Default first ride first bike, rouser 200

hi,
I am a first time rider, and is yet to ride a bike this week. I have ask how to operate an AC bike and I know how to ride it. My question is , should I go for a Rouser 200 which is a hand clutch type or just stick to the WAve 125. Though the later is cheap but the rouser is better looking and I may go with it for a longer time than the 125. Do you think I can easily learn this bike and still be safe on the road with it. is it heavy to handle since I am only 140 lbs, but I go the the gym and is used to lifting weights.

Unfortunately I don't think either of those bikes are availabe here in the US so I couldn't say from a personal perspective, however a 200 cc bike is a pretty good size to start out on and it's fairly easy to master clutching and shifting. I would say if you feel comfortable on the bike then you should be OK. Wear a helmet and gloves and try to practice your braking with the front brake as much as possible, stopping is much more important than going. Good Luck

hi, thanks for your input Sarnali2. I am also looking into the Honda cbr150. I'm yet still to decide though.
