Three 1975 Kawasaki motorcycles were emission tested at Kawasaki Heavy Industries in Japan, and at the EPA Transportation Research Center of Ohio. The ANPRM test procedure, which predates the current procedure, was used. Emissions and fuel economy compared well between facilities with the exception of CO, which was significantly higher at EPA. Part of the difference is attributed to ambient pressure differences between facilities. It is recommended that factors describing the effect of ambient conditions on emissions and fuel economy be developed.
