The box stock Sakura S will be just right for a beginner.

Upgrading is just an option for the driver - if he considered it as "option".
Now, regarding the issue of buying a full Sakura Zero as against the Sakura "S" with an upgrade, I guess (for me) upgrading the "S" is most economical.
Since you are in Asia, part availability will be a breeze. Some of the items may be out of stock, but they eventually re-stock them with no hassles.
