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."

Thinking about doing the CBT?

"When doing a CBT you can do it on a geared or automatic bike (commonly known as a scooter or 'twistie') - which is better?"

Which type of bike you choose to do it on is dependant on why you are learning to ride.

If 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.
