Im looking for someone around my age (16) preferably in Australia who would be able to tell me what kind of bike is good for a first bike, if I should get it new or used, and where are the best prices? my budget is $3000-$3500. 600cc max to be learner legal in australia, probably looking for sport.
Okay, so there's like a whole shit load you need to know before you start riding and pick a bike honestly.
First, let me ask you a few questions. You're looking for a sport style bike. However, there are two different riding positions on sport bikes and which position you prefer could very well be the deciding factor on the exact type of bike you select.
What kind of roads do you plan to ride on, and what is the traffic like on these roads? (i.e. high/low density traffic on urban pavement / rural back roads / etc. as well as the average speed of the roads and such)
What is your prior experience in riding bicycles / dirt bikes?
What are the lengths of your rides that you plan on primarily using the bike for?
What is your current weight/height?
What is the insurance situation in Australia...?
Are you okay with buying used?
Also, that RZ15 is only 150cc's... That's a pretty dismal engine size.
