If you plan on racing MX then you will need a bike meant for the track, so look at honda CRF150R, it got bike of the year on dirt rider.com and it really has all the things your looking for as far as what you will use it for. If not...check with other makers and their 125 models. YAMAHA YZ125, Suzuki RM125...etc...etc... hope this helps....heres the link to the article

yea if you are just gonna start you will want a 150r. they are great bikes (though im biased)

if not that then the 125 would be great though a little hard to learn on cuz its a 2 stroke.
