Question 125cc Motorcycle

Hi there. I'm turning 16 next year and I want to get a 125cc motorcycle to learn how to ride and buy a Superbike when I'm 18 (the bike must be a 125cc because I'm to young to drive 250cc) I want my bike to look like a superbike, be cheap, economic but it doesn't need to be too fast. I also need the bike to be big because I'm 6'3 (I'm not heavy, just tall).
If someone knows any 125cc suitable motorcycles for me please post in this thread.

Thank you...

We may not be much help being mostly 'Mericans... Is there even a 125cc street bike offered in the US? Thinking maybe one of the the TTL dual sports or something though I doubt that at the moment. See, no help...

I don't mind if I have to import a bike from US... No problem, I'm just having difficulty finding one that I can fit in. If you know any model from any manufacturer I'll have no problem getting it. The problem is finding the right one...

Wish we could answer that - but the Hyosung is the only one readily-available here in the Estados Unidos, and they're none too common.

Ultimately, you're the only one who can decide what is "best" for YOU. Having only viewed pics of most of these, (the sole exception being the CBR125), I have to say the one that appeals personally to me is the Yamaha. I'd love to have one, but am unwilling to do all the "hoop jumping" just to obtain one (and have the possibility of it being a let-down in the end).

Hyosung dropped the 125. 250s and up only in the USA.

Ok guys. Thank you for the support.
I really like the Yamaha R125. I probably won't have to buy it from the US. I'm going to Yamaha's main site and search for some dealers here in Spain. I'll let you know if I buy it.

Thank you...
