Hi guys, i made the stupid mistake of buying a keeway superlight as my first manual to learn on, short story short, it had loads of problems from day 1 and was just a bag of beans. Now I managed to get rid of it I'm looking at my options for a way more reliable Japanese 125.

The two I'm looking at are a 2013 Yamaha YBR Custom and a 2005 Honda CBR. Both around the same price, both have pros and cons.

2013 Yamaha YBF:
+ 3k miles
+ Like the cruiser style
- seller seems a bit dodge
- doesn't have much service history

2005 Honda CBR:
+ had same woman owner for 10 years
+ regularly serviced and looked after as she used it as a commuter
+ love the Repsol fairings
- its on 24k miles

so my main questions are. How do the hondas CBR stand against the test of time? What is the better bike generally?

It's not in very good condition for a bike that's been regularly serviced and looked after. Laughing

The YBR has only ever been MOT'ed once.

Between those two it would have to be the YBR subject to checing that there's nothing (much) going to need doing to it any time soon. They say it has a long MOT, I say it's got less than four months MOT.
