    If you're absolutely decided that you want one of these 2 bikes then I'd suggest the NSR over the RS.

    Are you specifically looking for a stroker? If not, and you want something with sporty looks then maybe you could go for a CBR125?

    Ideally, if you want everyday transport then I'd suggest a CG or YBR.

    i did look at the CBR 125 but it just isnt for me. Cheers for the info though. I was kinda turned towards the nsr anyway. Any more info about these bikes. Why the NSR over RS anyways?

    CG125 or use the instructors bike for 2 pound a hour more, then purchase a real bike (i.e a 400/600/750/1000+) once you've passed.

    I'd personally go for the Honda over the Aprilia due to reliability. Two strokes will never be the most reliable, but I think that the NSR is more of a proven engine than the RS. You may be able to pick a NSR up cheaper than a RS (don't quote me on that; I'm not up on NSR and RS used prices!).

    Is there any reason you don't want to go down the route of learning via an intstructor then buying a bike after you pass your test, like Insane says?

    Well I will be but I want my own bike to get me going and get loads of practice in, plus its another form of transport when Im learning. I would prefer my own bike to be honest.

    For day-to-day transport I would seriously consider a CG over a NSR. Get the miles under your belt and then go get a bigger bike when you've got your test. If you drop the NSR (and I really hope you don't) it'll cost a fortune to replace the fairing.

    I can provide you with details of a bike instructor if you want, too.

    Bryan Rogers. His number is 479261. If you want, he has a CG you can use.
