CATEGORY A2 IBT

This is our Honda CB300R which is a very light and agile bike. A perfect motorbike for anyone wishing to do their A2 IBT in Mayo. You can do your A2 IBT and driving test on a motorbike from 245cc.
The A2 licence applies to motorbikes with a power output of upto 35 kW, including motorbikes with a power limitation (restriction) of 35 kW. If you choose a motorbike with a power restriction, it may originally have a power of up to 70 kW (i.e. up to twice the restricted power). This means that you can start with a bike that has a normal power of up to 70 kW, but initially with a power restriction and later with the full power. This licence can be obtained by anyone over the age of 18.
