Motorcycle insurance costs are an important consideration for any bike buyer. That's why MCN is highlighting some of the best cheap-to-insure motorcycles out there. This time it's the Derbi Cross City 125.                   

Insurance group: 3
Engine: 124cc single
Power: 12bhp
Top speed: 65mph 
Weight: 110kg                        

The Derbi Cross City is an off-road influenced learner bike that manages the three-card trick of being stylish, novice-friendly AND affordable. It may not be great for travelling at high speeds, but it's the perfect tool for commuting through town and looking cool.

Dynamically, the Derbi Cross City has all the handling traits you’d expect of an upright, semi-dirt bike styled machine:  a novice-friendly, slim and lightweight upright riding position allied to wide bars which make steering light and easy. Mix into that reasonable Pirelli Scorpion tyres and an effective front disc brake and you end up with a fairly idiot-proof handler that’s a joy to hustle round.

The Derbi Cross City  scores as an object of desire, too. It might not have much (no fairing, wire wheels, fairly basic spec) but the frame is a pukka (albeit steel) twin beam jobbie, matched by an equally mouth-watering tapered swing arm, there are twirlingly eye-catching brake discs front and rear plus better than everage suspension.
