If you want a fast, cheap, reliable bike I would say to go with a Yamaha or KTM 125 or 250 2-stroke.
A 4-stroke MX bike definetely doesnt fit the "cheap" aspect that you are looking for.

Get a 250 2 stroke if you want power but be warned if you havent ridden one before..

my mate has a yzf R1 and rides that thing pretty damn hard, he then hopped on my mates tricked out RM 250 and i **** you not it scared the hell out of him

i keep emphasizing the 250 power because recently my mate go put in hospital because he hopped on a 250 thinking it is...only a 250.. :whoa:

so yea go a 250 if u want power but take it easy eh :)
