As seen in the subject i now drive a 110cc honda click automatic. Im looking for something with more power, and this time i dont want an automatic....tho it was many years since i drove a manual 2-wheeler.

Is the step to for example a CBR150 (2011) or a ninja 250r to big? or should i go for something like the spark RX 135i?

best regards/jesper

The step from a 110cc scooter to a Honda CBR150R, Tiger Boxer 250 RS or Kawasaki Ninja 250R is not that big. Yes, you need to consider that the motorcycle is a bit bigger, but if you a control yourself and not go as a mad man after everybody who passes you by, you should be fine.

It's like riding a bicycle, the first bicycle was difficult, but when you had the skills of riding a bicycle under control other bicycles were not that hard to ride. Its the same with motorcycles and scooters.

I can remember when I first came to Thailand, I was really worried about using my right hand for changing the gear in a car, and yes I did a few mistakes but after a few hours I had it under control and after a few days I was driving my car without evening thinking about the gears.

So if you give yourself enough time to get used to the new situation of riding a motorcycle with clutch and gear you will have it under control within a week. And after a month or two you're a professional and nobody will even notice you had a scooter before.... ThumbupThumbup
