Motorcycles choices The Honda tend to be smaller frame size bikes with smaller wheels also, almost scooter size except for the 200 series. The 125 series would be appreciated by a lady as the frames are smaller and there are also automatics. If you are large frame man yourself, the Yamaha 125 Ybr is very popular with the foreigners. I believe it is primarily because of the slightly larger frame size that fits the foreigner better. It also seem to have a better capacity if you have to go off road than the 125 Hondas. Expect someday you may have to go off road (forced off) by the local drivers. Since most motorcylces owned by natives are not maintained, including removing the air filter to let in more air, along with all the dirt thrown up on the roads, it is probably better to buy new, and know how the bike is maintained. There are some China made bikes here, and some people have had good luck with them, and some have had bad luck. You may want to ask the question here about specific brands. I rented a motorcycle, about 200 P a day, trying out the different models available when I first arrived. I was not able to rent the Yamaha 125 Ybr, but found a guy at the mall who let me ride his in the parking lot for a test.
