Whats the best 125 for a tall person...

I'm just getting into bikes and looking for a 125 to learn on, and then for the comute to work. I'm 6ft 3 tall and so wondered what the best 125 was?

 

I like the Cagiva Raptor 125...

Have you sat on a trail type bike with a higher seat than the 80cm rapter?

hmm

I am 6 foot and have no problem on my RS125.
Check out the Honda Varadero 125?
They are quite big for a 125cc bike.
Depends what style you want

best learner bike advice

*bump

I tried learning on a Kawasaki 125cc once long ago. I'm going for my test again this year, but what I remember from back then was that because my knee height was above horizontal it felt like I was riding the bike while standing on my tip toes, which made balance very difficult - so if i can get a bike with the pegs forward and a higher seat, this time around hopefully i'll get all the way to teh test.

125cc for Giants

I know this post is 2 years old , but the topic keeps cropping up for big newbies . Try a Supermoto or Trailbike with an 890 mm seat height . A decent Importer is Superbyke of Bristol .They do the RMZ 125 which is 11.3 hp with a claimed speed of 65 mph .Their Supermoto is the RMR 125 with 9.6 hp and claimed speed of 62 mph . Both have the 890 mm seat heights .

Check that these machines are on the Approved List for sitting the Test .
Another promising machine is the Zontes `Tiger ` 125, to be imported in 2011 by the Baotian Scooter Importer .

CBF125

Big fan of the CBF! I was very comfortable on mine, and I'm considering getting another for while I'm at university :smile
