Motorcycle Consumer News-September 2010-According to this article the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released a statement announcing the withdrawal of its approval of the important sale of up to 200,000 Chinese-manufactured, gas-powered off-road motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles. Apparently the EPA suspects that tailpipe emissions information was either incomplete or falsified with regard to these vehicles. The article points out that this is the first time the EPA has voided certificates of conformity for these types of vehicles and only the second time the agency has done so for any type of vehicle. The EPA is considering an enforcement action under the Clean Air Act, which could lead to significant financial plenties against the businesses that manufactured or imported these types of recreational vehicles.
