In recognition of those many individuals – off-road riding enthusiasts, powersports industry
members, consumer groups, legislators and more – who have made
relentless efforts to gain an exemption for youth Off-Highway Vehicles
(OHVs) from the CPSIA of
2008, known as the lead law, American Honda has extended its congratulations to all involved with the bill’s passage.

“Three years ago, the entire industry sent out a call to mobilize all riding enthusiasts to combat the unintended consequences of the CPSIA,” said Powersports Press Manager Bill Savino. “The fact that H.R. 2715 has become law really emphasizes how much we all can do when we pull together to protect our sport. This is a proud day for all powersports enthusiasts.”

The CPSIA, which went into effect on February 10, 2009, essentially created a ban on the sale of youth motorcycles and ATVs. Honda stated that the enactment of H.R. 2715 to exempt youth off-road recreational vehicles stands as a great accomplishment for the millions of riders who advocate safe and responsible OHV recreation.
