Business Minister, Matthew Hancock announced that motorcycles and scooters will join cars, vans, trucks and buses in the government’s drive for greener vehicles.

Up to £7.5 million will be set aside to boost the uptake for electric two-wheelers and help bikers bridge the cost gap between a zero emission electric motorcycle and conventional petrol versions.

The grant could offer up to £1500 off the purchase price and allow motorcyclists to reduce both their running costs and environmental impact.
