Driver licensing in Finland and other EU countries will be regulated
in accordance with EU directives. All EU states will have similar rules.

Here in Ireland:

AM Moped 50cc max speed 45kmh. Age 16+
A1 Motorcycle up to 125cc and 11kW Age 16+
A2 Motorcycle up to 35kW Age 18+
A Any motorcycle including the above. Age 24+ (or 20+ if progressing from A2).

It looks like the rules in Finland are similar:
Getting a driving licence for a motorcycle - Driving license info

I assume your reference to "medium" means category A2.
"Motorcycles with a maximum power of 35 kW and a power-to-weight ratio of no more than 0.2 kW/kg. The motorcycle must not have been converted from a vehicle with more than twice its power."

Basically this means up to 35kW. In the case of a restricted bike, the original
unrestricted power must not be more than twice the restricted power.
In practice, this means the absolute upper limit is 70kW.

You could restrict my 57kW Suzuki Bandit 650 to 35kW. You could not
restrict a 93kW Suzuki GSX-R 600 because it makes more than 2x 35kW
in standard unrestricted form.

There is no engine capacity limit for A2. In practice, it may be difficult
or impossible for a young rider to get insurance for a large capacity machine.
