefully I'll pass my test next month and start riding around town!

    Just got one simple question (well not that simple).. as a first bike I would like a 2-stroke Italian machine, so.. would you recommend an Aprilia RS125 or the Cagiva SP525 in terms of value for money (features), resale value and after-sales support in WA.

    Cheers fellas and absolutely looking forward to getting my first bike!
  2. Welcome on board Tom and good luck with your test next month.

    If you are mechanically able to do the regular maintenance & the service required on a 2 stroke I say go for it. Otherwise think twice.
  3. welcome in Tom :)
  4. Howdy! Sorry can't give any valuable input so just passing by to say hello.
  5. Cheers for the welcome fellas :D
  6. Cheers mate, have some experience with some 2 stroke Yamahas a while back and Im always keen to learn and get hands-on with maintenance :D
