Heres a question i figured i would leave to the MD's that have bike experience.

Honda CBR 125 or a Honda NSR 125

Which one is better, and which should i buy?

The CBR is generally more expensive but also not rated as good as the NSR.

So i'm not sure which i should ask mammy to buy.

Come on, which one!

Standard rs125 are generally ok but like all 2 strokes as soon as you tweak them they will hole pistons and do bearings in,if you are after performance go with a 2 stroke but the cbrs aint that slow (especially when you own its bigger brother the 600)

I'm on a VFR800 now, but I remember my Honda 125 days (I had a green CB125, nothing like todays CBR), crouched over the tank hoping for just one more mile per hour!!! Are they limited to 12 horses still? That rule came in when many of the 125 4 strokes didn't make that much anyway.

Go for the Honda, I have had a couple.

I had two CR 250's (off roaders) one after the other. Two of the best bikes I have ever owned.

The last one was a 1997 model and was my pride and joy until some low life decided that his need for it was greater than mine. It was only six months old and barely used [:(!]

Never had another since.

And Get round mammy into buying you the bike+ decent Skid Lid + decent pair of leather gloves + waterproofs+ boots etc etc and full leathers with kevlar inserts when you move onto something bigger an better [:)][:p][:D][:D][:D]
Seriously though metalforever, never ride without your gloves, as if some numpty fetches you off, it's normally your hands that cop it.

Mammy's agreed to buy me a bike. she said i should be able to get it by the end of july.

Now after doing some research... i've decided two things. No bike is perfect.... and a 2 stroke engine sounds pathetic.

Ok, the NSR 125 has a two stroke engine (bad point) but it also has little mirrors that don't look stupid.

The cbr 125 has big stupid looking mirrors but a 4 stroke...

and then the aprilia rs 125 just has everything but im sure it still ahs a two stroke...

why am i always confused when it comes to expensive decisions [:(]
