By "learner"

do you mean 125cc bike, or 1st post-DAS bike?

If you mean 125, then the Honda CG. For post-test bikes, probably a Bandit or Kwak ER6.

hyosung gt125 comet

hyosung gt125 comet (naked one) ran one thru winter and ran like a dream not a problem at all electrics and all top notch (which surprised me considering all the negative stuff said) plus looks better than the crap looking cg's and that and a far better engine and second hand you can get a good bike for not much money

Aprilia RS 125 2 stroke version.

I used to get 115mph out of my old one, has much bigger tyres than the rest, handles amazingly well, fills you with confidence and looks bigger than a 125. You'll quickly become bored of a bike that only does 65mph at a push and you wont have any power to overtake anything so you'll have to sit behind cars.

i would

recommend a yamaha ybr125 custom. Furthermore, I would recommend you buy mine! Seriously, I would indeed recommend one - so easy to ride. Ready to move to something bigger myself, so JustBe makes a very valid point. But, I'd argue that whichever 125 you go for, you'll want to move to something bigger when you pass DAS - I know I do!
