TS ... what kinda bike you like ? There are so many types of bike that fits to a persons taste and purpose.
Once you have drilled this down, then you can focus onthe various models that bike type has to offer from all the various manufacturers.
And what ever it is, license first.
thanks for your concern about license bros, i'm in the process of getting it already - if all goes well by Aug/Sept can get.
i think my plan will be... sports bike/sbk first since now still can tahan the riding pos, and then years later get a bmw gs before reach 40... or when 40...
As for how much i'm willing to spend monthly.... err let's say 1.5 - 2k just for the motorcycle alone(still will have monthly savings of around 5k~ but i really prefer not to touch this money)
, and preferably new bike because this is really just a hobby...
any bike suggestions that fits this rough estimate please?

Buying a bike shouldn't be about keeping up with office colleagues. If u have no interest, any range, model will be a bad choice.
However, biking may opens up a wonderful addictive pasttime for those who can afford it as a hobby. Watch some youtube videos like Yammie Noob to gain some insight

first question is.....are you into bike or just want to 'blend in'?
many people lust for big bike at first, but end up sell back due to lack of passion.
Hah... good catch, i have to admit, memang guilty on that la, sorry to say la - gaya & "blend-in" is indeed a minor factor. If it wasn't for my damn office that you can park your bikes at our office entrance macam premium parking type, i wouldn't have so much interest on it, but i have thought of this around 6 months++ already... and still am pursuing bikes, so i think i will give it a try.

if you want to die early, choose liter superbikes
if you want to live longer, then choose a smaller bike and familiarise yourself first
no doubt u can afford any of the high end bikes out there, but i have serious doubt that you can even handle a 250cc properly
I know what you are saying about litrebikes is so true, and how so many youtubers are saying the same - but i have a feeling my idiot lust will take over...
Can i get some indications of what kind of "high-end" bikes would my salary typically can afford? (ie. can share pls for example any biker you know and their rough salary range?)
I'm really scared to commit onto a bike that is over my financial capability. (and pretty sure it's over my riding capability HAH, i can only say sorry lah i'm dumb - if i die young, bury me in a field of roses)
