Motorcycle Startup Costs

Recommended Posts

Had a quick look and it doesn't look like this has been done before. Thought it would be a good idea to have the basic startup costs all in one thread.

 

This is what I can think of:

 

Learners: $325.

License: $25 for 6 months or $40 for 2 years.

 

Keep your learners minimum 6 months then apply for R-Date.

 

R-Date: $341.

License: $19.

 

Once you have these you must remain on LAMS approved before upgrading to any bike you want.

 

 

These are just prices I have found in my limited research:

 

Helmet: $350 +

Jacket: $250 +

Kevlar Jeans: $100 +

Gloves: $50 +

Laceless Riding Shoes: $100 +

 

Bike: $4000 (this is for a Ninja 250)

 

Insurance: $500 (based on Ninja 250 and zero experience)

3 months Rego: $90-$100 for 250cc.

 

 

Can anybody think of anything I have missed?

rego will be around 100 bucks for 3 months, that list is good for a start....but better riding pants and boots would be a goa .

yeh my rego for 3 months was $98

 

and for a learner i would say you can probably put the helmet cost at around $200+ you can get AVG, M2R and RJays helmets for around this mark.

 

Also once you do the advanced R-Date course you pay $19 to have your license re-issued with the date printed on it.

it's relatively cheap when on a 250, but when you start moving up it starts hurting. i'm currently paying almost $600 a year for rego (i think), and $2000 a year for insurance :(
