Mod 2 likely bikes

Post by jafman » Mon Feb 03, 2020 5:35 am

hello fairly simple one this.

Either a guesstimate or perhaps you know as you have done it recently or even are an instructor/tutor...


What full power bikes do they use for the mod2. I was thinking they would be something farly linear in power like a honda CB but I hear some did it on mt07. any info appreciated. I just want to watch some vids on the way the bikes operate to prep mysrlf fully. thank you.

Whatever your instructor uses. Suzuki Gladius, Honda CB600 I have heard of being used by schools.

I had an mt07. Er6n is a popular choice too.

Ask your school - they'll tell you. They also spend plenty of time getting you accustomed to the controls during the das course.

Don't worry too much... you'll be fine on the bike they give you, and they'll make sure you're ok with it.

I used a ER6N. Depends by school. Seen some use MT07 and other use the CB650? Honda bike.

As others say instructors help you get used to bike and allow you as much time as you need.

When I went from a 125 to the ER6N I was worried I was going to crash it but I was fine. I actually found it easier to ride and on the road you feel a lot safer and it's the 125 that is a bit awkward to ride and can actually be dangerous in certain situations.

This is what nearly everyone says. The bigger bike is really a lot easier.
