When it comes to learner bikes there seems to be an unwritten rule about the kinds of machines you can have. It can be managable and novice-friendly (like the Yamaha YBR125); it can be snazzy and racy (like Aprilia's RS125); or it can be cheap. Unfortunately it can never be all three.

With the new Derbi Cross City 125, maybe that has changed. The Spanish newcomer seems to be ideal. It's upright, light and powered by a straightforward four-stroke single and with its minimalist, semi supermotard styling makes it undeniably cool. Best of all its just £1899 which makes the bike temptingly affordable.

The keyword so far has been maybe so we recruited two MCN staff members from opposite ends of the learner spectrum. Watch our video to see how Adam and Sarah got on after a day with the Cross City 125.
