California Carb is at it again!
Well California is at it again. Nothing like fining a motorcycle company for selling its products. Yes bassani and danmoto dared to sell or even market products in the great state of California with out the approval of the Air resource control board. Danmoto has agreed to pay 7000$ to the state and to implement a safety program to make sure no one in california even accidentally ends up with a non approved muffler. Bassani got off cheap and only had to pay 3000$ to the state. for 12 mufflers that were sold in California.
PAY UP SUCKER!
CARB california air resourse control board has been upping enforcement of carb approved exhausts. This has hit many motorcycle exhaust manufactures. Companies like Akrapovic America which had to pay a fine of over 85 thousand dollars. CARB also hit Vance & Hines with a not so cool half million dollar fine. It is a wonder that any business can stay in business when they are fined like this. Lets hope that CARB will work with manufactures and dealers to prevent this kind of fines.
