New to the forum so please be gentle " />
I couldn't find anywhere better than this forum to post this question so here goes.
I was knocked off my YZF-R125 by a lady that pulled out on me without looking I've just found out its a total loss so I'm looking to replace it.
While I think its a great bike, I'm wondering whether there is anything better in the class worth considering? Please don't tell me to get a 'big bike' as I only commute a few miles across town with a maximum speed limit of 40mph.
So I have seen the MCN top ten list and readers top ten list and it looks like I may already have one of the best 125cc bikes but I also like the look of the Derbi GPR-125, Cagiva Mito and the Honda Varadero.
I don't really want to lose any performance, want something under £3k and under 3k miles. Although, I may consider something cheaper/older if there is a good reason for it. I also want something with a bit of 'big bike' presence so I don't get idiots in cars trying to race me at traffic lights after I've filtered to the front.
So, in your opinions, what should I go for?
