HONDA GROM

Engine: 125cc Air Cooled, Single Cylinder, Fuel Injection

Transmission: 4 Speed

Weight: 225lbs or 102kg

Seat Height: 29.7″ or 750mm (28.1″ or 714mm on our lowered unit)

There are not many motorcycles out there that are as easy to ride as the Honda Grom. Don’t let the smaller wheels fool you; this is a legitimate motorcycle with all the typical motorcycle controls. Its low seat height, low weight and super small turning radius provide even the most intimidated new rider the confidence to learn how to ride. The Grom is also one of the “funnest” machines on the range and is a favorite among-st some of the instructors. We have even equipped our fleet with one lowered Grom, thanks to aftermarket lowering brackets and a modified shorter kickstand for students requiring an even lower seat height.

KAWASAKI Z125 PRO

Engine: 125cc Air Cooled, Single Cylinder, with Fuel Injection

Transmission: 4 Speed

Weight: 225lbs or 102kg

Seat Height: 31.7″ or 805mm

Not to be out done by the Honda and its Grom, Kawasaki brings forward their version. The Z125 Pro is just as easy to ride as its competition from Honda. The Z125 Pro gets just enough power from its air-cooled single cylinder power plant and is mated to a traditionally shifted 4 speed transmission. Take a spin on the Kawasaki and then try out the Honda. Which one will you prefer?

HONDA CB300F

Engine: 300cc Liquid Cooled, Single Cylinder, with Fuel Injection

Transmission: 6 Speed

Weight: 355lbs or 160kg

Seat Height: 30.9″ or 785mm

While our CBs are considered to be “Beginner Bikes” by the motorcycle world, most of our range exercises favor smaller and lighter machines. Though this bike might be better suited for our confident students, we hope every student that is interested in riding our awesome CBs get seat time by the end of the weekend. This CB300F has a single cylinder fuel injected engine that offers respectable sound and power. Where it gets interesting is with the brakes. Our CBs are the only motorcycles in the fleet that feature an Anti-Lock-Braking System. “ABS” is said to be standard on all bikes sold in the near future. This provides us with interesting discussions and perspectives in our emergency braking, and collision avoidance exercises.

SUZUKI VAN VAN200

Engine: 200cc Air Cooled, Single Cylinder, with Fuel Injection

Transmission: 5 Speed

Weight: 282lbs or 128kg

Seat Height: 30.3″ or 770mm

Old School. You have got to love the new Suzuki Van Van. They went back to the past and dug up a bike from the seventies, but used today’s technology. Our Van Vans use a modern frame design that allows the engine to be mounted much lower than it was originally, for excellent stability. The engine now features a modern fuel injection system. This bike uses the same sized tires as our Yamaha TW200. These give it a unique “beach bike” look. Our Van Vans are a natural fit for our Beginner Course. The large, soft banana seat will have you riding in comfort all day.

SUZUKI GW250

Engine: 250cc Liquid Cooled, Parallel 2 Cylinder, with Fuel Injection

Transmission: 6 Speed

Weight: 403lbs or 183kg

Seat Height: 30.7? or 780mm

On paper, our GW250s are full sized motorcycles. This machine is a top choice of riding schools across North America. This bike would be aimed at our bigger and perhaps more experienced students who are more comfortable with the power of a 250cc twin engine. With more power comes a slightly heavier clutch that might need more muscle than our smaller bikes. We have one of our GWs set-up with a center stand, giving us a chance to demonstrate its proper use. Despite its size and weight, our GWs can easily negotiate all of the slaloms and slow speed maneuvers at Atlantic Moto Skills.

SUZUKI DR200

Engine: 200cc Air Cooled, Single Cylinder, Carburetor

Transmission: 5 Speed

Weight: 278lbs or 126kg

Seat Height: 31.9? or 810mm

The “dual sport” DR200 has proven to be one of our favorites. It is engineered to be both a lightweight and rugged motorcycle. With a suspension that is suited for both road and off-road use, the additional suspension travel provided makes for a comfortable ride on our range. “The Mighty DR” really shines during slow speed maneuvers due to its wide and flat handlebars, upright riding position and super small turning radius. This, and our TW200, are our only two motorcycles that feature a carburetor, choke and fuel valve. This gives our class a good look at this old but good type of system.

YAMAHA TW200

Engine: 200cc Air Cooled, Single Cylinder, Carburetor

Transmission: 5 Speed

Weight: 278lbs or 126kg

Seat Height: 31.1? or 788mm

Instructors of this course have been teaching students to ride on Yamaha’s TW for well over a decade. The design of this ridiculously dependable machine has been unchanged for more than 20 years. This Dual Sport motorcycle features similar attributes of our DR, but with lower gearing to enhance its slow speed abilities, as well as a low seat to help shorter riders get their feet planted. It simply could not be a motorcycle course without a TW in the fleet. Our biggest challenge is getting the instructors off of it.

