    LAMS approved bikes

    Sorry if this has been gone over before...had a search thru the forums but couldn't find anything.

    Can someone point me in the direction of the LAMS bike details for NZ? I've heard this is coming in later this year.

    Had a look on the Land Transport licensing site but saw no reference to it.

    Ta.

    List has not been published yet (afaik). The Vic Roads LAM is the best place to look, our list will be quite likely very similar.

    Sweet, hope the SV650 stays on.
    Rest in peace Tony - you will be missed.

    Yeh, it's like a list of bikes without class, so it should do

    I notice the NTV650 deuville and revere are on there, as well as the 400cc bros, but the 647cc bros has too much class, as it should be

    Lots of old bikes on that list!

    So they're 'safe' for learners but will need more maintenance which a learner may not have the skils for (yet), which could result in unsafe riding due to mechanical issues, not speeding. Doh!

    Haha ya cheeky bastard,

    Haha the whale is on there! Though for some reason it is very rare to be allowed to ship in the Deauville, but I know one person who has. Monsters are on there as well.

    It's better than all 250's so I'm happy.

    I wonder if home built bikes with a jet engine will be allowed for n00bs to ride.

    Careful. This is one of the bikes that is a trap for young players...

    In September 2008, Suzuki Australia introduced the SV650SU, a detuned version of the SV650S, to augment their range of motorcycles that comply with the country's Learner Approved Motorcycle Scheme (LAMS).[
    Do you realise how many holes there could be if people would just take the time to take the dirt out of them?

    Apparently they're quite cheap and easy to derestrict.

    Hope so, or it will come to getting a sticker to put on the S version.

    I wouldn't know, but often it is a case of bypassing something electronic...
    The Gladius is another that falls into the non- and complying versions.

    Problem with derestricting comes when (if?) the cops become wise and I'm sure have ways of checking they are still LAMS-legal.
    Remember, a standard non-LAMS SV, will not have the complying model code in the rego records.

    I did a bit of Googling and came up with this thread:

    Looks like it's not as cheap to derestrict as I initially thought as it needs a new ECU to derestrict it. Perhaps there is a performance chip that will do the same thing to save having to replace the ECU.

    Jeezus...... personally I hope not.

    An SV650 legal for a 15 year old "Spotted Yuef"?...

    Does anyone else remember when the RG 250's came out (Grey motor, with power valves), in the industry, they where nicknamed "kid killers"

    I would be VERY surprised if an SV650 would be learner approved in NZ....(there is of course a race class for these in this country, that should set alarm bells ringing.)

    The 250 rule is better (excluding RGV and NSR's and such like)

    Shit, the rest of the world has to make do with 125's at best for learners.

    True, a 16yr old on a Sv650 would be an interesting sight, but I am selfish and want one anyway.

    They also race 150cc buckets and 250's as well.
    Rest in peace Tony - you will be missed.
