I'm looking for a new 125 to get me prepared for when I eventually upgrade to something along the lines of a zx6, r6 etc...
My bike's my only form of transport so something reliable would be nice. So far after a bit of shopping around i'm looking at an Aprilia rs125 (2007, 5k miles, £1500)
Alternatively I could pick up a Yamaha yzf r125 for around the same price with 10k miles.
Or last but not least there's a Yamaha tzr125 (1993, ??miles, recent rebuild, £600)
All the above would be getting checked out by a mechanic friend before I part with any of my hard-earned.
What are tzr's like for reliability? so far i've not read good things about the rs but damnit the thing excites me more than the others and are they really that bad if it's looked after well?
My only biking experience until now has been on a scooter so I need to learn how to use a clutch, should this factor at all into my decision?
My heart screams Aprilia but my head says Yamaha
