What are the benefits of choosing a tourer and how can we help you to finance your perfect model?

By combining the advantageous features from both of these different models, tourers can offer the exhilaration of riding without the fear of discomfort on long rides. This makes the perfect for anything from commuting to cross country journeys.
Since by their nature made for touring, these bikes are designed for reliability and comfort in all conditions. Large fairings, windscreens and upright seating are therefore common on these models. However, there exists a large subsection of touring motorbikes, each with their own specific features, which means you’ll be able a bike that perfectly fits your needs.
Most tourers are equipped with large engines and if you want to ride anything that’s larger than 500cc, you’ll require an unrestricted A Motorcycle Licence.
You are required to be at least 21 years old and you need to have held an A2 Motorcycle Licence for 2 years to take the unrestricted A practical test.
Alternatively, if you have not been in possession of an A2 Motorcycle Licence for 2 years, and you are 24 years old, you can take the Direct Access route. This involves a CBT, theory tests and practical test.
