is it possible to learn riding on a 600cc bike



  1. thing with big bikes is the horsepower(weight not so much esp in modern bikes),..which if let loose abruptly could lead to serious injury and or damage, just to be on the safe side,…use a smaller displacement bike till u r comfortable with clutch operations n also riding straight and applying the brakes,..but if you’ve had experience with manual 4 wheeled cars than the clutch operation wont be much of a problem since the working principle is the same only that on bikes you use your hand to engage/disengage and left foot to select gears,…all the best n be safe

  2. Yes its possible but not advisable since it’s more powerful and heavy. You might practice dicipline and respect but what about the other road users???..go the safe way get a smaller Cc it will give you easy time to practice as the handling will not be that difficult… drop it pick it up continue unlike the 600. Drop it multiple damages including your broken bones if it falls on you due to the weight mind you its a very expensive affair buying and maintaining these machines…Be safe take your time!!

  3. Don’t do it! I tried a 250cc sports bike when I was a rookie after taking an AG 200 to the road severally and assuming that I was pro, I thank God to this day that I’m alive and in one piece… stay away from big bikes until you’re sure you’re ready.

  4. I did a MSF course to get my DL in Virginia and the learners bikes are 250 cruisers and a crf 230, many people asked the same question, the answer from MSF coaches was “Not Recommended” you have to factor in the cost to repair your bike or medical bills, your ability to learn, your actions and reactions to situations, other road users and the roads too. The question is not actually whether you can learn on it, It takes 2days or 15hrs to learn or get a DL in the US, the question is whether you can handle the 600 after you know how to ride. I know of people who have started with 600 and crashed the first month and the cost that comes with it is huge and you might as well hate riding after that.

  5. Very lucky.

    I dont have the cash to buy a 600 then sell it 2 months down the line for a loss to buy a littre bike, my logic is I’d rather jump to my dream bike first. And learn to respect it with with rain mode on. Vincent Kariuki

    The msf is really good, it prepares you for everything.

  6. I got a 250 just to familiarize myself with the roads here as I save for my dream bike, rode 2 years back home and now one month here. Huge difference. Go for it if that’s what you feel you must do but be careful. Still wouldn’t advice you to go for it though but as I said earlier its up to you. MSF gives life saving skills, bikes skills are perishable you have to keep practicing

  7. Here’s my two cents. Hiring a small bike is like 500 bob a day. ( those boda bikes). If you’ve never ridden, start there. It’s safer,cheaper,less of a hustle. Then move up. That’s the same reason driving schools don’t start you off with turbo charged cars.

  8. Possible but a bad idea. The big engine bikes have very high torque leaving you with very little time to react. The biggest control you should worry about is how to stop it. As much as you love speed, how you bring the bike to a full stop in time of those F*** moments will always define how you get out those situations

  9. Put it this way, In most countries with a lot more experience in riding bikes than we have, and where traffic generally follows the rules, and the roads are generally pretty good, and laws are not made by roadside declarations, then it’s not allowed. And even if it was you wouldn’t get insurance. So what do you think?
