    Recommend a good 125cc for under £1500

    Been riding a Piaggio fly 100cc for a while now and im going to upgrade in jan/feb to a motorbike

    Ive had my heart set on a Honda cbr rw - but ive been told as a 5ft11 man im too big for it

    So i need recommendations - never ridden a manual before but going to be teaching myself around my local sidestreets before i actually go on the main roads

    Any ideas

    Always fancied getting myself a secondhand one of these, meant to be good fun.

    sorry a honda cbr norm:thumbsup:

    It depends on what you want the bike for, the CBR 125 is a great bike. It's a Honda so it won't go wrong! Can't see the problem with you being 5"11', it's not a mini moto. Totally ignore the VanVan, it is tiny.
    If you want to look good then go for a Cagiva Mito, looks like a baby Ducati 916 which is THE bike of all time!

    However it is Italian so it will break down at some stage.

    Aprilias are very cool, RS125 has been winning grand prix since I was (almost) a boy. The Tuono 125 is fun!

    These are 3 great bikes, but being Italian it is style over function. Avoid cheap chinese bikes, they are cheap for a reason!

    The Yamaha YZR 125 is pretty reliable and looks like it's bigger brothers.
