Default V Strom 650.

Have a mate looking for one of these budget of 4-5 k, preferably with luggage and around Dublin. Itís his first bike so restricted is good. Is there much extra cost or hassle in getting it restricted.
Give me a shout if you have anything.
Thanks.

You can buy restricted 33bhp ecu's on ebay for handy money.
If he buys a restricted one you can get a full power ecu too...

You would have to ask the insurance that to be honest.
He could tell them its a factory restricted model and see how that goes.
The only difference between factory restricted and full power was the ecu.
