Road Tax and emissions
Just a quick one: I've recently passed my DAS in April and now own a Suzuki DL650X V-Strom. I'm baffled however by the road tax!
My company car is a Honda Civic Hybrid (I took the tax dodging option) and it's meant to be a so called eco-friendly vehicle (bullshit - average of 37mpg). Its emissions are 109g/km of CO2!
Having had curiosity get the better of me, I searched for the emissions for my bike - 108g/km of CO2.
So lets get this right - car 109g/km and 37mpg - bike 108g/km and an average of 60mpg, even on a tour fully loaded with luggage round Scotland and with plenty of 3-5th gear fun in the corners! Just doesn't seem fair somehow!
