Good idea if you can.
I worked in melbourne area a lot in 2007 , traveling the M80 from geelong
way.
Very early in the morning would look at the line of traffic heading towards the city on those main roads that were underneath the M80. Figured at the time i was very lucky.

Yeah the traffic jams in Melbourne now sucks. Geelong road like others is gridlocked. The city growth is phenomenal, yet not enough has been put into vehicle infrastructure. I guess its the same everywhere else.
However, Melbourne does have great bicycle paths and if your lucky enough to live on the beach side, then you can ride into town without a traffic light or registration fees. I'll save the Ktm for what its best for.

As of about 2 year ago, In qld here we can legally lane split (within certain parameters). It's great, get through the city in no time, you do get the odd ticked off cager that wants to open they're door on you, or yell or winge, but there is nothing they can do about it, rules are rules.
No need for electric pushy here
