EU import tax.....
#1
THIS IS A NONE EU BASHING TOPIC!

However! 

Did any of you lot know that any sub 125cc from out of the EU attracts an 8% levy?

Similarly the over 125cc is taxed at 6%....

Make of this as you will!!

Might explain why the very sweet and well built Aprilia 125s are so bloody expensive being built in India...

Obviously, the Japanese bikes made in Malaysia or Thailand would be expected to attract that tariff.

Remains to be seen what tariffs the WTO rules will do, as currently most don’t carry tariffs on motorcycles....

I reiterate.... this isn’t EU bashing, merely a fact I wasn’t aware of....

WTO works on the same deal for every country you trade with, so if one charges, then that's the deal for all (and vice-versa).

Anything imported through the EU i.e. BMW, Ducati, KTM, etc, and I believe Honda bring their bikes in through France will carry whatever levy the government can negotiate (sic)
There's no hope ........ he'll be an engineer !
