Early in 1976, the Honda Motor Company, Ltd., of Japan, offered to make available for EPA testing three prototype motorcycles designed to meet the proposed 1978 Federal emission standards for motorcycles. These motorcycles incorporated improvements in fuel metering and combustion control to reduce exhaust emissions, and improvements in durability to maintain the reduced exhaust emissions over the useful life of the vehicle. One motorcycle would be equipped with an auxiliary hydrocarbon control device in the exhaust system. Data supplied by Honda indicated that the prototype motorcycles would achieve the proposed 1978 standards with considerable improvement in fuel economy over that delivered by their current production motorcycles. The EPA agreed to test the three prototype motorcycles, and also requested that three current production motorcycles (which have uncontrolled exhaust emissions) be supplied with the prototype motorcycles so that comparisons between current production motorcycles and the prototype motorcycles could be made.
