12 electric motorcycles for your car license... Some will surprise you

For those with a car license (and three years of experience), the market offers the possibility of opting for conventional motorcycles of up to 11 kW instead of scooters, an option that seems to be gradually gaining followers.

In addition, many of these models can benefit from the Moves III plan although they must meet several conditions: be approved as an electric vehicle; have lithium batteries; a power equal to or greater than 3 kW; and a minimum range of 70km... Ahh, but only those whose price, before taxes, is less than 10,000 euros, will be eligible.

Take advantage now, we'll see what happens if the idea of ​​the General Directorate of Traffic (DGT) of having implemented a mandatory course for those drivers with a B permit who want to use motorcycles of up to 125 cubic centimeters or less ends up arriving at port at the end of the year. electrical equivalent of 11 kW.

Since 2004, there has been automatic validation to access the B 3 license, as it is known in the jargon and which gives the option of driving two-wheeled vehicles of up to 125cc and 15 HP or 11 kW, but Traffic has decided to end it to, according to This, to stop the accident rate of motorists.

This was announced by the Minister of the Interior Fernando Grande Marlaska at the beginning of this year, using the cases of Germany and France as examples.

As Anesdor has recognized, "the case of Germany is too recent to draw conclusions" while "in the case of France, more similar to Spain, the measure was introduced in 2011 and since then no evolution has been observed in the 125 cc segment is different from other segments". On the contrary, it did have a significant economic impact on the sector.

Beyond this sector, Anesdor points out that "this measure would have a strong impact on the new current mobility" by hindering "the electrification process" (the vast majority of electric motorcycles sold are in this category) and would harm new formulas of successful mobility, such as motosharing.

"The [electricity] market does not respond and will not respond until the electromobility policy is rethought." José María Riaño, general secretary of the Anesdor employer's association, insists this forcefully, after the new setback in sales data in March.

The manager of the employer's association refers, especially, to the non-extension of the Moves III Plan for the entire sector since those that are below 3kW are outside and only specific (and specific) plans from some town councils provide them aid.

The motorcycle and light electric vehicle sector registered 705 registrations last month, which represents a contraction of 26.4%. In the accumulated figure for 2024, with 2,033 units sold, the drop is 28.2%, which contrasts with the 2.9% growth of the sector.

The sum of mopeds (-38.3% and 306 units), scooters (-38.3% and 306 units) and motorcycles (-50% and 32 units), registered a drop of 32.4% (528 units) with a greater decline in the business channel (-51.4% and 52 units) than in the individual channel (-17% and 278 units) and in the rental channel (-16.7% and 40 units).

The only good news comes from microcars, which increased sales by 47% (156 units) since tricycles also fell (-15% and 17 units). These last two segments are the only ones that grew during the year: 23.4% and 66.7%, respectively.

By community, Madrid continues to lead with 233 units registered, with Catalonia (150 units) and Andalusia (100 units) lagging behind.
