SWM Superdual Owner here??

Post by SteveR » Tue May 14, 2019 9:07 pm

Are there any owners of a 2018 /19 Superdual T or X version here on ABR? This is the Euro4 engine.

I'm struggling with deciphering the Certificate of Conformity I have for the bike (as my technical Italian is poor... as in non-existent!! ) and I need to bring across the CoC data for a new Registration on form V55.

If I could have sight of an English CoC or registration document, I should be able to sort the bloody thing.. :shock:

Can anyone assist please?

Hi,

Not answering your request directly as I don't have the SWM. But, have you considered the google translate app which can use the camera on your phone or tablet to translate a written document.

I assume apple probably have something similar on iPhone if your not of the android persuasion!

Google translate works on iPhones too: I use it when I'm abroad. I've even used it to translate letters from Credit Agricole for my mum! :D

Good idea... Thank you! ;)

Some of the issues are also with the measurements on teh CoC being different to the UK paperwork, but I am sussing them out slowly. However, I am now involving my (probable) future SiL who is Anglo Italian and we will go through the two documents together while on a whatsapp call .

Hopefully he will come up with the goods, else I will have to ponder any request for my daughters hand in marriage!! :lol:

Greetings Steve,

How about contacting the current owners of the company and asking for their assistance,

You could also try one of the previous dealers.

Thanks for all the ideas Chaps.

In the end using a combination of Pigeon Italian (me) Nico (Hon SiL) and Google Translate I filled in the V55 from the Certificate of Conformity that the new Importers got for me, off SWM in Italy. I also found that a recent Reg Doc (2013) for my AJP was very helpful in understanding some of the jargon!

I sent it off with a covering letter as advised by DVLA helpdesk and on a wing and prayer :D

Hopefully all will be pretty good and I will have a road legal toy by the end of the month... All ready for a TET jaunt or the Portugal ACT later in the year.
