Occasionally a student will come to class who doesn’t feel comfortable on our training bikes because of height or fitment issues (e.g. their legs are too short, or too long, or their hands get tired because they’re too small, or they are using different muscles). Very rarely are our training motorcycles too tall or too small for the student. We use 125cc and 250cc motorcycles, and 49 cc scooters, the smallest on the market.
The shortest student we have trained was 4’6″ and weighed approximately 88 pounds. The tallest was approximately 7’4″ and weighed 450lbs. Both of these students completed the course successfully on our training bikes. We use motorcycles with the lowest seat heights available and the lightest weights available. Most scooters actually have a higher seat height than our training bikes by approximately 1″ to 2″.
If you are concerned about sitting comfortably on one of our training bikes please visit any of our dealer partners to sit on a comparable motorcycle or scooter before enrolling in our class, or contact us. We can try and arrange an onsite visit during a class so you can sit on a motorcycle.
