Which Motorbike to get?

    A friend of mine is selling his Honda varadero 125 - with 8k on the clock and its an 05 plate - for £1500

    But just been looking at a used Honda CBF125 - 09 plate 1.5k on the clock for £1699

    Just looking for some advice - the cbf has no rev counter but the varadero has a choke

    Which one should i get ?


    p.s this is my first motorbike been riding a piaggio fly 100 since may

    The cbf should also have a choke. Having a rev counter shouldnt really matter as you never look at it anyway. I'd choose the varadero - disc brakes and more power

    Varadero's are brilliant :thumbsup:
    We had the XL1000 & she was fantastic!!
    If you get this months edition of Ride Magazine there is a 3 page spread on the 125 Varadero on page 24 :thumbsup:

    Ride them both and see which one fits you best.
    Either one of those looks OK and represent much better value for money than any of the cheap Chinese bikes that are knocking around.
