    Just go step wise: Buy a small bike and learn how to ride, either from a friend or a school. Then upgrade to the a bigger bike as you get the experience and skills necessary to be a good rider.

    The point is: Just get started.

    Buy CD70 and learn how to drive with the help of some of your friend/relative who knows how to drive. Know how to control it, how to balance etc.Once you get hold of it then buy 125 and so on.

    ^^ Rightly said.
    Just get started with a smaller bike, 70 would be good to start. Once you're comfortable with basic riding control and road sense for riding then try riding couple of diff bikes 70, 100 or 125 in your friends circle, if possible. Riding different categories and brands will refine your control and will give you confidence.
    Some tips; Always wear safety gear, at-least helmet every time you ride. Don't get scared of felling off, if you keep in mind in advance that you can fell from bike, then this will actually help you preventing from felling or worse you'll be able to make yourself safe in such situation. Don't try any stunts, racing etc.

    Regarding sports bike, it will be very much different experience all together. Your previous riding exp will give you confidence in fast learning. You can ask questions about that from senior bikers, once you reach that stage!

    Some guys directly start from bigger bike, you can do same but I'll not recommend that.

    All the best and welcome to PW.

    Unfortunately, there are no riding schools in PK, following threads might give you some help;

    As I said, riding a sports bike would be entire different experience, just check my queries (pg 3 onwards) even after decade+ experience of riding
