So i have my eye on one of these when they come out.I have an A licence but it is restricted to autos.The Honda will have a semi automatic gear box( no clutch lever- just tiptronic gears switches and two auto drives) Honda have told me this is classed as a manual bike.
Aprila Mana GT, semi automatic gear box, tiptronic gears, three auto drives , even has a gear foot pedal.This is classed so you can ride it on an automatic licence.
I have contacted the DVLA who say as long as the bike has a semi automatic mode i can ride this on my full licence which is restricted to automatic bikes.If i were to purchase the bike and the insurance company agrees, if i get stopped by police , who then contact the DVLA who say it is okay for me to be riding the bike, in the case of an accident would they pay out?
Can the dealer actually stop me from buying the bike, anyone know a good bike insurance company who i could discuss this with?
I do not know why the Honda is classed as a manual bike as it is a semi automatic bike( i.e no clutch lever)
