Approved motorcycles for Learner and Restricted Riders - LAMS
Updated: 8 June 2012
On 1 October 2012, a new motorcycle rating system designed to increase motorcycle safety will come into effect.
The Learner Approved Motorcycle Scheme (LAMS) is an initiative of the road safety strategy Safer Journeys.
LAMS identifies a range of motorcycles appropriate for learner and
restricted Class 6 licence holders, based on their level of experience.
The new scheme will determine appropriate motorcycles based on the
overall performance capability of the motorcycle.
The scheme will replace the current approach that allows motorcycle
riders on learner and restricted Class 6 licences to ride any
motorcycle with an engine capacity 250cc or under. The current system
applies restrictions based on the engine capacity of the motorcycle.
From 1 October, learner and restricted motorcycle riders will have a
wider range of motorcycles to choose from and will need to ensure the
motorcycle they are riding meets the new criteria.
The NZTA has produced two lists; LAMS-approved and LAMS-prohibited motorcycles.
LAMS-approved motorcycles are determined by two factors:
a maximum power-to-weight ratio of 150 kilowatts per tonne (the
power is that specified by the manufacturer and the weight is the
weight specified by the manufacturer plus 90kgs for the rider and
riding gear); and an upper engine capacity limit of 660cc. Further reading and info HERE
Want to learn on a budget?
Try and beat these prices! The Suzuki GN125 and Kymco CK125
Sick of paying too much for fuel to get to work? Tired of paying for parking? Looking for a great commuter bike?
How about a brand new Suzuki Motorcycle for $2,195?
The GN125 is a care-free learner-friendly bike that is a huge hit with the lady riders among us due the easy-handling size. At the moment, Colemans-Suzuki has got a swag of these fun machines in for a very special price. They have a larger front sprocket so the gearing has been changed and can now keep up with the traffic on the motorway much better at 100kph.
They come in three funky colours, I think the blue rocks! Black and Red don't look too bad either :)
We have one as a demo down at the training ground most days and encourage students to 'try before you buy' down at our safe training grounds without any added pressure or hassle.
Contact Colemans Suzuki to get the latest availability and price. We must warn you now, if you are too slow - you will be disappointed!
$2,195 + On Road Costs* (approx $395)
* Subject to change and to stock availability, please check with Colemans for the latest details
And from the Kymco stable....
Check out these brilliant little bikes.
The Kymco CK 125.
NOTE: Available in gloss black only.
cheap on fuel and available at an even more amazing price.
Kymco are the fifth largest scooter and manufacturer
worldwide and are building BMW’s new c600 and c650 mega scooters. Also Kymco
was chosen by BMW to
supply the engines for their G450 X Enduro bike. So these bikes are well built
and a total steal.

Got away from work up to Russell for a long weekend and got some shots of the two Harleys together..
Mine (Dawn's) is on the left - 2013 FXDC Superglide Custom 110th Anniversary Steves is on the right - 2012 FXDF Fatbob
I have the 96ci which works out to be 1580cc, where Steve's is 103ci = 1690cc. The only reason mine has the smaller motor is that Harley decided to keep it a 96ci 'to keep the costs down'. Both bikes belong to the DYNA family of Harley even though mine does look very similar to a Sportster.
Steve's 2012 Harley Davidson Fat Bob FXDF Epidemic
Steve had always talked about getting a Harley, so when this beaut came up for sale - he couldn't resist.
The Fatbob belongs to the
Dyna family of Harleys and now has the 103 ci engine V-Twin (1690cc).
It has a limited edition Harley paint job as well as
aftermarket Stinger wheels and chrome galore! Amazing colour and definition in the paintwork.
