Immatriculation for 2014 Triumph Sprint GT

Post by Loxilane » Fri Apr 20, 2018 11:19 am

Hi all,

I spend about half the year in the UK and half in France and have decided I'd rather base my bike here in France.

It's a June 2014 Triumph Sprint GT 1050 - over 100ps but with ABS. It has a flat dip beam and the speedo shows kph as well as mph but I do have access to an OEM kpm panel if required. The bike cost £9000 new and I have the original receipt etc so getting the quittus fiscal should be straightforward.
I've read the very helpful post about the new ANTS system (thanks @sbker) and obtained an acceptable insurance quote (€450 as against the £140 I pay in the UK).

I've registered a car in the past in the old days when I could go to my local sous prefecture and speak to the helpful lady there. I visited to ask some questions about the bike legalities but she said she's no longer allowed to advise people (merci, ANTS!)

My question is this: how much am I likely to have to pay for the immatriculation charges? All my searches (both here and more widely) only show information from a few years ago and I know how things in France have a tendency to change (ahem) occasionally...

Thanks in advance!
Brian

The charge for actually registering is based on something called "fiscale chevaux", some sort of calculation loosely based on power and other stuff. Whatever charge it is is reduced by 50% if the vehicle is over 10 years old. It varies so much you would have to get info from a member with a similar bike. an example, I just paid 57 euros for my 1987 Honda XBR 500, mopeds are usually 10 euros, my 1600 Harley was a lot, a 1951 Ford V8 was 380 euros, and oddly, my CX500 was free.
On top of this you may have to pay for a certificate de conformity - triumph peopel will tell you more on this.

Thanks for the helpful reply. I hope someone will be able to give me a steer as to the rough likely cost for my bike If it's €100 I'll bring it over, if it's €1000 I'll probably sell it in the UK...

Excellent- thank you very much. It comes out at about €150 which is definitely on the affordable side of the line!

Excellent - I just tested that out with my Honda, and it was exact to the centime.

For someone registering a uk bike they will need to find out the fiscale chevaux.

Fiscal chevaux seems to be 7 for my Triumph. It's very encouraging to know that your test was accurate - thanks!

That explains why the Harley was "a lot" then 😁

It was 10 years ago, and I've forgotten how much it was. I think my V8 Ford was something like 19 - maybe they dont like American made vehicles.
