I would recommend a 125cc bike and I don't know of any current race replica bike with that engine size.
I would recommend a ninja250 or maybe the cbr250. Kawasaki also has a inline 400cc bike perfect for beginners with no experience.
I personally started on a 600 but I've been riding dirt bikes and sport quads since I was 9.
If you still want a 125cc bike I would strongly recommend the Honda grom it the newest models 2022 is a 5 speed and anything prior is a 4 speed.
They have a huge fan base and lots of aftermarket parts. It's basically the 400ex sport quads. Though ot only top out at 55 maybe 60 if you light.
It has something like 10hp and 9 ftp of torque.

I would guess that the all put out roughly the same power and with that said, I would choose the aprilia rx125 mostly because it's a supermoto type bike and they generally handle very well and are pretty light. Otherwise I would choose the gsxr 125 or maybe the ninja. I'm a pretty big fan of suzuki they make great bikes but at the same time they all are good bikes.

At 45 you can get an unrestricted license, can't you? Why stick to a 125 if you could go with, say, an R3 or a Ninja 400?

As for d license thing i was hoping for now if u got a photocard provisional license all u need is a cbt test and i can automatically be allowed to ride 125cc you cant fail a cbt test at least not round here anyways they will keep you out on the bike until there happy and then the same shop will finance me a 125cc supermoto race rep.

Mate, I would have a very hard time understanding the legal term of "restricted" and for this reason, I'm not the best person to ask... What I know is that my younger son got his up to 125cc license in Europe (lives there with his mom) at the age of 16 and by the time he was 18 he made his full blown license her in my city. Next he got an "international" one also from here and his bike is a 2019 BMW S1000R. He visits over the summer every year and that is when he renews his international one. He hot 21 recently and now he can have his full blown license over there, however he never missed a day of riding what he wanted (LOL!!!) The entire license process was done in a single day to the extent of about $320. All the best, be happy and power to Ukraine!
Cheers!
