Its hard to tell - is it just a bigger plate withe same size text or is everything bigger? This is to improve NPR cameras ability to identify you - over here we mount tax disc holders on them...

They also want it to sit at about 30 degrees angle so the cameras can see it better.
Regs came in on 1st July for French motos. €135 fine if it's not the proper size,and if you get lippy about it all they can impound your moto. I have replaced my 3 inch by 3 enduro sized plate a long time ago, on the XT.
Here ya go Phil.....
