MV Agusta ownership in France ?

I don't think it is possible to own a bike over 100HP in France. Have we got any French members and is it possible for French owners to get around this ?

Hi gotojoe

In france, we are "legally" limited to 106cv exactly ....
(we are the only country which have any horse power restriction on motorcycle .... )

but in 2016, thanks to european law, we'll could get unlimited horse power on our bike !!!!!

There is a quota system also and if importers/retailers achieve the allocation of a required number of 106cv bikes, grey imports are legal, so it's more a case of knowing how to circumvent the regulations Joe (I used to supply grey import Hondas and Ducatis throughout Europe when horsepower limits were introduced in the '90s)

Foreigners can ride with full power bikes there, it's not a problem ...but there are a lot of radars ...that's why the HDs and other panzer bikes are so numerous there....

If you are confortable with your bike, you are not fast enough ! John Kocinski

in France, all french owners are limited to 106cv .... there are no quota which allow you to ride a full power motorcycle ... otherwise it would be really great ....

for complete informations, the insurance verify the bike when a big crash happens .... if they discover that you ride in full power, insurance won't cover any material or physical damage ... it's like you never had any insurance contract .... i let you imagine the cost of a big crash which include medical cost and financial compensation if someone would be really hurt and imagine that you don't have any insurance for paying that ... it's you whose have to pay !
