33 BHP bikes?

Ok so I'm hoping to be able to pass my A2 before the law changes (fingers crossed) 

Has anyone got any ideas on 33bhp bikes? Or bikes suitable for 33bph restriction?

Thanks 

Ash

33bhp

You can restrict just about any bike you fancy to get it to produce 33bhp, except for Hardley Ableson....... but even them, with a bit of work, you can get them up to 33bhp    :laugh:

Your best

bet is a twin-cylinder, ER5 / 6 or SV650 or CB500 or GS500.

Twins tend to restrict better than 4-cylinder bikes.

Part of it depends on your budget and what you can insure.

Kawazaki GPZ 500

Yeh I have seen a 1987 GPZ 500 20,000 miles full service history in very good. Nick for £900. And TPFT insurance for £303 with pillion usage as well.

33 BHP bikes?

If you still have L plates you can only ride a 50cc if you are 16, or a 125cc if you are 17 or over. When you pass your test on a 125, you can ride any cc bike as long as the power output is restricted to 33bhp.

Thanks a lot,
Sara

had an er-5

but never actually bothered about restricting it,  think it had just short of 50bhp on tap, but being a lardy git, you would never have known.
