If you a beginner, you may look at an attractively looking bike and think “I want it and I will buy it!” Unfortunately, you can get a stylish motorcycle that you will find very difficult to handle. Therefore, you should purchase your first machine taking into account its specifications and price. One of the most important figures that you should pay your attention to is the engine size. In this article, I will tell you about low cc models available on the market as well as why they are the best choice for a beginner.
Best Motorcycles for Learners with Small Engine Size (125cc)
Why Should You Choose a 125cc Motorcycle as Your First Machine?

Most 125cc machines are great for a starter because they have a relatively small engine size and their price is attractive. You should decide what you need your bike for, such as traveling around the city, enjoying the high speed at highways, discovering exciting off-road areas, etc., and pick the 125cc model that will help you get closer to your dream.

For instance, if you wish to buy a sports bike, think about starting with Yamaha YZF-R125. If you are looking for a reliable 125cc machine to travel from home to your work, than Medley 125 Piaggio may be the right option.

The other factors that you should pay your attention to are the following:
• The style of the bike;
• The seat heights;
• Riding position;
• Fuel tank capacity;
• Weight;
• Availability in your country;
• Price.
So, below you will find a few models that I have tried myself and found great bikes for a starter.

I will also give you prices for new machines, but you always have an option to purchase a used bike.
