Can you ride the Benelli BN600 on an A2 licence?
Yes, you can ride the Benelli BN600 (2014 onwards) on an A2 motorbike licence. However, you will need to fit a restrictor kit to reduce its power output and make it A2 licence compliant!
Benelli BN600 (2014 onwards)
The Benelli BN600 is another affordable street bike coming from the famous Italian/Chinese manufacturer. Although it might not be as popular as some other models from this brand, the BN600 has some interesting features to offer.
Compared to some other bikes from the same lineup, such as the Benelli BN251 and BN302, it definitely feels much bigger and heavier. The engine of the BN600 is powerful enough for daily commuting, but it is nothing special at higher speeds. The handling is relatively good, but the fuelling is not as consistent as it should be. Therefore, the riding experience might be not as smooth as you would expect from a street bike.
Nevertheless, it is still a good motorcycle, especially when you consider its entry-level price tag. If you are looking for a beginner-friendly A2 bike that looks good and offers a great value for money, then the Benelli BN600 will be a good choice for you.
