    Hi I have owned my 1994 750F since 1997, I bought it as an American import at 3 years old with only 5000mls on the clock, it is fitted with a two brothers exhaust, so sounds awesome. As stated, I live in North London about 2 mls from the present ULEZ zone (not a problem at the moment as I only ride in the other direction), unfortunately they are expanding it next August past where I live. Does anyone know if there is any way I can get the official emission figures for this bike to hopefully prove that it is ok to use in the new zone.

    Any VFR pre 2005 is NON compliant, TfL will use the figures Honda supplied with the application for type approval and do their utmost to ignore private emissions tests

    Does the UK not grandfather stuff like this in? I totally get making this a requirement for new vehicles, but for a vintage bike that has been registered and rolling around roads for years it doesn't make any sense.

    The UK have never made sense when it comes to their green agenda and their relentless war on the motorist/motorcyclists. The mayor of London is a right c@nt!

    Thanks for the replies. Is it possible to contact Honda for the emission figures for my 1994 bike, and if so how. Also are the expensive private tests acceptable.

    Write to Honda UK, they have the figures with the type approval for the model and year

    If you want a private test this is the place https://www.uleztesting.co.uk/
