(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.
Note :
"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.
Note : This rule is an additional NSW road rule. There is no corresponding rule in the Australian Road Rules .
