    Hi Roverman, if you arrive in Cebu you can go to MB´s Tavern and ask about Mikel. He has a motorbike repair shop, not so far from Mactan Community Hospital. He is mostly in big bikes but maybe he knows a secondhand smaller bike for sale. With him works also another German, Kalle, who has a repair shop in Bayawan. He is a real good mechanic. He is parttime with Mikel and parttime in Bayawan.

    You can quickly google "honda Wave" and get a picture and info im one spot.

    Basically it is a step through motorbike 100cc and 125cc versions, it is a direct descendent of the Honda 50cc Cub, the most popular and widely sold motorbike in history.
    There are many "clones" and look alikes, including Yamahas, Suzukis, Kawasakis. The Chinese Filipino versions abound as well, Losin, Lifan, Motor Star, etc. Rusi (Philippine Company) rebadges several brands and does at least provide superior after sales service. typically, all these bikes have automatic shifting and front disk brakes.
    Pay your money take your choice.

    Here is the first bike I bought in the Philippines. A dirt bike style 125cc step through design sold by Rusi. I liked it because it offered a slightly fatter rear tire, was better able to go up into the mountains, and had true forks instead of the truncated half forks on the street bikes. Ultimately I found it underpowered and traded it in for a 150cc. I am 6'2" and 95 kilos, with a passnger it had no umph.
