Number of TR1 in Germany

 

Registered TR1 in Germany


Interesting data from the German Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt (Federal Motor Transport Authority). The following table shows the total number of registered TR1 in Germany. But only official imports are counted. They can not differentiate a "grey" imported TR1 from other grey imported Yamaha models. TR1's with historical license plate ("Oldtimer- bzw. H-Kennzeichen") are also included.

2008: Starting 2008, the numbers do not include temporarily closed down/decommissioned bikes ("vorübergehende Stilllegungen/Außerbetriebsetzungen") anymore, and therefore might be to low! The numbers migth even get slightly higher from one year to another as from 2009 to 2010.

2014: In the course of quality-promoting measures, the inventory data of the Central Vehicle Register are compared to the type-approval data since 2014. In case of deviations an implausible type key number is then set to "000" and therefore not counted anymore. This caused the major decline in numbers.

I always ask for HSN ("Herstellerschlüsselnummer" / "Manufacturer key number") 7101 which is "YAMAHA" and TSN ("Typschlüsselnummer" / "Type key number") 168 which is "5A8 (XV 1000)".

Everybody can ask here for such numbers. Best is to attach a scanned copy of the motor vehicle registration certificate ("KFZ-Schein").
