"Free Restrictors on Selected Suzukis"... unfortunately not something you see on any Australian Suzuki site: http://www.suzuki-gb.co.uk/promo/000058/ From the horses mouth: I currently have a 17 year old CBR250RR. It's a great bike, but I am about to sell my car and really want something reliable (no surprises), smooth, easy to ride, sports ride position and Learner/Provisional Legal in the ACT. The Suzuki GSX650F fits the bill (except for being non LL). But, Suzuki Australia doesn't see the need to make the ECU restrictor available to the Aussie consumer. The bike is 216 kg dry. Add 68 kg for LAMS and you have a 42 kw power limit. The UK restrictors are for a 33 bhp limit, which is quite a bit less than what LAMS would allow. I have no idea what bureacratic non-sense has caused this restrictor to be completely held back from the Australian learner market. Another thing that puzzles me is that we have Ducati and Hyosung making Restrictors available for some of their bikes, but no one else. Also, the MRAA doesn't address this situation. Time for an answer, a decent answer that gives everyone a good reason why manufacturer restrictors are not a good option (other than an obvious 'cos peeps will just remove/bypass them' - this argument is invalidated by the fact that riders can buy bikes without them anyway). I could get this bike now with the free ECU and then provide proof to Suzuki of my full license a year down the track and have them swap out the ECU for the real deal. Easy. Or, I trade in the bike for one of the super-sport bikes. Either way, they get at least one sale they otherwise might not have (I bought a CBR250RR, didn't I?).
