I'm guessing that the second lens is really a 55-200mm non-VR lens. You are getting a 120 euro lens for 55 euro but giving up the 18-55mm VR at a premium of about 55 euro. So, financially, it is about even. The longer lens, 55-200mm, would give you more reach but often need a tripod to control shake. I would take the first option and then wait and see what I needed next, more reach, more macro, wider, whatever. The VR of the 18-55mm isn't needed lots of the time, but taking a picture in dim light often requires longer shutter times and VR is very useful then.
