Hi Everybody!

Finally in a couple of weeks I should Attend A3 License (to ride every kind of bike on street without KW/HP limits).

I'm riding a Suzuki SV 650 (2016)

A good way to start on Road Use, with a not so bad Engine power (75 Hp) and a light weight (197Kg) :bluethum:

The only Cons at this moment are the front brake which is not so powerful and the Forks a bit soft (but in a city with a crappy asphalt like Rome :fight2: it could be a Pro), which in a more aggressive ride can bother a little.

By the way I'm already in love with it and I totally suggest it to any newbie and experienced rider which want to have some fun with an easy bike ;)

Somebody else in this Forum own this bike model?

Yeah, here in Italy the "ancestor" of this bike was quite popular, like I said this bike is perfect for learners. I don't know LAMS acronym, maybe is the system which this bike has to help on starts to not make engine go off :mrgreen:

The LAMS stands for Leaner Approved Motorcycle Scheme, The bikes are limited to a power/weight ratio not exceeding 150 kW/t and a maximum of 660cc, although I have heard the Harley 883 fits the requirements as do some of the Ducati Monsters.

Interesting, every day is a school day ;)

How can 883 and new Ducati Monster fit in a maximum of 660cc? :huh:
