Well, I'm thinking of getting a motorcycle for my birthday. Then I realized it might actually be cooler if I got Clara Oswald's bike.

Can anybody tell me what brand/model it is?

A Triumph Bonneville Scrambler.

You can make out the “Triumph” badge in the picture you’ve included, and a couple of sites have pinned down the exact model. I'm not a motorcycle expert, but I can look at the picture you've shown, and the pictures they have, and see that it's probably the same model:

    “This year’s Christmas special The Snowmen (BBC 1, Christmas Day) features the Time Lord riding a bike” — I’m assuming this was a wrong guess on their part, as I’m pretty sure the bike appeared in The Bells of St. John (the first episode of season 7 part 2), and not the Victorian-set The Snowmen.

Found it (I think): the Triumph Scrambler. Specifically that distinctive exhaust:
