An interesting quote from an article on Motorbike insurance
claims from an insurance companies perspecitve:
"Bike manufacturers have not been as keen
to agree price discounts with insurers and motorcycle parts are
notoriously expensive. A bike that retails for less than £8,000 new can easily cost more than £40,000 to build if each part is ordered separately."

used daily for work or is it going to be a summer plaything,
which only comes out on dry days. Also are you the only person
to be riding on the bike or are you going to be carrying passengers.

about doing the CBT?
doing a CBT you can do it on a geared or automatic bike (commonly
known as a scooter or 'twistie') - which is better?"
type of bike you choose to do it on is dependant on why you are
learning to ride.
you are learning to ride just to be able to ride a scooter and
you have no intention of progressing to obtain your full motorbike
licence then a scooter is probably sufficient and is easier to
ride, since there are less controls. A scooter is far more nimble
than a motorbike in traffic and around towns. They are cheaper
to buy and run and ideal for shorter distance commuting as they
generally offer more protection from the elements than a standard
unfaired motorbike. However you cannot ride a geared motorbike
if you take your CBT on an automatic as your license will be restricted.
