NEW EU BIKE DEROGATION LAW PASSED

The official journal of the European Union has announced that a special legislative measure modifying the Euro 4 end-of-series rules for L-category vehicles is now in place, effective from 14 November. But whether the UK government will take advantage of this in the limited window of opportunity before Britain’s Brexit transition period ends on 31 December is unclear.

Under this new article 44a of EU Regulation 168/2013, manufacturers with excess inventory of Euro 4 homologated machines as a result of Covid-19 lockdowns across Europe from 15 March can request permission from the national authorities of each member state to continue selling them until 31 December 2021. British distributors and dealers will need a decision within the next six weeks. Otherwise, underogated bikes will have to be preregistered.
