Driving LIcense in CH

I am wondering if anyone can give my some advice regarding driving licenses.
I have a motorcycle license that I got in my home country of South Africa, when I moved to London I changed it for a full motorcycle license for Europe and UK,
now I am living in CH, some family members have told me that in CH motorcycle licenses vary and you need to do a test for the different size of motorcycle, but the license I have from UK is a full license meaning I can ride any size I want, will that change in Switzerland...
Can someone tell me how these things work in CH, and what I need to do to change my license, or if I can ride with my UK/EU license in Switzerland.

Thanks all

Yes, you can ride any motorbike in CH if you have a full UK licence.

Make sure you swap the UK licence for a Swiss one within one year of arrival in CH. Dead easy -- no test. Just a little money, of course.
