Frosty's getting a CBR125R

So, I just put a deposit on one of these, in white. They're being released in May.....estimated @ $3-3500 CAD including gear. This will be my first bike and I think it's an excellent deal for a starter bike.





Can't wait!

Re: Frosty's getting a CBR125R

my first road bike was a gsxr 600 and it had plenty of power but still maintained a controlable feel. its all about learning what not to do on a bike that will keep you from killing yourself (its more worryin bout dumb perople we share the road with), if youv never been on a bike befor i strongly suggest a dirt bike for obviouse reasons(no cars to worry about while you learn) then step up to a 600 after your comfortable. IMO

Re: Frosty's getting a CBR125R

you are going to be soooo bored, so quickly!!! my first 2 wheeler was a 1000 (R1). Though I don't suggest that be the route for most people on a starter bike, it worked for me! Seriously though, you will want to kill yourself from boredom on a 125!
