I read scared in several publications that as of the summer, the European Comission will sit down to discuss the possibility of limit all motorcycles sold within the European Union to 100 horses maximum, following the model of the French market. They will also discuss the possibility that all motorcycles on the market have ABS as standard.
I'm sure the argument is the same as always: if we limit the power of the motorcycles, we will have fewer accidents … but what, as they say in my country, will have to do with bacon with speed (even if the pig is racing). There is no direct relationship between the number of accidents and the power of the motorcycles that suffer them.
Of course, the worst of all is that this is not going to be like mopeds, which are limited to 45 km / h on the way from the factory to the dealer, but here the modifications will be much greater and will require a large investment if we want return them to the original power. What is clear is that they continue to use the same method on all sides: Dead the dog, the rabies is gone.
Will the hands of our DGT Director General be so long? Have you hit it off with the French President and have you put the idea in the suggestion box together? Bad we go Comrades, we are going badly, we and the people in the sector who do not raise their heads.
