Hallo people, u think this is UK ka where we can afford to upgrade bikes easily? With taxes so high, I strongly suggest you stop wasting money on the 250cc because the ER-6n or ER-6f is a very good learners bike. You will never be intimidated by its power because throttle response is very linear and there is just not enough power to scare you. Heck, if you whack the throttle halfway open even, there is still not enough power to pull a wheelie.
So just get the ER6f or 6n and don't waste money on the over priced 250s, Kawies or the Naza. Ten minutes on it and you can see the kapchais tailing your 250, and you are paying triple, quadruple then the kapchai guys. WTF???
Yes, the NAza Blade is cheaper but how about its used value?
If you have plans for a bigger bike, get a used ER-6 so that you will not lose that much when trading in the bike.
Take your L first, then slowly upgrade to B-full. U can pay monthly installment for the license in fact.
And yes, I have ridden all the above mention bikes. Thank you very much and hey, happy riding!
sory,just i still think it too much for a total newbie(unless someone teach him n guide him) to ride 500cc n above bikes..it not only about controlling the bike,it also about attitude,new rider tend to over estimate their ability and end up doing sumthing stupid..its better doing sumthing stupid in lesser machine...n it better for him to familiarize himself with the cost in living with proper bikes(not kapcai or scoot)...n he only make around rm1500-rm2000 monthly..soo that the best for him i guess...dunno just my opinion
but its true though about the price..well,its totally up to him..he's already hearing what the cost in maintaining bigger bikes especially for daily use hehe..so he's already made up his mind
