2.2.1.For the purposes of the type-I residual performances test on motorcycles (with or without sidecar) and tricycles, the recorded performance levels in terms of stopping distance, mean fully developed deceleration, as well as the control force used, are recorded.
2.2.2.Test speed V = 40 km/h(1) for mopeds.

Test speed V = 60 km/h(1) for motorcycles (with or without sidecar and tricycles.

2.2.3.The vehicle is tested both unladen and laden.
2.2.3.1.Braking with the combined braking system only
CategoryStopping distance (S)(in m)Corresponding mean developed deceleration(in m/s2)
MopedsS ≤ 0,1.V + V2/1154,4
Two-wheel motorcyclesS ≤ 0,1.V + V2/1325,1
Motorcycles with sidecarS ≤ 0,1.V + V2/1405,4
TricyclesS ≤ 0,1.V + V2/1305,0
2.2.3.2.Braking with the second service or the secondary (emergency) braking device, all categories

The stopping distance is:

S ≤ 0,1.V + V2/65

(corresponding mean fully developed deceleration 2,5 m/s2).
