products may very well choose to offer low emission motorcycle as well. By establishing voluntary Blue Sky Standards, EPA will help create an added incentive to produce such products.
In closing, MECA believes EPA’s proposal is a good first step to reducing emissions from highway motorcycles. We believe, however, that EPA should strengthen its proposal as discussed above. We would welcome the opportunity to work with EPA, the regulated industry, and other interested parties as the Agency moves forward with finalizing this rule.
