Road Rules 2014
Current version for 8 September 2018 to date (accessed 16 November 2018 at 15:59)
Part 3 Rule 24–4
24–4   NSW rule: speed limits for small motor bikes during periods of darkness
(1)  The speed limit applying to the rider of a motor bike on any length of road during a period of darkness is:
(a)  if the engine capacity of the bike does not exceed 100 millilitres—40 kilometres per hour, or
(b)  if the engine capacity of the bike exceeds 100 millilitres but does not exceed 200 millilitres—50 kilometres per hour,
unless another lesser speed limit applies to the rider for the length of road under another rule of this Part.
 Length of road and motor bike are defined in the Dictionary.
(2)  This rule does not apply to any motor bike that is fitted with a headlight having an effective range of at least 50 metres.
(3)  This rule has effect despite any other rule in this Part that specifies a speed limit applying to a driver for a length of road that is greater than the speed limit applying to the driver under this rule.
(4)  In this rule:
headlight has the same meaning as in Division 1 of Part 13.
period of darkness has the same meaning as in Division 1 of Part 13.
 This rule is an additional NSW road rule. There is no corresponding rule in the Australian Road Rules.
