I'm about to do my CBT and I'm looking at buying a cruiser (or, as close as you can get to a cruiser with a 125 engine). The YBR 125 custom seems to tick all the boxes, cheap to insure; able to hit 60 more comfortably than most and a fuel gauge. I'm considering buying it new on credit and paying it off after 6 months before deciding whether to move on to something bigger.
The used market (MCN, autotrader, ebay) doesn't strike me as very appealing, I'm based near Glasgow and I can't find too many used 125s near there in the style I'm going for. The ones I can find aren't that much cheaper and I don't get a full warranty.
I already have a car and I'd just be using the bike for getting to the shops and riding for fun. Would I be making the right choice by buying new or is the used market less of a minefield than it seems? Also, are there any bikes that might fit the bill better than the YBR?
Thank you very much.
