I deleted my previous post because I spoke to a friend who works in the Guardia Civil. He kindly updated & corrected me.
Basically, yes you can be fined for noise under one article of law and fined again if they bring a decibel meter and discover you’re beyond a certain criteria.
Depending on who stops you and what kind of a mood they are in, you can also be fined for modifying your bike, polluting and for installing non homologated accessories - no matter where your bike is from! And as a tourist, your fine would be on the spot or your vehicle would be seized if you can’t or won’t pay.
But he said all this is very, very rare and someone would really have to have it in for you to bring down the full force of the law (and fines).
Be polite and I believe you’ll be ok.
Think of all the noisy and modded Harleys riding around Spain without a care or worry.
Mallorca is FULL of them (mostly on German plates)
Have a wonderful trip and post some pics of you can. Spain and the Peninsula is stunning!
