To secure these certifications, Knievel Cycles had to meet or exceed European Union 03 emission standards, as well as meet 26 separate vehicle quality, safety, and emissions directives.

In late 2010 Knievel Cycles introduced its first three bikes with European Community Whole Vehicle Type Approval certification, the Evel One Springer Bobber, the Evel Commemorative Softail Bobber, and Evel Commemorative Rigid Bobber. The latest additions to the Knievel line-up are known as "fat tire" customs utilizing a 300 mm wide rear tire that gives these motorcycles an American custom look and style. The Vehicle Type Approval for these fat tire customs makes Knievel Cycles the only U.S. manufacturer approved to offer fat tire motorcycles for sale in all 27 member communities of the European Union.

Greg Zappala, president of Knievel Cycles, said, "With the addition of our newly approved models, and soon to be released cafe racer, we believe we can offer European dealers the full spectrum of bikes needed to satisfy the demand of the American motorcycle enthusiast in Europe."

Zappala said they are actively seeking new partners in Europe to expand their product network. He said any European dealers who are interested may contact them at [email protected].
