When you resgister your motorcycle

Step 2 When you resgister your motorcycle

You must go to one of our service outlets shortly after the delivery of the motorcycle to register it in your name.

If you want a green licence plate for your electric motorcycle, be sure to go to a service outlet that issues that type of licence plate.
