It has worked very well for cars in many European countries. The government pays you a bonus if you trade in your junker of a car for a new, more ecological one. Many car manufacturers have reported good sales over the last few months, bucking the economic downturn.

But many have been wondering why motorcycles have been left out of this bonus system. Until now. Italy are giving out cash bonuses for anyone who trades in their old 2-stroker or Vincent Black Shadow for a Euro 0 or Euro 1 motorcycle. You can get up to €1800 if you buy one of the new types.

But before you get your knickers in a twist and order a brand new Ducati Streetfighter, you have to realize that Euro 0 and Euro 1 motorcycles are super ecological ones, ie, they are electric. But for Euro 2 two wheels, you still get a bonus, starting at €180, so not bad. as far as I can tell, new Euro 3 ones also qualify, but the bonus is much smaller.

Even hybrids are covered by the deal, up to €950 are given. The deal even applies to electrical powered bicycles.

The trade-in deal works. During March, motorcycle sales increased 7.8%.

Now if only other countries would start such a deal. Motorcycles sales would start increasing, and we would all be happy. Why look after cars only politicians?
