ADR 19/01 - Lights-on still in place?

Discussion in 'Politics, Laws, Government & Insurance' started by The Snow Dog, Mar 22, 2005.

  1. Hello all,



    We picked up the little Cagiva, new, last week and I've only just noticed that the headlight is not hardwired on. Was lights-on abolished while I was sleeping?

    Thanks,
    Doug
     
  2. It only lasted about 2yrs, and was removed from the ADR's about 8-10 years ago. Issue is that enough countries in the non-US market have lights-on requirements that the manufacturers just make the bikes for the non-US market with hardwired lights, otherwise it makes it more expensive for them to offer different alternatives.
     
  3. Thanks, I'm not sure how I missed that... It's such a worry! :roll:

    It's an issue I was particularly interested in, and wrote a uni paper on, back in '92...
