Yeah, we need to clean the air, and I'm certain the manufacturers can meet the standards. However, I would also like all vehicles held to the same standard. Current car tests are done in percentage or PPM, which essentially means that a four liter engine can put out twice as much pollutants per mile as a two liter (assuming the same RPM). Let's see if they can build an SUV that meets the proposed motorcycle standard, which is on a per mile amount of emissions. That would mean that their six liter gas sucking sperm whales would need to have exhaust that's eight times as clean as a 750cc bike.



I am a little worried about the "Detroit line" on anything. Remember they claimed they couldn't meet emissions standards for decades. Honda managed it in two years.
