Yamaha Fazer (Instructor Bikes)
We needed a motorcycle with a design brief that fitted in with the varied needs of our job. The FZ6 Fazer is the bike we felt ticked most of the boxes, for a 600 it’s very light and manoeuvrable, its comfortable, economical to run and copes easily about town and in traffic.
The high-revving engine has plenty of horsepower when needed, the handling is supersport-quality and the weather-beating upper fairing protects us against the elements.
Kawasaki ER650N “A” Motorcycle
We welcome the new ER6N to our Direct Access Scheme fleet; a stunning little bike that develops 71hp from its responsive 649cc twin cylinder water-cooled engine and a perfect match for the 2013 changes to the full category “A” motorcycle test. Smooth and agile to ride, ultra stylish to look at they’re bound to put a smile on your face, feel free to call down and try them for yourself!
MCN’s Adam Child summed up the new ER-6n in his published press test verdict saying that Kawasaki have; “succeeded in enhancing every aspect of its appeal…the ER-6n is now easier to ride and more manageable which should attract more new riders….the revised, rev-happy motor is a peach, which both experienced and novice riders will enjoy…it’s brilliant around town and pulls from as little as 2000rpm” – he finished by declaring that , “On its own merits the ER-6n is a hit.”
Kawasaki ER650 “A2” Motorcycle
Now you can gain an “A2” license with the big bike experience!
For all 19 to 24 year olds (or anybody regardless of age), looking to pass your ‘A2’ licence, you’ll pleased to know that here at ProBike you can do this with a full-on ER650 experience.

This should save you time and money – and having ridden both 47BHP and full power versions we can tell you there is hardly any difference!
