Hi guys, I have a friend in Melbourne Australia who wants get into big(er) bikes I suggested him the CBR250 (ofcourse) but he was told that this bike can't go on the high ways... is this true?:confused::confused: he said the Speed Limit on the High Way is 110km and the CBR can easily reach that.

they are telling him to get the Suzuki GS500F Im worried they are trying to rip him off:mad:

Anyhelp Is much apriciated, Flex

I've just recently gotten my Learners and just about to get my Red P's.

This is complete BS, If this were true it would have been in the test. Get him to ring the RTA and ask them. I've taken my bike on Highways/Freeways for work and recreation, ridden past many a highway patrol car and not once have i been pulled over or even taken notice of.

There making BS So they can sell him a more expensive bike.

Thank you I had a feeling it was lol.. He is getting his learners permit soon aswell and he wanted to get a big 600cc bike but he wasn't allowed yet so I told him just to stick with the CBR250r then upgrade to something bigger.

Victoria has LAMS , every state but WA has it in fact.
So some 500 and 650 bikes fall into the learner/restricted licence category on power/weight specs.

And the GS500 is no performer either.

Boo is spot on. Also have to knock it down a cog for any sort of hill...that's how I find it on the open road.

The CBR is the best value new LAMS bike goin round, and the money you save can go towards saving for a "real" big bike not a nerfed LAMS one.
