Environmental standards

Over the last decade, by moving from ECE 40 to Euro 3, the Industry achieved important progress in reducing the environmental impact of Motorcycles (- 94 % of CO and HC, and - 50 % of NOx).

ACEM members are committed to continuing this reduction process and propose for motorcycles a two-step reduction process:

- A Euro 4 stage in 2012, entailing a 25% reduction over Euro 3 in tailpipe emissions for motorcycles.

- A Euro 5 stage, three years later, realising a further 25% reduction in tailpipe emissions for motorcycles and achieving the goal of parity with Euro 5 gasoline passenger cars.
