How does Motorcycle Datatag work?

Car energy label

With the arrival of the new Euro 4 regulations, several changes have been applied to power limiters. As we explained in a previous post, in which we were the first to advance how the Euro 4 limitations would be, the specific requirements for this type of motorcycles are as follows:

This sticker should not be taken as a “complement” to the limiter or as something optional, but in Euro 4 motorcycles it is one more element of the limiter kit itself. Just as the installation of seals and anti-tampering threads is essential for everything to be correct and to pass the MOT, the sticker fulfills an essential function and therefore all Euro 4 limiter motorcycles must have it. Otherwise, the limiter would not be correctly installed. Furthermore, if for any reason it is tampered with (as happens with the anti-tampering device), the limiter loses its official validity and cannot be replaced, except in certain situations that must be justified.

The four environmental badges were created based on the environmental impact of vehicles. This categorization has its origin in the National Plan for Air Quality and Atmospheric Protection 2013-2016 (Air Plan) which states that both particulate matter and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) have in road traffic the main source of emissions in large cities and proposes the classification of vehicles according to the levels of pollution they emit.

This classification aims to positively differentiate the most environmentally friendly vehicles and to be an effective instrument at the service of municipal policies, both restrictive of traffic in episodes of high pollution, as well as promoting new technologies through tax benefits or related to mobility and the environment, as specified in the BOE.

It has existed since the end of 2015. It is the “Zero Emissions” category, that of the most recent electric cars and plug-in hybrids. Globally, any vehicle, from mopeds to trucks that are classified in the DGT Vehicle Register as battery electric vehicles (BEV), extended range electric vehicle (REEV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) with a minimum range of 40 kilometers or fuel cell vehicles.

Where to place the environmental label on a motorcycle?

In cars the badge must be placed in the lower right corner of the front windshield, but in the case of motorcycles it will be sufficient to place it somewhere visible, such as on or near the tank, on the trunk, on the fork, on the front fender, etc.

Which motorcycles do not have an environmental badge?

Like cars, motorcycles and mopeds are classified in different categories – B, C, ECO and zero emissions. Motorcycles and mopeds prior to Euro 2, which mostly correspond to those registered before 2003, do not have an environmental label because they are considered highly polluting.

Environmental label

The purpose of the DGT sticker for motorcycles is to positively discriminate the most environmentally friendly vehicles and to support municipal policies to combat pollution. In other words, they serve to identify the least polluting cars and motorcycles so that only these can circulate in the center during high pollution episodes. For example, Madrid and Barcelona have plans to restrict the circulation of motorcycles without a label in times of high pollution.

What about the rest of the motorcycles? What about motorcycles that do not meet the requirements of any of the environmental categories?    Motorcycles that do not fall into this category are not entitled to their DGT sticker, limiting their options to circulate in the city when pollution is high.

In Barcelona, the City Council has already warned that it will restrict circulation to the most polluting motorcycles and mopeds in the Zona de Bajas Emisiones Rondas Barcelona during episodes of high air pollution on weekdays. In the Capital, the Madrid Central plan limits the circulation of motorcycles, whether there is pollution or not.

Which motorcycles can circulate in Barcelona 2022?

The classification of the fleet aims to positively discriminate the most environmentally friendly vehicles and to be an effective instrument at the service of municipal policies, both restrictive traffic in episodes of high pollution, as well as promoting new technologies through tax benefits or related to mobility and the environment.

There are four environmental badges created according to the environmental impact of the vehicles and these will classify and grade the 50% of the most efficient fleet. From highest to lowest efficiency they are:

0 emissions label, Blue: Identifies the most efficient vehicles. Battery electric vehicles (BEV), extended range electric vehicles (REEV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) with a range of 40 km or fuel cell vehicles will be entitled to this label.

Eco label: Next on the efficiency scale, these are mostly hybrid vehicles, gas or both.  They will qualify for this label: plug-in electric vehicles with a range of less than 40 km, non-plug-in hybrids (HEV), vehicles powered by natural gas and gas (CNG and LNG) or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). They must meet the criteria of the C label.
