Following on from a recent directive from the EU commission, that all two stroke motorcycles and scooters were being phased out due to their emissions and fuel economy.
Many motorcycle and scooter developers have already phased out their 2 stroke engine in favour of the modern built 4 stroke and have spent many thousands of pounds developing these to attain the right readings etc.
However, what was never stated until recently was what would happen to the many classic Motorcycles and scooters that are already owned and maintained by enthusiasts. Initially it was said by the EU that they would not be affected and owners can continue to run them until they finally are unable to rebuild them or keep them running. This was thought to be a solution to allow natural phase out of this type of engine, as stock parts would be limited as the years progressed.
