(1) Provisions on scrapping motorcycles

Under the current scrapping policy, motorcycles can be scrapped in two ways. One is mandatory scrapping, the second is guided scrapping.

Compulsory scrapping, as the name implies, is mandatory and inviolable; Guided obsolescence, however, is a recommendation and not mandatory.

1. Forced scrapping

Motorcycle mandatory scrap is based on the motorcycle service life, as long as reached the specified number of years, will face mandatory scrap.

According to Article 5 of the Standard Provisions on Compulsory Scrapping of Motor Vehicles, the service life of motorcycles is as follows: regular three-wheeled motorcycles are used for 12 years, and other motorcycles are used for 13 years.

That means they can last up to 13 years, after which they are scrapped and no longer legally allowed on the road.

In addition, there is another supplement to the motorcycle scrapping policy: Relevant departments can take into account the actual local conditions, formulate stricter than the above service life regulations, but the three-wheeled motorcycle should not be less than 10 years, other motorcycles should not be less than 11 years.

2, guide scrap

In addition to mandatory scrapping, motorcycles also have a "guided scrapping" rule.

According to Article 7 of the Regulations on Compulsory Scrapping of Motor Vehicles, the State guides scrapping of motor vehicles that have reached a certain mileage, among which, three-wheeled motorcycles run 100,000 kilometers and other motorcycles run 120,000 kilometers.

In other words, even if your motorcycle has not reached the 13th or 11th year of retirement, but the mileage has reached 100,000 or 120,000 kilometers, the state will be guided to scrap your motorcycle.

That is to say, as soon as 11 years old motorcycles may face obsolescence.

(2) Classification of two-wheeled electric vehicles

Although there are various types of electric vehicles, they are generally divided into two categories: electric bicycles and electric motorcycles (which include two-wheeled motorcycles and electric two-wheeled mopeds).
