    French power restriction

    Hi all
    I'm thinking of buying a 2011 R1200GS in the UK, but I just found out that the bike came from France and was first registered in France.
    I'm wondering if the bike will be restricted?
    The power of the standard GR1200S is 78 kW (105 bhp), so am not sure if a French GS is restricted to 100 bhp, or whatever the actual restriction is?

    Will have been, I imagine.

    If it is cheap enough - doubt if it would be too much work to return to "Brexit" figures.

    Al
    If I am ever on life support - Unplug me......
    Then plug me back in..........

    See if that works .....

    The actual power limit was 106 bhp (74kW plus a 6% margin) so I doubt that a 2011 1200GS would have been restricted in the first place.

    Thanks for that.
