The Yamaha Tricity 300 is one of the most unique motorcycles you can ride on an A2 licence. In fact, you don’t need an actual motorcycle licence for this bike. It comes with an additional front wheel and an extra set of brakes, which makes the bike very accessible and super-easy to handle.

The Tricity 300 might not be the most powerful bike in the category, but it is capable of reaching motorway speeds without any problems. The seat is comfortable enough for longer rides and the screen offers excellent wind protection.

The price might seem a little too high, especially for a scooter, but it is a well-designed and reliable machine.
