    Try some 500 or 600s. There are loads to choose from and they can make some good starter bikes.
    Also, the MT-07 is a good crack and not too unsafe for newish bikers.

    Ah, might try the Yamaha MT-07 anyway, just in case I get on with it, thanks.

    Dont get a 250 or 300 IF you are a fairly confident rider who likes the thrill of raw speed as you will def grow out of it quickly.

    Hi April, at the end of the day you need to get out there and try them all that are within your price range.
    Dont worry about imposing on dealers to take their bikes out as it still might give you insights into a future bike.

    Bike riding is mostly about how you feel on a bike. For me its a combination of:


    • Value
    • Ability to scare me at the higher end of acceleration if I need/want to go there
    • Safety features to save me when something goes wrong
    • Dealer coverage
    • Reliability


    When you test ride a bike for an hour, you will know if you have to have it or not.

    You can have a shit load of fun on a 250/300 and you have less chance of being fined for speeding.
    When I originally started out on this motorbiking lark I was looking ahead at the Yamaha R3 !

    That R3 looks mint. About 4700 quid apparently. YOu could get an MT-07 for 500 quid more.

    CBR500R might be worth looking at April.
    Just try a load of them and, like the glass slipper in Cinderella, one wuill fit perfectly and you will ride happily ever after! :D

    R3 it a top looking bike. Will be good for 'fun' I imagine.

    If you want a sensible really easy to ride bike then all the japos and especially Honda will offer up a lot of good options.
