Wrong power rating on Registration Certificate

Wrong power rating on Registration Certificate

Friend of mine bought a Suzuki GSX650F today and on the reg cert the power is stated as 25Kw. The actual Kw for this bike is 63 according to the internet. This will probably cause much confusion if he uses this bike for his test as its below the Kw required for A licence. Anyone shed any light on this situation? Is it possible to get it changed? Thanks.

Question on passing the test 20 years and what you could ride


What were the requirements for riding a big bike back 20 years ago different to today.


How many riding test were they back in those days. Was it a single test on 125 or was their a second test on the big bikes after that.


I know a person who passed his 125cc A1 about 1998, rode for a few years on the 125 and now wants to get on the big bikes.


Was there a requirement to gain two years riding experience before you could ride the big bikes.


His Licence only shows A1 Marked on pink licence


Is he required to do a test now on the big bike?
