What 125cc Starter Bike To Get At 17?

Postby fabrice » Tue Oct 10, 2017 12:17 am

Im currently 15 and am aware of the new bike law coming 2013. I will be riding from my house to college for around 2 years and then off to uni by then ill be probably upgrading to a ninja 300 or remain on the 125cc for longer. I was wondering what 125cc bike i should get at 17. I will use this bike to go to college and travel around the neighbourhood ocassionaly. I was thinking about the new yamaha r125 or the ktm duke but heard the clutch is a bit annoying and makes the tire lock, anyways a quote on the insurance would be benificial! Thanks and cant wait o get my first bike :)

From what I have been reading on the net, the Yamaha is putting out about 10hp less than the KTM.

Just on hp alone I would pick the KTM.

The new KTM is also counter balanced, which decreased vibration greatly.

You also have to consider, which dealer is closer.
Bikes brake down and need normal maintenance.
If the Yamaha dealer is a block a way and the KTM dealer is 60 miles away, it might be better for you to choose the Yamaha dealership.

If all things are equal, get the KTM. http://www.motorcycle.com/manufacturer/k...
