The learner market in Australia is so big these days it seems as though the manufacturers are in a LAMS war, just like the sports bike war that’s raged for many years. In fact it’s probably more important than the sports bike market in pure sales numbers. Yamaha’s new YZF-R3 is the latest small capacity LAMS bike from Yamaha, built specifically to take on the Kawasaki Ninja 300, which itself has enjoyed plenty of sales success over the last few years.
IN A highly competitive market you have to strike the right balance in price, reliability and quality and Bollini seems to have hit its mark. There's no doubt the Bollini looks strikingly similar to Yamaha's Virago 250, and we found the riding experience similar too.
BOLLINI's Speed 200 is sold in the many thousands of units around the world including Brazil and Nigeria, amongst other countries and is only available in Australia through Sydney based Motorsport Importers.
WHILE older riders like myself may remember seeing the Daelim name around on various scooters over the years, the VJF250 marks the company's first foray into our market with an aggressively sports styled commuter vehicle.
IT DEFIES categorisation but from the point of view that you may not see yourself as being a scooter type of person, the Madass 125 offers something entirely different while offering a more traditional motorcycle riding stance.
KAWASAKI'S top-selling Ninja 250R has some big bike features in a small bike package, but this is just part of its appeal. It gets that big bike look with the new full fairing which gets plenty of styling cues from its bigger brothers, the ZX-10R and ZX-6R.
