The objective of this testing program was to determine the appropriateness with respect to emissions of the driver mass tolerance (driver weight variation) specified in the motorcycle regulations. In developing these regulations, two factors were considered: by specifying a restrictive tolerance, too many potential test drivers might be excluded; by specifying a broad tolerance, wide variations in emissions results were considered possible. To accommodate both of these factors, the tolerance was specified as plus or minus 10kg. To determine the appropriateness of this tolerance prior to final rulemaking, a test program was conducted to measure emissions and fuel economy at various driver masses. The test vehicle used was a Honda CB 360 which represents a typical middle weight, four stroke motorcycle.
