While I'm in favor of cleaner air, one problem caused by imposing stricter emissions standards across the board would be an increase in the price of entry level bikes targeted towards beginning riders with less disposable income. This may discourage some from starting to ride. One reason that I started riding was because bikes were much cheaper than cars. I might not be riding now if not for that. It's possible that raising the price of entry level bikes will lead to a decline of riders. I guess that would make the safety gestapo happy.

Re: Why fight it?

But those kinds of discounts don't apply to bikes like a Honda Rebel. The entry level bikes get more expensive, even after any discounts that may apply. On the otherhand, there is nothing wrong with requiring the RR954 to meet the regs (as it does).
