On 28 September, the European Commission presented the Amending Regulation (EU) No 168/2013 as regards specific measures on L-category end-of-series vehicles in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. The COVID-19 pandemic is causing major disruption which is impacting the motorcycle industry in the form of multiple shocks with on the one hand immediate disruption of production sites and of international value chains and on the other hand a sizeable drop in demand and increase of vehicles in stock.

This has affected manufacturers' ability to meet some of the deadlines imposed by Regulation (EU) No 168/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 January 2013. According to that Regulation, the pollutant emissions Euro 5 step will apply on 1 January 2021, which means that as of that date only vehicles meeting the Euro 5 requirements can be placed on the Union market.