YAMAHA XT250

Engine: 250cc Air Cooled, Single Cylinder, Fuel Injected

Transmission: 5 Speed

Weight: 291lbs or 132kg

Seat Height: 32.7″ or 830mm

The XT is Yamaha’s current small displacement dual sport motorcycle. It has similar dimensions as our Suzuki DR200, but uses today’s technology, such as internal counter-balanced shafts to smooth out engine vibrations usually associated with engines that use one cylinder and it also has modern fuel injection. The “XT” is both lightweight and rugged. Generally, dual sport motorcycles tend to have taller seat heights and longer travel suspensions to offer better trail performance, but they still perform well in our tight, slow speed exercises. Regardless of which motorcycle our clients ultimately purchase after licenced, few can deny the capability, flexibility and most importantly the “explore-ability” of dual sport motorcycles.

CAN AM RYKER 600ACE

Engine: 600cc Liquid Cooled, Inline 2 Cylinder, Fuel Injected

Transmission: Automatic Constant Variable (CVT), With Reverse

Weight: 594lbs or 270kg

Seat Height: 23.6″ or 599mm

With the introduction of the Spyder well over 10 years ago, Can Am have released this newer, lighter, stripped down version for the 2019 model year. The Ryker continues to make use of Can-Am’s VSS stability system, but does away with other sophisticated systems such as navigation, ride control, power steering and cruise. Can-Am has also included a simplistic CVT in place of the traditional electronic or manually shifted transmissions of the other models. This has shed hundreds of pounds off the traditional platform, which makes the Ryker a great machine to form new “3 Wheel” riding skills and habits that are unique to these machines.

CAN AM RYKER 900ACE

Engine: 900cc Liquid Cooled, Inline 3 Cylinder, Fuel Injected

Transmission: Automatic Constant Variable (CVT), With Reverse

Weight: 616lbs or 280kg

Seat Height: 23.5″ or 597mm

Simply put, the Ryker 900 adds an additional Rotax 300cc cylinder to the Ryker 600s engine. As you would expect, this gives this machine a bit more weight and much more power. The 900 also has a couple of driving modes to choose from. Eco Mode for fuel sipping economy and Sport for NOT! However, the Ryker’s CVT transmission and its proven VSS system, you will find that the 900 is quite manageable and has no trouble negotiating all of our exercises.

CAN AM RYKER RALLY

Engine: 900cc Liquid Cooled, Inline Twin Cylinder, Fuel Injected

Transmission: Automatic Constant Variable (CVT), With Reverse

Weight: 627lbs or 285kg

Seat Height: 24.2″ or 615mm

Nothing withheld on this top of the line Ryker model. The Ryker Rally uses the same 900cc Triple as the Ryker 900, but is also delivered with a fully adjustable and slightly elevated suspension, rally wheels and tires, and a few more electronic enhancements such as “Rally Mode” to provide an even more spirited ride both on asphalt and gravel. The Ryker Rally also includes additional luggage rack options for your camping gear which make this a fantastic machine for exploring both the main roads, backroads and secret spots of New Brunswick. Like the Ryker 900, all these enhancements are well managed by Can-Am’s VSS and electronic CVT transmission.

CAN AM SPYDER F3

Engine: 1330cc Liquid Cooled, Inline 3 Cylinder, Fuel Injected

Transmission: Semi-Automatic 6 speed, With Reverse

Weight: 899lbs or 480kg

Seat Height: 26.6″ or 675mm

Featuring a 1330cc Rotax engine mated to a semi-automatic transmission, and its more “feet forward” cruiser ergonomics, it is clear to see what Can Am had in mind with this design – Style and Performance. For a larger machine, it makes use of a variable assist electronic power steering that really rewards riders with less steering effort, even while negotiating some of our tighter and slower speed maneuvers at our practice range. Unlike our smaller Rykers that feature a CVT, the F3 uses a semi-automatic transmission that is controlled by the rider using handlebar controls. The proper use and unique dynamics of this transmission as well as a few tips and tricks, are a part of Atlantic Moto Skills’ 3 wheel program.

CAN AM SPYDER RT

Can-Am Spyder RT

Engine: 1330cc Liquid Cooled, Inline 3 Cylinder, Fuel Injected

Transmission: Semi-Automatic 6 Speed, With Reverse

Weight: 987lbs or 449kg

Seat Height: 29.7″ or 755mm

The Spyder RT represents Can-Am’s long distance touring machine. With its adaptable LinQ racks and storage systems, onboard navigation, onboard entertainment, cruise control, ample adjustable wind protection, neutral ergonomics with comfortable floorboards, there is little to stop you from riding this machine across Canada. It also provides a very comfortable passenger seat, so you will likely have the benefit of a happy passenger as well. You will find that, thanks to the same power assisted steering as the F3, the RT requires even less steering effort at slow speeds than even some of our smaller and lighter, but un-assisted Rykers. Those with even the slightest interest in touring should get some seat time on our RT.

We are very fortunate to have a great assortment of Can-Am 3 wheelers. This allows us the opportunity to show the differences in these models, and provide the best possible training specific to the dynamics of each machine.
