    Hello, welcome to the forum.

    Am also new here, would like to take today the opportunity to experience the Italian speeding offenses, so to speak first hand.

    I was last in Italy in 2015, from north of Milan to the French Mediterranean border. Before that I read on the internet that the motorcycle is penalized 60 days for penalties. Even driving with one hand is prohibited.

    Not that I'm a Raser, but it should be swift. 50 +/- in localities I always keep, on well-developed roads are 90 km / h already exceeded quickly. In addition, I had the impression that in recent years a lot of 50 and 70 km / h signs were set up. Never have so many scooter drivers overtaken me!
    So how is this in Italy? When will the bike be confiscated and are the controls really that bad?

    greeting
    Holger

    I'll try to answer, but I'm sure I didn't fully understand what you mean.
    On cities the limit is 50 (but it could less). On external or main road it is 90 or less.
    When I say less, It means there will a sign.

    About the controls.... the bike could be confiscated only some particular cases:
    you pass a crossroad with red traffic light, you drive drunk, you drive a "modified" bike, you drive without insurance... etc

    for the speed, the police could confiscate your bike and licence if you drive at speeds 60km/h higher than limits. If your speed is from 41 to 60 km/h higher than speed limits only your driver licence will be confiscated. In all cases you will get a penalty.

    You should pay attention to the speedtraps.

    I hope this helps.

    Hello
    yes, thanks for the info.

    Before my last trip through Italy, I had read in a german forum that bike will be confiscated in case of any little speeding.
    Also much more controlls, especially foreign biker.

    But it does not seem so bad.

    hi Holger,
    I´ve been in the Italian and French alps since the end of the 90s.
    there`s definitely more Police today, but that isn`t any wonder.
    During summer Holidays there`s loads of traffic and dozends of deads:mad:
    just keep it like this :
    if ride reach a town....don`t "roll in " ....Keep it somewhere around 50 km/h and everything´s just fine.
    if you ride the famous Areas like " sella ronda" ...eyes on Speed Limit !!!
    if you ride the smaller ones like " passo Duran " ...just let it go, no one cares.
    in the end it`s a bit like riding at home, if you know the places,

    Took at trip from West (Chamonix) and to Brennero in June. Absolut NO problem with police, speed limits, speed traps only in Splügen Pass, there was a radar and some police in the town just before the first S Bend. Bonus info. Week 25 was fantastic, nice weather and very little trafic :) Hope to do the trip again 2018

    In addition to that

    recently some mayors have been pushed by the ecologists to close or to reduce the car and motorbike traffic and to incentivize the bikes and the walking mans.

    That is definitely the problem, some apls's passes could be closed
