How much does he ride? A puzey or big boy second hand go for about 6k, and usually they are used very little.

My kids went from pw50, then ktm 50, now on puzey 125 and they are very happy. Cheap as chips to run, and much more reliable than people will let you believe.

At that age the bikes only last a year, so buy secondhand.

My son went to a CRF110 and from there to a CRF230 and then a CRF250X,

It really depends on the kind of rider you think the kid will be..

My kid you could tell from young he just wanted to do trail riding and explore so a 4T was the correct choice..
