Foot Propelled Two Wheeled Vehicle

26 August 2011

Weight of approximately 10 kilograms. Consists of: a steel frame with a chrome-plated aluminium fork with suspension, height adjustable handlebars, a platform with dimensions of approximately 38 × 11 centimetres (cm), with holes and grip tape, two wheels with the following dimensions: 26 inches (front) and 18 inches (rear), hand-operated front and rear brakes, and a kickstand.

The vehicle does not have a saddle, pedals or a crank gear.

The height of the handlebars, when fully extended, is 97 cm. Classification is determined by General Rules 1 and 6 for the interpretation of the Combined Nomenclature and by the wording of CN codes 8716 and 8716 80 00. Classification as a scooter or a similar wheeled toy of CN code 9503 00 10 is excluded as, although it is foot-propelled and features a platform, most of the characteristics of the vehicle, such as the size, brakes, wheels, front fork or the suspension, do not correspond to those of a scooter or a toy of heading 9503 00. The vehicle is therefore to be classified under CN code 8716 80 00 as a vehicle, not mechanically propelled. (Commission Regulation 772/2011)
