Newbie looking for a bike

Hi.

I know NOTHING about bikes and looking for something to practice on after completing my CBT.

Economical
Reliable
Inexpensive to repair
Stylish
No more than £1000

Does such a bike exist, please? I live in London.

Any advice appreciated.


Matt

On a CBT

you'll be looking for a 125, in which case the Honda CG125 / Yamaha YBR125 ticks the boxes except perhaps style (though style is personal taste and depends what you're looking for, cruiser type bikes / sporty bikes etc).

Style

is down to personal choice I suppose, but if you want something sport-ish then most of the big names (Aprilia rs 125, Yamaha yzf-r125, Honda cbr 125r) are going to be nearer the £2000 mark. If you sacrifice some reliability though you can get a Cagiva mito 125 for about the £1000 limit.
