Default Emissions

Hi guys, I see in this quarters trike mag, an Alfa trike which had emissions test for msva? Is this a new requirement, or is it related to an engine size or weight related? It didnt look over heavy, i thought motorcycles were exempt ?

I think it depends on the date of manufacture of the engine, visual only on older engines pre 80 something.

There's no emission test for a bike for an MoT.

But emissions have always been in MSVA. We dropped it for two strokes cos they f**ck the equipment.
