For example, german bikes can't be sold over with 100bhp.

What are the others ?

They restrict them.

Although most German's buy more useful bikes.

DRLs are mandatory in Sweden & Finland, suspect they are in Denmark too

Headlights pattern are mirrored

I believe NL also has a 100 bhp limit.

Now most UK bikes have hazard lights, but it used to be another difference.

germany now allows bike to be sold without the 100bhp restriction, has been the case for the past 2 years. It was more a self imposed limit unlike the strict french 100bhp where the manufacturers parts warehouse in france cant even stock the parts to derestrict the bikes!!!, which is often done with cams and cylinder heads not just ecu!!

Isnt austria quite strict on emmisions too???

Of course it's really Europe. It's not Africa or Asia, is it?

It's not EU.

Ah, but did he mean european as in the geographical continent, or as in the EU, which seems to take in anyone who wants to join. And some who didn't.

Everyone is entitled to my opinion.

Indeed. In which case Switzerland had some draconian noise legislation. I nearly didn't get let in on my Jota over 20 years ago! Wish they had too - it is a crappy excuse for a country.

Are you sure that keeping (and selling) parts for derestricted bikes is illegal? Bikes can be registered for track use only, in which case the 100 bhp limit obviously doesn't apply. Surely these bikes have to be maintained too.
