Hi i passed my CBT yesterday and having just bought a helmet and gloves im ready to get the bike - thing is max spend is £1500 but want a 125cc min as im going to be doing 40mph and dual carriage ways ( just the A297,A24,A219 and A238) which are pretty quiet when i go and come back)

Looking to get a bike that looks like a vespa that kind of style not a chavvy looking bike but finding it hard - vespas are like £1800 for a 50cc and £2700 for a 125cc)

Any suggestions - need something with a good fuel tank size and good mpg

It was fun but over the winter last year it wouldnt start so i couldnt get to work which was a pain - so i sorned it and bought my clio - couldnt afford the insurance for both as i was paying £1800 for my mini and my clio is £2200 - loved my mini but the battery is flat atm so couldnt use it if i tried - amazing to drive though and way more fun than the clio which everytime i drive it feels mundane - which is why i want a scooter as i want to get to work a bit quicker and park where i work and have a little fun on the way

The mini looks good and did work before it went flat

nice one OP, just remember to get a good lock and be very aware of where you leave it, my last bike was nicked after owning it for a total of 6 hours ;-)
