France: Motorcycles To Remain Less Than 100 HP

Bad news for French motorcycle riders. The almighty and powerful European Commission Open link in a new window has ruled that France is in its legal rights to limit motorcycle power to 100 HP.

The French Association of Angry Bikers (FFMCFederation Francaise des Motards en Colere - Angry French Biker Assocation>) had sued the French state, and taken them to the European courts.

Apparently, having uniform laws in Europe only apply to anything except motorcycles! The EC stated that each country could impose their own restrictions.

The FFMC countered that an extensive study by Dutch TNO Open link in a new window showed no correlation between accidents and motorcycles with more power than 100 H.P..

So a uniform Europe doesn't exist. Riding in France on a French registered motorcycle means you can only have 100 H.P., while anyone else riding in France can ride whatever they want, on the same road, with the same traffic.

The FFMC are not going to let this go.... watch this space.
