Switching from A1 to A - bike requirements for Grundkurs?

Does anyone know if there is a specific motorbike requirement for Moto Grundkurs 2a and 3 (in order to upgrade license from A1 to A)? Can I attend on scooter of 125cc or I need something more/else? Thanks in advance!

You need an A-class bike.

I knew that for test/prufung I need A class bike, but kind of hoped that for Grundkurs any bike is sufficient...Thanks a lot anyways!

Btw, do I understand correct, that after Jan 1st 2021, in order to upgrade from A1 to A2(35kw limited), you will need to take full 3x4h courses?

Art. 19 Abs. 2 VZV clearly states Applicants for the category A driver's license may not complete the practical basic training with vehicles of subcategory A1. This will not be changed 1.1.2021.

A means either full A or A restricted to 35 kW. (Note "A2" is and will not be used in Switzerland it is A (35 kW) )

This is a bit unclear from reading the new regulations. Fortunately, the federal office in charge, the ASTRA has published a directive on this
particular issue. If you did the A1 Grundkurs before 1.1.2021 you only have to do part 3 of the new Grundkurs. If I am not mistaken this takes around 4 hours.
