Updated: 19 November 2014

The rate of Vehicle Excise Duty (road tax) for motorcycles of 601cc and over has increased by £2 to £66, a spokesman for the Treasury has confirmed.

  • Motorcycle tax raise slammed
  • Government claims 40% of motorcycles untaxed

The change is part of Government policy to increase the amount of road tax paid by the most highly-polluting vehicles, and is only slightly above inflation, the spokesman said.
