My son in New Zealand tells me no more imported bikes will be registered on the road if they do not have ABS brakes.

Never mind that, Euro is heading to speed limit controllers, so you will be limited to the speed limit.  :sip:

Ian is that for new registrations only, or re registrations as well? If so it's going to knock a big hole in the second hand market. Surely must be for new bikes only? Puts paid to the whole DR series, which are hugely popular over there.

No, Maggie has da rather large set of B@lls…
I rather wished she had either shown her balls toCyril/Squirell, or else at least told him he HAD a pair, in-built, as it were, that he could use when running the Country…

Maggie’s faced down the Miners beautifully…

Accrding to my knowledge it is on new and secondhand bikes, bikes older than 20years can still be imported as "classics".

Sorry, I regarded an import as a new registration, I wasn't thinking secondhand import.  :thumleft:

The same requirements in 'stralia.

https://www.hondashop.com.au/aussie-govt-has-killed-off-the-grom/

All new bikes from Nov 21 must have 2-channel abs, which will cause a lot of the small fun bikes and scooters to disappear from the market.

They will now also ban new sales of quad bikes without roll-cages...  Honda and the other main players said: Stuff that. They will not entertaining this and will be pulling off quads from the market from October 21. Most of the rural bike shops rely on quad sales to keep their heads above water, so they are not happy.

I consider myself a pessimist. I am therefore always right...eventually.
