In Australia we have a new rider power restriction rule. A learner approved motorcycle has to be under 660cc and have a power-to-weight ratio that does not exceed 150 kW/t

The Versys L has a throttle stop fitted and an ECU mod to restrict power output to
25 kW. It is a quick job to de-restrict. Some people do it while still on their learners or provisional licences... :)

Maybe U.S. should do the L. A guy at a local dealership was test driving,crashed the bike and died in the Hospital. Pretty said.

I have been riding for 35 years and don't need the "L" version however it was a demo bike and I got free rego so I took it. 4 weeks on and I haven't bothered to deristrict it. They are also worth more when you sell them than the derestricted version.

In January 2013, the learner's restriction will be raised from 34 to 48 HP in Germany. And you need to take another driving test after 2 years to get the delimited license. If you're 24 or older, you can get the delimited license without 2 years learner's permit. That's not so bad and keeps the youth from riding fireblades. You have to really want to ride to cope up with a 34 HP ZX6R...

Nice! :thumb:
I'm looking at a 2012 black model right now. I really prefer the dark forks and swingarm (over the silver) that come on the black model.

I think that is a great idea. Too many young new riders get killed usually on the sport bikes and don't understand the power yet.
