    Hmm... Actually there is alot to mentioned. It all comes down to personal preference.

    I would prefer bajaj pulsar as it is known for their great FC.

    fz16 is good if youre looking for a street bike and it looks modern and stylish.
    If solely for transport with a tank, other of its kinds are CBF 150 or Ybr 125, pulsar
    If for transport without tank, wave, spark etc.
    If you're into storage, go for scooters. eg lx150(VESPA) MAXI SCOOTERS

    Hope this helps. Good luck.

    For mini enduro can go to Honda Varadero 125.
    I want to see the world and i'm pretty sure the world wants to show a little something to me.

    Firstly, like i said, it all comes to which bikes you prefer. Other forumers above has stated if you like to go for bikes with or without tank etc.

    New bikes no need to worry about wear and tear first. Just change EO, spark plugs can already. Don't neglect your usual maintainence. If not, it will lead to bigger problems.

    To add on, parts are actually easily accessible for most 2B bikes.

    Eh sorry, not CG, YBR.
    At first I didn't believe, then I saw this.

    Seriously, this is a project worth doing for a transport bike. Find the biggest tank you can fit on the most economical bike and the most maintenance free engine aka bulletproof engine.

    Accessories from JB, fuel efficient, bigger tank than kupchais, not that expensive. Quite a looker for a transport bike, pick up also not bad.

    It should be noted that cycling is indicated for those who often suffer from respiratory system diseases - in fact, the lungs are ventilated much better, thus substantially cleansing. I really like to ride a bike that I rental bicycle out in the central park https://centralparkbiketours.com/

    Have you bought a new motorbike? I highly recommend you Style Motorbikes, in which you can find many motorbikes models for renting or buying.
