2. Honda CG125

You could buy a new Chinese 125 commuter for not much more than a grand. Or you could spend your money on a very nice example of a machine that you know will shrug off many winters to come.

As utilitarian transport, the humble CG125 is one of the greatest machines ever produced. It's simple to maintain and repair and, best of all, fun.

Get a late minter for £1,500 or shop around for slightly older but still nice example for under a grand. Ride it through winter and then sell it for the same amount.

With hipsters doing weird things like café-racerising them, you might even make a profit.

Find it in our top 10 learner 125s.
