So, the all-important “What will I be riding?” at MTS Sussex…
The CBT Motorcycles
Let's start with New Rider (NRTC) and CBT training motorcycles at MTS Sussex; We’re all different so we figured we would give you a choice, hopefully, we have something to suit everyone. We have various 2 and 4 stroke 50cc automatics which are lightweight and easy to ride, various colours too, blue, black, grey, red-orange, silver, and funky white - apparently it's all about the colour! All great mopeds to start riding on...there's also......our Automatic 125's, perfect for anyone over 17 who doesn't want to ride a manual bike.
Our 125cc’s. MTS Sussex run Yamaha YS & YBR’s. They’re just mini versions of a big bike, easy to ride, solid & reliable, perfect for New Riders, CBT's and A1 motorcycle lessons. Again, we have white, red, black, silver...you may laugh but many a student has chosen a bike because of the colour - and nope it isn't the ladies!
We also have a few low seat custom versions....
So for those of you preferring a 'low rider' custom style motorbike; let me introduce you to Laurel and Hardy, our custom Yamaha 125's and our forever faithful SR 125 (otherwise known as Mrs Doyle - not in the photo as in high demand and being used as we speak!) These lovely low riders are spot on for those of us slightly vertically challenged… even I can reach the floor on these little beauties!!! (I'm only 5’ tall!)
The custom bikes are always popular so if you need or want a low ride, please mention it at the time you book as the 'lows' are in 'high' demand!
The Big Ones - A2/DAS Training Motorcycles
We have a fleet of new Yamaha MT-07's suitable for DAS & A2 (using the restriction switch fitted.) If you would like to read a bit more about the MT-07, take a look here
We also have Suzuki GS500'S and Honda CB500F's for those who prefer the retro styling and for A2, back to biking etc.
Something for everyone, especially as we have a selection of 'lowered bikes' (MT-07's & GS500) making DAS & A2 possible for almost anyone!
Our lowered seat Yamaha MT-07's are really popular at MTS reaching the floor is easy, even if you're already pretty low to it normally!
Not to put too finer point on it - but here's Tom, one of our students having no problem getting his leg over!
Reliability and Comfort
Luckily for us at Motorcycle Training School Sussex, having a mechanic on site means all the motorbikes are well maintained and regularly serviced, and if any adjustments need to be made for your comfort, we can usually accommodate this quite easily, so don’t be afraid to ask when it comes to maybe needing a lever moved slightly or the suspension lowered a bit… after all, with MTS Sussex, this is all about you!
