Post office car label

ANESDOR, the National Association of Two-Wheeled Sector Companies, has conveyed to the Government the unease of the companies it represents about the lack of solutions regarding the environmental labeling of motorcycles.

Current motorcycles receive the same label, “C”, as those registered in 2007, despite being significantly more sustainable. The sector considers that this detrimental situation faced by both companies and users could be remedied without the need for a general modification for all automotive segments.

To this end, ANESDOR has raised the possibility of Euro5 motorcycles receiving the ECO label, which is currently deserted for this type of vehicle. Another option would be for them to be catalogued under a newly created “D” label.

In ANESDOR’s opinion, the need to modify the classification is imperative considering that in 2023 all municipalities with more than 50,000 inhabitants will have to have a regulation restricting access to city centers.

Motorcycles and mopeds have not been spared from the classification made by the Directorate General of Traffic with the ecological stickers, but in the case of two-wheeled vehicles this classification is not the same as in cars.

The aim is to make a positive discrimination for the most environmentally friendly vehicles, i.e. to favor those that pollute the least, thus penalizing the most polluting ones. The aim is to reduce pollution levels in large cities and improve air quality.

The first step in this classification is the B label, which is assigned to those two-wheeled vehicles that comply with the Euro 2 emissions standard. In other words, we are talking about vehicles from 2003 onwards, specifically 26%.

The first of the ‘good ones’ is the Eco label and is a clear example of how the characteristics of the labels for cars have been extrapolated to motorcycles without taking into account the peculiarities of this type of vehicle. This label is intended for hybrid vehicles, plug-in hybrids with a range in electric mode of less than 40 kilometers and vehicles powered by Natural Gas or LPG.

Environmental labels

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.
