Since you are in Europe you will have a lot more choices available to you in the small bike segment. Most of the contributors on this forum are based in the USA and over here the choices are depressingly limited. I would make sure to check some local websites to see what bikes are available to you. The price structure may be completely different also since scooters are more popular over there so may sure to check around.
I understand how difficult it is to get started. I also had no-one local to help out when I started so I bought new from a dealer as it made life easier. More expensive but simpler. Also I know that it is much harder to get your license there (I am from the UK myself) but it will make you a better rider because of it. It was very easy to get my license but I continue to take training classes. It takes a long time to get really good at this and I will be learning for a long time yet. Your training is just mandatory, that’s all
Best of luck with everything. It is a bit overwhelming in the beginning but very exciting as well. I’ve made a ton of good friends from this and had some amazing experiences. Looking forward to reading about your future exploits.
