Singapore goes green, outlaws 2003 and older

#1 Post by brrrappp » Thu Sep 20, 2018 1:45 am

A Singapore dealer that I bought some RZ parts from told me that the country has passed new "Green" emissions laws. Virtually overnight, the Singapore Government has outlawed everything older then 2003! This dealer has about 80 used classics that he restores resells etc and now there is no market for them in-country.
If you live there and want to keep the bike as furniture, Singapore expects you to pay $600 every 3 years. They also implemented a "Classic plate" for autos 35 years or older, but to qualify but you can only ride 28 days a year!

Sounds like an interesting place to grab up a bargain.
A modest "high" can be obtained by listening carefully to the sound of a 2-stroke hitting the fat part of the powerband while inhaling cool fall air tainted by the exhaust scent of VP-C12 and Golden Spectro, mixed at 24:1.
