We checked up with our Insurer, MMA  and our household policy covers ride-on mowers up to 20 hp so no need to separately insure.

Just to confirm John, are you saying there must be a seperate motor vehicle policy or covered under your household insurance?

Anything that has an engine and can be ridden/driven needs to have insurance whether used on the road or not, that includes ride on mowers!

Reveuse - Normandy , there is and never has been yet a CT inspection for motorcycles in France.   And officially yes if it is capable of being ridden it must be insured - the thinking behind this is if it is stolen and causes  property damage, personal injury or worse then it is insured.

Have no  intention of putting one on the road. Just asking if the owner of an uninsured moto x bike can be held responsible in the event of it being stolen and involved in a RTA.

You will have great difficulty putting a motorcycle through a CT! A lot of 'offroad' tracks in France are classified as roads so rules of the road exist.

Doe's this also mean that moto x bikes, which are intended for offroad use only have to be insured?

If your not insuring it you need to remove wheels and battery, if its capable of running, maybe by a thief it MUST be insured, its up to you but if your vehicle is in an accident, whether or not you knew it was being used, then you can be held responsible for any damages caused.

You won't get a carte grise without putting it through a CT. And without a carte grise you won't insure it. Just keep it off the road.

The system doesn't allow it because all vehicles are supposed to be properly recycled these days, you're not supposed to sell them for parts. But if you're not ever going to use it then technically (although insurance companies will tell you otherwise) it doesn't have to be insured.

Motors, even if off the road it still needs insurance.
