The Motorised Bike Manufacturers Association of America says the motorcycle industry needs to look at ‘more effective’ ways to regulate motorcycles
Motorized bikes have been around for a while, but the motorcycle makers association says the industry needs more effective regulations.
The Motorized Bike Manufacturing Association of American (MBAA) says the US Motorcycle Safety and Assurance Commission has over 20 million members.
It has the power to create mandatory rules to govern the production, sale, sale and use of motorcycles.
But a review of the industry shows some manufacturers have not implemented the rules, and that could mean they could face a fine, penalties and a potential ban.
The association says it has no plans to ban or regulate the motorcycles, but it says that’s not a good way to regulate the industry.
“The motorcycle industry should look at the ways that it can better regulate and manage this industry,” said Dave Harker, chairman of the association.
“More effective regulation is necessary, especially if this is the new normal for the motorcycle.”
Harker says there are more than 30,000 motorcycle manufacturers in the US, and the industry is growing rapidly.
The industry is booming and there are now about 7,000 dealerships operating in the country, according to the National Association of Manufacturers.
Harkers study found there were 1,400 licensed motorcycle dealerships in the United States, and another 2,000 in California.
The study found that sales of motorized bikes in the states grew by 25 per cent from 2014 to 2016, while motorcyclists accounted for about 30 per cent of motorcycle sales.
In addition, motorcyclist injuries have grown significantly in recent years.
Hakan Ergun, a former president of the National Motorcycle Association, said the study showed there were many factors at play.
“There are a lot of things that go into this industry that have not been considered,” Ergun said.
“We need to get a handle on the issue of safety and safety is something that should be a priority.”
Safety is something we need to talk about more.
“The study said that while manufacturers are responsible for setting minimum standards for safety, it also should be regulated by a set of federal standards.
The AMA also says that safety standards need to be set on motorcycles, and not by government.”
As we move toward a more automated society, manufacturers should be able to develop safety systems that are safe, efficient, and affordable for all consumers,” said Harkers report.”
This means developing an integrated safety framework that works for all of us, and is appropriate for the future of the motorcycle.
“That is a critical component to building a safer, more reliable, and more affordable motorcycle industry.”
