Honda Motorcycles (LAMS compliant) Learner Approved Motorcycles
Updated :  24 September 2012

This page lists the HONDA motorcycles that I consider are the best choices from the LAMS lists of approved motorcycles. They are not the most powerful or cheapest - simply what I think a new rider would appreciate and could grow into for longer than just 12 months.

If your motorcycle is LAMS compliant make sure you check that the engine is un-restricted or not - because there may be additional costs involved in removing the restrictions. Manufacturers have use different methods for making a particular model LAMS compliant. Always check with the dealer or manufacturer HQ in your area.

Most of the Australian State and Territories now have LAMS legislation - which allows new and learner motorcycle riders to legally ride motorcycles on the road that have engines larger than 250cc. See the LAMS page for links to the various Transport authorities for more information.

Comment

This a very hi-tech motorcycle in a traditional motorcycle style.  It has VTEC and ABS as part of its features.  Honda also claims a fuel consumption figure of a mere 3.2 litres per 100 kilometers. which means it has a theoretical fuel range of over 500 kilometers.  Personally I think 400km is probably more realistic taking traffic and loads into account - nonetheless it has the most impressive range.

Unrestricting the engine will reveal why Honda's sell so well.

Honda says it's the best seller in Japan and that's not unexpected cause it is a tech powerhouse!

The RVF400 and VFR400 has been very popular in the past but they where sports bikes with V4 tech.  These are great motorcycles that you can only get used these days.

In all honesty it looks great not too big not too small and in some colours even better.

Price ($Aust) 2009
