Does anyone out there know what size engine produces 33bhp, i.e is it 300cc, 400cc etc. I need to know because i was thinking if buying a big bike but can only ride one that has a power output of 33bhp max. or if its restricted. Rep will be left of course !

Mate any bike can be restricted to 33bhp. Even my hayabusa:w00t:

I think you would be better off buying the bike you want and taking it in to be restricted.

Or pay the extra for the direct access.... you know you want to ;-)

Lol, yeah i i just read about the restriction thing. Do you know how much it would cost to get it done and does it matter what size the bike is?

No mate no idea really but I'd reckon probably at least £100ish. As I said you can restrict any bike. How long ago did you pass? I reckon anything worth looking at will be over 33bhp.

As mentioned above you can restrict any bike, some manufacturers will fit the restrictor for free if they've got an offer on as Suzuki did.

Natively a two stroke 125 such as the Aprilia RS125 or the a 250 like the Kawasaki 250R Ninja will produce around 33 bhp. I'd agree with the recommendation to buy the bike you want and restrict it for now and then take it off later, you're going to lose money buying a lower power bike now and selling it for another bigger bike so you may as well spend some money on a restrictor.

I was out on my little CBR125 today, ordered my Suzuki SV650S yesterday as that was the last day of Suzuki offers - will hopefully pass my direct access test this month.

The other point to bear in mind (if you're buying one to pass your test) to get a bike you can handle. A smaller lighter bike is easier to ride (at low speeds) than a big heavy one.

Nice choice on the SV650s - has a good reputation for its handling- just the thing for when you pass the test. If you're going to ride it this time of year, you'll need heated grips :thumbsup:

Excellent advice. I learned the hard way and have the metal plates to show for it:oops:

And as JTX hints get some decent protective gear - if you ride regularly you will have an accident. I've been riding off and on for 20 years and I've had four (thankfully low speed ones) - three rear ends (nowt you can do about them) and one patch of ice...

The other thing to bear in mind is - if you get a bike and ride it regularly - they are addictive. Even if you sell your bike. you'll still be a biker and want another (sooner or later).....

Well a bit pedestrian compared to your monster of a bike but seems to get great reviews all round plus just 4K brand new.
