  1. Hi ya everyone , been out of the bike game for a few years and just waiting to by a new bike as I'm finally getting rid of ford after buying the new family car . Looking at a small CC bike to avoid the rego and insurance costs one dollar per cc I'll save money this way and I'm short as hell so something small so I can touch the ground would be good

    Just trying to choose between the YZF R125 or the CBR125R
  2. Welcome :) - noob i be too - first thing you will hear from most is avoid a 125cc. End of the day its your choice. but the costs for my vtr250 (rego/insurance) are similar to the costs of my wifes cbr125r. Not a huge difference, but there are many factors age, experience etc that can impact those figures. As for the CBR125r, lets just say my wife is a petite girl and after 6 months of riding to and from work on the cbr125r, she wants to upgrade to a 250 due to the so called lack of power she feels. :)
  3. welcome to NR,

    if u thinking abt 125s.. eva thought about Aprilia rs 125??? good 2 stroke bike.. which will keep you riding more & more,,

  4. Thanks Pgriz , yeah I am only looking for small commuting , not worried about speed etc
    And I'm short enough most 125cc I'll need lowering kits

    Speedy300zx - the aprilia was what I wanted and have had before but the nearest place willing to service it is about 1200 km away so it is more a forced choice thing between the Honda or yamaha .

    I really love the KTM 125 duke . But I was disappointed to hear it will not be part of the 2012 lineup
