Motorcycle Makers Told to Clean Up Exhausts

Tailpipe emissions must be reduced by 60 percent by 2006, says EPA

Published: 24-Dec-2003

Honda Motor Co., Harley-Davidson Inc. and other motorcycle makers must cut tailpipe exhaust by 60 percent starting in 2006, U.S. regulators said in the first such change since 1978.

The rules require "highway" bikes, such as Honda's Gold Wing, Harley's Fat Boy, scooters and mopeds, to emit less smog-forming hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides, the Environmental Protection Agency said Tuesday.
