bike for my brother

my brother is 14 years old 180cm tall and 70kg. he will be just riding around on a farm and maybe once a year on a mx track. he had a Chinese hunk of junk that we got rid off when my parents bought him a cr125. but the bike has too much power and requires to much maintenance and is a highly strung mx bike not a toy. anyway he needs something with a bit more controllable power and light as he is very weak and struggles to lift up his cr125. thanks for the help!!

He needs to build up his strength if he struggles with a 125 .

Yes he is very weak. I've been looking at prices and we can afford a early model like 1998 - 2003

No offense but the cr125 is the lightest 125 made at around 180 pounds no bike will be lighter then that he needs to get stronger because any other bike you buy him will be heavier

A honda xr200 or xr250 would be a good choice. But you will not find a bike lighter than the cr125 unless you buy something tiny like a 60 or 80 cc 2 stroke.

Maybe a kx100 or ktm 105sx? They will be much much much more cramped than the cr though. But at 180cm tall and 70kg, he shouldn't have a problem with the cr... Maybe get him into weight lifting? 

yeah thats a good idea because if you got him a kx100 when he gets stronger and bigger your gonna have to get a 125 anyways save the trouble and keep the 125
